Ample Sound releases Ample Bass P (ABP)

Ample Sound has announced the release of Ample Bass P (ABP), an electric bass instrument based on samples of a Fender Precision Bass.

Ample Sound Ample Bass P

Ample Sound is dedicated to reproducing the exact sound of classic instruments in virtual instrument software with accuracy and pristine clarity.

ABP has a 3.6 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 P 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.

The Ample Bass P for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until September 4th, 2014 (regular $119 USD). Existing users of Ample Sound instruments can check for eligible discounts in their MyAmpleSound account.

Acustica Audio releases new Red Eq equalizer

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 31, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Acustica Audio has launched the new Red Eq, a free equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Acustica Audio Red Eq

Red Eq is a free equalizer which provides three fixed bands at 80Hz, 1.8kHz and 8kHz, the upper and lower bands being shelving while the middle has a traditional bell response.

There’s an ample 16dB of cut and boost, and though the EQ may look limited compared to a parametric, it actually sounds nicely musical and the frequencies have been chosen with care. A five-section led level meter and an output gain knob allow you to control the overall output level from the unit up to a maximum of +6dB. A red warning lamp lights if the signal approaches clipping, due to excessive use of boost on already hot signals. It can be used to make adjustments in the most needed areas of the audio spectrum without the sound losing its focus.

Red Eq features

  • Mac OS X: VST 32/64-bit, AU 32-bit.
  • Windows: VST 32/64-bit.
  • New CORE5 engine (improved performances).
  • Delay time significantly reduced.
  • New installer.
  • Faster loading and less dropouts.

The plug-in is a free download (requires registration, also free).
