Cedarbass

A woody bass for Kontakt

Product Overview

Cedarbass is a woody, acoustic-sounding bass.

If Rickenbacker made an acoustic bass guitar, it might sound something like this. Multi-sampled, with different velocity-levels and articulations, round-robin triggering of alternate samples, note-off noises etc.

You want dirt! I'll give you dirt! Turn the knob and the amp simulation kicks in. Even better, there is a Kontakt script to do intelligent legato - you can simultaneously tie legato notes together and play polyphonic bass-lines. Yes, you too can be Jaco.

There is lots more control: after-touch (key-pressure) for vibrato, the mod-wheel for distortion.

The custom Kontakt interface has a "tone" knob which controls the mic position, and a knob to control the note-off volume.

(Compatible with Kontakt 2.2.4 or higher) - NOT Kontakt Player
