PunkBass は、友人たちとスケートパークで過ごした夏、膝までのカーゴパンツとウォレットチェーン、そして何よりもお父さんのギターで演奏されていたキャッチーなポップパンク音楽の、もっと単純な時代を思い出させる仮想ベース楽器です。 PunkBass は、音楽史におけるこの古典的な時代を牧歌的に体現しており、お気に入りのアーティストのトーンを直接指先で楽しむことができます。

Included Tones

  • DI

    Directly from the instrument, captured with meticulous attention to detail, using the finest recording gear available. You're the sculptor and this is your clay. The sky is the limit, and this tone can be whatever you desire.


    A throwback to the popular P-bass tones of the 90s and 00s. Lightly driven to bring out articulation, fret clank and string noise. Sits beautifully among rhythm guitars.


    Something a little more edgy. High-end analogue distortion, dialed up for a grimy, in-your-face fuzz sound that will fit right into even the densest wall of guitars.

Can I use this as an amp on my other bass tracks?

No. Licensing is handled via Native Access. This is completely free.

Is there a Trial mode of this product?

Does this product work in demo mode in Kontakt?

Demo mode occurs when a 3rd party sample library, not officially supported by Native Instruments, is loaded into Kontakt Player.

All of SubMission Audio's virtual bass instruments are officially supported by Native Instruments, so our customers don't need to worry about restrictions such as demo mode.

When using our virtual bass instruments with Kontakt Player, you will always have access to their complete feature set.

Do I have to buy Kontakt?

No. This product officially supports the free Kontakt Player. It will be fully functional with no limitations or restrictions. SubMission Audio has partnered with Native Instruments to provide this compatibility to our customers.

How many computers can I use this on?

In short: 1 user, 2 machines.

Michael Sly
Fit in my mix perfectly!

My brother sent me a song he was working on and right away I knew Punk Bass was going to fit perfectly. I literally did zero processing and it added exactly what his song needed. He loved the results. Perfect for when a Dingwall will not do.

Christian Hendricks
Perfect P-bass DI

This plug-in has saved my Hyde in quite a few tracks where the bass wasn’t tracked very well. I have only good things to say about punk bass, Especially for the price!

Patrick Lavoie
Best Punk Bass!

This plugin just have the tone needed for 90 punk music era. Make the mix perfect!

Jesse Johnson

It’s everything I wanted in a bass plug-in. Simple, intuitive, and great-sounding.

Loren Whitaker
Best Virtual P-Bass on the market BUT

BUT I think SubMission has now built enough of a virtual bass empire to do a truBass level treatment on a P-Bass, and that would be a 5/5 stars and I think I would sell my studio workhorse as a result
