Virtual Bassist by UJAM comes to Reason
“Virtual Bassist has been a great success since its launch in December, and for UJAM their Rack Extension launch marks a double milestone. With Virtual Bassist Rack Extensions, we complete the A-List series of drums and guitars we built together wiht Propellerhead by adding great-sounding bass players – the virtual backing band is finally together.” – UJAM Instruments Founder Peter Gorges.
Similar to the Virtual Guitarist series, each Virtual Bassist is an emulation of a particular instrument, player and gear like amp or effects. The Virtual Bassists can be played like any MIDI instrument, with AI articulation modeling augmenting notes by realistic bass articulations.
The first three titles in the Virtual Bassist series cover all the essentials for different musical styles:
Royal delivers a broad range of professional studio bass sounds and styles, based on a fingered electric bass and amps selected and configured to fit the bass into any acoustic or electric mix.
Rowdy is a loud-mouthed, twangy rock bass, leaning towards saturation and distortion with a rather rough sound and playing style.
Mellow stands for an acoustic double bass that provides bottom end and texture in organic coffee shop jazz just as well as a powerful voice in urban and soul genres.
Peter Gorges adds:
“All three bassists are deep-sampled and come with true-to-style built-in amps and effects. Most importantly for many, they share UJAM’s signature ease-of-use at uncompromised realism that the Virtual Guitarist series has introduced, and play extremely well with UJAM’s other series such as Virtual Guitarist, Virtual Drummer or Beatmaker.”
