Iridium Iris Software has announced the release of Paragon Bass, a virtual bass instrument for Windows.

The Paragon Bass VST instrument works like the previous plugin Reality Bass but in this plugin we have put our whole heart; contains new better algorithms and better sound samples from a real custom made 5-stringed bass equipped with Bartolini pickups that has a really high sound quality.
