Ilya Efimov has announced the release of Modern Bass, a 5-string bass guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
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.
