Waves Bass Slapper Plug-In Waves Audio is now shipping the Bass Slapper plug-in. This plug-in lets users recreate, on their key- board, the realistic nuances of a seasoned slap bass player, with full control of each note and articulation, including thumbing, popping, hammer-ons, pull- offs, open strings, and dead notes. The Waves Bass Slapper includes an extensive sample library of special bass guitar sounds, includ- ing slides, mutes, and harmonic strums. It also offers intuitive position and articulation controls that let users determine precisely where to play on the fret- board, which strings to thumb or pop, when to play legato or staccato, and more.
