Album-Ready Bass Amplifier Tones

US Bogren Digital launches the BassKnob STD one-knob solution      30/08/22

Following on from their AmpKnob RevC guitar amp simulation plug-in, Bogren Digital has announced the launch of the BassKnob STD. They say that, designed to provide users album-ready bass amplifier tones without hassle and option anxiety, the BassKnob STD is a plug-in with a deliberately simplistic feature set -- but with a lot going on under the hood. They tell us that BassKnob STD is built upon cutting-edge digital technology and has been meticulously sound-designed by world-renowned metal producer Jens Bogren. Here's more details direct from the company...

The Fast Track to Album-Ready Bass Guitars
The BassKnob STD provides rock and metal producers the straightest path possible from musical ideas to an album-ready bass guitar recording. The plug-in's feature set is minimal, but well-chosen:

  • Two channels, Clean and Dirty
  • A Gain knob, setting the overall gain level
  • On/Off switch for the included cabinet emulation, should the user want to use a different cabinet IR
  • Built-in tuner


This means the user can simply connect their bass guitar, launch the plug-in, and start recording with a rock bass sound that just sounds right. No more hours lost to tweaking or option anxiety -- the BassKnob STD handles the sound, allowing the user to focus on the song and the performance.

The Bass Amp
The plug-in is based on Jens Bogren's personal specimen of a well-known American tube bass amp head, which delivers its thunderous sound through a classic 8x10 cabinet. The rig is captured with a selection of ultra-quality microphones, preamps, and studio processors. All of Jens' 20+ years of recording experience has been poured into the BassKnob STD, using the exact same tools he uses for high-level clients such as Sepultura, Kreator, and Opeth.

BassKnob STD is compatible with any major DAW. It is available immediately, and a free 14-day trial is available.
