Heavily used by The Doors on live shows, Piano Bass is an icon of the rock and funk music. We did a recreation based on Spectral Modeling, offering the real sound and feel of the instrument in only 30MB.
Carefully crafted, recreates in detail every single mechanical noise and main timbre. No velocity switching since is not sample-based. Available for Mac & Win, Standalone and Plug-in versions.
Fire piano bass can be used as a normal bass or even to play melodies on the low end, thanks to the rich harmonic spectrum.
We also recreated mechanics sound and releases, a big part of the Piano Bass sound.
THE BASS PIANO
Late in the 60's the Piano Bass was released and was used on many records and live shows. Equiped with the same tines and pickups system you can find on a regular tine-based Electric pianos, the Piano Bass offers a deeper and warmer, with reinforced low frequencies.
WHAT EXACTLY IS SPECTRAL MODELING?
Every sound in nature can be split into simple sinewaves. From thunder to a trumpet. Spectral modeling is the technique to analyze and recreate sinewaves spectra to recreate the exact timbre and behavior of an instrument.
According to Julius O. Smith (Standford) Spectral modeling provides a sound representation much closer to the perception of sound by the brain because your ear and brain are in fact spectral decoders.
