Alfred July 2, Bilak August 18, Bell May 30, BOIC May 10, Brown February 13, The authentic amp and cabinet modeling give you everything you need to create a unique signature sound quickly and easily.
The high-quality building blocks will help you produce a huge range of sounds to suit whatever genre you are working in. Bass Amp Room was designed to handle all your bass amp needs, from the dirtiest rock tones to an ultra-clean jazz sound. This is before dialing the amps EQ or playing around with the selection of microphones, microphone placement, and cabinet speaker selection. This programme gives the heavy tweakers and tube amp purists a field day when it comes to shaping your perfect bass tone.
This amp simulator focuses heavily on the level of customization that goes into the core amps design and elements which is good for tube amp purists. Allowing users to audition and download some of the best presets rated and uploaded to the cloud adding users to share their best tones.
A noise gate is included and a selection of reverbs types to choose from with customizable parameters to dial in an ambient reverb to go with your perfect bass amp. When it comes to sound and authenticity of a real tube amp, Bias Amp 2 has redesigned the previous engine used in the original Bias Amp. Improving the responsiveness and realism when it comes to the dynamics, frequencies, and nuances of the sound of their line of tube amplifiers and cabs.
This new engine software, the tones are authentic and sound great when DI through any recording software adding a level of realism to any dry bass signal. The only let down about this sim is there are no usual stompbox effects such as distortion, overdrive, flanger, phaser, or special effects etc like in other sims. Saying that however, with the level of customization from this sim there is a lot of features and some great professional tube amp tones available from Bias Amp 2.
Helix Native by Line 6 is one of the most expensive amp sims on this list but offers a huge array of presets. The interface follows a simple design of dragging, dropping presets into the signal chain with each aspect of the rig can be shaped with the designated sliders to change the dynamics of the sound. This sim caters in the effect department with everything you could want for shaping your ideal tone and experimenting with sounds. This amp sim may not be the most visually appealing.
But with lots of things going on inside a DAW, users can be thankful for the simple function of creating authentic bass tones without a cluttered interface. Excessive menus and other bells and whistles can distract from the usabailityin my opinion.
The elephant in the room with this amp sim is the price! It is one of the most expensive options n this list and seems a lot of money for an amp sim just for using for bass. On the plus side, you will have professional bass and guitar recording producers covered with a large number of amps, effects, and features. This option would be a suitable option if you are a bass player that plays guitar on the side. Or if you happen to record other guitarists as a producer in a home studio situation.
The designers aren't allowed to name the amp on which they've based their model, but they do tell us that it was originally designed as a guitar amp in the s, and is characterised by thick and solid preamp distortion, when overdriven, that means you can crank it up without losing the low end.
Bass Grinder Free is the ultimate metal bass machine. No need to tweak, just plug Bass Grinder into your bass guitar track and enjoy instant mix ready tones that cut through your mix effortlessly and give you that powerful aggressive low end you were always looking for. Summary The approach of concentrating on a few classic amps rather than offering hundreds of bells and whistles is a valid one, and Softube have done a thorough job.
