Creatively sampled 150-year-old upright Bass.

Product Overview

English Bass is a collection of instruments which creatively sample a 150-year-old upright bass.

The are 5 unique instruments at your disposal here. All of which have been derived from over 2000 recordings of this enchanting old instrument.


  • The Longs instrument explores expressive long articulations and dramatic swells.
  • For the Clouds instrument, many instances of pizzicato and col legno can be layered together to create prickly sustained textures.
  • The Rhythms instrument can be used to create rhythmic ostinatos.
  • The Percussion instrument explores the dramatic percussive sounds an acoustic bass can make. Features snap pizzicato, col legno, and a set of drums, designed out of sounds from the body of the bass.
  • Finally The Effects is a creative collection of manipulated and extended sound design techniques useful for layering with the main instruments.
  • Over 2000 Samples. Includes MIDI clips for Longs, Percussion and Rhythms patches.

Note: Requires the FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 to run. Will also run in the FULL version of Kontakt 6. Please do not purchase this if you only have Kontakt Player.
