MusicRadar on MODO BASS 2

“IK Multimedia affirms its brilliance for making virtual session players.”

IK's MODO BASS 2 is the expanded edition of IK's industry-first physically modeled bass virtual instrument. In their recent review, MusicRadar gives MODO BASS 2 a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars, covering the virtual instrument from every angle. Here are some highlights and a link to the full review below.

MusicRadar Verdict

"Though the modelling is top-notch, it's IK's considered approach for letting us play its basses in a multitude of styles that makes the most lasting impression.


  • 22 exceptionally modelled virtual basses
  • A whole wealth of control and customisation options
  • Fretless models provide even more tones and moods
  • Easy-to-navigate interface

"While production and arrangement innovations come and go, the bass guitar still remains a fixture across genres. From funk to rock, R&B to rap, solid, ambidextrous basslines, driven by human finger-flair and melodic improvisation, aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

MODO Bass 2 is, without question, the finest virtual electric bass instrument(s) we've so far used.


"IK Multimedia's MODO Bass 2 essentially grants the user with a complete virtual bassist, with up to 22 basses including an opulent new double bass model and a few fretless options.

What's startlingly apparent is how bonafide these modelled basses sound. It's testament to IK's extremely meticulous modelling approach, rendering various pickup types, string gauges, ages and playing styles with aplomb, each tweak of which can massively affect our bass's sound.


"Spending some time with the brand new Patterns browser reveals a sample library-like navigation system, with oven-ready bassline types organised by genre, key and play style.

The Studio Upright sound is utterly magical and classy. The flowing note legato options, controlled via our MIDI keyboard, allow us to apply spritely, kinetic workouts and sliding ominous rumbles to our tracks with minimal effort.


"If you're reliant on bass samples, or you're suffering from a lack of low end inspiration, MODO Bass 2 provides a global insight into a pro-bass player's mindset, and the end results sound indistinguishable from hiring a bass major for the day."
