While you need to make music from your home studio but you don’t have a Bass Guitar.
Because you are a Guitar player and you have only a Guitar. And … You feel that you don’t need to buy a Bass guitar, a real Bass.
So, obviously you will need a Virtual Bass software for your home studio project. Or in other case, because you can’t found a real Bass Player maybe? …
Here we found some of Virtual Bass software that you can use in your favorite DAW as VSTi plugin.
Some of DAW softwares are come with bunch of VSTi plugins. Including virtual bass of course. That, you can record a midi sound with it. Whether using a Midi controller or just using your computer’s keyboard.
But, if you want it to have it 100% realistic sounding bass then it will need a lot of effort to make it happen.
Because mostly, the built in VSTi plugin in DAW software is good to create an electronics kind of music.
If you use it to make a music that wasn’t electronic e.g. Metal, Rock, Blues, Jazz etc. Then it will sound weird for sure.
So the solution is by using Virtual Bass (Instrument) that have a decent and realistic sound.
And here they are! we found some of Virtual Bass software that known have a realistic sound just like real Bass Players virtuoso.

Note and conclusion
Okay guys, that’s three Virtual Bass software on our list that you can use one oh them on your music project or whatever.
I am not a make a bunch of Virtual Bass software lists because I don’t want to confuse you by the way. And ya! because we are not a Lists maker Blog.
Personally, I’d like to record a real Bass guitar sound or by a real Bass player. Even if it from DI Bass and then using Bass Amp Simulator plugins for the sound. It more natural and have more dynamic tone and sound in my opinion.
