It always “makes” the bass tone and glues it perfectly together with heavy guitars, so I’m incredibly happy to be able to use it anywhere I want in a mix and am beyond pleased with how accurately the plugin recreates the vibe of the physical units.”

To continuously edit such great quality tones on the fly without going through the hassle of reamping every bass track is a producer's dream".

Jay Maas

Ronnie Björnström

As a producer, engineer, and mixer, he’s worked with artists including MooseBlood, Senses Fail, LIMBS, ERRA, among others. “I’ve been a fan of the B7k for years. The only downside was having to physically patch it in on mixes. Enter Neural DSP and problem eliminated. This is by far the best bass processing plugin available. Even when checking mixes on small boombox speakers I still get that feeling of huge aggressive bass.”

John Maciel

Producer, Mixer, Engineer

“After using a multi-band distortion plugin to essentially recreate what the Darkglass B7K was doing. This plugin within minutes became a new go-to and standard for what Analog to Digital modeling will be. The second you put it on and move knobs you’ll say to yourself, “this is magic, no way it sounds this good”. But it does and will become a true classic just like the units they are modeled after. Other companies should be on the look-out for the new big kid on the block. Neural DSP nailed the tone and I can’t wait to see what else they’ve got up their sleeves.”
