The gorgeous retro bass sound of Kee Bass is just a free download away.
Kee Bass, released by Martinic, is a virtual instrument plugin developed to faithfully imitate the retro Rheem Kee Bass. The first of its kind back in the 1960s, the Rheem Kee Bass was a monophonic string bass simulator.
Despite being a hugely popular plugin, the good folks at Martinic are still offering a license for the stylish VST/AU plugin completely free.
Martinic modelled the Kee Bass without using sampling, basing the plugin on a real physical Kee Bass and the original electronic schema before adding a few cool modern features like a filter and modulation. The result is a warm vintage sound with a rich low end much loved by musicians and producers.
