United Plugins announces the availability of Muramasa Audio Bassment as an all-in-one, single-screen bass guitar solution


PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: After striking production gold last year working with development partner Muramasa Audio to bring guitarists a nifty all-in-one single-screen guitar amp and pedalboard plug-in -one in Electrum, the federation of independent development teams United Plugins are proud to announce the availability of Bassment – working again with Muramasa Audio, this time to seriously satisfy bassists by building an all-in-one multi-effects solution single-screen around a flexible bass amp simulation – starting April 5…

As an all-in-one single-screen bass guitar solution, Muramasa Audio’s Bassment plug-in includes several color-coded components (further visualized as controlled virtual effects pedals) – namely, AMP , with input GAIN going all the way from soft to hard settings with perfectly tuned five-band EQ controls (LOW BASS, HIGH BASS, LOW MIDS, HIGH MIDS and TREBLE), explicit DRY/WET control , and more ; AUTOWAH, implements an automatic wah-wah filter following INPUT LEVEL, best suited for funky styles; CABINET, includes 15 simulations combined with 15 adjustments to put together a true virtual amp simulator with multiple parameters to produce a much smoother, more natural sound that avoids all of the unnatural resonances present with almost all IRs (Impulse Responses); COMP (compressor), reduces the volume of loud sounds or amplifies quiet sounds, thus reducing or compressing the dynamic range of the audio signal; EQ, provides a powerful graphic equalizer useful for further customizing the tonal response; (noise) GATE, removes any noise, hum, and leakage from other instruments that may still be present in the input signal and be amplified by Bassment’s amplification and distortion stages, while allowing users to create a contemporary choppy sound useful for modern metal genres where everything needs to be very precise and punchy attacks are always appreciated; LEVELER, controls signal volume changes by automatically raising the volume; MODULATION, allows users to mix multiple effects rather than requiring multiple pedal simulations, allowing all algorithms involved to be perfectly synchronized, thus facilitating operation; and SUB, adds sub-harmonic frequencies to allow users to play guitar (single note) to sound like a bass guitar.

Fortunately for all bassists looking to quickly change their sound with the utmost of ease, changing the order of operation of these color-coded components is a simple matter of dragging and dropping them into the desired position in the effects processing chain. – and all this without worrying. on respecting real-world setups to encourage experimentation, although GATE is usually the first such component in the effects processing chain. Conversely, positioning the EQ before the AMP will also affect the character of the distortion, while positioning it after will only change the tone. It’s worth noting here that it’s also perfectly possible to bypass any of these color-coded components at any time by simply double-clicking the relevant rectangular blocks bearing their name – no need to dive deep into the menus that solicit muscle memory. looking for hidden options since everything is already accessible on a single screen, in other words.

Today’s burgeoning market means that most guitar software, even the most successful, suffers from flawed design, doing little to improve efficiency and comfort when used in a musical environment. Ergonomics is, of course, at the heart of Muramasa Audio building Bassment as an all-in-one single-screen multi-effects solution around a flexible bass amp that is as flexible as possible, effectively following the same principles previously applied. with so much success when running Electrum to give guitarists a nifty all-in-one guitar amp and pedalboard plug-in.

In other words, there’s so much more to Bassment than its easy-to-use, eye-pleasing Graphical User Interface (GUI) – itself easily resizable and available to be viewed as a photorealistic 3D affair or flattened like Graphics. 2D at the convenient click of an appropriate button without affecting sound or CPU (Central Processing Unit) load – might first suggest, like an ENTRY LEVEL OF ANALYSIS that ensures everything sounds its best, whatever regardless of the equipment used. Ultimately, by activating the on-screen button and then playing as loud as intended for a few seconds, Bassment automatically configures its input level to find the perfect sweet spot to match the strength of the audio signal with the point of ideal work of the treatment involved; Perfect gain staging and volume balance help users get the most out of Bassment. Best of all, EQ MATCHING really is Bassment’s secret weapon, where it’s simply a matter of loading a short piece of a desired bass guitar solo sound and looping it for analysis using the ANALYZE button. TARGET SOUND before analyzing the user’s guitar tone using the ANALYZE YOUR TONE button — prepare to be amazed by Bassment’s ability to automatically match the resulting tone with incredible precision!

Additional features of Bassment worth highlighting here include an advanced, ultra-fast and ultra-accurate TUNER section in response to ensure that the bass guitar performance being processed will never go out of tune, as well as global parameters for INPUT (to increase the input gain), BASSMAN (to control the level of the SUB), OUTPUT (to control the general output level of the plug-in) and LIMITER (to prevent the output signal from exceeding 0 dB) .

At first glance, Bassment essentially provides everything needed to quickly and easily get any bass guitar to sound perfect in a single window while using its internal 64-bit audio processing to handle any sample rate up to at 192kHz (or even higher) plus smart bypass and smart sleep-on-silence attributes, all aimed at separating it from the (plug-in) crowd sound in today’s teeming market.
