Unparalleled realism

Bring that professional session feel to your tracks with a selection of authentic articulations including open, muted, bowed, and flageolet techniques, as well as special articulations for slides and percussive playing styles. The engine includes realistic transitions and repetitions, with the option to dial in fret noise and vibrato for performances that are polished, expressive, and detailed.

Play it two ways

Upright Bass offers two ways to compose bass parts: a pattern-based instrument for creating instant grooves and a melody instrument for crafting more intricate melodies note-by-note. Seamlessly integrated, these instruments make it simple to craft basslines for any genre, whatever your needs and workflow.

Patterns to inspire

Effortlessly browse more than 220 riffs and picking patterns, adapting the pitches further in your sequencer with MIDI drag and drop. Use swing and humanize controls to fit the groove of your productions, and shift accents between downbeats and offbeats for true feel.

Tailor your tone

Find the perfect sound fast with a choice of 39 sound presets, or get hands on with a range of tone controls. Explore condenser, dynamic, and mixed stereo mic setups, with the choice to send your sound through a range of amplifiers and cabinets from Guitar Rig 7 Pro. Harness the natural tone of the instrument or get creative with stompboxes and high-grade studio effects, including vintage compressors, studio EQ, reverb, distortion, modulation, and delay emulations.

Play it with Kontrol keyboards
