Waves Audio Release Bass Fingers!
Waves Audio have just released a new sample instrument called Bass Fingers,
Here is some blurb from the website:
The most detailed and nuanced fingerstyle bass virtual instrument in existence. Lay down authentic and realistic-sounding basslines with the personality of a seasoned bass player—intuitively on your keyboard.
It ain’t easy creating realistic sounding MIDI basslines. It’s more than just notes—you want to hear the expressiveness, the touch of the strings hitting the frets, and all the goodness that happens in-between the notes to make a bassline sound like a player and not a computer.
Bass Fingers translates your MIDI input into basslines full of character and personality, giving you the same mechanics, variations and dynamics a seasoned bass player creates naturally across the fretboard.
Designed, recorded and edited by highly regarded bass player Or Lubianiker (Marty Friedman, Gus G, Bumblefoot), Bass Fingers is an ultra-natural sounding, high-performance virtual instrument with an extensive range of articulation and control over your sound—from natural legatos, release and decays, to realistic percussive playing, sampled slides, mechanical noises, and other natural playing effects.
Featuring an extensive sample library with 15.5GB of hand-crafted bass samples, Bass Fingers gives you the most extensive and realistic fingerstyle bass vocabulary possible.
