The Tab Player can load and play several prevalent guitar\bass tablature file formats. Users can load, display and playback any specific track inside a tablature file. When used in DAWs, the Tab Player also allows users to export the tablature as an audio file.
The Tab Player supports all the fingering, looping, chords, articulations and other markers in the loaded tablature. Supported articulations include: Strum, Natural Harmonic, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On/Pull Off, Trill, Bend, Tremolo Bar, Legato Slide, Slide In, Slide Out, Vibrato, Tremolo Picking, Palm Mute, Slapping, Popping, Tapping, Let Ring, Staccato, Dead Note, Grace Note, Ghost Note, Accentuated Note, Fade In, etc.
As a built-in function, the Tab Player works seamlessly with the Ample Sound instrument engine, which has extremely customized guitar playing logic so as to model a real world guitar being played. The Tab Player can even judge on its own to automatically add some refining articulations when it thinks it is appropriate, such as slapping on strings or body, or other realistic and indispensable noises.
The Ample Sound website is BOGUS! You have to be "an existing customer" to download the free stuff. And, there is no way to register, that I could find.I also couldn't find a link to their home page from anywhere on their site. Have fun with this one, gents...
I was able to download it. It seemed like it took an awfully long time for it to start though. Go (http://www.amplesound.net/en/download.asp) scroll down to just below the "Existing Customers" nonsense (seems like you don't have to deal with it in this case) and where it says "ABP Lite II (Free) v2.31 | Mac | Win" just mouse-over the OS of your choice and sit back and wait for a long while it to reply. Hope this helps.
I love the low end of this bass, great job! Does anyone know if articulations are disabled for the LITE version? I'm running it in Cubase for Mac, but there is no way I can have any single articulation working.
