  • Bass Dude is the dude

    ★★★★★

    I love this plug-in. To me, Bass Dude feels like I'm plugging into an amp. I use a control surface in the first place so tweaking knobs probably adds to that experience but this plug-in does feel quite natural and it simply sounds fantastic. As an HD user, I also appreciate that it comes in AAX DSP. At it's normal price, it's a bargain. I happened to pick it up on sale and used a coupon to get it for a ridiculously low price. I have a bunch of amp sims that do all kinds of things but this one is the one I now go to when i feel like all I want to do is plug into an amp. The fringe benefit of it being virtual is just the icing on the cake. I love it and would highly recommend it.

    I love this amp plugin and is used in most of my productions on either guitar or bass. Sounds great on both! Classic Fender sound with that chime on the clean tones that Fender is famous for :)

    Bassdude is quickly becoming my number one choice for smooth, creamy, clean tones. As with all the PA guitar sims, the addition of a host of signal chain impulse responses adds a tremendous amount of flexibility to the sound.

    I was looking for a great way to amplify my DI Bass,and for 9 dollars it was a no brainer/ stop thinking about expensive bass amps and I’m using it till this day. Great bass/guitar amp;it’s a history how this amp worked miracles on guitars,and in that spirit I find guitar settings to work great on bass too !

    Sooo, I've been a Waves/Pro Tools guy since almost day one of plugins. This plug has really impressed me. I have lots of amp sim plugs, but NONE do the one simple thing that this does ... truly sound like a great amp with no hassle and no scrolling through presets and tweaking. I have a large collection of vintage amps, including several vintage Bassman heads; this plug really nails the tone of the real thing. Does it sound just like being in the room next to an amp and cabinet ... of course not! However, it DOES sound exactly like being in the control room with the amp miced up in the studio.
    In the world of "real" amps, I prefer sweet, fat, juicy non-maser volume amps with pedals in front and studio effects as needed at mix-down. That's EXACTLY the way this works. Ya all know that keeping a complex studio rig running is hard enough as it is ... it's a real breath of fresh air to have this "amp" that just flat sounds so good without investing any time "tweaking". I'll press that big red "easy" button any time I can!
    One request: Make your plugins run on the Waves Soundgrid Servers ... pretty please :-)

    This is the best amp simulator I've used for bass guitar period. It has an even response across the fretboard, no sudden frequency dips or boosts with certain notes. And it sounds excellent. It's also beautiful for electric guitar, sweet sparkly cleans or mellow jazz tones. Inspiring to play through!

    This have a lot more than on offer than you might expect. It sounds great. Its quick and intuitive yet still offers a lot of tonal options with the fairly large IR cabinet selections.
