Lets Get Ready To Rock

ROWDY’s loud-mouthed, rebel sound and angry playing style means that even seasoned bass players themselves will appreciate the ability to get great sounding ideas down fast – with practically zero learning curve.

Powerful & Energetic

ROWDY confidently delivers picked overdriven electric bass sounds suitable for a variety of styles, ranging from powerful punk to red-hot rock and modern metal.

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble

It can purr, but it’s built to roar. With a hand-selected, specially modified vintage bass guitar, hot amps, a fuzz box and even an octaver. It’s definitely a rocker and could also do with taking a shower but we’re too afraid to ask…

Frustration-Free Design

Designed with the UJAM frustration-free philosophy, ROWDY’s easy to use GUI and controls make it possible to achieve fantastic sounding and aggressive basslines in no time – no matter what your level of music production experience is.

Player Mode

Virtual Bassist ROWDY has two distinct modes – Player Mode lets you quickly choose from one of the 60 styles and 1380 phrases with your MIDI controller, seamlessly following in an intelligently musical way whatever key or chord is being played.

Instrument Mode

The Instrument Mode is one for the keyboard wizards and opens up the entire ROWDY fretboard to be played like a traditional sampler, complete with dead notes, full stops and even slides.

Tone-Sculpting Controls

Perfect your performances and sound with Virtual Bassist ROWDY’s powerful yet simple tone-sculpting controls. Choose between a DI signal and 3 separate hand-picked amps with separate dial-in controls for overdrive and fuzzy rudeness.

The character knob can then give you instant access to many useful scuzzy sonic flavours before adding the cherry on top with an octaver and a simple EQ and dynamics section.

PreSonus Chord & Key Track

With the new Virtual Bassist 2.1 update UJAM provides Studio One users running on version 4.6.2 or later with an exclusive PreSonus chord and key track feature! Descriptions of styles and phrases are displayed on the piano roll to help you find the right styles and phrases faster and easier for your track.

The new chord track feature in Studio One automatically follows the chords and automatically changes the MIDI notes for you.

Find Your Unique Playing Style With The Detailed Performance Controls

As with every UJAM product, ROWDY benefits from their frustration-free design philosophy meaning anyone can use this product to make music faster, better and easier, regardless of their music production experience level.

Menu Bar   

The top bar of the Virtual Bassist ROWDY interface lets you load and save presets. It also contains important management functions from checking your trial status to contacting support.

Preset Browser

A preset in Virtual Bassist ROWDY is a complete setting of the entire plugin including Style selection and all control values. Here’s how you can switch presets:

  • Advance to the next preset by clicking one of the arrows left and right of the PRESET name.
  • Click on the name of the current preset in the PRESET menu to open the Preset Browser (see image above).

Player & Instrument Mode

Virtual Bassist ROWDY can perform either as a bass player or as a bass instrument, and you can switch between those two at any time.

  • In PLAYER Mode, you can play chords or notes and select phrases and this way control the performance of the built-in bass player. In PLAYER Mode, you also have the option to play the notes yourself and have just the groove and phrasing provided by the player, or to play chords and let the player perform melodic riffs and figures matching that chord (Melodic Mode).
  • In INSTRUMENT Mode, Virtual Bassist ROWDY emulates a super-realistic electric bass guitar that you can play on your MIDI keyboard.

Interactive Keyboard

The Interactive Keyboard is both a display of received MIDI notes and an actually functional on-screen keyboard – with the only exception that notes you play on the Interactive Keyboard are not recorded into your DAW.

Timing Parameters

Only in Player Mode, you will find a menu icon in the top right corner of the user interface. Click it to open a selection of Timing parameters that you can use to adjust your Virtual Bassist ROWDYs performance to your song.

  • Speed – The Speed switch lets you halve (0.5x) or double (2x) Virtual Bassist ROWDY’s tempo relative to the song tempo.
  • Swing – This function, often also called “Shuffle”, delays the off-beats. Virtual Bassist ROWDY will automatically switch the Swing resolution to 8th or 16th note depending on the selected Style.
  • Feel – You can tweak the feel of your bass player’s performance either towards relaxed or rushed using this control.
  • Timing – Like a real human, your session player in Virtual Bassist ROWDY plays ever so slightly around the quantised note grid. You can vary how “human” you want those phrases to be played.

Latch

When Latch is activated, once you press a key in the Chord range, Virtual Bassist ROWDY will keep playing until you press the Stop key.

You can use an optional Sustain Pedal as a temporary Latch. Lifting the sustain pedal unlatches any notes that are no longer held, even if the Latch switch is still on.

Style

Here you choose a STYLE – the selection of phrases accessible via the Style Phrases range on the keyboard.

Common Phrases

The lower left of the MIDI keyboard (C♯0 – B1) is reserved for a collection of so-called Common Phrases. These phrases are “hard-wired” and won’t change with the STYLE selection. Common Phrases complement the Style Phrases by patterns that are more generic and applicable to multiple contexts.

Style Phrases

Keys in the C2-Bb2 range play phrases of the currently selected Style. White keys play regular cyclic phrases, while black keys trigger Intros (C# and D#) as well as Fills (F#, G#, A#).











Fine Tune Your Mix & Add Effects

Bass Setup

This area is where you tweak the overall sound character and dynamic response of the bass guitar.

Fuzz – Virtual Bassist ROWDY features a Fuzz distortion stage. It adds significant harmonic and character to the bass sound before it enters the pre-amp of the Amp setup. Use Fuzz subtly in combination with the amplifiers Drive control to add extra fatness and presence, or turn it up for a super-dirty fat bass sound. Whereas the Drive control of the AMP section is out of order when you use the Direct output, FUZZ always works independent of AMP selection!

Character

The Character control is a chicken head switch selects one of four basic characteristics. These define the overall sound character as well as the dynamic response. Under the hood…

  • The sound character is achieved by a bass channel featuring various audio processors to control the low, mid and high end.
  • The dynamic response attenuation limits the “spectral” range of the bass guitar so that the same velocity levels sent to Virtual Bassist ROWDY produce different sound characters without affecting the overall volume response too much.

Drop D

This switch, when activated, tunes the E string down by a whole note, dropping the pitch to D (hence the name). This extends the note range to D, but also makes the note range played by the E string sound different.

Octaver

The Octaver is less of a typical mixer channel component, but a bass-typical effect: It adds a duplicate of the bass signal one octave above the original. The knob controls the volume of the effect signal.

AMP Setup

This switch sends the bass guitar signal through either one of three bass amp setups or selects a direct signal in case you want to use an external amp (plugin).

The Amp Models include top amp, cabinet and microphones and are perfected for a range of applications of Virtual Bassist ROWDY.

Drive

This control adjusts the overdrive level of the bass amp to create a slightly distorted sound. The effect is very different depending on the AMP setup you’ve chosen.

As graphically indicated, the DRIVE control has no effect when you’ve chosen the Direct setting of the AMP control.

Bass Channel Setup        

Virtual Bassist ROWDY features a bass channel with three audio processors dedicated for exactly this type of bass sound – a Compressor, an Equalizer and an Octaver.

Compressor

As you turn up the Compressor control in Virtual Bassist ROWDY, you will notice that the overall volume goes slightly up, that notes in the lower dynamic range sound louder, and – towards the maximum – the bass becomes more attack-y, i.e. the transients are shaped accordingly.

Equalizer

The Equalizer complements the CHARACTER control really nicely in that combining the two creates a large variety of bass sounds.

Master Volume

The Volume knob adjusts the master output volume of Virtual Bassist ROWDY. It is a highly dynamic instrument, and there is a lot of functionality – from Force to Compressor to Amps – affecting the overall volume, so use this control to adjust the gain of Virtual Bassist ROWDY before sending it into subsequent audio processors or effect devices.

MIDI Learn

Using MIDI Learn, you can assign any Virtual Bassist ROWDY control to hardware controls of MIDI keyboards or other controllers.

To assign a control, you usually right-click or ctrl-click a control in Virtual Bassist ROWDY to open the MIDI Learn context menu of your DAW.

Automation

All controls in Virtual Bassist ROWDY can be automated. In combination with the phrase select keys this is actually a very powerful way of creating more dynamic performances. For example, automate POSITION and DRIVE with faders to create dynamic transitions, or switch-automate AMP or Doubling to drastically change the sound between song parts.
