I'm not sure which other bass libraries you're referring to, but the Rickenbacker will absolutely have velocity layers. I'm currently planning at least 3-4 velocity layers, but concentrating on having more round-robin, since that's a more crucial aspect when it comes to realism. For example, the natural difference in dynamics for each round-robin sample will not only make it sound like there are many more velocity layers, but also vastly improve repeating notes--a very important aspect when it comes to creating realistic bass tracks.
