Native Instruments introduces production-ready bass sounds in a KORE-Powered software instrument 05/08/09
Native Instruments have introduced Essential Bass, a new KORE-Powered instrument that they say provides a
comprehensive arsenal of visceral, production-ready bass sounds at an
extremely favorable price. Here's all the details from the NI press release...
Based on the KORE PLAYER and its integrated
synthesis and sample engines, the instrument covers the full spectrum of
the bottom end, from classic acoustic and electric bass to vintage analog
sounds and innovative synthesizer tones.
Classic instruments in ESSENTIAL BASS include fingered, picked and
slapped electric basses from renowned sample producers Scarbee and
Pettinhouse, as well as an exclusive antique upright bass that was
sampled and recreated with painstaking precision. These instruments are
complemented with a large selection of inventive, ultra-modern bass
tones that take advantage of the integrated ABSYNTH, FM8, MASSIVE
and REAKTOR engines. A further section provides an inspiring range of
classic subtractive synth bass sounds that have been carefully sampled
from several iconic analog synthesizers.
ESSENTIAL BASS utilizes many advanced soundshaping features of the
KORE platform, and can be used both within the free KORE PLAYER and
with the full-featured KORE 2 system. Each of the 200 sounds includes
eight morphable variations as well as concise musical metadata for the
powerful KORE sound browser. Electric basses come to life with
sophisticated articulations based on the integrated KONTAKT engine for
completely authentic results, while synthesizer sounds benefit from
specific bass features like legato, glide and an adjustable sub bass
function for additional subsonic impact. Pricing and Availability:
