"An Excellent all-round Bass Plug-In"

This is a Swiss Army Knife for all your bass needs. The samples are excellent and allow a lot of flexibility for almost any style of music.

I have been very pleased with the quality of the samples in this product. Most have multiple samples that allow for a lot of flexibility. I spend most of my time in the electric basses and use them for jazz/prog rock. The acoustic patches are very nice and the Chapman is very unique. You can do some really nice things with it beyond just bottom end. I have not used many of the synth bass patches, but the few I have played with are interesting and sound nice. The sounds are equivalent or better than all the other products I have or have tried. The amount of articulation and control you have over the samples can really humanize your tracks

The realism of the samples is the biggest feature/selling point to me. By in large, any acoustic or electric bass sound you are looking for is in here. There are several processing options to tailor your sound to your liking. There was a lot of thought put into this product. There are so many little touches you can add to 'randomize' your tracks making them sound less like a machine and more like a bass player.

Ease of Use
Keyboards are not my primary instrument, but It's fairly straightforward to use. If you aren't a keyboardists or familiar with samplers, I would recommend hitting the web read more for some tutorials to make sense of some of the features that can really bring the sounds to life. Some of the key control takes a bit of getting used to if you are not a keyboardist, but the value of MIDI is you can add those controls in your piano roll later.

The product has been available for quite a while, but it still holds up well against it's competition in my opinion. The software is solid, installation was straightforward and easy, and I have had no issues running as a VST in Cakewalk Sonar Professional.

I see some people having issue with the price, but the reality is for what you are getting it's still a good value even if it is a few years old. It's closest apples to apples competitor, iK MODO Bass is $299, and only offers electric bass samples.

Manufacturer Support
I have not had to deal with the company yet, but there is a support page on their website with a FAQ and some basic documentation. I would prefer they had a sponsored user forum, but the product is widely used and there are plenty of forum resources elsewhere.

The Wow Factor
I've been using other products for quite a while, and for me, nothing has the variety and sound quality I want in the same package. My personal Wow factor is the 5 string. It sits well in the mix and sounds amazing. It's by far my favorite.
