Pfundstein Audio Plugins has announced the release of a virtual Basic Ken Taylor bass guitar instrument plugin authorized by Sandberg.

The Virtual Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor RW 4 is suitable for all genres, especially rock.

Sandberg is the second largest bass company in Germany, producing absolute top-quality instruments. Not only in Europe but in the entire world the instruments of this brand are known and loved by many bassists and guitarists.
A lot of effort has been put into making this plug-in sound “human-like”. Multiple velocity layers and round robins are running under the hood while the software itself stays simplistic and easy to use:

One of our [Pfundstein Audio Plugins] goals is to make it sound human-like. That’s why we offer up to four velocity groups and a round-robin size of up to eight samples all recorded in high resolution. Don’t worry if you don’t know what all of this means. Another aim of ours is to keep it simple for the user.

Our plug-in is made for easy usage so all the technical things stay under the hood. Just install the plug-in and start to play and record using a MIDI keyboard. Of course, for our advanced users, we offer key switches, automation parameters, and more options to get more out of the box. Yet we think it does not require a thousand knobs to sound good.
