Actually I think you'd be surprised. I should post a MIDI file or screenshot of the score to follow along for this latest demo, because it's really easy to use.
Hi Caleb and all
Even I know where you are coming from when you say that. Greg's Demo's really show off the full use of the library from someone who knows it well enough, and someone who knows how to play the keys very well. But, that said, I think that the rest of us "average" players will also be able to enjoy the ease of use of this Fretless Bass Sample Library. That was a key element in the development.
In the past it may have taken a lot of midi tricks to achieve this type of sound from samples. However, with the bends and vibrato of the fretless sampled and mapped in an easy to use way, you do not have to rely on knowing a lot about midi programming. Just simply play or punch in your notes for this set and a realistic sound is easy to achieve. I myself am amazed at how easy it is to achieve a realistic bass line with this set.
As Greg said, we do have a bunch of formats in the works for release. This includes the ManyTone Instruments (ManyBass, ManyGuitar, ManyOne and ManyStation) as well as Kontakt and Soundfont and WusikStation format.
Also this set will be our first Sample Library to release in the CakeWalk Dimension format. (which means the samples and mappings will also load into the SFZ VSTi).
It is larger than our present Bass Library add-ons in terms of samples and the amount of work put into it, so it will be higher priced than our current SampleSets. (Pricing and release date will be announced officially any day now)
We will be offering an intro special on the various formats to our ManyTone customers and all other interested folks, so keep your eyes on our forum and this thread. ManyTone customers - watch your emails. As you guys know, our new product intro specials are usually the best time to buy from us.
And BIG props to Greg for that fantastic 2nd demo .... Smooth as Butter
