Bela D Media releases Bela D Bass | Power Signature LE for Kontakt

Bela D Media

Bela D Media has announced the release of Bela D Bass | Power Signature LE for Kontakt. Its MSRP is $99.99 and is available via download.

Bela D Media says "heavily influenced by the attack, present tone, and aggressive playing style of Geddy Lee (RUSH), Bela D Bass is the first bass library to deliver a truly unique and lyrical sound. It is far beyond that of the typical and over used bass tone. Driven by attitude, power and melodic grace, Bela D Bass | Power Signature is the prog-rock/metal composers dream."

Sampled Rig:

  • Signature Jazz Bass.
  • EMG J-Bass Active Pickups.
  • Roto Sound Strings RS 66LD.
  • Avalon U5 Tube Direct Box.
  • Sans Amp R.B.I. Bass Preamp.

Virtual Rig:

  • Direct Bass.
  • Ampeg 1x15 IRF.
  • Ampeg 4x10 IRF.
  • User controlled Compression, EQ and Excitement Reverb.

Performance Play Scripting
The Performance Play Script puts nearly every fret-hand technique the library offers in one powerful NKI file. Featuring real-time access to legato; slides; vibrato; harmonics; palm mutes; and more. All of the above can be accessed by three dynamically playable and distinctive plucking styles.

Bela D Bass begins with 3 main fingering articulations:

  • Fingernail - Using fingernails gives the bass a particular harmonic over-tone and attack. It is almost the same approach of fingering used by classical guitarists.
  • Fingernail Flick - a unique set of fingernail flicking samples. The flicking sound is generated by the fingernail pushing up and over the string. Consider it up picking.
  • Pinch and Pull - This finger style produces a very sharp attack followed by a softer sustain. The strings are pulled away from the neck and quickly released, generating more punch, rattle and buzz.

Assigned to each of the 3 fingering articulations is a host of features that include:

  • Sustained Straight tone.
  • Sustained Vibrato.
  • Sustained bend.
  • Marcato Straight tone.
  • Marcato Vibrato.
  • Marcato Slide away.
  • Staccato.
  • Hammer-on.
  • Pull-off.
  • Palm Mutes.
  • Harmonics.

Power Play features include:

  • Groove Control functionality.
  • Key-up functionality.
  • Real-time legato slide control.
  • Real-time hammer-on/pull-off control.
  • Auto mono/poly modes via sustain pedal.
  • Round Robin and Multi Release Triggers.
