The first physically modeled electric bass goes next level
MODO BASS 2 supercharges IK’s industry-first physically modeled bass virtual instrument, adding 8 new basses, including new fretless and upright options, a new patterns section with tons of new grooves, advanced performance controls and more ways to enter the MODO BASS world.

As producers, we all know how important it is to have a great-sounding bassline. On-call 24/7, MODO BASS 2 offers the realism and sound of a sought-after instrument being played by a master musician, but with the convenience of a plug-in virtual instrument.

Real Time Sound Synthesis
MODO BASS is still the first and only technology of its kind that models the entire process of playing bass. Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO BASS uses modal synthesis technology to breathe life into your bass tracks.

MODO BASS recreates each string’s response to the action of the “player"" on the string, and the interaction of the string with the fretboard, body and pickups of the bass instrument. Then using IK’s analog modeling expertise, the amp and effects of an electric bass rig is added to the sound chain.

All of this gives MODO BASS the ability to create sound in real time providing you the ever-changing, hyper-realistic bass sound you just can't get from samples.

Fretless freedom
Want to give your bass track a lift? Try going fretless. Included in the 6 new electric basses are 2 fretless models. There’s Fretless Jazz, inspired by the iconic Jaco Pastorius’s customized Fender Jazz Bass with its instantly recognizable tone and dynamics. And Fretless Bass Man, inspired by Pino Palladino’s famous Music Man StingRay, delivers that iconic sound to your studio. Plus MODO BASS 2 adds the ability to make any bass in your collection a fretless model.

Double basses are here
MODO BASS 2 brings 2 double basses to the collection. Choose Rockabilly for old-school slapping styles or Upright Studio for that classic jazz sound. In their own studio, the double basses get a selection of movable mics to capture their sound with a piezo signal you can blend in for added focus and then run through MODO’s stomps and amps. And finally, a pair of stereo room mics lets you mix in the perfect ambient room sound.

Expand your grooves
The new PATTERNS section offers smart filters to browse by genre, song section, length, time signature and more. You can instantly audition any pattern to quickly find what you need, whether it’s the backbone of a full song or just a handy solo lick to lead into your next song section. All patterns were performed by pro bass players with a groove and feel in MODO BASS that are indistinguishable from the real thing.

Enhanced performance
The PLAYSTYLE section in MODO BASS 2 benefits from IK’s latest advances in playing style subtleties and control. With MODO’s ultra-realistic pluck technique comes advanced algorithms for pick and slap articulations that’ll breathe life into standard MIDI files and take your music to new heights.

Play Style — Choose your approach. With the Play Style options, you can choose and modify the way you approach and play the instrument. You can also adjust “where” you play on the strings. See more details HERE.
Finger — is one of the most common ways to bring out inspiring bass tones
Slap — is the act of “slapping” and “pulling” the bass strings with the thumb and fingers
Pick — offers settings for pick thickness and picking style, downstroke or alternating
Mute — can be applied to any playing style, another premier in software instruments
Strings and Setup — No tech required. Different strings provide different sounds and tonal qualities. In MODO BASS, you can customize your string choice and choose the type of setup used on the bass.
Electronics — A tone-tweaker’s dream
This section lets you experiment in real time with different bass pickup types and adjust the position and frequency response of each.
Control — The Bass Players’ Script
MODO BASS also gives you MIDI control of critical parameters that you can automate in real time. Varying parameters while performing is one of the secrets for achieving utmost realism, and MODO BASS is the only virtual instrument that is truly able to make it possible.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
