Embertone has released Leonid Bass, an upright bass instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Embertone Leonid Bass

LEONID BASS is a deeply-sampled adventure of an amazing upright bass (made in Italy in the 1700’s), played by the accomplished bassist Leonid Finkelshteyn. As the 4th release in the INTIMATE STRINGS series, Leonid Bass builds from the work from Friedlander Violin, Blakus Cello and Fischer Viola. We sampled Lenny with a depth and precision unparalleled in our company’s history, capturing more detail and articulation content than in past releases.

One of the most exciting things about this bass is how rich and clear the low range sounds! It manages not to get boomy and hazy down in the deepest range, but let’s not forget the stratosphere! Leonid Bass has an impressive high register, including a set of harmonics that you don’t want to miss. Have fun with this low-end monster!

Leonid Bass features

  • True legato programming + true Portamento’s + con Sordino + sul Ponticello + pizzicatos.
