QuickBass

Multi-Effect by United Plugins

Bass is usually considered to be the coolest of all instruments. Mainly by the bassists. Recorded with a good DI, a fine bass often sounds perfect as you get it but often needs just a little push here and there. And that is why Instant Audio came up with QuickBass. To give you the quick EQ, quick compression, quick saturation, and fatness in no time, QuickBass is the ultimate bass polisher and finalizer. 

All-in-one bass solution

Using multiple plugins to achieve one goal simply makes no sense. You can experience unwanted interaction between plugins and their extra features (unnecessary for the job) can drain your CPU power. So Instant Audio decided to put all the tools you need to get the perfect bass sound into one box with as few knobs as possible to find the sweet spot between speed and versatility.

Ready for your technique

No matter what technique you play, Quick bass adapts to it. The EQ is internally preset to deliver the best sound for finger or pick styles, and for funky slap technique. The Millerize button makes it ready for slap-solo sound treating your mids a special way. Although most of the curve is preset you still have a few EQ knobs to fine-tune. But starting at zero positions is recommended.

Slight to heavy compression

A great compressor is a must-have. It treats the dynamics and colours too. QuickBass lets you blend between Vari-mu, Opto and FET compressor types to give your bass the desired character. How much you want to squeeze is all your choice.

Bigger, fatter. Too thin?

That is a common bass problem. QuickBass solves it with its unique one-knob doubler. It can also generate sub-bass to give you that nice fat bottom that every song needs. It's the bass that makes crowds dance.

Gentle to harsh

There's no amusement without saturation, and QuickBass handles this section with care. Its parallel saturator can deliver anything between "just-a-little" analogue feel and heavy bass distortion only a valve amp could deliver (before there was QuickBass, of course).

Number of presets

QuickBass was developed and tuned with (and by) bassists. It is most likely that you will be able to set up your sound just by dialling one of a huge number of presets prepared by both mixing engineers and bass players like Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree, O.r.k). QuickBass covers all styles from Jazz to Death Metal.

Hassle-free software protection

No iLok, no dongle nor internet access is required for activation. This software uses licence files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Realistic 3D yet flexible GUI

The photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save the valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart bypass

The intelligent way this plugin manages bypassing ensures that you don't get any click or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

Intelligent sleep on silence

This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. And if not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all saves the computing sources for other processes.
