Chocolate Audio releases BBassV Electric Bass for Kontakt with launch offer

-
Chocolate Audio





Chocolate Audio has announced the release of the BBassV Electric Bass for Kontakt. The instrument is the outcome of several years of research and development and it strives to set a new benchmark in terms of playability and tone. A long time was dedicated to achieving the best possible tone by trimming and fine tuning Kontakt's internal effects and by adding 172 custom cabinet + mic impulse responses.

Playability was addressed through the development of custom algorithms to emulate the way a real bass player moves along and across the fretboard. In addition there is an exclusive legato/slide engine which plays realtime legato and slide-to articulations at any BPM, using intuitive keyboard techniques.

Chocolate Audio sampled a Yamaha BB415 5-string electric bass, an instrument well-known by experienced bass players for its character and personality.

Features:

  • 964 MB (lossless compressed) library size, 6517 samples.
  • Samples are looped after roughly 6 seconds to save on RAM.
  • 4 sustaining dynamic layers, chromatically sampled.
  • 4 round robins for each note/dynamic (2 index + 2 middle finger samples).

  • effects section specially tuned for bass instruments.
