FROM 5-STRING BASS, TO VINTAGE ROCK BASS, TO THE BASS SOUND OF POP AND MODERN COUNTRY, THE BIG BASS BUNDLE HAS YOU COVERED
The Big Bass Bundle includes the 5-String Bass, Rock Bass, and Pop Bass samples for virtual instruments, at 20% off the price of buying the three packs individually. Each bass note for all three basses is sampled individually, with its pitch “flattened” during the decay (using Celemony Melodyne) to counteract the pitch changes that occur during a physical string’s decay. This prevents beat frequencies with other instruments, which otherwise would make the low end less solid and tight. The samples are not looped, but decay naturally.
These instruments don't use switched multisamples. Instead, to avoid the sometimes abrupt sound of sample-switching, filter and amplitude synth modules are velocity-sensitive. The end result is an organic, dynamic sound that responds like a synth bass, but has the rich, warm sound quality of an electric bass. What’s more, these samples are recorded without compression or EQ, to provide users with maximum flexibility for their own projects.
To avoid compatibility conflicts and file path issues, these samples load as programs into the free TX16Wx sampler by CWITEC—an excellent, flexible sampler with a very low CPU footprint. It supports Mac OSX 10.7 and above, 64-bit AU/VST2VST3/AAX; Windows 7 64-bit and above, VST2/VST3/AAX.
