MODO BASS - The first physically modeled electric bass


Introducing Modo Bass 2


22 models for a limitless variety of bass sounds

MODO BASS 2.0 includes the 14 original iconic basses plus 8 exciting new ones to cover any style of music. You’ll find 6 new eclectic models, including 2 legendary fretless basses plus 2 double-bass instruments. And with the power of MODO you can turn any standard bass into a fretless model for even more sonic options.


The first physically modeled electric bass goes next level

MODO BASS 2 is the expanded edition of IK’s industry-first physically modeled bass virtual instrument, adding 8 new basses, including new fretless and upright options, a new patterns section with tons of new grooves, advanced performance controls and more ways to enter the MODO BASS world.

As producers, we all know how important it is to have a great-sounding bassline. On-call 24/7, MODO BASS 2.0 offers the realism and sound of a sought-after instrument being played by a master musician, but with the convenience of a plug-in virtual instrument.

Real Time Sound Synthesis

MODO BASS is still the first and only technology of its kind that models the entire process of playing bass. Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO BASS uses modal synthesis technology to breathe life into your bass tracks.


Expand your grooves

The new PATTERNS section offers smart filters to browse by genre, song section, length, time signature and more. You can instantly audition any pattern to quickly find what you need, whether it’s the backbone of a full song or just a handy solo lick to lead into your next song section. All patterns were performed by pro bass players with a groove and feel in MODO BASS that are indistinguishable from the real thing.


Fingerboard Type — Fretless freedom

Want to give your bass track a lift? Try going fretless. MODO BASS 2 adds the ability to make any bass in your collection a fretless model. It’s an impressive feature you won’t find anywhere else, instantly adding a distinctive vibe to your bass sound without the intonation challenges players face on a fretless. Explore the tonal possibilities of this game-changing new control.


Play Style — Choose your approach

With the Play Style options, you can choose and modify the way you approach and play the instrument. 

Finger — is one of the most common ways to bring out inspiring bass tones

Slap — is the act of “slapping” and “pulling” the bass strings with the thumb and fingers

Pick — offers settings for pick thickness and picking style, downstroke or alternating

Mute — can be applied to any playing style, another premier in software instruments


Strings and Setup — No tech required

Different strings provide different sounds and tonal qualities. In MODO BASS, you can customize your string choice and choose the type of setup used on the bass.

Change the actual number of strings on all models (4, 5 or 6)

Use the “Drop” function to extend the range of any model

Select the gauge of the string set to vary timbre and sustain

Alter the age of the strings to impact the relative “brightness” of the tone

Choose the type of the strings (round wound, flat wound, etc.)

Change the bass’ scale length and the action to alter sustain and fret noise


The Studio — Double-bass standard

Because full upright basses are different, MODO BASS 2 has a dedicated space for finding your perfect double-bass sound.
