  • I love the hell out of this app Aug 26, 2018

    I play bass so much, so believe me when I play this app whenever I’m away from my actual bass. I love everything in this app and I highly recommend it. However my only request is that I would love to have a 6 string bass in here. I got one and when I’m far from my 6 string bass i want to be able to practice it. Either way I love the app !

    Pretty good but I think there's a problem with where the menu placement is ,would it be too much for it to out of my hand gripping my phone like a real bass cus wen I do I keep entering the menu. Also if something can be done to be able to muffle the chords cus it's like a never ending ring when I need it to be silent immediately thanks

    I’m always on the lookout for a bass guitar app that I can use in note taking Musical ideas as they arrive but in general all the apps I’ve tried, even the kind of boojy “fretless bass” app (which is an awesome and ground breaking midi controller, just not the best bass emulator)all the others tend to make the bass stand out as a feature, and not in a good way. So I was surprised when I ran across this “real bass” app to find that it actually does a good job of sitting in the mix while still retaining a natural tone and feel. Another good thing is the sustain pedal, something I’ve requested from other bass app devs but they never came through. A lot of bass parts are just riding that note in consecutive 8th, 16th or whatever notes and it’s nice NOT to have the little hiccups every time you lift your finger to hit the same note again. What could be better? Maybe velocity sensitivity, string bending, round robin sample layering per note so the ear doesn’t catch the repetition so easily. Less repetition of samples to fill adjacent frets. Especially not from string to string because every string has its own character and deserves its own sample. Those are pretty refined requests for an app that does the job better than average. Just putting it out there.

    Well, I was really digging on it just to be able to kind of play on something whilst I’m at work. It sounds great, and I’ve only played with two of the basses. But I went to the songs to see if that would show me how to play any of them, as the lessons do, and I clicked on plush(which I’m already familiar with on how to play,) and it simply brought up the fretboard, and was “playing,” according to the play button, but I wasn’t hearing any of plush. So I figure I could be utilizing said function wrong, but I thought I’d try to reach out to see what was up with that that. Because I’d be happy I’ll it to pay some money for this if it is going to legitimately show me we’re I need to be fingering. Especially on those A7X songs. I’ve been aching to learn more of them, but hey have some pretty tough stuff, sometimes. And all I know of them is nightmare. Thanks for the help, and great app! I’m the last one I tried like this was very mediocre.

    Amazing! I really really like this! But also, I wanted a chord mode in this. Kinda making myself fun with chords, but still a great app! Keep it up!

    I had no experience with the bass app. It just kept going to ads So I really cannot say much. At least a 1 day free trial of full version, to make a choice. Uninstaller before Anything happened

    This is not a great app in fact it isn't even close to good. This app fried my speakers now I need repairs. If you care about your speakers or your earring I'd recommend not downloading this app for your own safety. Trust me it's just another waste of precious time.

    They said and I quote, “learning the bass has never been easier.” That’s not true, you don’t learn the bass and there’s also a ton of junk and trash on this app. If you like and want this app because it’s of the sound, sure, but to learn, don’t. As I said, DO NOT BUY THIS APP. 😡👎

    I love this app for the true bass sound and playability. When I am not able to grab a bass work on a riff, i can open the app anywhere. I enjoy the ability to record.

    Been looking for an app like this. It’s great to have when sitting around without a bass guitar trying to lay down some bass lines. It’s just a fun app. Thank you.
  • Yes Oct 5, 2020

    By Mrwoogd
    It says it’s the best bass app it is I’m not disappointed just get it it’s so fun but turn down your volume on the distortion bass it’s loud

    This company makes the best guitar, bass, and drum apps for people who just want to get the experience of playing a real instrument on their phone. The samples are top notch, the interface is dead simple and inspiring, and while there are ads, they’re not obtrusive. Only thing that would make this (and all your apps) better is making it work with inter-app audio. That’s the only thing that bums me out, there is currently no possible way to record them into garageband.

  • Love it, but... May 16, 2018

    By Jobe USA
    I really dig Kolb’s apps, however, if they were Inter app, Audiobus, Audio Unit compatible, to use as a stand alone app in Garageband, that would be sooooo sweet!!! Please consider this as an update option...heck, I’d even PAY for that!!! I’ll give all the Kolb apps I have 5 stars when this happens!

    I don't know what's wrong, but this app won't connect to Bluetooth. Probably just a bug, but please bring that to attention.

    The finger bass is too piano-y. The only mode that really sounds like bass is the pick bass. And the way it sneaks commercials in is just a pain. I'd pay for it. But I'm also researching other bass apps because this one needs a lot of tweaking! A ton.

    The E string has issues. It lags a lot when trying to play fast

    The bass sounds don’t sound realistic at all, it has way too many ads and now I can’t even use it because it crashes every time I play a note. Terrible.
