Add character and punch with the flick of a switch. Several amplifiers have been carefully modeled to compliment and add depth to the range of basses. Options at your fingertips include: Vintage, Round, Wooden, Subtle, Classic, Acoustic and Modern.
A sparate FX page is on hand offering a wide range of processing options. This includes a dedicated EQ panel offering various high, mid and low shaping options plus 4 independent FX slots. Each slot can be loaded with your choice of compressor, chorus, distortion, phaser, filter, delay or reverb module. A FX master knob is available on the performance page allowing you to dial in as much or as little as you wish.
Six Rare & Exquisitely Modified Bass Guitars
6 basses from Dan's personal collection were sampled by the man himself to bring you this instrument. Here you’ll find the clear, clean sounds of the Alembic Spoiler, the resonant and growly Alembic Fretless, the balanced, subtle Fender Precision, the deep, barky Fender Telecaster, the classic jazz bass tone of the Lull Jazz and the versatile, punchy Washburn Fretless bass guitar.
Over 100 Presets
If you're looking for quick access to a specific style, tone or effect the factory presets have you covered! Dan Dean Essential Bass ships with over 100 carefully crafted presets offering anything from a subtle chorus to a gnarly distortion.
To further enhance realism several performance articulations have been added. Harmonics can be triggered per-note with the mod wheel while other articulations can be triggered by key switches to maximize the playable range. This include a selection of slides over a variety of ranges.
