■ Software-based sound source
MODO BASS is not a sample-based sound source, but the first electric bass sound source by physical modeling. Based on a whole new technology that redefines computer-based virtual instruments, the physical synthesis of real-time acoustics based on the physical models of all aspects that form the final bass sound. It is a bass sound source based on the modeling concept. First, the bass itself as an instrument is modeled. Not only the body materials, strings, pickups and wiring that make up the bass, but also their interactions are modeled. In addition, various playing styles, amps and effects are also modeled. Then, the sound is synthesized in real time based on the physical model such as the characteristics and playing style of the actual musical instrument.
