Ueberschall releases Upright Bass 2 (Elastik soundbank)

20th January 2022

Ueberschall has announced the release of their newest loop library, Upright Bass 2. As part of the Instrument Series, this product focuses on the upright bass.

Here is what they say about the library:

In skilled hands, the upright bass is an amazingly expressive instrument, capable of adding instant character and class to a musical arrangement. As a follow-up to the original Upright Bass release, Upright Bass 2 is a further product in the Elastik Instrument Series, each of which focuses on a single instrument. As before, it features virtuoso playing, captured in pristine audio quality. However, the performances in this release contrast with the original by delivering generally lower tempos and a deeper, warmer, tone, with plenty of sub-bass content and the perfect amount of room ambience to let the performances breathe.

Upright Bass 2 provides a collection of authentic phrases, filled with musical details, that can easily be combined to create a totally realistic performance. The library contains over 800MB of samples, with nearly 450 different loops and phrases. These are organized into 30 folders, each containing between 9 and 21 phrases and phrase variations. The folders focus on giving enough variations to create a realistic, varied contrabass accompaniment while not wandering too far away from the original theme. Individual loops have a length of 2 or 4 bars and can easily be combined to create longer performances providing plenty of musical variation. With Elastik's time-stretching and pitch-shifting capabilities, the phrases can easily be mixed and matched between folders, or to suit the needs of an existing musical project.


Price: 49,- Euro.
