As a producer you’re always keen on the perfect tone and sound to make your production unique. We’ve sampled this special, octaved 8-String high-class bass guitar and put it into a plug-in. It’s a plug-in that gives you an unique and realistic sounding “copy” of the original bass. Instead of using the same virtual bass over and over again, why not try out something new?

Plugin window in your DAW

The instrument was handcrafted in Krefeld, Germany. It features active electronics and custom components like a special ETS bridge. The plug-in offers you different playing styles inclusive alternate picking and many more stuff.

    This is actually sounding really unique. Certainly not for every song, but I like the 8-String sound, reminds me of a 12-String guitar actually.
