BassLine Buster Std 8 VST3 plug-in
The original bass guitar was handcrafted in Germany by the instrument manufacturer “BassLine”, the specialists of professional bass guitars. World-class electronics and premium custom components like the special ETS bridge and the unique headstock make this instrument truly an eyecatcher.
Not only the optic is unique, also the sound. 8-string basses like this are a perfect fit for ballads, melodic rock songs and epic tracks, outperforming normal basses with a massive tone. While not everybody is keen on this special sound, we all must agree it’s truly special.
Producers and song-writers now have the opportunity to get this special sound as virtual bass using any VST3 compatible DAW, like for example Cubase from Steinberg. The plug-in comes with a very simple GUI and is good for beginners and advanced users, who are interested in more features like different playing styles, alternative picking, slides, hammer on/pull of etc.
Also, the plug-in comes with two pre-amped sounds and the clean instrument output, so you can re-amp the signal with your own equipment or special amp simulation plug-ins.
All samples are in high resolution with lossless compression to save space on your hard drive. Honestly, the plug-in does not yet have as many samples and features as the big players in the market, but it’s great sounding and the very only plug-in with the unique 8-string sound. For a fair price you can add this instrument to your collection and benefit from one sound-option more. Especially when you’re working on epic tracks you should consider to get the plug-in.
