HoRNet Plugins has announced the release of a new channel strip effect plugin designed with bass players in mind.

A collaboration with Italian bass player Antonio Lusi, the HoRNet L3012 aims to give you all the tools you need for bass processing both in studio and live in a single package.

HoRNet L3012 packs under its interface an analog tube preamp section that can be overdriven to add grit to your sound, followed by a gentle “bass boost” circuit and a transient shaper, which makes the attack and picks of your bass sound great. You then get high pass and low pass filters, a low shelf, high shelf and a fully parametric mid band to fix resonances and shape your sound, the last stage is a complete compressor modelled after a famous VCA compressor often used on bass.

HoRNet L3012 is a very light and versatile plugin that provides you the highest quality sound with analog modelling technology in every part of the processing chain, for this reason internally it uses what we call “intelligent oversampling” allowing the plugin to choose the amount of oversampling (up to 4x) depending on the sampling rate of your DAW settings.

  • Input pad and phase reversal.
  • Tube preamp overdrive with dry / wet control.

Priced 29.99 EUR, the plugin is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats.
