Your one plugin bass amp solution

If you have trouble getting a good bass tone out of a DI’d bass track…GET THIS PLUG IN. 

Often times in hard rock, or metal music, the bass is hard to get right — it gets buried in the mix, it becomes flubby or begins to jangle too much and lose its low end…— let’s face it, we’ve all been there! With Bassforge Rex Brown I am able to dial in a mix ready, tight and clear bass tone without losing any of the deep lows a bass needs — all mixed within the plug in itself! If you want to keep it simple and easy and use only one plugin to achieve a brutal bass tone, Bassforge Rex Brown is absolutely it — it has become integral to my mixing process.

Edwin Barillas
Solid bass plugin!

Let me start off by saying, awesome! Bassforge Rex brown is a total different beast from Bassforge Hellraiser. It’s a really user friendly plugin to use so achieving a good tone is rather simple! Don’t let the frequency shapers fool you, they’re very simple to use and make noticeable changes when you boost or cut. Built in booster, chorus, and reverb really help you create your own unique sound. Another really awesome feature is the dual bank, if you wanna A/B tones is super easy to use and do. 5 band parametric eq is solid as well. I’d definitely recommend this plugin to all! I’ll be using this plugin for tones of sessions to come!

Just a few click to a finished bass tone!

I used to have a really long bass chain to get a mix ready bass sound from a DI, but with the new Bassforge plugin I literally just find a good preset, make a couple tweaks and it fits PERFECTLY in the mix and has so much amp like vibe and character.
