Spitfire Audio LABS has added a bass guitar to its arsenal. There are four classic basses and seven controls all wrapped up in this free plugin.
Spitfire Audio LABS: A series of free and easy-to-use software instruments just released a bass guitar into their collection.
This realistic instrument has four classic electric basses and just seven simple controls, for ease of use and to stay creative. Let’s look at the creation and its characteristics.
LABS by Spitfire Audio is a long established series, with over 25 free instruments. After creating an account with them and installing their audio app, the complete LABS instrument libraries will be available for download. There lives the brand new bass guitar instrument with a map of Lancashire featured in its illustration. A nod to the Beatles?
Once downloaded, there are four presets to choose from, Warm Bass Amped, Warm Bass DI, Classic Bass Amped, and Classic Bass DI. As with all Spitfire LABS instruments, the controls have two faders and a large macro button in the middle for effects and controls.
Inside the LABS host, the left fader controls amplitude, the middle fader (usually connected to your modulation wheel on your MIDI controller) is for dynamics, and the large macro button has five options: reverb , tightening, variation, attack and release.
Recorded and re-amplified by Leo Wyatt of Spitfire Audio with a vintage Ampeg at Hackney’s Premises studios, these big, warm, punchy tones won’t disappoint.
The LABS collection runs on VST2, VST3, AAX, and AU and can run on all macOS – Intel and M1 – and Windows in 64-bit DAWs.
