MODO Bass

Virtual Bass Guitar by IK Multimedia

MODO BASS

MODO Bass is the first physically modeled bass virtual instrument that gives you an unprecedented realistic performance for your bass tracks.

As a producer, you want the best possible bass sound you can get... you want realism, credibility and authenticity that delivers the most accurate and inspiring performance. Sometimes you just can't hire the right bass player, and some virtual instruments out there can leave you flat and uninspired.

Enter MODO Bass — the industry's first true physically modeled instrument from the leader in analog modeling technology. 8 years in the making and developed in collaboration with one of Europe's oldest universities, MODO Bass is a completely new breed of instrument that delivers the best of both worlds: the realism and sound of an instrument being played by a master musician and the convenience of a plug-in virtual instrument.
