Virtual Electric, Acoustic and Synth Bass VSTi


The bass guitar (also called electric bass, or simply bass) is a stringed instrument played primarily with the fingers or thumb, by plucking, slapping, popping, strumming, tapping, thumping, or picking with a plectrum, often known as a pick. The double bass, also called a violono and often simply a bass, is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra. It is a transposing instrument and is typically notated one octave higher than sounding to avoid excessive ledger lines. The double bass is the only modern bowed string instrument that is tuned in fourths (like a viol), rather than fifths, with strings usually tuned to E1, A1, D2 and G2. The instrument's exact lineage is still a matter of some debate, with scholars divided on whether the bass is derived from the viol or the violin family. The bass synthesizer (or "bass synth") is used to create sounds in the bass range, from simulations of the electric bass or double bass to distorted, buzz-saw-like artificial bass sounds, by generating and combining signals of different frequencies. Bass synth patches may incorporate a range of sounds and tones, including wavetable-style, analog, and FM-style bass sounds, delay effects, distortion effects, envelope filters. A modern digital synthesizer uses a frequency synthesizer microprocessor component to generate signals of different frequencies. While most bass synths are controlled by electronic keyboards or pedalboards, some performers use an electric bass with MIDI pickups to trigger a bass synthesizer.

  • Virtual Bass Pedalboard. Provides 5 virtual pedals which can certainly offer you a wide range of bass sounds:

    • Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) (Virtual Pedal #1): The knobs include modulation depth, frequency, offset for expressive Tremolo effects. 

    • 5-Band Parametric Equalizer (Virtual Pedal #2): EQ composed of five parametric filters with frequency, bandwidth and gain knobs. Equalization allows you to lower or raise the volume of specific frequency ranges for bass and treble manipulation. Also contains global gain wheel to adjust the overall volume (Turn the wheel to right to boost a band, or to left to decrease its level).

    • Compressor Sustainer Effects (Virtual Pedal #3): 'Attack' determines how fast the compression reacts. 'Sustain' controls the amount of compression and 'Release' how quickly the sound fades when a note ends.

    • Moog Lowpass Filter (Virtual Pedal #4): It contains two functions: "Pitch", controls the Filter's cutoff frequency and "Resonance" emphasizes the cutoff frequency.

    • Reverb Bass (Virtual Pedal #5): Customizable with user controls for: size room, width room, damping factor & mixer. Bass players will find that the module adds richness to the final sound with the proportion of the " dry / wet " signal in the output. 

  • Includes Bass HarmonicsClick On Icon To Stream m3u playlist -> Fiddler's Dram/Whiskey Before Breakfast (Traditional Irish, Bluegrass) Mandolin for Fingered BassClick On Icon To Stream m3u playlist -> Fiddler's Dram/Whiskey Before Breakfast (Traditional Irish, Bluegrass) Mandolin, Picked BassClick On Icon To Stream m3u playlist -> Fiddler's Dram/Whiskey Before Breakfast (Traditional Irish, Bluegrass) Mandolin and Muted BassClick On Icon To Stream m3u playlist -> Fiddler's Dram/Whiskey Before Breakfast (Traditional Irish, Bluegrass) Mandolin in notes starting from C5.

  • 64 presets ready to play: for tremolo and reverb effects, modulations for parametric Eq, and Compressor Sustainer parameters to modulate Synth Bass Pads. Creating new sounds is as simple as combining these presets in different ways and tweaking any associated parameters from there as desired.

  • Portamento (Glide control): A gliding effect that allows a sound to change pitch at a gradual rate, rather than abruptly, when a new key is pressed or MIDI note sent. 

  • MIDI Channel selector : 1 to 16 channels.

  • FULL MIDI Automation: Complete MIDI Continuous Controller. You can use this to automate parameter changes from a sequencer, or to control your synthesizers from an external MIDI control surface.

Windows Operating System: Native dll file for Windows® XP, Windows® Vista, Windows® 7, Windows® 8 / x86 (32 bit). For x64 (64 bit) test the demo plugin with your host internal bit bridge as in Cubase (VST Bridge), FL Studio (Bridged mode), Cakewalk Sonar, X2, X3 (BitBridge) or via external jBridge application for Ableton Live, PreSonus Studio One, etc. - Apple Mac OS X and macOS Sierra: See options available for Macintosh users in Universal Binary and Sample Libraries for Mac (Audio Unit, VST for Mac, NI Kontakt NKI Files, Apple Logic EXS24 MkII Sample Library) Linux Operating System: with the following requirements (Special Thanks to Paul Davis).

Keyboard bass (sometimes referred as a synth bass) is the use of a low-pitched keyboard or pedal keyboard to substitute for the bass guitar or double bass in music.
