Straight Ahead Samples is pleased to announce Straight Ahead! Bass. Taking from all that was learned on Jazz Drums and Brushes & Mallets libraries, SAS dove right away into creating a realistic upright bass library. Our focus is similar to our drum libraries; the sound and the feel. Featuring our new "Accented Legato" script which is more than just stock legato transitions, this mimics the way players truly move from note to note:

  • Deeply sampled beautiful, 7/8 size double bass.
  • 3 microphone positions w/ user-controlled interface.
  • Multiple articulations.
  • 4 velocity, 4 round robins.
  • "Accented Legato" scripting for realistic legato playing.
  • Arco.
  • 3.19 GB.

The Bass:

  • 7/8 size.
  • Fully carved.
  • Gamba shaped.
  • Branded: G.A. Pfretzschner, Markneukirchen.
  • Circa late 19th or early 20th century.

I have this library for more than 2 years already and it's one of my all time favourite acoustic basses.
The bass is so good, that it takes using another library to appreciate just how good it is.
Sounds so close to the real thing and is so detailed and warm. Super bass for serious jazz lovers. Certainly an underestimated library.
