Will the R 16 Make My Guitar Sound Like a Bass?

Post by GV » Thu May 30, 2019 12:57 pm

I do not have the R 16 handy right now, but did read a little of the manual online, and am confused about whether any of the Aco / Bass Algorithms will actually make an ordinary 6-string electric guitar sound like a bass (i.e., make the strings and notes sound like they are in a lower octave).

I would be grateful for any replies.

Thank you.

If it's like the R8 it does. And it does it pretty good too. Probably the best bass sim I've ever heard, but still not as a good as a real bass of course.
