Virtual recreation of famous bass pedals from 70’s. Prepare for earth shattering bass!
Excellent bass synth.
Here’s the rebirth of the infamous Mainliner, designed specifically for big nasty dnb basslines. Twice, no thrice, as good.. 3×3 oscillators, 3 LFOs, 3 EnvGen, 2 Filters, FM, HardSync, shiny gui. Pile on the pulsewaves, detune to all buggery, slap over an 8-pole LPF and hoov away, sunshine.
NWBass is a free classic mono bassline synth.
- analogue modelled high quality oscillators with 2 waveforms (saw and square)
- unique filtersound with 3 selectable characteristics
- filter envelope
- velocity sensitive accent
- note slide
- full MIDI controll with MIDI learn function
- interpolated controlls
- parameter finetune via right mouse button
This synth was a collaborative effort produced by the SynthMaker forum members. It’s an emulation of the popular Roland TB-303 synth. This has a single oscillator (sawtooth or square) wave and use a simple envelope generator with decay control only. There’s also a low pass filter is also with -18 dB per octave attenuation.
B-station is a simple but powerfull bass plugin. It has 3 oscillators. Every oscillator has a fine tune/octave/pw/volume and 5 different waveforms. A mod oscillator for Pulse width and for phase modulation.
There are 4 different filters types; Lowpass/bandpass/hipass/and a 4 pole.
The filter has an envelope ADSRLT 12 curves and a BPM lfo
- a modulation Envelope for the pitch and Pulse width
- A simple Vibrato
- low and hi boost
- a arp
- Velocity filter and volume on/off
- glide /Retigger and a master volume

subfreak is an ultra-simple 2 Osc synth for creating low down and dirty sub bass
Just play your notes a couple of octaves below middle C for that deep subby hum change the waveform of Osc 2 to add a little grit
monomate is a monophonic synth designed to create retro sounding basslines and shrill leads. version 2.1 brings a new phase adjustable wave mix, the ever popular randomizer, and a nice knob for octive selection.
ritual is an analog style bass synthesizer that uses several unique techiques to create a thick & rich sound. oscillator 1 is a blend of a pulse & crushed triangle, while oscillator 2 uses a custom designed super-saw blended with a crushed sine. the synthesizer also uses a custom designed cascade filter system with a feedback chain for adding analog warmth to the sound. lfo and envelope modulators can target 8 different parameters in both positives and negatives using the modulation matrix.
A single oscillator bass synth with an 8 step sequencer. Many presets, and interesting sounds.

Emulation of the classic 303 bass synth.
Hi - This link is broken. If anyone has a copy of this software, you please let me know
Cetone033 is a simple bassline synthesizer. Its code ist based on some code examples from musicdsp.org.
2 Oscillators with Saw, Pulse and Triangle waveforms. Morph parameter controlls either pulsewidth or Triangle-to-Saw morph value.
2 Envelopes with attack and decay times from nearly zero up to one second.
Resonant Butterworth 24db filter
Aggressor is a monophonic synthesizer, which can be used as a VST instrument. The synth was specifically designed to produce aggressive bass- and lead-sounds where special attention was paid on the ability to authentically emulate the typical sound of the famous TB-303. The architecture is based on the classic VCO-VCF-VCA structure where each of the building blocks goes far beyond the typical implementation of bassline synths.
This section features bass-specific synths. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, you may want to check the ‘Synths - original synths’ category for more synths capable of Bass.
An adaption (not a real Emulation) of an “old acquaintance”
with the following functions: 2 X 8 waveforms - Tuning
- A-D-EG - EG-Amount - Overdrive - Ringmodulation - Delay
- 1-8 Step-Sequencer - Monophon - 16 User-patches
a little dirty bass-synth:
-2 Osc with 14 waves - oct-tune - mix and clipper
-Low-and-Band-Passfilter -A-D-EG -LFO - Monomode - and Portamento
-Double-delay and ADSR-VCA - 32 Patches - 6 voices
This is good for producing those rich deep basses of the 70’s analogue synths, There are two saw wave oscillators and a detune control that simultaneously sharpens one oscillator and flattens the other to get a fat sound.
Dream Sequencer is for Producing those simple deep bass sequences of the 70’s as produced by Tangerine Dream etc. The VSTi synchronizes with the host bpm / bar start, and it takes its root key from a “midi note” and plays for the duration from “note on” until “note off”.
Nice TB-303 kinda (so not really authentic at all!) plug with subosc and overdrive for that Phat Bassline. Works in most VST hosts like Cubase, FL, Project 5, Aodix and others.
LiveTweaker is a multi-functional instrument bringing together a 12-slot drum sampler, a drum synth and a monophonic synth in a single plug-in.
Conceived with live use in mind, the idea is to have 3 instruments on one single track for quick & easy tweaking using a MIDI controller. The second idea is to avoid sterile repetition of the same thing by including various random features. You can achieve subtle variations on a snare’s pitch, a cymbal’s decay, or simulate the osc pitch instability of an old analogue synth, but you can also turn your pattern into something totally different after each repetition. Livetweaker aims to keep things both simple, quick, and easy to use, all along with deep user customizable features for more sonic control.
Creakbox Bassline is a mono synth with a built in sequencer. It has a 5 octave range and sounds very much like a killer little box many try to duplicate.
ProjectX1 is a hybrid bass synth utilizing subtractive,fm,phase distortion and unison synthesis. It’s essentially a monophonic
synth but has a pseudo stereo mode also and features 2 filters,2 adsr’s,mod envelope generator,2 modulation matrix’s with 24
possible destinations each and the source signals can also be inverted.
There’s two effects types which are
widely used in music production today; a tube amp simulator which allows you to control gain,clip,speed,cap,bias,shape and mix and also a bit crusher with selectable modes of operation. A unison oscillator has been added but the synth does’nt operate in unison mode. Peak follow has been added and can grunge up the sound a bit more. Most of the knobs/sliders can be controlled via midi and there’s also dual waveshapers or assymetrical waveshaping for want of a better term.
