Building upon the success of their first virtual 8-string bass, this new plugin boasts enhanced sampling, more velocity layers, better overall quality, and a refined GUI. The new “plus” version of the original custom bass represents a significant upgrade, featuring a stereo output to capture both pickup signals separately.
If you have never heard about 8-string basses with octave strings, you may wonder what this is all about. Just like 12-string guitars, it features pair of strings.
An 8-string bass produces a distinctive and dynamic sound profile. With its extended range, it offers deep, resonant lows akin to a traditional bass, while also delivering higher octaves with clarity and precision. This unique combination results in a full-bodied, harmonically rich tone that adds depth and complexity to any musical composition.
Without a doubt, such a foundational bass sound will make your audio production stand out from others.
