Six Strings Of Bass


Puremagnetik has released Big Bertha for Ableton Live, Kontakt and Logic. Big Bertha is a custom built 6-string Maillet electric bass that Puremagnetik say has a classic, deep and funky tone. Recorded through both a Jensen transformer and an original tube buffered AMB DI, Big Bertha includes detailed multilayer velocity sampling of every note across 3 octaves and a collection of over 60 looped clips played in various styles and tempos. The loop library includes funk, rock, RnB, fusion and many other stylings.
The Ableton Live version of Big Bertha comes packaged in Ableton's proprietary multisample mode so that any Live user can take advantage of these high quality multisamples. Both FingerBass and SlapnPop programs come loaded with amplifier effects and 16 advanced Macro mappings for easy editing right out of the box.
The Kontakt version of Big Bertha comes loaded with effects and a custom KSP GUI for instant tweaking. The included audio loop library contains over 60 raw looped waveforms that load instantly into Kontakt or a DAW of your choice.
