Pfundstein Audio Plugins has released BassLine Buster Std 8, a virtual instrument featuring the sounds of an octave 8-string bass guitar with string pairs similar to 12-string guitars.
The market is filled with great MIDI bass plug-ins - 4-strings, 5-strings, fretless, jazz, precision, etc., it's all there, in different qualities from free to expensive. Now the small company "Pfundstein Audio Plugins" offers an octave 8-string bass guitar with string pairs like you know it from 12-string guitars, sampled as a virtual instrument, available for VST3 hosts under Windows and macOS: BassLine Buster Std 8 VST3 plug-in
The original bass guitar was handcrafted in Germany by the instrument manufacturer "BassLine", the specialists in professional bass guitars. Premium electronics and custom components like the special ETS bridge and the unique headstock make this instrument an eyecatcher.
Pfundstein Audio Plugins says:
Not only the optic is unique, also the sound. 8-string basses like this are a great fit for ballads, melodic rock songs and epic tracks, outperforming normal basses with a massive tone. While not everybody is keen on this special sound, we all must agree it's truly special.
Producers and song-writers now have the opportunity to get this special sound as virtual bass using any VST3 compatible DAW. The plug-in comes with a simple GUI and is good for beginners and advanced users, who are interested in more features like different playing styles, alternative picking, slides, hammer on/pull of etc.
Also, the plug-in comes with two pre-amped sounds and the clean instrument output, so you can re-amp the signal with your own equipment or special amp simulation plug-ins.
All samples are in high resolution with lossless compression to save space on your hard drive.
Pfundstein Audio Plugins continues:
Honestly, the plug-in does not yet have as many samples and features as the big players in the market, but it's great sounding and the very only plug-in with the unique 8-string sound. For a fair price you can add this instrument to your collection and benefit from one sound-option more. Especially when you're working on epic tracks you should consider to get the plug-in.
Available in VST3 format Windows and MacOS, the virtual instrument is on sale at an introductory price of 25 EUR until the end of the year 2020 (Reg. €39).
