This sounds great! Far more usable than slap passion. It even sounds good with guitar and drums as well.

The cab is definitely usable. A few more choices would be a nice addition.

Possible improvements: A graphic eq[in addition to the included tone controls] for additional tone possibilities. A higher gain stage would fit more types of passive basses. And maybe a compressor? Although, not essential.

Great work Ron!


Thanks for this plug, it sounds very cool, really…

How is possible to minimize the spacialization effect that it produces ? The difference of output level between the 2 channels is a little to much. Going full mono is not also a solution because the sound lose a lot of clarity.


This makes my hosts freeze. Any ideas why? I have a guess that it has something to do with the ASIO4ALL drivers that I use, but I haven’t tested yet.
