UJAM has announced the release of Virtual Bassist 2, an update to the series of virtual instruments that offer ultra-realistic sounding and ‘in the pocket’ bass guitar.

With this update, UJAM has added features like MIDI Drag and Drop, 20 new styles, 30 new presets, a built-in Finisher with 15 multi-effect modes tailored to bass sounds, a new and fresh GUI, and full backwards compatibility to version 1.

The bass guitar can be described as one of the cornerstones of modern musical arrangements – supporting the all-important musical harmony and bridging the crucial gap between the rhythm of the drums and the chords and melodies of the guitars in a typical band setup.

You just know when you hear a great bass line – the track seems full and complete, the groove is elevated, and the emotion of the music can be fully realized. Get the bass wrong though and you’re in trouble, bass matters!

Three flavors are available for unlimited musical styles:

  • Royal is a fingered electric bass that delivers a broad range of professional studio bass sounds and styles.
  • Rowdy is a loud-mouthed, twangy rock bass, leaning towards saturation and distortion with a rather rough picked sound and playing style.
  • Mellow stands for an acoustic double bass that provides body, bottom end and texture in Jazz, urban and soul genres.

The instruments are available for 129 USD/EUR each, or all three in a bundle for 269 USD/EUR. Upgrade offers start from 29 USD/EUR.

A free trial version can be downloaded in VST, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac.
