Evolution Electric Bass Rick has chromatic samples for each string, meaning each fret was individually sampled. It has 32x round-robin and three morphing velocity layers designed for a smooth dynamic range. It has time-dependent release samples (15 different release times sampled) as well as time-dependent legato samples. The legato samples consist of hammer-ons and pull-off articulations sampled chromatically up to a minor 3rd upward and a minor 3rd downward as well as chromatic half-step slides. These legato samples were sampled at up to eight different transition times. It also includes muted notes (8x round-robin), pre-roll samples (32x round-robin), muted slap samples (8x round-robin, 8 velocities), as well as slap releases (4x round-robin). The slap releases were sampled chromatically on each string, so they are specific release transitions from a sustained note.
Evolution Electric Bass Rick's key features include:
- Over 7 GB of samples.
- 32x round-robin, 3 morphing velocity layers, chromatically sampled.
- Scripting for automatic string selection, legato articulations, slides, and customizable mapping system.
