Bad Bassist is a deep sampled sound library of an Ibanez SRX305 bass guitar through a Powerstate PBT100+BB15 combo, using "fingered" playing technique. This is NOT one of the usual bass guitar sample libraries, it has some unusual and different extra features.
The SRX305 has a nice tone, good for backing, adds deep and rich bass sound to your music. If you use it as a normal bass guitar library, then it sounds as a normal bass guitar library. It doesn't contain much features, there are no various playing techniques inside, just a simple and easy to use bass guitar instrument.
Switch it to Bad Bassist mode and experience a totally different way of playing the bass: unique sound with bad and randomly played notes. Your music won't be the same twice.
