Virtual Bassist offers real phrases played by studio bass players, covering a huge range of musical styles with its vast pool of sounds and grooves. Owners of Steinberg's other "Virtual Band" members Groove Agent (2), Virtual Guitarist and Virtual Guitarist Electric Edition will find a set of grooves that perfectly match the rhythm parts from those instruments, forming a powerful and versatile backing band. The integrated GrooveMatch technology allows users to quickly adapt their Virtual Bassist parts to drum grooves, molding bass parts to existing beats. Steinberg's Virtual Bassist is also designed to be eminently "playable", with MIDI keyboard notes selecting the pitch of the played groove while the Modulation wheel allows simultaneous and dynamic switching between groove complexity levels.
Virtual Bassist supports all major plug-in formats such as VST, DXi, and AU. ReWire support offers easy integration into Pro Tools, while the standalone version allows Virtual Bassist to be used without a host application.
Virtual Bassist is available for €239.00* and requires an installed Steinberg USB copy protection device (or Steinberg Key).
*SRP includes 16% German VAT. Prices subject to regional variations.
