The website for musician Musicradar reviewed the Markbass EVO 1, saying it "could well be the amp that takes bass modelling into the mainstream."
Here are some excerpts from the review:
Markbass has never been a company to rest on its laurels.
Modelling amps for bassists don’t come much easier to use, or better-sounding, than this.
Anyway, these are incredibly accurate representations of the original amps’ sounds: it’s great fun switching between them and comparing sounds on the fly.
In use, the EVO 1 couldn’t be easier; just select your amp, adjust your EQ and you’re good to go.
We loved this amp. It’s a real gigging tool, and it’s so easy to edit your sound on the go.
Although it ‘only’ pushes out about 300 watts into an 8 ohm cab, the MPT (Mark Propriety Technology) class D power amp design gives plenty of headroom and more clean volume than you’ll probably ever need.
As well as the Octave and Chorus, there’s a compressor, envelope filter, reverb and delay, all with parameters you can tweak to get them sounding just as you wish.
"This is so sweet. Markbass, the amplifier company whose products I use and love, asked us endorsers to submit a backing track for folks to play on top of. There have been many lovey interpretations of mine and I'm really enjoying this one."
