Time+Space has announced the release of Sam Spacey Epica Bass, a new analog bass synthesizer instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Sam Spacey Epica Bass

Sam Spacey the producer behind the multi award-winning Epica, presents Epica Bass – a dedicated analog bass synth library obsessively sampled from Sam´s extensive and personal collection of all-star classic analog synths and modulars.

From the vintage Neve preamp and the UBK Fatso hardware to the boutique guitar distortion pedals and Kush Audio Elektra EQ’s, the gear involved in the making of this Kontakt instrument ensures that Epica Bass sits perfectly in the mix without the need to pile on plugins.

Comprising 430 epic instruments built from 26,657 24bit mono samples, the majority of presets have every single note sampled with up to 6 round robins per note ensuring that the full character of these classic synthesisers has been captured as faithfully as possible.
