PDQ Bass (Pretty Darn Quick Bass) is a bass guitar library designed to help producers, composers and songwriters quickly lay down an aggressive bass track for songwriting or demo purposes.

{See video at top of page}

It combines traditional sampling methods with physical modelling techniques to extend the range of the recorded instrument.

It does not uses keyswitches, nor does it include every articulation and nuance found in more solo-focussed bass guitar libraries, PDQ Bass only includes what it needs for fast writing.

PDQ Bass is the answer for when you just need a consistent bass sound fast and sounding great. It comes with a DI and a Processed version.

Here are some audio demos, the only processing is from the master buss:


Non-Repeating Round Robin (alt pick.):

The playback engine cycles between five RR samples and never repeats the same one twice.

Four Articulations:

PDQ Bass comes with Palm Mutes, Fingered, Alt. Picked and Slapped articulations, controlled by velocity. Range from F1 - E5.

Velocity Compression:

Use the Velocity Min and Velocity Max to compress incoming MIDI information, removing any articulations you don't want (such as palm mutes) without having to edit a single note.

Simple Writing:

No keyswitches. Use low-velocity for palm mutes and fingered, and high velocity for sustained alt. picking, maximum velocity is for slapped notes.

It's intuitive and fast, and you can copy Achromic MIDI straight to a PDQ track and have matching articulations and a cohesive sound.

Force Downpick:

The Downpick switch mutes the up-stroke articulations. This can be automated using any DAW's inbuilt automation.

Pitch-Bend and FX Keys:

Bend the pitch with any MIDI controller, or use DAW automation.

Mix Page

Simple mix page with Compression and EQ to shape the sound.

Direct Signal and Processed Tone:

PDQ comes with a DI version, as well as an already processed instrument for when you don't want to mess with FX chains and just start writing.
