Sound

Bass Master is a synth published by Loopmasters, with this newest addition, the company address the bass niche market and also a vertical that is dominated by hardware-based bass synths. To prepare the review, Loopmasters send me an early version before release – I did use it for three weeks.

Bass Master is devoted to gritty bass. With the included set of 217 waveforms, you can create 50,000 bass instruments across two layers. Bass Master arrives with over 350 presets to get you started. The presets are sorted in a smart way and overall I was happy with most of the preset sounds.

The low-end sounds are helpful when you combine it with sound design tools like TRAVELER by TONSTURM. Add some Beatformer by accusonus and Novatron by Kush Audio to get into sound design space. Novatron or REDDI alone is adding the big bang.

On its own and without adding any third-party plugins you can get excellent sounding low-ends, also Bass Master is pushing out some cool sounding subs.
