The Quintessential Rock Amp

The Marshall JMP 2203, introduced in 1975, became the amp against which all other rock amps were compared. Artists who used it included Jeff Beck, Andy Summers, Tom Morello, AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Slayer, the Pixies and more. It was created out of demand for an amp with a master volume, which made it possible to get a distorted sound without the ear-splitting sound pressure levels, which expanded the sonic options a lot. By keeping the preamp gain down and getting most of the distortion from the power amp, you get more of a 1960s Marshall sound. By turning the master volume down and the preamp volume up, you get an edgier and more present distortion. The father of the JCM 800, with the same character and the true sound of rock and hard rock.

  • Amp Room Ready: works as a native plug-in and as a module in Amp Room, Softube's pro audio guitar platform.

The Marshall JMP 2203 was introduced in 1975. It quickly replaced the Plexi as the go-to Marshall amp and became the amp against which all other rock amps were compared. Artists who used it included Jeff Beck, Andy Summers, Tom Morello, AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Slayer, the Pixies, and more.

Marshall JMP 2203 is a super accurate plug-in version of the real thing, produced in partnership with Marshall from the reference 2203 amp that Marshall themselves use to define the true 2203 sound in the Marshall museum. The plug-in was component modelled down to the smallest details, resulting in flawless sound quality so you can let there be rock.

The True Rock and Hard Rock Sound

The Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in is a precise emulation of the reference unit from the Marshall museum. The father of the JCM800, it has the same character and the true sound of rock and hard rock.

Guaranteed to Rock

The speaker cabinet was recorded by Tony Platt, who is famous for having recorded AC/DC’s landmark albums Highway to Hell and Back in Black.

Authentic Marshall Sound From Any Setup

Set up the mics exactly the way you need them to get exactly the great sounds you need from this legendary amplifier.

Amp Room Ready

This plug-in can be used within Amp Room, Softube's pro audio guitar & bass platform.

A Rock Amp With Marshall Heritage

The JMP 2203 was created out of demand for an amp with a master volume, which made it possible to get a distorted sound without the ear-splitting sound pressure levels this caused with a non-master volume amp like the Marshall Plexi. This change expanded the sonic options a lot.

By keeping the preamp gain down and getting most of the distortion from the power amp, you get more of a 1960s Marshall sound. By turning the master volume down and the preamp volume up, you get an edgier and more present distortion. All of this has been modeled with the highest precision in the plug-in.

Engineered by a Legend

Producer and engineer Tony Platt, who recorded some of the best Marshall tones ever committed to tape on some of the most rocking albums of all time – AC/DC’s Highway to Hell and Back in Black – masterfully captured the sound of a Marshall 1960B cabinet equipped with Celestion G12-75 speakers to pair with the JMP 2203 amp plug-in.

Platt recorded the cabinet with 5 microphones (2 dynamic, 3 condenser) with the ability to blend 2 together, carefully selected to give a wide variety of tones and positioned to sound fantastic when used in combination with each other. Nothing comes close to the mix-ready magic of these sounds. Softube built a world-class engineer right into the plug-in.

A Complete Workflow for Mix-Ready Guitar Tones

Open the channel strip to the right of the amplifier head by clicking the aluminium side with the white Channel Strip sticker, and a panel appears with options to help you blend and tweak your sounds until they’re mix-ready.

Use Mic Select to choose microphones for each of the two channels. Four of the microphones were placed close to the 1960B cabinet with G12-75 speakers, and one was used as a room mic. Use Pan to select the channel’s position in the stereo panorama. Activate or deactivate a channel with In. Use Volume fader to set the volume level of the channel.

The Input Gate shuts off the sound when guitar isn’t playing. Lower settings let through more low-level sounds, while higher settings make the gate more discriminating. Mid, High and Low Gain set the boost or cut values of each of the three EQ bands. Mid Freq sets the operating frequency of the Mid band. The Clip Indicator lights up when the output is too loud, and the Master Out turns the overall output level up of down. With all of these options, you can mix your ideal sound right there in the plug-in.

Perfect for Amp Room

Marshall JMP 2203 comes with modules that are fully integrated into the Amp Room ecosystem and sound exactly the same as the native version of the plug-in. If you already own Amp Room, you definitely need this amp.

Amp Room is the pro audio guitar and bass platform, designed with sound quality as top priority. It’s just like having a real amplifier with a miked up speaker cabinet in a high-end studio – with the added convenience of more options to patch in any kind of studio tool you need anywhere in the chain.

Softube & Marshall: A Partnership Based on Sound Quality

Softube’s first prototype was a hardware DSP box running a Marshall amp model and a loudspeaker model. This attracted Marshall’s interest and led to a successful long-term partnership between Softube and Marshall. Softube is Marshall’s exclusive software partner, and Amp Room comes with the only amps and cabs available in software form that are officially licensed and endorsed by Marshall.
