Looks great! How would this one compete with the well-proven ABP in a rock/metal context? The uploaded audio samples seem to place this library more in a soul/jazz direction.

I tried the demo and compared its sound to the ABP.

The ABY has a little bit more grit than the ABP and I really like the included effect pedal board - would be nice to see this included in future updates of Ample's existing products, too.

Thanks we will update all of Ample Bass and add an important new module for them.

The Sound and price of Jazz, Precision, Stingray and Yinyang are different.

Precision: Neck pickup, Classic Rock, Blues. (Fender Select Precision - $2200)
Jazz: Both pickups, Rock, Pop. (Fender Jazz John English Masterbuilt - No price normally above $7000)
Stingray: Bridge pickup, Metal. (Musicman Stingray 5 Classic - $2100)
Yinyang: Both pickups, Fusion, Funky. (Fodera Yinyang - $5050)

Yinyang sound is similar with Jazz (the same pickups) but more modern and bright. that is not a good idea that using ABY in Rock :)

Yes, I still like ABP best for rock/metal. Its deep, round and unobtrusive sound suits my mixes really well. Of all the electric bass libraries I tried this is by far my favourite.

Still hoping for a pick extension... ;-)

Wow..phenomenal release :)

Just wondering are we able to select pickups and adjust the tone of the bass to our liking like a real bass or we can only work with the current tone? Also, are the Pope 3-Band Standard Preamp from the bass included?

Will be great if the selective pickups and the 3 band preamps can be add-ons for future Ample Sound bass products/updates.

Thanks and Cheers

Thanks for asking,

1. "N+B" pickup only, can not select pickups. but you can switch between Active and Passive pickup modes.

2. No there are not 3 band pre-EQ, but there is a 5 band EQ available.

This bass is fantastic..my little doodle @ https://soundcloud.com/davidgary73/aby- ... jam-mockup

Btw, any consideration of making an extension of the neck and bridge pickup? They sound really good and offer more tone choices :)

Thank you.

So, any consideration of making an extension of the neck and bridge pickup? They definitely offer more tone choices.
