Essential Bass announced
Native Instruments has released its newest instrument collection, Essential Bass, which provides a variety of bass sounds for producing music. The application includes fingered and slapped bass from the sound design house Scarbee, along with picked bass from Pettinhouse and upright bass tracks. The software utilizes ABSYNTH, FM8, MASSIVE, and REAKTOR engines to produce a large selection of bass-synthesized tones. Users can also choose from samples taken from Minimoog, Roland Juno-60 and Studio Electronics SE1 synths.
The package includes a total of 200 sounds, each of which include eight customizable variations that can be used with NI's KORE PLAYER or KORE 2. The synthesized bass tones also feature adjustable legato, glide and sub-bass parameters. Essential Bass is available from the Native Instruments online store for $80.
