  4. I'm with Andrew on this one. there really is no good fretless simulator...how much were you expecting to spend on a simulator? here is an essex for $120. For an almost convincing fretless sim, you'd maybe want a Zoom bfx-708 which costs about 150, so this is even cheaper!

    i think you'd be much happier with just a fretless bass anyhow. you can do slides and all that fun fretless stuff...trust TB we know what we are talking about!

    You could always try simulating one by hand - add some midrange and try bending into notes from below. A bit of chorus and or compression will help too.

    Most of the fretless simulators I've heard have just compressed the Hell ouf ot the attack to make it smoother and cut loads if treble.

    And I tried the Variaz which was a real disappointment.
