Useful software for bass players

Not really bass specific though...

There's a free and paid version. I think the paid one has more comping styles and the automatic "random" generator.

Andy, I use EZdrummer which is around £80 and is usually packaged as a bundle with an extra drum kit (check dv247.com). It comes with pop/rock drums (the default, sounds pretty decent) and a cocktail kit (not all that great). I got the one with the two funk drumkits. You get a good selection of midi loops with it and it can accept any other midi drum tracks. I got some from Groove Monkee for $20 - $30 a pack (but Google for some vouchers or sign up for their newsletter for discount codes, I think june20 is their latest, giving 20% off). They do a sample pack of free loops from all their ranges too: http://www.groovemon...om/en/free-midi.
The drums on my track here were done in EZdrummer: http://basschat.co.u...howtopic=134193.
I use it on a Mac within GarageBand and haven't had any problems. Just shout if you want to know more about it...
Here's a link to it on DV247. They have the funkmasters one plus Drumkit From Hell which is more suited to rock/metal: http://www.dv247.com/search/0/0/ProductQua...ng/ezdrummer/1/

The guitar pro tabs app, which is about £1.99 and they have an upgrade to read guitar pro tabs for $4.99, dunno what that is in £s
and for recording on the fly; Four Track Pro, litterally lets you record up to 4 tracks on the go when you may be in a rehesal room or at a mates house jamming and dont have anything else spare. This is free if you upgrade it has limited editing options and a metronome.
Jam Box- is pretty much a scale and chord library. in the free version it has guitar positions but if you upgrade it has 5&4 string bass positions. (not sure about 6).

I don't have anything on my phone, as it's old and wretched. For everything else I use 'Basschat'.

I can adjust the pitch in semitones to what we play the song in. Does tempo too.
I'm a software numpty so I'm sure there's better and for nothing.

My original post mentioned that the Amazing Slow Downer has an EQ section which allows you to drop out pretty much all of the bass.

On Macs, Capo, which was mentioned earlier, has the same facility, with presets for taking out male and female vocals and to isolate the bass (though you'd have to dial in removing the bass by hand).
It also has a handy frequency analyser which works out the chords and shows you which notes are being played on a keyboard scale - making it much easier to work out a bass line.
Edit: I've recently discovered that Capo allows you to make microtonal adjustments to the pitch of playback (to 1/100 of a semitone)
Vox seems to have gone rapidly downhill with recent versions. Lots of complaints of instability, the awfulness of UI changes and an attempt to bring in a software rental pricing model.

PS... I think it works on Android phones as well, not just iPod.
It runs on my macbook pro too. Happy days!

Whenever iTunes goes to the next song, it will find the tab for the new song automatically.
