Change tunings Lower than B?

Postby Capt_Handbanana » Thu Feb 16, 2017 12:25 am

Just picked this up today but it seems the lowest I can go is B? is there a way to drop tune for metal?

The 5-string versions of the basses currently go down to B. There is a feature request logged for lower tunings than that. Thank you.

Hi,

Any news on getting updates for this? I've been wondering if I should buy the Modo bass, but my band tunes to G#-Drop, so Low B is a no go for me.

There will be an update to MODO BASS coming soon, and the details of any additional tunings and such will be available at that time. Thanks for your patience!

Still missing the half step to get down to G# :roll: Will the A be the lowest it'll go?

Just bought MODO BASS, and while I'm loving the amazing innovations, flexibility, and sound quality (thank you!), drop A is not enough for modern metal needs. I came across a Gearslutz post where someone mentioned Dingwalls typically being tuned down as far as C0, and they didn't understand why MODO BASS only goes to A0, especially for a physically modeled product that already has unbelievable customizability and options not typically found in the real world. I unfortunately have to agree. Is there any news on if/when we will see lower tunings?

Thank you.
