An iconic combo that changed the sound of blues/rock guitar.

From the first notes of John Mayall’s 1966 album, Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton, it was clear rock guitar would never sound the same. Clapton’s aggressive approach and singing, thick tone introduced the world to the glorious, cranked Marshall amp sound.

Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 plug-in is the first emulation of the legendary 2x12 combo used on this landmark session. Not only is it an expert emulation of this nearly unobtainable British classic, it also offers powerful multi-mic sounds to dial-in studio-perfect amp tones.

Now You Can:

Use your Apollo with Unison™ technology to track through the only authentic Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 emulation — with no latency

Re-amp previously recorded tracks with any UAD-2 hardware

Dial-in perfect studio amp tones with seven mics in three different microphone combinations — FET, Valve, and Dynamic

Fine-tune your guitar tones with 50 presets by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt

The Only True Bluesbreaker Emulation

The Only True Bluesbreaker Emulation

To model the legendary Bluesbreaker, Marshall loaned Softube’s engineers an original, all stock, Series 1 1962 combo — the exact type used on the historic Blues Breakers session. Valued at over $30,000, Softube thoroughly emulated the amp’s alnico speakers, tremolo circuit, and dual KT66 power section.

Classic Marshall Tones and More

Classic Marshall Tones and More

WIth its open-back cabinet and ability to “jump” the inputs to dial-in high-powered tube tones. the Bluesbreaker plug-in is capable of more than Clapton-esque grind. From chimey clean tones to rich, on-the-edge of breakup textures, the Bluesbreaker thrives in pop and country settings.

Voiced by a Legend

Voiced by a Legend

Producer/engineer Tony Platt has recorded some of the most quintessential Marshall tones ever committed to tape — most notably AC/DC’s landmark albums, Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Softube enlisted Platt to capture exquisite cabinet and microphone simulations using his Platinum-approved, tried-and-true mic recipes. You can choose from 50 Platt-designed presets, or craft your own tones.

Mix Between Expertly Placed Microphones

Mix Between Expertly Placed Microphones

Open the plug-in’s Channel Strip section, and select any of the three microphone combinations. You get pan and level control over each of the four microphones per combination, allowing precision fine-tuning — during tracking or mix down. No matter the genre, or type of guitar, you’re afforded tons of tweakable options, from pin-point single miked tones to roars of glorious room ambience.

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Bluesbreaker Tones

Unison™ Technology for Authentic Bluesbreaker Tones

The interaction of your guitar’s pickups to an amp’s front end is crucial to capturing the tone and feel of the amplifier. With UA’s Unison technology, Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into a vintage Marshall Bluesbreaker — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

Excellent JTM tones..

This is, hands down, the best amp sim I have used...pretty shocking, really. I'm usually not a big fan of amp sims, and strongly prefer playing cranked tube amps. That being said, I personally feel like the UA Marshall sims are the best out of all the available UA amps...the Silver Jubilee, Plexi and Bluesbreaker being my favorites. I was demo-ing a number of the UA amp plug-ins, and while a lot of them sound pretty decent, this Bluesbreaker stands above the rest. The combination of the the very detailed emulation of the kt-66-ish fat warmth and the various mic/cab configurations that give very realistic room-sounds just make this sim a pure joy to play. I was lost in playing the many excellent-sounding presets for hours...very, very similar to the real-deal. While all the presets sound like a bluesbreaker/jtm amp, there are many different tones to be had, from warm cleans to various dirty and overdriven sounds. The thing that really makes this one stand above the rest though is that it behaves similar to an actual tube amp...responds well to subtle differences in picking, volume/tone knob adjustments, etc. This sim with a plate-reverb plug-in is just killer. The only downsides are the high price, and that there can be some very slight, strange harmonics generated here and there...probably not noticeable in a mix though. So, if it's not possible for you to crank up an actual bluesbreaker amp for home-playing/recording, this is a very close alternative to check out.

Bluesbreaker delight

Now I’ve had my new Marshall Bluesbreaker plug for almost one month. Firstly I must confess I also own the ”real” deal i.e. a 1962 Marshall Bluesbreaker that’s been with me for over 15 years. I love the sound from it, so in order to make things easier and more comfortable - I just had to get this plug in from UAD.
I must say I am stunned over how great this plug sounds, and how easy handled it is. Now I have completed my virtual amp setup by four fantastic plug ins from UAD. Last but not least, a fantastic Bluesbreaker.
Thanks for that...

Like the Original!!!

Love this Amp. Sounds amazing with a Single Coil or Humbucker equipped Guitars!

My favourite

My favourite of all the available amp models on the UAD platform so far. Made for the blues and is perhaps a one trick pony in that sense. I love the organic and natural open sound of this amp, its modelled with so much love to the character and the selection mic choices each add a unique flour and dynamic. Plug and play is simple and responsive. in over a year of using this plug I still enjoy jamming and playing around with this one as much as using it as recoding tool

Bluesbreaker 1962

By best plugin amp to date, it is really plug and play. I even use this to practice instead of my Carr Rambler, with I love. If you should have only one amp in your computer, this should be the one !

Muy bueno!

Lo use para procesar algunas guitarras que tenia grabadas y el sonido es muy parecido al ampli original

Great sound, problematic harmonics

Sounds amazing, but there are definitely overtones that sound either a minor 6th or a 5th below the fundamental note. The other softube Amps do not have this problem. I hope it gets corrected since this is an excellent plugin for jazz and other deep tones.

Blues....

Sonido gordo y calido, gran posibilidad de microfoneo, se siente la "valvula" dando vueltas! Una buena imitacion para tener esa lead guitar de caracter.

Caution...hot!

Another gem in the UAD/Softube collection. Warmer and darker than any another Marshall, but super-dynamic and with tons of character. You can really get some beautiful Beano-like clean/crunch sounds controlling the saturation with your pick. It is probably the most “specific” plug-in of the Marshall Legend bundle, but it certainly delivers that Holy-Grail-Tone!

Incredible!

just so you know, Im not a guitarist but I recognise a good sounding virtual amp when I hear one.
I've gone back to some tracks, which some live guitar was played on, and the transformation the Bluesbreaker delivered, was incredible. It brought body, and a richness I would have found hard to get any other way. Also It's great with a Rhodes through it.
Highly recommend it.

Love it!

We've been doing a few recordings with it and everyone is really liking it. Being able to use it as a monitoring solution while keeping your options open for the final mix is very useful.

Best Modeled Amp I've Used

This feels the closest to a real amp of any sim I've tried yet. I even used it live a few days ago in place of an amp, and you couldn't tell in the house. Usually I feel the lack of connectivity between the guitar and a digital in, but whatever UA did with the unison preamps makes a big difference. In the studio environment the room mics make all the difference for rearing a real sound. Obviously it's not going to be identical to a real Bluesbreaker, but regardless of its accuracy to the original, it is the best sounding, and more importantly feeling, amp sim I've used.

Oh mama.....

Love this as much as JMP plug in. As a confirmed JMP and bluesbreaker veteran of 40yrs I never thought I would say this but I never thought I would use a digital version of my own plexi Marshall. So much easier and sounds just right Goldilocks.....

Hands down great tones!

Very life like and accurate emulation. Beats any other non-Unison plugin I have used. The sound can feel a bit withdrawn used with a strat but with a bit of EQ it cuts through better. The tremolo is quite subtle – but that is how it is on a real Bluesbreaker, too... All in all a very cool and versatile amp.

Very believable!

Look, it's not going to feel exactly like you're playing a real Bluesbreaker but once tracked and tweaked, it sounds veeerrry believable. I did a rough track just to test it out and sent it over to my bandmates for a lark. I have bandmates who are quite honest and harsh with comments and the fact that my recording of a guitar part using this plugin gets past them is a personal testament to how real it can sound.

Other positive findings include the ability to choose different mics which affect different tones achievable, the ability to jump the channels for more tones... And the biggest advantage of all- to achieve these tones at room volume. All-in-all, a great plugin. Can't wait for the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe to go on sale.

Strange "undertones"

The core sound of this amp is really good, but once you start playing single notes and solo stuff, the strange things start to happen. Undertones that makes this plugin not that very useful to me. Too bad. Could have been a great one!
