BassLine handcrafted basses


With this bundle you get two world-class handcrafted bass guitars, “virtualized” as MIDI instrument in one plug-in.

The first instrument is a modern 4-string bass and the second instrument is a very unique-looking and unique-sounding 8-string bass – both ready for your DAW 🤩


Handcrafted custom instruments – that’s what you can expect from BassLine, Germany. The company from Krefeld builds nothing but world-class bass guitars from finest woods and premium components. We “virtualized” two of their instruments and turned it into a VST3 and AU plug-in, so you can use it in your production.

BassLine Buster CW 4 – the modern regular 4-String

This 4-String bass features a beautiful black limba top wood and a swamp ash body. The neck and fretboard is actually made of maple, turned into black stain. And he sounds just as good as it looks. 😍

BassLine Buster Std 8 – the unique sounding 8-String (like a 12-String guitar)

You maybe know 12-String guitars and the special sound of it. But how about an octaved bass? 🤔 Well, here you have it! 🧐 Hint: This sound is perfect for epic productions that require just some uniqueness.

    I was searching for my bass guitar plugin for long time. Now I think the search is over, I found the right one. 👍
    I’m not a guitarist so I can’t compare it to the real thing. But I love its sound and I think it can inspire me.

  2. Akin Fatunmbi says:

    A well designed plugin, delivering characterful bass tones. The developer was very helpful with regards to my set up query. Surprisingly versatile, I recomend both basses.

    hey there,

    i just wanted to shoot you guys a quick message & let you know that i’ve been using yr ‘handcrafted bass’ plugin for 3/4 months now (i think, i may be off on the time). i’m a rampant plugin-jumper, always trying to find what works for me, and things like bass and guitar are always something i have a huge sticking point with regarding quality/usability.

    while it may not be heavily feature-laden (something i tend to prefer in most circumstances), this has honestly been one of the best i have ever used, and i’ve used a lot of them. whenever i need a real bass sound, it is my default go-to (and this is coming from a bassist who just doesn’t have access to instruments right now)

    if yr into this sort of thing (not all plugin devs are, and please don’t feel obligated to listen), here are a few tracks i’ve made (i did JAMUARY 2021 – a song per day last month) using it.

    thank you for yr amazing work, and i look forward to future projects
