Finally, a module that can produce truly grooving and natural-sounding electric bass lines. Pleanty of options to choose from, too.

<P>The Units is very simple, and is basically a play-back bass module with 256 fixed patches. </p><P> The bass patches include, various types of <ul> <LI>Raw Digital Synth Basses, <LI>some Pulse Basses with sweeping filters and others with panning effects <LI>Sine, <LI>Saw, <LI>at least 12 FM basses (one of the patches is the exact bass from Micheal Jacksons - Smooth Criminal), <LI>P-Bass : - about 6 - 8 variations, <LI>Acoustic bass about 4 0r 5 variations, <LI>Jazz bass <li>Fretless : - about 3 or 4 variations <li>Picked Bass : - about 2 variations of this <li>and the last few being pad type Basses like Jupiter sounding </ul> </p><p> The unit, is an interesting buy. If you don't have the PC1600 controller, it is not vary versatile. I find many of the pacthes, particularly the Synth and FM basses very 80's sounding for my taste. ... and only 1 of the P-Bass patches sounded remotely like a real Fender. </p><P> The bass patches are not as thick and heavy as say a Roland JD990 "Rubber Bass", and some of the velocity switching is just pain bad. I felt that if the filters were denser, the overall sound would have been better. </p><p> The Output Levels are not very hot, and require you to boast the signal a bit, which then reveals the DA Converter Hiss. </p><p> If the unit is purchased for 100US or so. I would say you got your money's worth. </p>

Great bass for the money! Im a bass player and Im having some fun with this box. I use the Art Phat Boy to process the sounds. Lots of choices. This is one of the cheapest ways to get more BASS in your arsenal!!!
