Past To Future Samples has announced its new Kontakt instrument library Klira Vintage Violin Bass, its best and most detailed bass made so far.

The instrument library features multiple round-robins and articulations, with 30 alternative samples per note/key.

If you like THE Beatles-Bass sound, this Bass is the right choice! We used our vintage RFT 4053 Tube Mic-Pre/DI from the 60s to capture this amazing bass This Bass goes actually beyond the Hofner sound due to its special Toaster Pick-Ups that have more attack and clarity so you can hear this bass also in small speakers!

The Klira company was a German manufacturer of stringed instruments from 1887 to around 1982. In the 1960s, Klira was one of the leading German guitar manufacturers alongside its competitors. To a lesser extent, Klira also produced electric basses, mostly copies of the model 500/1, also known as the Beatles Bass. In the sixties, Klira was able to record its greatest sales successes due to the increased demand for electric basses and the expansion of the export business.

So we recorded this “gem of a bass” and cleverly scripted it into a perfect bass library.

The library is available for the full version of Kontakt 5.4.3 or higher, priced $15 USD.
