Very interesting. But I’m wondering why not just get a bass and workout some arpeggios.



1) recording levels are too low

2) many many samples are played with fretnoise

3) sound lacks oomph, very digital sounding

4) sound volume levels not consistent between notes, some a bit too loud, some a bit too soft

5) demos seem not to be played with these samples

“many many samples are played with fretnoise”

Is that really a problem.
