Every electric bass guitar includes an Amp/DI balance knob which provides blending between phase-accurate samples of both direct bass signal and an amplified recording of the same take. With the ability to adjust the blend between the two sounds to desired tonality you can also re-amp the bass tone through your DAW by using just the DI (dry) sound.

A number of custom engines have been designed to contribute to the realism of the sound provided by the Vir2 BASiS. A breakthrough intelligent legato mode allows for real finger legato playing, and the engine automatically responds to the playing style to interpret a realistic legato whilst the adjustable pick noise, fret noise, and finger releases (the sound of the finger lifting off the string at the end of each note played) help recreate the basses completely authentically.

A Humanize engine further extends the realism by introducing slight velocity variations in each note played, avoiding the dreaded machine-gun effect whilst Fret noise is added by an artificial intelligence engine that watches for where the player is moving on the virtual fretboard.
