Ilya Efimov Modern Bass

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.

Modern Bass features

  • 3.74 Gb ncw compression format.
  • 3941 samples, 24 bit, 44.1 KHz.
  • Up to 12 velocity layers, 21 frets on each string with round-robin algorithm.
  • FINGERED, SLAP and PALM-MUTE in one patch.
  • Different natural legato for FINGER, SLAP and PALM-MUTE articulations.
  • THUMB and POP slap articulation, with Auto and Manual selection.
  • Auto and Manual String and Position Selection.
  • Attack control.
  • Slide-up, Flageolets, X-notes (two modes for x-note performance).
  • Repetition keys for X-notes and last articulations.
  • Realistic glissando note-to-note.
  • Gliss-FX.
  • AMP cabinet and Bass tone effects.
  • Multiple FX and Noises (strokes, fret noises, releases).

The sample library is available to purchase for 129 EUR. Requires Kontakt +4.2.4 or Kontakt 5 full version.
