Who doesn't love a bit of slap bass? Go on... admit it, we all love a bit of slap, however, getting good slap bass in production requires very skilled bass players. Our friends at Waves clearly love a bit of the slap bass and have just released a new virtual instrument specific to slap bass guitar - Bass Slapper.
What Is Waves Bass Slapper?
Waves say Bass Slapper is:
The most elaborate and realistic-sounding slap bass plugin ever created, allowing you to create all the nuances and articulation of a seasoned bass player.
The Waves Bass Slapper VI claims to enable users to recreate all the realistic nuances of slap bass performances with control over every note and articulation, including:
- Open strings
- Legato sounds
- Dead notes
Bass Slapper appears to have been well throughout as it includes special bass guitar sounds, with slides, left- and right-hand mutes and harmonic strums. The instrument’s intuitive position and articulation controls let users determine precisely where to play on the fretboard, when to switch strings, which strings to thumb or pop, and more.
Pedals & Amps
What would a bass guitar VI be without any built-in effects and amps? Luckily, Bass Slapper features "studio grade" stompbox effects with tone controls covering vintage warmth to the modern punch tones with choices of clean DI and authentic amp sounds.
Waves are currently offering Bass Slapper at a special time-limited introductory offer of $29 (regular $69). Visit the Waves website to demo Bass Slapper or purchase at this special intro price.
