I don't have a bass guitar but I want to start practicing mixing. Do you guys have any Bass guitar VSTI's you'd recommend? I've looked around and found a few but I haven't been able to hear any good demo's of them to see if I would like them or not.

Thanks everyone. Cheers.


(Btw, not meaning an amp sim, a literal bass guitar VSTI for programming each note.)

4front got a bass vsti... but maybe you want to consider to just play the guitar as a bass and the pitch the guitar down an octave?

If he wants to practice mixing, this won't work too well because the timbre of a bass is different to a guitar.
The 4front thing: http://www.yohng.com/software/bass.html - it isn't that amazing but it sounds like a bass guitar (ish).
Or you can buy guitar rig by native instruments if you have money (if you do, you could just buy a bass guitar haha so I'm guessing you meant free)

I'll probably be buying a bass guitar after I actually do some research on one but yeah for right now I'm just looking for a free-mid price VSTI.


Thanks everyone for the replies, I'll go check em out.

Simply pitch shifting guitar parts can get some decent results, better than synth bass at least.

Trilian is really the only good one on the market. Expensive, but it sounds excellent, really the only one I've used worth spending money on.

If you want a free one, though, the ones included with Kontakt Player in the free Factory Selection are decent enough to get you started.

Trilian is pretty good, very wide variety.
Prominy SR5 is fast becoming my favorite go-to rock bass VSTi.
