Kurzweil DCDBG overview

  • 1Description

The Bass Gallery CD-ROM for Kurzweil V.A.S.T. Series Instruments by Kurzweil features over 600 MB of incredible bass samples, taken from 17 different basses. The CD-ROM includes both electric and acoustic basses. All the basses have been sampled with a variety of different articulations, depending on the type of bass, including Finger, Pick, and Slap. In addition, there are many extras, including hammer-ons, ghost notes, harmonics, pulls, slides, and double-stops.

In addition to the tons of outstanding samples, soundware engineers have created a wide variety of programs, using the capabilities of V.A.S.T. to provide programs which feature powerful real-time control, a wide variety of timbres, and many unusual sounds. The Bass Gallery makes use of the Macro feature in the K2 Series. Macros are small files which automate loading of other files. This allows Kurzweil to offer files in a variety of sizes. You can then choose a file based on how much sample RAM is available. All basses and all articulations are offered in at least 3 different load sizes. This gives you great flexibility when you have limited RAM space but still want a specific bass sound.

The CD is compatible with any version of the K2600, K2661, K2500, or the K2vx. For the K2000, v3 or later is required. Having PRAM and 32 MB of sample RAM is recommended for flexibility when using the CD.

Washburn AB20 Acoustic Bass Guitar
Something of a cross between an electric bass and an acoustic guitar, this bass lends itself particularly well to the unplugged sound. It has pronounced low mids with a slight midrange dip.
Alembic Series I
This bass was at the forefront of the state-of -the-art revolution in bass guitar making. It has a balanced sound with a punchy attack, crisp highs, and emphasized lows. The Alembic is well suited to a variety of musical styles.
Guild Ashbory
Dubbed the "rubber band bass," the Guild Ashbory is a short-scale bass with silicon rubber strings and a piezoelectric pickup. The sound is described as something between an upright and an electric bass. The Ashbory can be used on a folk or jazz track. Its unusual timbre also can be used to create very interesting synth or hybrid sounds.
BC Rich Eagle Fretless Bass
BC Rich guitars are noted for their intricate electronics and exotic woods. The Eagle features the signature midrange growl which defines the sound that most listeners associate with the fretless bass guitar. This bass is very useful in an ambient, pop, or world music setting.
Custom Fretless Bass
This no-name bass was custom built for its owner. It has a flatter midrange than the BC Rich Eagle, and works well in a jazz, pop, or world music setting.
Guild Pilot 5-String Bass
The fingered articulation has a low end emphasis with flat mids and highs. The slap articulation has a very strongly percussive attack with rapidly decaying sustain envelope.
1963 Fender Jazz Bass
The Jazz bass has been a staple for bassists across countless musical genres. Its warm tone with contoured mids has been heard on countless jazz, rock, pop, funk, world, punk, and reggae recordings. This venerable bass is favored by such greats as Jaco Pastorius, John Paul Jones, Noel Redding, and Marcus Miller. It works well in almost any musical setting.
Jerry Jones Longhorn
A reissue of the famous Danelectro Longhorn bass, the Jerry Jones has a very pronounced high end, and produces an almost guitar-like tone, especially when played with a pick. It is good for surf, punk, or rockabilly applications. It also functions quite well in a country music setting, and can be used to effectively emulate the sound of a baritone guitar.
Customized 1977 Fender Jazz Bass Played by Marcus Miller
Famed session bassist Marcus Miller has played on countless jazz, rock, and R&B recordings. Marcus' highly customized Fender Jazz bass with its tight, focused lows, crisp highs, and contoured mids has become an integral part of his sound. The Marcus Miller Jazz Bass is a good addition to almost any track, especially funk, fusion, soul, and modern R&B.
1965 Fender Precision Bass
The Fender P-Bass has earned its reputation as a workhorse, and is considered by many to be the rock and roll bass. Staying true to the classic '60s Fender Precision sound, this has a '65 P fitted with flat wound strings through a Fender Bassman tube amp to capture its characteristic raw, rumbling low end.
1979 Fender Precision Bass
There are 2 versions of this bass included on the CD. The first was played through an Ampeg SVT tube amp. The Fender Precision-SVT combination is highly prized by rock, R&B, and blues bassists for its tube-driven, aggressive tone with boosted mids. This is the bass sound heard on countless, rock, disco, punk, new wave, R&B, and pop records from the late '70s and early '80s. There is also a direct-to-tape version of this. Recorded using an Alembic F2-B tube preamp, the character of this recording is more subdued, with sharp highs and pronounced lows.
M.V. Pedulla MVP 5-String Bass
Pedulla has a reputation for producing contemporary, state-of-the-art basses. The MVP, with its high-quality materials and electronics, provides a modern sound with emphasized lows and upper mids. This instrument is useful in the context of contemporary jazz, Latin, and pop settings.
Guild Pilot 5-String Bass
The fingered articulation has a low-end emphasis with flat mid and highs. The slap articulation has a very strongly percussive attack with a rapidly decaying sustain envelope.
Rickenbacker 4001
This is the bass made famous by Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, and Paul McCartney. Along with the Fender bass, the 4001 has established itself as an instrument of choice among rock bassists. Also recorded as played through an Ampeg SVT, the Ric features a distinctive, overdriven sound with sharp upper mids and a strong attack.
Ken Smith BT 5-String Bass
The Smith, a high-end, hand-made bass, is similar to the Pedulla in its contemporary character, but has more distinct highs and throatier mids. This bass is suitable for contemporary styles of soul, jazz, Latin, and pop.
Steinberger XL-2D
The Steinberger bass was first introduced in 1979. Innovative in their one-piece carbon-graphite composite design, Steinbergers are recognized for their stable, even tone with clear highs and consistent mids.
1890s Tyrolean 3/4-Size Upright Bass
This German-made bass was sampled in stereo in order to preserve the subtleties of the instrument, as well as to capture the character of the room it was recorded in. Its open, ambient qualities and rich low end make it suitable for any jazz, blues, or country track.
