    One great plug-in!

    This is a plug-in that is amazingly easy to use and does a great job. As soon as I bought it, I grabbed a bass, recorded a quick track, and put this bad boy on it. As other reviews have mentioned, it really does make a bass track sound smoother and fuller, but in a very natural way. I'm usually pretty critical of plug-ins because so many of them seem to be over-hyped. Even after extensive use, they never seem to quite deliver what is promised. This one does not fit in that category. I'm quite confident that Bass Rider will end up on all my bass mixes going forward.

    As always, my gratitude goes out to Jack Pepper (my sales engineer), and Sweetwater for such great service.

    Bass Rider ROCKS!

    I found the bass rider to provide the smooth ride or float sitting just right in the mixes. Even after compression the Rider provided an extra layer of smoothness that was not there before. There was no need to do anything else with the bass tracks.

    Waves Bass Rider!

    Bass Rider is a very impressive plug-in. Produces an entirely different sonic result than using a compressor alone. To my ears, the bass track sounds fuller and richer (with greater dynamics) - all while keeping the level consistent.

    A must have!

    I am impressed with Bass Rider! If you have used Vocal Rider before then you know the difference it can make on your mix. Bass Rider keeps the bass right in the pocket and smoothes it out like nothing else. Now the bass guitar is silky smooth, you never lose a note and the best of all the dynamics are not affected. Very pleased with this buy and would buy it again.

    Just as easy as Vocal Rider

    If you have vocal rider, then this is exactly the same! If you don't then I suggest you get them both! Just set the "no higher - no lower" bass/ vocal level and this plug in will maintain it throughout you track! With some added extras, this software is a quick shortcut to a steady bass/vocal volume level!
