For you, Matt.

Note: I'm playing this with a keyboard, and it's just for an example, so the playing is NOT tight. The MIDI editor works as expected, and imo the tone is pretty damn good.

(My mix, however, is not, since it's just raw to the master bus, so it's loud as hell)

Here's my settings for this clip:



For $49, that's really not that bad at all. I've no idea how to mix bass, but I think this could sound pretty damn decent in a mix.

As soon as I can figure out how to render just the bass track, I'll post that up too. :lol:

There's a standalone. What are you looking to do? I thought you wanted to program basslines in MIDI? That's what this does. :scratch:

He's probably referring to using it as a virtual instrument inside his DAW. Pro Tools doesn't (AFAIK) support the VST format natively, so that won't work. I'm interested in it also, but without Audio Units support (for Logic Pro), it won't work for me either. :(

I want to use it as a VI in my DAW, and that bass sounds really good!

Correct, Pro Tools doesn't natively support VSTs.

forgive me being daw-dumb, but why can't you use a wrapper?
I can, but I'd have to buy one, and that's just another expense... though I guess with all the good, cheap (some free) VSTs it's not a terrible investment.

Aaah, alright. FWIW, I'm running it as an AU in Reaper. (I think that's the same as "using it as a VI in a DAW", right? :lol:)

I tried this out together with DFH to create a couple of backtracks from Guitar pro midi exports and I must say it sounds really good!

I've played around with this some more, still think it sounds awesome (especially for it's price). One problem I've run into though is that midi files exported from Guitar Pro contains notes too low for the plugin (somewhere in octave 1 I think, it's the range in the midi editor that starts with C1) which just don't make any sound when the VST is applied. Any ideas? (any that are not transpose the notes to the next octave are extra welcome :) )

what a con.

Surely there'll be some free homebrew wrappers out there?
There's basically no free, homebrew anything for Pro Tools.
