Default Auto Bass VST?

Hi,
Does anyone know of an auto bass vst? (Free will be good (smiley face) )

What I want to do is to be able to play a chord live on the keyboard (or guitar) and a bass note will be generated? Is that possible?

Cheers
Andy

Er - really?

If you are playing a chord, you already have the bass note, just not played on a bass instrument.

Easiest thing would be to play/record your chord sequence then open another MIDI track next to it & copy the bass notes into that.
Then add a bass virtual instrument.

There are a bunch of free ones & I used to use AmpleBass LE. Then I got EZBass and have not looked back.

Heh... I am getting more work doing bass tracks these days than I ever expected to.

Put yourself out there a bit more!

I`m lucky enough to have a lot of fdriends out there in the music world. They have also been helping me out musically during lockdown.

O.T. - A general "thanks" to any of you who have contributed to my stuff, but especially Joe Funderburk in Nashville. Great mixes at reasonable prices from a real pro.

Was thinking of the feature in keyboards were it does running bass feature as you play along.
Must be a vst that does that too.

Are you thinking of an arpeggiator?

thanks, but I'm already in three all original bands, all about to record yikes!

it's hard for me because the three bands are different from each other,but the same rhythm section. Trying to write different styled basslines for the three is becoming harder. It's hard to come up with the variety of styles needed,I'm sounding too much like myself hehe

Baz: Don`t worry about sounding like you. That is generally how you develop character to your playing. If you are doing mostly covers, yes you need to be able to do pretty much what was on the record, but half the fun of recording new tiunes is that YOU get to set the mould.

O.P. You might want to look at Toontrack`s EZBass. It is capable of generating bass lines to go along with your chord streucture and your drum patterns, but has a relatively steep learning curve if you want to make use of all its capabilities.
Some great sounds in there though.

This seems like a good overview of EZBass:
