YOUR (B)ASS DESERVES THE BEST
Crafting a bass sound that sits great in a mix is an art. STD offers a complex recording chain based on Jens Bogren's favourite amp, using state-of-the-art algorithms to get you THAT sound in seconds. You gotta try it to believe it!
Have your own IRs? Use the cab-off switch and apply your preferred cab sound with the lush tone of an American Classic head.
BassKnob's design is pretty much as intuitive as it gets. Drop it into your DAW or crack open the standalone app, pick the Clean or Dirty channel, squeeze the knob til' you smile, and get to it.
Out of tune? We've got your back. Pop open the tuner, get that pesky low B-string in order, and lay down that magical bassline in your head before it's gone forever.
So whether you're sitting down for a practice session, capturing a quick musical idea, or tracking and mixing your band's next banger, BassKnob: STD lets you hit the ground running so you can keep your mind on the important stuff: making great music.
The future of speaker modeling
Our IRDX (Impulse Response Dynamix) technology breathes life into the guitar sound by adding dynamic and true-to-life speaker behavior to static impulse responses.
IRDX technology, developed by producer Jens Bogren, uses advanced machine learning methods to reconstruct the difference between a real cab and an impulse response.
The end result is a guitar amp sim that reacts like a real amp, easily fits in a mix without sounding stale, and feels great when playing through.
Impulse Responses are excellent at capturing the tonality and resonance of a guitar cabinet, but by nature they are only a static snapshot in time.
By itself, an impulse response has the tonal characteristics of a real cab but without dynamics, it creates a lifeless, fatiguing sound.
Real-life guitar speakers react dynamically to the input from the amplifier. They move air, compress, and break up depending on how hard they are being pushed by the amp.
