We've combined the most common bass playing techniques--fingered, muted fingered, picked, muted picked, and slapped articulations--into a detailed, easy-to-use solution for virtual bass. We sampled the five-string bass all the way down to its low B string, giving you plenty of room in the low notes. The bass was sampled directly from its output jack (DI), giving you the freedom of applying your own EQ, compressor, and other effects. Even completely dry, the bass has a full, deep tone, and easily fits right into any mix.
Cherry Electric Bass has over 2.5 GB of samples (compressed via Kontakt's lossless NCW compression to 1.4 GB), powered by extensive scripting to maximize these samples, not only making the sample library ultra-realistic, but very playable and easy to sequence with. Whether you're sequencing the bass track note by note or performing it live from a MIDI keyboard, the combination of high quality samples and extensive scripting makes your bass track sound like a live bassist.
