With 8 new bass models, Modo Bass 2 gives you a total of 22 basses to work with. This includes new fretless and upright patches and an all-new patterns section featuring thousands of different grooves and performance parameters to tweak. IK Multimedia is also offering a free introductory version. Apart from the artist-inspired patches modeled on Jaco Pastorius’s customized jazz bass or Pino Palladino’s StingRay, you can now switch any fretless bass to a fretted one – or vice versa.
What’s included in IK Multimedia Modo Bass 2
You can also access new upright bass patches. A Rockabilly styled double bass and an Upright Studio for a more traditional jazzy tone. Each has its own unique sonic environment with a choice of adjustable microphones. The piezo signal amount can also be adjusted and mixed in. From here you can further sculpt the tone with the Modo Bass pedal and amp simulations, as well as the stereo room mic control.
The new pattern browser allows you to navigate through the library using categories such as genre, song section, length, time signature, etc. The patterns themselves were performed by some of the industry’s top players. Combined with the controls in the new Playstyle area, you can adjust the techniques and articulations for detailed realistic control of each pattern.
Available on both Mac OS and Windows platforms in VST/AU/AAX formats. Currently available for preorder at a price of €299.99 meanwhile, Modo Bass 1 owners will have the option to upgrade for €150. The full version includes all 22 bass patches, while the SE version comes with 4 basses for €150. CS is the free edition and only features a 1960s P-Bass, but just like the SE edition, you can expand with additional bass instruments for €70 each.
