Bass Slapper

The most nuanced and realistic slap bass plugin ever created
Image for Bass Slapper

Optimized for the Authentic Sound and Feel of Slap Bass


Slapping bass with your thumb makes such a cool sound, but it’s impossible to sample… right? Not anymore. 3,700 multisamples, with round-robin note assignments and articulations, nail the 70s bass sound that players like Larry Graham and Bootsy Collins used to power funk, disco, and pop.

Select a warm, old-school sound, or bright modern—even choose the neck position where notes play, because the same note sounds different at different positions. It’s all about slap bass realism.

  • Sampled with natural sustain—no looped samples
  • Control dynamics by selecting the number of velocity layers
  • 11 interactive playing positions with automatic string switching
  • Full 5-string articulation: thumbing, popping, mutes & more
  • Choose 5 different legato modes, including “always” and “off”
  • 4 amp sim + cabinet options, so your tone can purr or growl
  • Pre-amp FX: compressor, phaser, overdrive, triggered wah, chorus
  • Post-amp FX: delay (with sync-to-tempo) and reverb
  • Adjust MIDI parameters, such as velocity curve and depth
  • Alter sustain, transpose, note release sound artifacts, and more
  • Use as a plugin in your DAW or play as a standalone instrument
  • NKS-ready for NI Maschine and Komplete Kontrol
