Description: Full mixing channel strip for your bass.
HoRNet L3012 is a channel band plugin designed for bass guitarists and containing all the instruments needed for good bass sound.
The plugin is the result of a collaboration between HoRNet Plugins and Lusi, an Italian bass player, and is designed to provide you with the tools you need to process bass both in the studio and live.
The HoRNet L3012 contains an analog tube preamp section that can be overloaded to add graininess to your sound, followed by a soft “bass amplification” circuit and a transient shaper that make the attack and peaks of your bass great. Then you get high and low pass filters, a shelf filter, and a parametric mid band to capture resonances and form your sound, the last stage is a compressor modeled after the famous VCA compressor often used for bass.
HoRNet L3012 is a very lightweight and versatile plugin that provides the highest sound quality with analog modeling technology in every part of the processing chain, for this reason inside it uses what we call “intelligent oversampling”, allowing the plugin to select the amount of oversampling (up to 4x) depending on the sample rate of your DAW settings.
The GUI is completely rendered using vector graphics and has hardware acceleration, so it looks good at any screen resolution and does not increase the cpu load.
We’ve also included two presets developed by Lusi to show you how this plugin can be used with the two most popular bass models (you’ll guess which ones by the preset name), so just make sure you click on the yellow part of the input meter and you’re done.
Tube preamp overdrive with dry / wet control
Adjustable high pass and low pass filter
Three band equalizer with one fully parametric band
Compressor that uses the VCA160 model from Multicomp Plus MK2
