WELCOME TO THE MODERN BASS
This library is a detailed emulation of a hi-end 5-string “studio custom” bass from the famous Canadian company F-Bass. We’d characterize its sound as the embodiment of a deep fundamental bass, coupled with excellent clarity. We recorded 12 dynamic layers for each fret of each string with different playing techniques and articulations.
The playing techniques in one patch: fingered, slap, palm-mute and additional articulations - allow you to conveniently and quickly edit your midi notation or play in real-time. We have minimized the use keyswitches, making the instrument simple and intuitive to use. A sophisticated algorithm to select strings in real time, automatically selects the natural bass guitar left-hand position on the fretboard. Manual string and position selection are also available.
The library’s repetition keys make it easy to play realistic ostinato bass-lines. FX glissando will allow you to introduce new musical “colors” to your bass guitar parts. Multiple legato types are changed automatically, depending on the first note played.
Included, are several Legato modes, Open String mode, Chord Detection mode and X-note mode; for the convenience of composers and arrangers!
Glissando articulation on a guitar is played quite often not only like an effect but first of all as melody ornaments. We have recorded all possible versions for each string starting from each fret within an octave range up and down the fretboard and in different tempo. You do not have to switch among glissando versions. The algorithm will do it for you when you wish.
