Ilya Efimov releases Retro Bass for Kontakt

Ilya Efimov Retro Bass

Ilya Efimov has released Retro Bass, a virtual Fender Bass Guitar ’52 instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The playing techniques included in a single patch – fingered, slap, palm-mute and additional articulations – allow the user to edit their MIDI data or play in real-time.

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 are designed to make it easy to play realistic ostinato bass-lines. FX glissando will add to the realism of 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.

Orange Tree Samples releases Evolution Electric Bass – Rick

Orange Tree Samples EEB Rick

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of Evolution Electric Bass – Rick, a deeply-sampled electric bass guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

At its core, Evolution Electric Bass – Rick consists of extensive samples complemented by a powerful script. These two facets work in unison to give you ultra-realistic bass sounds with minimal effort.

Evolution Electric Bass – Rick has chromatic samples for each string, meaning that each fret was individually sampled. It has 32x round-robin and three morphing velocity layers for a smooth dynamic range. It has time-dependent release samples (15 different release times sampled) as well as time-dependent legato samples. The legato samples consist of hammer-ons and pull-off articulations sampled chromatically up to a minor 3rd upward and a minor 3rd downward as well as chromatic half-step slides. These legato samples were sampled at up to eight different transition times. We also sampled muted notes (8x round-robin), pre-roll samples (32x round-robin), muted slap samples (8x round-robin, 8 velocities), as well as slap releases (4x round-robin). The slap releases were sampled chromatically on each string, so they are specific release transitions from a sustained note.

We spent a lot of time making the interface and engine as flexible and customizable as possible, without forsaking instant playability. Essentially, we put you in complete control over how the mapping, tone, and other settings work, but have everything set to defaults that make it easy to load and start playing with minimal tweaking.

By emphasizing realism and playability, we’re confident that playing Evolution Electric Bass – Rick will give you the same excitement and inspiration as playing a real bass guitar.

Evolution Electric Bass – Rick features

  • Over 7 GB of samples (4.7 GB using Kontakt’s NCW lossless compressed format).
  • 32x round-robin, 3 morphing velocity layers, chromatically sampled.
  • Advanced scripting with legato articulations, slides, and much more.
  • Onboard amp/cab modeling, compressor, EQ, and chorus effects.
  • Internal factory presets as well as external preset system for easy sharing of presets.

The sample library is available for the introductory price of $79 USD until July 31st, 2013 (20% off regular $99 USD).
