Chris Hein Bass from Big Fish Audio features three bass instruments in various incarnations, sampled in detail and playable with extensive scripting via the Kontakt Player 2 engine. The instruments include a Musicman Stingray electric-bass picked and slapped, a LeFay fretless bass, and a upright bass with three different sets of strings - steel for a classic jazz sound, nylon-strings for high-fidelity sound, and gut for the old-school swing sound of the '40s.
The script programming in the playback engine allows for sound design that exceeds the possibilities of the real basses with all the nuances of bass playing implemented. The virtual instrument offers 112 MIDI controllable features including repetition-hot keys, keys-vibrato, fall-control, bridge/center playing, pickup micro-blending, expression-samples, pinch-harmonics, automatic-mode, slide-mode, chord-mode, and much more.
To complement the samples, the IK Multimedia Ampeg SVX Uno virtual bass-amp is included, adding even more sound possibilities to the natural bass instruments.
