The Steinberg VB-1 Virtual Bassist plug-in came installed with Cubase SX when I was running that software, so the installation process was as easy as installing the sequencer software. Since both were made by the same company, I had no compatibly problems and since installing the software have never had any issues with it at all. The interface of the plug-in is pretty easy to follow as it only has a few different parameters - one for shape, one for damper, and one for overall volume. It also has a wide variety of presets that really come in handy when you are trying to pick the perfect sound. I've never seen the manual for this plug-in, so I can't speak to how helpful it is or not when trying to learn this software.
While I have since upgraded my system to Pro Tools LE and no longer run this plug-in or Cubase SX, when I did I ran it on a Hewlett Packard lap top that had a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. While I didn't use this plug-in everyday, when I did I never had any problems at all running it. I would really only run one at a time and I believe that most will be doing the same, but I can't say how well it would run if you wanted to run a lot of them at once, but I'm not sure why anyone would want to do that anyway.
I've been using the Steinberg VB-1 Virtual Bassist plug-in for about four or five years and while I no longer have the proper software to run it with, it definitely served me well when I was using it. Since it came with Cubase SX for me, the price was virtually free and I know it is pretty cheap even if you buy it on the side. The sounds on the Steinberg VB-1 Virtual Bassist plug-in are pretty good and work great when you want to put down a MIDI based bass track. If you are looking for a nice and easy to use plug-in that will give you a wide array of different bass guitar sounds, the Steinberg VB-1 is worth a try.

No need to install Cubase, it is incorporated by dja cons, on the other squenceur just add the dll .. no problem
there is no manual, and there are only three buttons to adjust (it's easy)
I possde an Intel Celeron 2.8 GHz with 1.5 GB of RAM, it runs nickel, and never plant (but nothing is impossible)
I was 6 I use, there is a way to have a (standard) pretty cool, which can help in many components, but must not do in the pro, because one or two apart is rglage Well, the rest is dgueux and you can hear the fast lctronique
I try to vai aqurir of other models as bmk2 trilogy or to compare
basically, you good little app, which if it is properly set allows for the standart one more or less correct
do it again if I choose ... ben .. as it is free yes, because adpanne, but not for professional registration (unless we take just the low to support a rhythm (such as small group of shit))
