A Huge Range of Bass Timbres
Soniccouture have put their expert sampling skills to work recording detailed, multi-sampled 24-bit waveforms from a vast array of classic bass instruments.
This gives Abstrakt Bass a unique sonic breadth unobtainable from any conventional synth – from fat vintage analogue waveforms, complex, heavy FM synthesis, studio-recorded electric bass guitars and amps right through to completely new creations from the cutting edge of sound design.
Full Sampling and Synthesis Control:
Each of the 140 Kontakt instruments offers a huge range of control over the sound. Each instrument is a mini-synthesizer in itself! 8 control knobs are instantly accessible in the rack view of Kontakt, allowing you to simply tweak the attack time or filter cutoff, or to completely re-shape the entire sound.
The electric bass guitars included in Abstrakt : Bass feature a unique edge – the ability to mix the original amp and D.I. signals to suit your track. Each note of the guitar is represented by three 24-bit samples: D.I., Close Mic ( AKG D112 ) and Distant Mic ( Rode K2 ). This gives you complete control over the natural studio sound of the bass and the amp.
