Slap bass is one of the most popular styles of bass playing. Over the years there have been many attempts to sample the sound and recreate it as a virtual instrument, but nothing has come close to the sound of recording a great bass player who has mastered this technique.
Waves Bass Slapper lets you recreate on your keyboard the realistic nuances of a dexterous bass player, with complete control over every note and articulation, including thumbing, popping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, open strings, legato sounds and dead notes.
Bass Slapper includes the world’s most extensive sample library of special bass guitar sounds, with slides, left- and right-hand mutes and harmonic strums. The instrument’s intuitive position and articulation controls let you determine precisely where to play on the fretboard, when to switch strings, which strings to thumb or pop, and more.
For endless tonal possibilities, Bass Slapper features studio-grade stompbox effects, detailed tone controls from vintage warmth to modern punch, and your choice of clean DI or authentic amp sounds.
