When opening this plugin, you will be greeted by a clean and cheerful interface that consists of a 3.8 GB sample library. By browsing the presets before diving into the specific settings of this plugin, you get a general impression of what the plugin offers in terms of sound. The first impression when scrolling through presets is how thick it delivers. Most stock-bass plugins and even some third parties often tend to sound thin without any treatment, while this one immediately sounds thick and appealing.
The user interface is simple yet elegant and makes it look like you are playing a real electric bass guitar on your screen, but in our opinion it can be a bit difficult to understand at first if you are not an experienced producer. or bassist.
The 6 main functions included in this plugin are worth mentioning:
- CPC (custom settings control) allows you to control any button knob by MIDI CC or standard Automation.
- Integrated AMP system which includes three classic models: Vintage-15, Bass-500, Bass-Pro.
- Of is a random riff generator: one click will create a new inspiration because it is not just a random algorithm. Rather, it sums up the rules by analyzing a bunch of musical scores.
- 2-line compressor which has real-time visualization of input and output signal, two RMS & Peak detection modes, support soft knee, auto release and auto makeup.
- 6-Tap Echo which is a real-time visualization of the processing of a stereo signal. You can adjust the parameters of 6 echo points individually: feedback, pan, volume, etc.
- Infrared reverb which provides four types of IR: room, studio, room and larger room. 3D visualization of the IR spectrum.
Ample Bass P is currently priced at $ 95.
Considering the clear, thick and bright sound that you will get and not to mention all the features and presets included in this plugin, we would gladly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their bass playing in their productions.
