4Front Bass Module is a FREE load & play VSTi software bass synthesizer that "generates a high quality bass sound".
With the proprietary 4Front hybrid synthesis technology, 4Front modules take generally smaller space than the sampled versions of the same quality, and the CPU usage is optimal.
Nice free instrument. It's simple, not much CPU usage. The sound is ... not that bad, but can't be useful in my opinion.
I use a lot the 4Front products to test my system, you can directly see if all is working.Read Review
Is one of the best free bass vst.It sounds great and can be used to many different music styles.I have use it with many versions of Fruity Loos from 8-9-12-20 and never had any problem and is too "light".Read Review
Very usable sound, better than some basses included in Daws. No tweaking, wysiwyg. Great free bass vst, works well in cubase 6.5 64-bit.Read Review
This is my go-to Bass guitar VSTi. Absolutely one of my favorites. I've got a few others I've used, but this one coupled with the BassGrinder amp... MAN.
Yes, it's got the classic Fender P-Bass sound. it just needs coupling with the right bass amp mod to get the right tone for your needs. You could porbably do the "Another Brick in the wall" bass tone with very little tweaking on whatever bass amp mod you prefer.
As I've mentioned in other reviews, so that you all know where I'm coming from, I'm a metal guitar player, and like just about everyone else here, I'm self taught in keyboards.
I tried using the pre-recorded samples, and wasn't happy with those. So I downloaded about six different bass VSTi's, and I've used this one the most. very little CPU usage, decent sound right off the bat. I tend you like growly basses, like Gibsons (I used to have a G3 and a Grabber... never did get that Thunderbird, alas!)
I'd say that on probably 70% of my album, this was the bass I turned to right away. The others... well, I'll probably be redoing those with this VST.
It's free, low CPU, sounds great, easy to mix and match to whatever sound you need... To me, it's a no-brainer.
Now, if you're a knob tweaker, it's gonna frustrate you. There's nothing to tweak. but whatever Bass amp mod you use, hey, tweak to your heart's content.
I'm usually writing my MIDI with one instance of it, then I duplicate the track once it's done in Reaper. I'll pan them equally (between 8% and 12% to give separation from the drums). It helps to think like a bass player... octave pops are something bass players are fond of, so if you're doing a phrase twice, do one rep in an upper octave and one in a lower. But that's getting more into the territory of a tutorial, and not a review.
You can listen to it here! The Fifth Seal features my imitation of a Gibson bass...
A little louder in the mix on this one.
