Tones

ShinzBass-tones-yin.png__PID:80d42c06-fa58-4989-96c3-f69e3654ceeb

Yin (DI): The raw sound of the instrument, captured directly via high end, studio-grade recording hardware. Process as you would any other bass - using your favourite plugins, pedals or amps. This allows ultimate flexibility; mix the bass on your own terms.

ShinzBass-tones-rams-head.png__PID:2c06fa58-d989-46c3-b69e-3654ceebf012

Ram’s Head: A tone recreating Jason Suecof’s exact processing chain from Job For A Cowboy’s ‘Moon Healer’ album.
Think of this as a hot-rodded DI, expertly molded by a legendary producer to perfectly fit the gap between drums and guitars.

ShinzBass-tones-yang.png__PID:53eb80d4-2c06-4a58-9989-d6c3f69e3654

Yang: A classic ‘grit’ tone which can easily be pushed into distortion, based on Nick’s work with Havok. Ideal for heavier music.

The tuning range

The tuning range of ShinzBass is C0 up to A4. It’s been tuned perfectly across the entire note range, so it can act as a tuning reference whenever you’re recording guitars.

The DOOM button

Intentionally shrinks the round robin, giving you the most powerful, direct samples for reduced realism and greater consistency - for those times where variance is undesirable.

Humanize

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

The Position control is a convenient way to select where on the virtual fretboard you’d like the performance to take place.

For absolute control, our Force String articulation can select exactly which string each note is performed on, giving you the ability to tonally match your guitar riffs 1 to 1.

Use the Configuration menu to rebind keyswitches, set the tuning of the bass, and adjust the pitch bend range for ultimate customization to your personal workflow.

Native Instruments - Kontakt

As an official Native Instruments partner, ShinzBass runs in the industry standard free Kontakt Player, meaning you don’t have to worry about any additional hidden costs. Kontakt is the most widely used and widely compatible sampler in the industry, meaning there is a robust team of professionals available to make it work perfectly for you.

truBass Technology

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

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.

truSlides

Our truSlide algorithm can slide from any note on the virtual fretboard, to any other note, at whatever speed or velocity curve you desire, to perfectly match the slides of your real guitars.

Intelligent Alternate Picking

Our proprietary tempo-synced alternate picking algorithm has a robust round robin that never sounds like samples are repeating, no matter the speed of your music.

Packet fresh’ tone

ShinzBass was sampled with brand new steel strings, meaning that you always get that lovely ‘packet fresh’ tone, with no wear down. The average professional bass recording session often costs several times the price of ShinzBass in string packets alone.

Jack Gardiner

“For someone that can’t really play bass but wants realistic, modern sounding low end in their tracks without having to do much tweaking, this plugin is a game changer. The sheer variety of articulations within ShinzBass means I can live out my 80’s style wannabe fusion dreams all in the Midi Grid!”

“I originally treated writing bass parts as an afterthought and found it to be a chore - With ShinzBass, composing bass parts is now genuinely the most exciting instrument to write. Super intuitive and easy to use!”

“SubMission Audio are leading the charge with their virtual basses. I have used their bass libraries on everything from demos, all the way to official music releases. If you need consistent, world-class, completely accurate bass tones for your music, look no further.”

Soreption

“I have been using Submission Audio products since 2019 in my writing process and they have always delivered an absolutely devastating low end to my mixes. ShinzBass takes everything that is good about the previous plugins and tailors specifically to making technical death metal. It is exactly what I needed to finish writing tracks for the next Soreption album!”

“I was already in love with SubMission basses, but with ShinzBass they went next level! The tone, especially, is incredibly inspiring - Fits perfectly with my music.”

A great medium intensity bass

I have most of the Submission Audio basses now and in comparing them, I'd categorize this one as a medium intensity (Djinn and Umansky are high intensity) and clean (Euro and Grove are also Medium but have more "color" to them). Fits nicely into the range of basses they offer. I can see this one working well for fast and funky stuff.

The King of virtual bass guitars

I have been producing rock, pop, metal, and more for 35 years. I have been using virtiual (sampled) instruments for 20 years, starting with the original Drum Kit From Hell. I use them both in the writing process and/or as sound replacements for stem mixes where the tracks I’ve been given are not unto my standards. With this Warwick bass library I can truly replace any bass recording with these tones and drastically improve the final mix of any project. This is next level pro sounds for CHEAP!

Great sounding bass

Shockingly good

Can do anything I’d want my bassist to do, and fits greatly in the mix. Humanize it, and you have your own bassist at the tip of your fingers… or don’t humanize it and press the DOOM button at your own risk!
