Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray: Exceptionally realistic virtual model of a Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray dual bucker 5-string bass guitar for Kontakt Player.

truBass Technology: Experience unparalleled realism with our industry-leading truBass engine, delivering the authentic feel and dynamic response of a real bass guitar.

20 Performance Articulations: Alternate Picking, Slap, Pop, Slide, Ghost Notes, Hammer On, Pull Off, Tap, Palm Mute and more allow for recreating even the most complex bass lines.

Intelligent Alternate Picking: Immediately realistic playback with logic-based, automatic alternate picking.

Multi-Sampling: Every fret position across the entire instrument has been multi-sampled, so you can program the performance exactly as a real bassist would play it.

Raw DI: The pure, unprocessed signal, directly from the bass guitar. Treat it like you would a regular bass performance (except that it’s actually good!).

Pre-Mixed Tones: Instantly elevate your tracks with two professionally crafted, mix-ready tones, designed for seamless integration into any project.

Integrated Mixer: Fine-tune your sound with our built-in mixer. Curated controls create the fastest way to tailor the included tones to your music.

Interactive Fretboard: Visualize your bass lines in real-time with an intuitive fretboard display, enhancing your connection with the instrument.

truSlides: Fully controllable, variable tempo slides from any note to any other note give you complete control over your performance.

truLegato: Easy, automatic hammer on/pull-off articulation logic, so you can get on with being creative.

Humanize Control: Infuse your performance with natural variation using the Humanize control, adding subtle differences for a more organic feel.

Position Control: Think of this as a virtual capo, shifting your virtual playing position up the fretboard, selecting higher frets and creating a rounder sound - just like in real life.

Force String: Gain complete control over your tone, allowing you to choose exactly which string is used for every note.

Pitch Bend: Bend the notes (and vibrato) up to 12 semitones!

'DOOM' Mode: A specialized mode focusing on the most impactful, clear samples with maximized velocity for aggressive musical styles, such as EDM.

Custom Keyswitch Mapping: Tailor your workflow with customizable keyswitch mapping, allowing you to assign and access different articulations and techniques on the fly.

Why Virtual Bass?

  • For Musicians

    If you're writing and producing your own music, a MIDI bass can be a real game changer. It's simple: it saves you time. Instead of getting caught up in the details of recording a bass track, you can add a MIDI bass line to your project. It sounds great and it's super flexible – you can tweak it until it fits your song right. Now you can stay focused on the song, not the bass part. We want to make it easier for you to create music and record your ideas.

  • For Studio Engineers

    It's a reality in the studio world – sometimes the real bass track just doesn't cut it. Maybe there's a quality issue or time is running short. That's where our virtual bass comes in. It's not just for sketching out ideas; our instruments have replaced real bass tracks on final studio records more often than you'd think. Think of it as an insurance policy: having a solid MIDI bass option means you're covered, no matter what happens during recording. It's about having that reliable, high-quality sound ready at a moment's notice.

  • For Pre-Production

    A lot of big-name producers have given us props for one simple reason: speed and realism. With our virtual bass, you can quickly lay down a MIDI bass line that's not just realistic, but also perfectly in tune. It's a solid foundation that a lot of pros use to anchor their guitar recordings. They appreciate not having to fuss over getting the bass part just right before moving on to guitars – it's all about keeping the session flowing smoothly.

Guitar Friendly Bass Plugin

Such Heavy Tones with personality. Was a bit skeptical but after getting to understand the plugin (which is my first Submission Plugin) it aint as scary as it seems. Sounds Killer & can't wait to check out the library!

Owen Hanson
Well.. It sounds good..

I find plenty of promotional material but minimal instructional/tutorials to get started, im struggling to get going with it. No tutorials in kontakt, but some in cubase.. Which i dont have. Maybe im just a dumb bassist but i could get fl to work

Hi Owen,

Vernest Cantrell
Great bass library

This library is fantastic! The great low end and good clang is perfect for modern rock and most heavy metal recordings!

It's just there!

NocturnalBass sits in the mix really well right out of the box!
