"It’s very cool for the subs and those dirty bass sounds! I think it’s perfect for the low end and mid range bass jobs."
. DJ & Producer

Modern Bass. Mix-ready Bass. Monoment Bass.

  • Super-high-quality bass synth with stereo source sounds from top-end boutique hardware​.
  • Blend noise with two different sources at once for a textured and highly complex sound​​.
  • Professional presets from Madison Mars, Vandalism, Sample Tools by Cr2, WA production, Black Octopus, and Function Loops​.
  • Modular Ready: works as a native instrument plug-in and as modules in Modular, Softube's Eurorack platform.

In the modern day, music production leans more heavily on bass than ever before. Although track counts can number a hundred or more, often the core of a song is built around little more than a beat, a vocal, and a rich, living bass sound.

So, an instrument dedicated to just that – tailored to producing huge, solid bass tones with complex, organic overtones, focused effects, and as much bass as you want when you build your own version in Modular for a mix-ready low end – is more than just useful. It’s foundational. Monoment Bass lays the groundwork for top-quality tracks every time.

Stereo Soundscapes

All of the source material in Monoment Bass was recorded in stereo from high-end rare and boutique synths, giving huge, wide, and mood-defining sounds.

Task-specific Effects

Including a purpose-built multi-band compressor, and a spatialization tool for fine-tuning your stereo image, Monoment Bass has great-sounding effects, but more importantly, the right effects for the job.

Professional Presets

Amazing out-of-the-box sounds designed by Madison Mars, Vandalism, Sample Tools by Cr2, WA production, Black Octopus, and Function Loops, for finely tuned futureproof sounds from moment one.

Use it in Modular

Monoment Bass includes Source, Filter, and FX modules for Softube Modular so you can build your own bass synth with as many sources as you want.

Modern Music, Modern Instrument

Working with sound designer and rare-synth-collector Tobias Menguser, we set out on this project to tackle the vital problem of amazing-sounding, weighty bass parts in modern music. In so many modern styles, from pop and hip hop to club dance genres and electro music, the bass occupies more and more of the spectrum and does more and more of the heavy lifting in production terms. So we’ve provided a carefully selected and expertly curated collection of top-end sounds, paired them with easy-to-use and awesome-sounding synth architecture, and high quality analog effects for modern, mix-ready bass in seconds.

Get Complex Quickly

Monoment Bass includes a two-layer source section, with all-stereo sources offering rich and evolving sounds. Nothing is static, and all the sources were recorded in triplicate, so there are three different samples per key for additional naturalism and life. The resulting sounds leap out of the speakers and grab hold of your track. Right out of the box and with minimal tweaking, this instrument has authority, weight, heft, power, character. The filter, LFO, and amp are all geared to musicians – you don’t need a degree in synth-geekery to use Monoment Bass – and the effects are designed step-by-step for just this crucial task.

Noise, Dirt, Magic

Using the aging knob, you can introduce a host of analog-ish imperfections to your bass sound. And a third noise source is available at all times, with multiple organic noise options, to add crunch to the attack or grit to the body of your sound. Add analog distortion, ambience, and tone-shaping in the effects section, and you’ll be surprised by the range of colorful living sounds your track can hold. Monoment, by virtue of its high input quality and carefully selected sculpting options, becomes more than a part of your mix. It’s the very core and heart of your mix.

The Modular Modules

Monoment Source

Monoment Source is the source engine from Monoment Bass as a stand-alone module. It has a built-in amplitude envelope, waveform mixing, dirt level, and aging. It can be played monophonically within modular over midi or monophonically via the gate and note jacks. The glide, punch, release, and aging parameters have external CV control via jacks.

Monoment Filter

Monoment Filter is the filter section from Monoment Bass as a stand-alone module. It has a built-in filter envelope and LFO. The envelope is triggered through the external gate jack. The slew, range, amount, and swing sequencer functions have external CV control. The LFO can be automatically locked to the DAW tempo or set to free running mode.

Monoment FX

Monoment FX is the effects engine for Monoment Bass as a stand-alone module. It has four modes, drive, EQ, multi comp, and spatialization, that can be run one at a time. Up to three parameters in each mode have external CV control.

System Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.12 or newer (older OS versions may work but are not tested (64-bit only).
  • Windows 64-bit, versions 7, 8 or 10 (64-bit only).
  • Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or newer.
  • Screen resolution 1280x800 or larger.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz, in both mono and stereo.
  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended, as well as at least 8 GB hard disk space for installation (individual plug-ins take less space, while sample libraries may require additional disk space).
  • A Softube account is required to register and install the software.
  • An iLok account is required for authorisation of the software.
  • Internet access for downloading installer and managing licenses.
  • iLok generation 2 and up, if you intend to use a physical iLok dongle for authorizing your plug-ins (note that an iLok dongle is not a requirement).
  • In theory, any 64-bit VST, VST3, AU, or AAX (11.0.2 or higher) compatible host application should work.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs - and our own rigorous testing standards - we only officially test our plug-ins and instruments in the most recent versions of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Studio One, Digital Performer, Reaper and Sonar. Softube plugins are not tested in the non-listed systems, but they most likely work as long as the system requirements are met. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported systems.

Important note: make sure that you always use the latest iLok License Manager. It is not included in the Softube installer but can be downloaded from www.ilok.com​
