Gentleman Bassist DANDY is your stylish, warm vintage bass. Impeccably well dressed and polite. Completely deadly on bass!
DANDY is your first call when you need an experienced professional bassist who is fully present in the mix but never sounds “loud” or obnoxious. There is no aggression in the game. No, DANDY quietly reproduces ultra-smooth, polished bass without distracting attention or taking up too much space in the mix. How civilized!
DANDY uses its understated charm to make you sound and feel amazing. Our carefully sampled flat-wound bass guitar has a stylish, warm and understated vintage sound that differs markedly from our more modern virtual bass players ROYAL 2 and ROWDY 2. However, when combined with the included multi-effects, DANDY effortlessly reproduces the fantastic tones that sound in both modern and vintage products.
DANDY sounds great on any product that needs electric bass, but is especially good on soul, pop, blues and rock tracks. Our specially designed DSP algorithms propel the unprocessed bass sound in many directions – from soft, rounded tones (perfect for vibrant old-school soul and blues tracks) to vibrant modern pop and rock. Try mixing DANDY with your synth bass lines for a little more life and sophistication!
DANDY is ideal for producers of all skill levels. Trouble-free controls ensure beginners get great-sounding results unlike standard repeating loops. Experienced keyboardists can easily bypass the virtual musician features and play the bass lines just the way they like. Everyone gets great bass in their pieces!
DANDY automatically follows the key and chord you play and intelligently selects the most musical articulations to make your tracks shine. The result is fantastic bass, delivered quickly and without drama. The player mode uses some groundbreaking technology to bring super-realistic bass to your music, even if you’re not playing bass or keyboard. 990 masterfully played phrases in 30 different musical styles that can be seamlessly and seamlessly pieced together to create the perfect performance for your song. Note that these aren’t just boring MIDI loops.
If you prefer to record your own phrases (or even bass solos!) Instrument mode gives you full access to all articulations. This means you can use your MIDI controller to play exactly the way you want with maximum creative expression (including adding dead notes, dots and even slides!) The
versatility of this instrument is further enhanced by its many powerful and easy using the sound shaping options. Quickly choose from a variety of different amps and effects before picking the right character for your song. Then adjust the EQ and dynamics to truly sweeten your sound and take your products to the next level.
