Downloading the multi now. I am looking forward to trying this out and am pleased and surprised that the one purchase gets all of the formats I would ever personally use.

Very nice I'm picking up the Musicman and Dirt basses. Their hard to pass up at that price.
Is it possible to upgrade my previously purchased basses to the multi-format bundle? I think you have all the sample playback options covered now.

If I could add, my only complaint or feature I'd like to see added would be some type of control over the volume of hammer-ons,pull-offs and slides. They often seem too subtle. I find your basses excel at rock and roll and I'd like these articulations to be more aggressive.

Regardless thanks for offering up your work at such a great price.

I have had a look at the SFZ format files and, after a bit of a tussle with the SFZ plugin, got it working fine.

It sounds pretty good to me and the overall combo is a lot lighter on its feet CPU wise than kontakt, although it seems to load all samples into RAM as well. Can SFZ stream samples from disc I wonder? Must investigate.

I loaded up four instances of SFZ and loaded a different set of samples in each, then tried some volume automation to emphasise particular sample types (e.g. pick) at particular times, then tried having a track for
each sample type and splitting the bass part between them. A MIDI gate or switch could also be used to send the midi to one instance or another depending which type of sound you wanted in a particular place. Manual scripting, if you like.

With this setup the CPU usage was almost non-existant but the RAM blew out pretty quick.

I certainly missed the kontakt scripting, and the workarounds are a bit tedious but it works OK and sounds good.

At the very least it is a much neater solution than managing a billion samples yourself, and at its best it might support the re-emergance of SFZ as a viable format.

Full marks!
