Rare Monophonic Bass Synth Emulated

US Martinic Kee Bass physically models the Rheem Kee Bass monophonic string bass simulator      04/10/19

Martinic has released Kee Bass, a VST/AU plug-in that they describe as a faithful emulation of one of the first monophonic string bass simulators - the Rheem Kee Bass. A spokesperson told us, "Bring some groovy, bassy vibes back from the ‘60s and straight into your music." This is what Martinic has to say about it...

Our Kee Bass is based on the original electronic schema and an actual physical Kee Bass. Firstly, we modeled the instrument precisely (no sampling at all), then we added a few modern features to make it more versatile and unique.
