    Great app. I love fiddling around with this, and changing tunings and the style of Bass guitar is quick and easy. My only gripe with it is you can't do custom tuning, you have to choose from the list it gives you. It's not a huge issue, but I would like to see them fix it to where you can choose the tuning of each string.

  • Not bad at all. Aug 22, 2020

    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.

    It's a great sounding bass for practicing on the go. I don’t notice any latency issues that others mentioned, so it may be a device issue. The only complaint that I have is there is no way to move the menu out of the way. I like to turn my phone and use my fingers like I'm playing a real bass, but the menu gets in the way. If there was an option to move it or turn it off, that would be awesome.

    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.

    Great help learning on the fly. Would give it 5 stars but there is some latency (lag) playing between notes. I wish the developers could correct this because this could be a #1 bass app imo and I have tried at least 9 to 12 different apps. Other than that its nice, you can palm mute, sustain, move the fret board and different bass sounds and more. 👍🏾

    It makes a buzz sound when I hit a string, which makes it kind of impossible and not fun to play and record. I don't know whether it's my phone's problem, because your drumming app works just fine. Please fix this issue, because it used to be perfect.

    Since they changed its ui to this new fine looking one it has been a laggy mess. Fortunately not in the bass screen. The selection screen lags like nobody's business. And my phone is a 3gb ram octa-core phone so I have no idea why it should lag. Secondly since this current version... It just freezes. I'm really annoyed at this especially since this was the only good bass app here. Really sucks. Please fix.

    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.but the recent changes makes me give it a bad rating.i would love for the recording to not convert to mp3 automaticly plus when i play back a recording it takes 3 seconds before it plays it because something on the screen is loading.When you do a lot of recordings this can be very anoying.i'll give it a better rate if it goes back to how it was

    The apps will hang once I play 2 strings at the same time for afew times. At times, the apps lags too. Saved mp3 can't be shared with others. Developer please do something about this.

    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.

  • 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!

    Response time is perfect, sliding doesn't work like I want, and strings are too close together to play some adjacent notes, but it is fun and I have used it to come up with some fun riffs when I didn't have my bass handy and got the urge.

    I love the fact that it sound so real and the actual timing is great.. But having ads every after recording is so anoying and irritatting.. its really waisting lots of time. i got to find another apps that is free of ads. Thanks by the way to the creator of this apps.. i still rate 3 star for a great job👌

    Way too laggy, but a nice layout. Hard to play along with any song when every note is a bit behind evey screen touch. App needs to respond instantly to every note so I can play in time with the music on my phone.

    latency is a pain. there are some good variety of basses to choose from, but could be better if the tone could be further altered. if not for the latency, would probably rank **** though.

    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.

  • Crap app May 16, 2020

    By Xbrianx808
    Like most of these apps, there is no close the app button or function so once its open on your phone you can’t easily get out. No matter the quality of the app if you can’t easy get out it a zero in my book.
