Impact Soundworks Shreddage Bass Picked Edition KONTAKT | 1.09 Gb
A pure, powerful bass guitar library suitable for floor-crumbling, core-shaking and mammoth riding. Features a killer, flexible DI tone straight from a Music Man Sterling that is perfect for rock and metal, as well as jazz, disco, electronica or even pop.
As with the original Shreddage library, we opted to record everything clean (DI) to allow the user maximum tone-crafting flexibility. Any multitude of amp and cabinet simulators can be used to great effect, but the samples also sound excellent with no processing, which was a central design goal. Our experience with many bass libraries was that they tended to be difficult to place in a mix, so we wanted our instrument to simply sit well with minimal (if any) EQ and processing.
This flexibility in tone allows you to use Shreddage Bass: Picked Edition for a variety of genres and styles. As you can hear in our demos, the library is quite capable of realistic and powerful rock and metal basslines. However, it is also exceptional for funk, jazz, disco, electronica, pop and more.
As with all of our sample libraries, a thorough set of articulations, round robins (RRs) and velocity layers are included. In this case, we have 8x RRs (4x down and 4x up strokes), 3x velocity layers, open and muted notes, staccato notes, neck slides and true hammer-on and pull-off samples with an accompanying script.
The next design goal was to make the instrument highly playable and intuitive. The modwheel, sustain pedal and other MIDI CCs are not required. There are no keyswitches. We believe that this kind of usability is vital for any composer!
