Jul 25 2023 . Doubters? This bass is tough !! Great for Prog Rock and Fusion. I use it anytime I need some growl and bite. And IT AIN'T out of tune... It has a tad bit of tremolo effect a la Chris Squire which I think is why so many perceive it as out of tune... Great Plug In !!! My favorite bass gtr by a landslide.

Some of the lower notes sound pretty good (picked is better than fingered) but the higher you go the note samples sound more and more pitch shifted and synth-like. The higher notes are also slightly out of tune.

Yeah! Very nice sound! Try it with Sortube Bass Amp Room and your custom humanization. Many vst basses are fingered, but this sound is realy what needs to punk

Neither my version of the Fingered or the Picked RIck from BigCat are out of tune. Have used both with many VSTs and it is in tune with them all.

I use this by placing the picked version on one track, the fingered version on another track, both using the same midi file. I also put the fingered track through a bass amp / bass cab simulation VST, and put the picked version through a guitar amp / guitar cab simulation VST, and adjust the volume of both tracks, to get a "best of both worlds" sound that is reasonably close to a classic rickenbacker sound of the 70's, like Mike Rutherford or Chris Squire (though it will never sound as amazing as Chris's sound, due to his playing style, etc). An amazing VST, both picked and fingered. Thanks for Project16 for sampling his guitar and to BigCat for making it available in VST format for those of us who do not use Kontact.

Fancy, but did you notice that those two vsti are out of tune? They are pretty much useless.

This bass is NOT out of tune. Neither the picked version nor the fingered version. I have used it with lots of other VSTs and it is in tune with all of them. You may be using it with other VSTs that ARE out of tune, but this bass VST is not.

Both this and the Pick version are consistently out of tune by 10cents or more. Plug in a tuner and see for yourself.

Very Squire-ish tonality. And regardless of what any tuner says, my ears don't perceive it as out of tune. And pitch deaf I AIN'T....

Growly, twangy bass. That's it. Works OK.

Probably the best bass sound I've ever had. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a good bass guitar AU plugin.
