The Jayzen Acoustic Bass Virtual Instrument is available in Soundfont format 20/08/07
Jayzen Sound tell us that their Acoustic Bass is a sample library, in Soundfont format, that captures that â€˜old time soundâ€™ from a large, 1950's era stand-up acoustic bass. They say it is designed for musicians on a budget and can be used to recreate those Bass sounds heard on Country and Rock albums of the late 1950's, or for modern Acid Jazz inspired tunes.
Jayzen say that the main patch of this Virtual Instrument contains over 3 octaves of sampled Acoustic Bass notes and that the notes are accurately recorded, with lows that extend deep into the sub frequencies. All notes play out in full when held, (no sustain-looping was used).
There are also 3 bonus patches of slides and special effects. Two patches of slides (one where the notes slide upward shortly after being played, another where the notes slide downward) and a patch of special effects sounds â€“ string scrapes, string slaps, and various bridge hits.
