The Bass Man 5 was introduced in 1987 and from there it became an industry standard of modern bass instruments. Its extended range and punchy sound make it perfect for the most demanding tasks. Its active circuitry with the onboard 2-band EQ makes it very versatile and successful in every genre from disco to heavy metal.

Still the first and only technology that models the entire process of playing bass, MODO BASS recreates each string’s response to the action of the “player” and the interaction of the string with the fretboard, body and pickups of the bass instrument. Then using IK’s analog modeling expertise, the amp and effects of an electric bass rig are added to the sound chain.
All of this gives MODO BASS the ability to create sound in real time providing you the ever-changing, hyper-realistic bass sound your music needs to reach the next level. And since each individual bass doesn’t use samples, there’s more hard-drive space dedicated to recording your masterpieces.
