Here’s the lowdown in Soniccouture’s own words:
Complete Bass Solution for your DAW
A One-Stop Bass shop - Electrics, Upright, Effects Drones, Dub basses, Dry snappy synths, massive snarling filter sweeps, evil distorted groans and moans - all in one package. Every type of Bass sound is covered in the Library, making it incredibly simple to load up the exact bass you need in seconds - or scroll through instruments to try out lots of different basses in your track.
A huge range of Bass Timbres
Soniccouture have put their expert sampling skills to work recording detailed multi-sampled 24-bit waveforms from a vast array of classic Bass instruments. This gives Abstrakt Bass a unique sonic breadth unobtainable from any conventional synth - from fat vintage analogue waveforms, complex, heavy FM synthesis, Studio-recorded Electric Bass Guitars and amps right through to completely new creations from the cutting edge of sound design.
Full Sampling and Synthesis Control
Each of the 140 Kontakt instruments offers a huge range of control over the sound. Each instrument is a mini-synthesizer in itself! 8 control knobs are instantly accessible in the rack view of Kontakt, allowing you to simply tweak the attack time or filter cutoff, or to completely re-shape the entire sound.
VARI-AMP Sampling
The Electric Bass Guitars included in Abstrakt : Bass feature a unique edge - the ability to mix the original amp and D.I. signals to suit your track. Each note of the guitar is represented by 3 24-bit samples: D.I., Close Mic ( AKG D112 ) and Distant Mic ( Rode K2 ). This gives you complete control over the natural studio sound of the bass and the amp.
