You aren't going to get the range of sounds of MODO but you could use the Scarbee basses (currently in the 50% off sale):

It can easily be a real substitute for lots of bass styles. The upright is really nice too as the note velocity controls the amount of fret buzz.

The Scarbee basses require Kontakt, but they do work with the free Kontakt Player.

One of the great things about MODO Bass is that it's modeled, not sampled. Much smaller. Loads faster.

Even if you don't use it for the final mix, it's great for development.

I have Modo Bass and all the Scarbee basses, but I usually find myself using the Ample YinYang Bass or the Ample Upright Bass. I prefer the Ample sound and controls.

Prominy Rock Bass 2 might be a candidate for rock/metal.
