Plugin Alliance announces brand partnership with American bass amp designer Gallien Krueger with the release of the 800RB bi-amp plugin.

Plugin Alliance has announced its latest brand partnership with acclaimed American bass amp designer Gallien Krueger along with the release of the 800RB bi-amp plugin.


The 800RB shapes your tone by treating high and low frequencies separately. Known for its clean, transparent body, and highly regarded for its versatility, the original hardware was used on countless hit records from bands of different genres ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Guns ’n’ Roses, Green Day, No Doubt, and many more.


800RB users can shape the high- and low-end tone using the separate knobs for the 100W AMP and 300W AMP, achieving the perfect blend of bass and bite. Patented voicing filters bring a whopping four-band active equalization section, together with the three (LO CUT, MID CONTOUR, and HI BOOST) boosters assisting anyone with articulating the tone that they are aiming for.


The bi-amplified architecture of 800RB provides users with two different power amps, one for the lows and one for the highs. An adjustable crossover frequency knob controls which frequencies go to which power amp, and there are separate master volume knobs for each amp, making it easy to dial in the sweet spot for the desired tone.


Thanks to the bi-amped design, the Gallien Krueger 800RB amp plugin features not one but two separate recording chain modules for each amp each containing 64 speaker cabinet impulse responses that the user can run their bass signal through; while selecting from a variety of highly-coveted mics, cabinets, and carefully-chosen outboard gear with which to individually tweak the character of each amp. All are topped with a selection of useful tools, including Phase Invert, Solo, and Auto mode, while an always-available FX RACK includes Noise Gate, Amp Filtering, and Noise Soak.


The 800RB plugin provides more than just an exacting emulation of the original amp as a versatile virtual addition to anyone’s DAW-driven recording world.
