Inject your next single with authentic sounding acoustic bass sounds, using Sound Magic’s free Sienna Bass VST2 plugin.

Audiographer Redjoy Reza, using the Maize Sampler, recorded his acoustic bass in his studio to share its sound with all musicians. The interface is super simple to use with a volume dial, and attack, decay, sustain and release knobs.

Whether a VST and MIDI keyboard can ever truly replace a real bass guitar is an argument for another day, but if you can’t play bass or don’t have a guitar to hand, this plugin is the next best thing.

Sienna Bass is small in size at around 7MB, and available in VST2 for 32 and 64-bit Windows-only currently. No email address is required. Head here and follow the instruction on the site for the password to extract. Head to Sound Magic for more sales and freebies.
