MODO BASS 1.5 update has arrived! Two new basses, Drop A tuning, six string option, and more! Free update for existing users.

What's new in version 1.5

  • 2 new bass models: Metal (based on a 5-string fanned-fret model); Imperial (based on a 6-string custom model)
  • 6 string feature: all models can now be turned into 6 string basses
  • Drop A feature: drops the low B String to an A note
  • A redesigned, more flexible control section

This is AWESOME! The new model looks to be a Dingwall, which is something I've LOOOOOOOOONG wanted.

Very excited to see the update! Thank you.
A couple things I would love to see in a future update:

When using the low string action, there are one or two adjacent notes in every model, higher up the neck that are "miss-fretted" ...very realistic but it renders those one or two notes as practically unusable.
Fretted slides could still use some attention. Perhaps a key switch that would allow you to actually play a gliss on the keyboard. Then you could more easily control the speed, dynamics and target note of the slide.
A "repeat last note" key switch would be great for fast repeated articulations.

Again, thank you for the new update! MODO Bass is an amazing bit of modeling magic.

Has anybody got this to work yet? I've loaded into my DAW, and it doesn't seem to load properly. I have a buddy trying to run it on mac and it just keeps crashing.

Two. One for up stroke, the other for down stroke.

Any way for MIDI to CC toggle between fingered and slapped articulations?

LOVING these two new basses! Thanks, IK. BTW, don't assume the "Metal" bass is only for metal music — the Dingwall bass that its based on was not designed for metal stuff, it's just a bass preferred by some metal bands because the tonal settings are so darned flexible.
