The original Virtual Bassist, successor of the Virtual Guitarist series, was a bestselling virtual instrument developed by Wizoo and distributed by Steinberg. It was discontinued in 2007. Since then, people have been asking for a Virtual Bassist 2. In 2013, the core team behind the original Virtual Guitarist and Virtual Bassist gathered again and launched Virtual Guitarist IRON – specialized on Power Chords – in December 2015, and consequently AMBER, SPARKLE, and SILK – a whole new generation of Virtual Guitarists. With an all-new concept and technology Virtual Guitarists offered vastly expanded realism, musical and sonic capabilities with the same ease and speed of use the legacy instruments were so famous for. No wonder our Virtual Guitarist users have been asking for a matching Virtual Bassist ever since, and even more so since we launched the Virtual Drummer series in 2017. The Virtual Bassist series – ROYAL, ROWDY, MELLOW and DANDY.
complements the drummers and guitarists and – if you own a bundle – will allow you to build a complete rhythm section. Like the Guitarists, the Bassists are a whole new development with newer technology. They are designed to offer lots of improvements over the original while even easier to use and sounding even better. We’d be delighted to see you experience and enjoy these qualities in your music!
You and us
Virtual Bassist ROYAL was built by musicians for musicians. We at UJAM are a pretty diverse bunch – from DJ to guitarist to weekend producer to Oscarawarded Hollywood composer. We build every product for ourselves, and, like you, we’re all users of Virtual Bassist too. That means that before we even start developing, a lot of thought and discussion goes into finding out what you, the user, will expect from the product, what problem it solves, which controls we can remove to make the product more inviting and simpler, which hurdles we can move out of the way between you and a perfect track. Every Virtual Bassist is optimized for one clear, powerful purpose: To produce great-sounding bass tracks without distracting you from the complex endeavor that producing a song is. We hope that Virtual Bassist transpires that philosophy in everything you do with it.
