This is the ultimate bass preset pack for every modern rock and metal player. More than 19 tones - varying from warm and round, yet still punchy to all in distortion fest. Everything is encapsulated in 8 presets with alterations easily accesible through footswitches. These presets have been created with a high degree of flexibility in mind, allowing you to achieve varying tones without much effort. Use the Quick Access Parameter feature to adjust your sound with no need to dwelve into the details!
Want to take a different route? Check and experiment with included Modern Bass Impulse Response Pack! 39 IR cabinets are there to satisfy all your needs.
DoubleHammer - Heavily distorted tone, with separated bass and treble processing patches. Enable or disable additional boost for even more top-end grind.
Trinity - Aggressive and cutting tone that can be pushed even further with FET Boost. Separated top and low end processing ensures great clarity of tone.
NastyM - A (slightly) more classic distorted tone. As the name suggest - it's nasty! Two completely different "Green" and "Red" tones to choose from - with just one footswitch press.
OnTheRocks - Classic Ampeg-like tone, that bites hard if you want it to. Enable the pitch-shifter to add additional octave. Set the position with Quick Access Parameter to 0 or 100 to switch from octave up and down.
Micro7K - Modern tone that already became a classic. Disable the overdrive to get a slightly pushed clean tone. Try pressing the CTRL footswitch to explore other galaxies :)
Overkill - Overdrive pushing an Orange AD200B pre-amp, which drives an Aguilar Tone Hammer pre-amp, which feeds a 6550 valve power amp... That shouldn't work... Yet it works! Disable the initial overdrive for another variation.
SteelHammer - Bass and top-end should be processed in parallel for best results. What helps to filter out some of the bottom-end and create some grinding treble attack? Fortin Grind! Wait... That's a guitar pedal. Disable it if you would like to get cleaner tone and experiment with additional EQ which can open the tone even more.
ForbiddenOne - This shouldn't have happened, yet - here it is. Completely distorted tone that can tear down walls. It's all thanks to a classic Marshall pedal. You can shape the tone with different switchable EQ pedals... But you can not disable the distortion.
