Ample Sound releases Ample Bass J plugin

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Ample Sound has launched Ample Bass J, a new electric bass instrument plug-in modeled on a Jazz Bass guitar, hand-crafted by renowned Fender Master Builder, John English (1950-2007).

Ample Sound Ample Bass J (ABJ)

It sounds wide and deep. It is imbued with both modern taste and Fender’s traditional characteristics. Ample Sound used their techniques on every possible procedure: recording, editing, programming etc., trying only to deliver every detail of the original sound and vibration of this master built bass to the users.

ABJ has a 3.71 GB sample library which is naturally recorded on every single fret. No destructive editing and dynamic processing are applied (which leaves more room for users’ modification).

Ample Bass features 14 bass articulations: Sustain, Palm Mute, Natural Harmonic, Hammer On & Pull Off, Legato Slide, Slide in & out, Pop, Slap, Tap, Accentuated, Staccato and Dead Note. The Legato articulations can be used to achieve legato notes of any duration, pitch and polyphony.

Ample Bass J features

  • Redesigned Tab Player for bass tab. All articulations and notations are supported by the tab player. Realistic Tab playback can be achieved through fine parameter adjustments and humanizations.
  • Auto Buzz System. Buzz noises can make bass performance more expressive and realistic. Ample Bass buzz system enables users to arbitrarily control of start position, duration and amplitude of a buzz. Alternatively, Ample Bass could also randomize the whole buzz sound process.
  • Groovy Single-Note Bassline. Repetitive one-note basslines are a common technique in bass performance, particularly in the rock genre. Ample Bass contains a unique method of delivering one-note bass lines, One-note loops have been recorded for every fret with a groovy, tasty feel and lossless quality as the tempo is changed. No more bland and robotic ‘machine gun effect’.
  • Slap & Sustain in one MIDI Track. Using keyswitches, users can switch between Sustain (normal group) and Slap and Pop on the fly. Ample Bass also provides a “combined keyswitches” feature, which allows users to play both Slap and Pop articulations on specific strings. For example, you could assign the Slap articulation to the G and D strings, and the Pop articulation to the A and E strings.
  • Alternate Tuning. Ample Bass supports alternate tunings to the lowest note of a 5-string bass.
  • Carefully designed left hand techniques and sample groups.
  • Legato with variable duration, pitch and polyphony.

Ample Bass J for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $95 USD until December 12th, 2014 (regular $119 USD).

Ample Sound updates AGL, AGM & AGT to v1.5 + Winter Sale

Related: , , , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 26, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Ample Sound has released version 1.5 of AGL, AGM and AGT, featurinng a new built-in Tablature Player Panel.

Ample Sound plugins with Tablature Player

The Tab Player can load and play several prevalent guitar tablature file formats. Users can load, display and playback any specific track inside a tablature file. When used in DAWs, the Tab Player also allows users to export the tablature as an audio file.

The Tab Player supports all the fingering, looping, chords, techniques and other markers in the loaded tablature. Supported techniques include: Strum, Natural Harmonic, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On/Pull Off, Trill, Bend, Tremolo Bar, Legato Slide, Slide In, Slide Out, Vibrato, Tremolo Picking, Palm Mute, Popping, Tapping, Let Ring, Staccato, Dead Note, Grace Note, Ghost Note, Accentuated Note, Fade In, etc.

As a built-in function, the Tab Player works seamlessly with the Ample Guitar instrument engine, which has extremely customized guitar playing logic so as to model a real world guitar being played. The Tab Player can even judge on its own to automatically add some refining techniques when it thinks it is appropriate, such as slapping on strings or body, or other realistic and indispensable noises.

Strumming is an important factor of guitar playing. By taking advantage of the Ample Guitar Strummer engine, the Tab Player can not only mingle different techniques into strumming, but can also alternate between strumming several strings (i.e. multiple notes) simultaneously and strum at a particular string (i.e. one note).

The Tab Player currently supports GP3, GP4 and GP5. More tablature formats will be supported in the future. The Tab Player is now available in the latest version of AGM, AGT and AGL (i.e. the acoustic Ample Guitars). The electric Ample Guitars (AGF, AGG and AGP) will include this function in near future.

Other changes in AGL AGM AGT v1.5.0 / AGF AGG AGP v1.3.8

  • Fixed a bug when MIDI events are not properly handled according to their timestamps, which could cause some malfunctions on MIDI event timing, especially when used at large buffer size.
  • Updated the tuning presets for AGF and AGG.
  • Fixed a bug that AGF, AGG and AGP could crash on a particular sample on Mac.
  • Updated the Ample Sound Standalone to use the last-time-used audio device on every start; added a keyboard (space key) control to turn on/off the Tab Player.

The updates are free of charge for existing Ample Guitar users.

Ample Sound has also announced a Winter Sale promotion, offering a 20% discount on all its products until January 1st, 2014.
