Bassesland Electric, Acoustic and Synth Bass


Bassesland Virtual Bass VST VST3 Audio Unit 

Acoustic, Electric and Synth Basses

The bass guitar (also called electric bass, or simply bass) is a stringed instrument played primarily with the fingers or thumb, by plucking, slapping, popping, strumming, tapping, thumping, or picking with a plectrum, often known as a pick. The double bass, also called a violono and often simply a bass, is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra. It is a transposing instrument and is typically notated one octave higher than sounding to avoid excessive ledger lines. The double bass is the only modern bowed string instrument that is tuned in fourths (like a viol), rather than fifths, with strings usually tuned to E1, A1, D2 and G2. The instrument's exact lineage is still a matter of some debate, with scholars divided on whether the bass is derived from the viol or the violin family. The bass synthesizer (or "bass synth") is used to create sounds in the bass range, from simulations of the electric bass or double bass to distorted, buzz-saw-like artificial bass sounds, by generating and combining signals of different frequencies. Bass synth patches may incorporate a range of sounds and tones, including wavetable-style, analog, and FM-style bass sounds, delay effects, distortion effects, envelope filters. A modern digital synthesizer uses a frequency synthesizer microprocessor component to generate signals of different frequencies. While most bass synths are controlled by electronic keyboards or pedalboards, some performers use an electric bass with MIDI pickups to trigger a bass synthesizer. 



Bassesland is a virtual bass that emulates a wide range of sounds of electric, acoustic and synthesizer basses. Available as plugin in VST 32 bit and 64 bit and VST3 64 bit versions for Windows as well as in Audio Unit, VST and VST3 for macOS.

The sounds ranging from several electric bass guitars, including harmonics, slides, slaps, muted, wah effect and fills, going by an upright acoustic double bass, an electro acoustic bass to synth bass emulations based on vintage synthesizer like ARP 2600, Clavia Nord Lead, Kawai K3, Korg 01/W, Minilogue, MS2000, Memorymoog, Micromoog 2090, Minimoog Model D, Little Phatty, Minitaur, Prodigy, System 55, Taurus Bass Pedal, Oberheim OB-Xa, OSC OSCar, Roland Juno-60, Juno-106, JX-3P, JX-8P, MC-909, TB-303 and Yamaha DX7. ShamiKoto Virtual Koto and Shamisen for macOS: Audio Units and VST for macOS ↓ KONTAKT Sample Library (.nki) ↓ Logic EXS24 Sample Library ↓

• Tremolo Section: The low-frequency oscillator knobs apply modulation to the selected instrument. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo to a huge variety of acoustic, electric and synthetic emulations available. Enabling 'Destination' by selecting 'Panning' mode applies a rhythmic variation in amplitude in the stereo field.

Ø Rate: This knob controls the frequency. Turn clockwise for a faster modulation rate.
Ø Depth: This knob controls the amplitude. With a lower setting, the resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a much more extreme effect.

The following combo boxes settings adds motion or variability to sounds:

Ø WaveForm: Switches between ‘Triangle’, ‘Sine’, ‘Saw’, ‘Square’ and ‘Exponential’ waveforms.
Source: Switches between ‘Modulation Wheel’, ‘Aftertouch’ and ‘Velocity’.
Destination: Switches between ‘Pitch’, ‘Expression’ and ‘Pan’ modulation.


• ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters:

Ø Attack determines the time it takes for the note to get to the maximum level.
Ø Decay determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level to the sustain level (controlled by Sustain).
Ø Sustain determines level the sound is played at while the note is held (after the other envelope states, Attack and Decay, have been completed).
Ø Release determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is released.

• Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.

Ø Pitch Bend center position: is normal pitch.
Ø Pitch Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.
Ø Pitch Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved the right.

• Reverb built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.

• Filter Type. Combo box to switch between the following options:

Ø Low Pass (LPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher than the cutoff frequency.
Ø High Pass (HPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency.
Ø None: No filter is applied. 
Ø Cutoff Frequency Filter: Sets the cutoff frequency for the low pass and high pass filters.

• Amplitude Range Parameters: It controls the loudness, the way in which we perceive amplitude.The sensitivity level is set by the user:

Ø Amplitude range (low) - sets amplitude range, lower bound (dB) 
Ø Amplitude range (high) - sets amplitude range, upper bound (dB)

• Volume: Adjusts the volume of the instrument.

• Panning potentiometer control: Set the panning of the instrument. Adjusts the stereo pan position of the signal output, which determines how much of signal is sent to the left and right channels.

• Spatial auralization: Synthesizer emulations brings a stereophonic sound panning to increase the audible perspective, even without using the built-in reverberation or LFO pan effect.

• MIDI CC Automation: Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW, such as: LFO depth (CC#1), expression (CC#11), volume (CC#7), pan (CC#10), balance (CC#8), filter cutoff (CC#74), ADSR (Attack: CC#73, Decay: CC#75, Sustain: CC#76, Release: CC#72) and reverb depth (CC#91).
