With the beginning of the 2018 AES show in New York City, UJAM Instruments, a.o. makers of Virtual Guitarist, are announcing their new Virtual Bassist product line of instrument plug-ins (VST, AU, AAX). The three titles Royal, Rowdy and Mellow are now available for pre-order.

“We are thrilled about finally completing the virtual backing band with Virtual Bassist. It was the instrument most requested by our customers.” says UJAM Instruments founder Peter Gorges.

All three products are available for pre-order starting October 17th, 2018. The special pre-order price will be 99€/$ (129€/$ MSRP). The bundle sells for 199€/$ (387€/$ MSRP) only on our website. Virtual Bassist will be officially released on December 17th, 2018.

Pre-order customers receive a special discount, together with exclusive making-of insights. Above all, they have access to the product on December 6th, two weeks ahead of public launch.

The Virtual Bassists behave similar to the Virtual Guitarist series. Each Virtual Bassist is an emulation of a particular instrument, player and gear like amp or effects. The Virtual Bassists can be played like any MIDI instrument. Thanks to AI articulation modeling augmenting notes by realistic bass articulations.


Three Different Bassists for Your Style of Choice

The first three titles cover all the essentials for different musical styles:


  • ROYAL is based on a fingered electric bass and amps. It delivers a broad range of professional studio bass sounds and styles. Selected and configured to fit the bass into any acoustic or electric mix.
  • ROWDY is a loud-mouthed, twangy rock bass. Leaning towards saturation and distortion with a rather rough sound and playing style.
  • MELLOW stands for an acoustic double bass that provides bottom end and texture. In organic coffee shop jazz just as well as a powerful voice in urban and soul genres.


Peter Gorges adds: “All three bassists are deep-sampled. They come with true-to-style built-in amps and effects. Most importantly for many, they share UJAM’s signature ease-of-use at uncompromised realism. They also play extremely well with UJAM’s other series such as the Virtual Guitarist or Drummer.”
