Cherry Audio is celebrating International Synth Day 2022 with the release of a virtual synthesizer instrument based on the most renowned dual-oscillator bass pedal synth ever made, the Moog Taurus.

The outrageously fun and funky Lowdown Bass Synthesizer plugin instrument recreates the room-rattling sounds heard on countless prog-rock and new wave tracks in the 70s and 80s.

To create Cherry Audio’s Lowdown, award-winning synth designer and DSP legend Mark Barton carefully analyzed the original’s synthesis circuits and precisely modeled them to provide a massive virtual bass experience like no other. But we didn’t stop at the sound!

Lowdown’s unique interface reproduces the experience with a lovingly rendered and animated foot pedal “keyboard” and the ability for users to select from 14 under-the-pedals floor surfaces. Over 40 outstanding presets and unlimited user preset storage are provided, and Lowdown supports full MIDI and DAW automation control.

Lowdown Bass Synthesizer features

  • Faithful virtual analog emulation of the renowned monophonic bass pedal synth.
  • Every aspect precisely modeled in exacting detail with an ultra-realistic interface.
  • Beyond bass: propel Lowdown from the fat deep end and up to soaring leads.
  • Massive dual oscillators (Saw, Square).
  • Throaty 24dB/octave lowpass filter with controls for Cutoff, Emphasis, and Contour.
  • Single-button access to Bull, Tuba, and Bass three factory presets.
  • Variable live-panel mode, available with a single click.
  • Additional one-button controls to activate Glide, Decay, and Octave.
  • Loudness and Filter master “foot” sliders.
  • Recessed panel provides access to programmable functions: Tune, Beat, Glide, Octave, Mix, and OSC B Frequency.
  • Rendered and animated foot pedal keyboard.
  • Select from 14 under-the-pedals floor surfaces.
  • Over 40 presets in an extensive preset browsing menu, and unlimited user preset storage.
