Fretless Jazz

The Fretless Jazz is the bass played by one of the most famous electric bass players of all time. Its tone characterized Jaco’s style, driven by a fretless neck with unlimited expressiveness. The original was derived from a 1962 Fender Jazz Bass called “Bass of Doom” from which the frets were removed and history made.

The Mojo of MODO

Still the first and only technology that models the entire process of playing bass, MODO BASS recreates each string’s response to the action of the “player” and the interaction of the string with the fretboard, body and pickups of the bass instrument. Then using IK’s analog modeling expertise, the amp and effects of an electric bass rig are added to the sound chain.


All of this gives MODO BASS the ability to create sound in real time providing you the ever-changing, hyper-realistic bass sound your music needs to reach the next level. And since each individual bass doesn’t use samples, there’s more hard-drive space dedicated to recording your masterpieces.
