Main Interest Of Modo Bass 2: Double Basses and Pattern Section
You can’t call yourself a music producer if your bass sucks.
Double Bass (Upright Bass)
Double bass, Upright Bass, String Bass, this instrument has many names. It’s a large bowed instrument used in Jazz, Orchestral, and 90s Hip-Hop Music. There are occasions when you’ll hear the upright bass in modern Hip-Hop and Pop and it’s beautiful when used correctly.
- Double Bass: Generally accompanied cellos an octave below
- String Bass: The bass is a part of the string section of an orchestra.
- Upright Bass: Because the bass sits upright
- Contra Bass: Can play a lower pitch than a bass within the contra family (contrabass flute/clarinet, etc)
The Double Bass is also known as a Bass Viol which looks similar to the cello in size, but smaller. A lot of modern double basses are a hybrid of the Viol and Violin family. Modo Bass 2 Double Basses, one for Jazz and one for rockabilly.
IK Multimedia offers a variety of mic options to help music producers and musicians dial in the right space and sound.
- Room mics
- Stereo mics
There are a lot of options with these combinations.
New Pattern Section
The pattern section offers thousands of patterns played by professional bass players. The patterns are categorized using smart filters that allow you to browse by; song section, genre, time signature, etc.
This makes for good backing tracks and inspiration. I’m curious to know if you can create your own patterns in the Pattern Section. It would certainly make the feature more flexible for music creators.
New MODO Bass 2 Release Date
The original release date was planned for April 2022, but there were some development kinks that needed to be worked out which also pushes the release date back to May 2022.
Some people are bitter about the extended wait, I’d rather have a solid product. With that being said, if it takes an additional 2 months, make it so.
