Jayzen Sound releases the Carvin Electric Bass - Virtual Instrument in GigaStudio format 07/03/08
Jayzen Sound tell us that they have released their Carvin Electric Bass sample library in GigaStudio format.
This large-format library is modelled after the Carvin "Bunny Brunel" Electric Bass. It uses full-length individual note samples, has tonal patches to emulate Open, 5th, or 10th playing positions, includes a patch of chromatically mapped open string harmonics and also, according to Jayzen Sound, throws in some amazing special effects that you won't find in any other bass library. The company say that it excels at creating authentic Jazz/Pop Bass lines and offers a wide selection of tones for composition and sound design.
Complete range of 5-string electric bass notes.
10 instrument patches using the Rhythm pick-up, and 10 more using the Lead.
Patches designed according to natural playing positions.
Separate patches for creating natural-sounding slides.
Full patch of chromatic string octave harmonics.
Bonus patch of interesting special effects and unusual string noises.
Compatible with Tascam GigaStudio (version 2 or greater), and other software samplers capable of importing ".gig" format files.
Also available are "light" versions of the same Bass, designed in the Soundfont format for wide compatibility with almost all samplers. The Deep Bass 2 Soundfont gives a full 2 octave sampling of the lowest B-string, great for Acid Jazz styles and general sound design use, and the Electric Bass 2 Soundfont gives a single patch of matching picked notes and string harmonics for use in modern composition work.
