Let’s get Ready to Rumble

It can purr, but it’s built to roar. With a hand-selected, specially modified vintage bass guitar, hot amps, a fuzz box and even an octaver. It’s definitely a rocker and could also do with taking a shower but we’re too afraid to ask...

Computer with ROWDY user Interface

Frustration-Free Design

Designed with the UJAM frustration-free philosophy, ROWDY’s easy to use GUI and controls make it possible to achieve fantastic sounding and aggressive basslines in no time – no matter what your level of music production experience is.

ROWDY’s loud-mouthed, rebellic sound and angry playing style means that even seasoned bass players themselves will appreciate the ability to get great sounding ideas down fast – with practically zero learning curve.

Virtual Bassist ROWDY 2.1 User Interface
Player Mode

Virtual Bassist ROWDY has two distinct modes – Player Mode lets you quickly choose from one of the 60 styles and 1380 phrases with your MIDI controller, seamlessly following in an intelligently musical way whatever key or chord is being played.

Instrument Mode

The Instrument Mode is one for the keyboard wizards and opens up the entire ROWDY fretboard to be played like a traditional sampler, complete with dead notes, full stops and even slides.

Tone-Sculpting Controls

Perfect your performances and sound with Virtual Bassist ROWDY’s powerful yet simple tone-sculpting controls. Choose between a DI signal and 3 separate hand-picked amps with separate dial-in controls for overdrive and fuzzy rudeness. The character knob can then give you instant access to many useful scuzzy sonic flavors before adding the cherry on top with an octaver and a simple EQ and dynamics section.
