Ample Bass Upright II - Acoustic Bass based on Samples of an Upright Bass

ABU is designed from the ground up to be the most versatile bass virtual instrument available today with a new level of expressiveness. ABU not only performs as an extraordinary acoustic instrument by playback partially from mic samples, but also as an electric instrument by playback partially from DI samples, creating a more dynamic and subtle playing experience. Furthermore, users can mix and process Mics and DI separately to get a variety of sound.

ABU Also includes the built-in tab player, which can load all popular tabular formats, as well as the "riffer"  adjusting your basslines to the desired genre through a large selection of presets.

Upright Bass Main GUI Screen

Features:

  • ABU is designed from the ground up to be the most versatile bass virtual instrument available today with a new level of expressiveness. ABU not only performs as an extraordinary acoustic instrument by playback partially from mic samples, but also as an electric instrument by playback partially from DI samples, creating a more dynamic and subtle playing experience. Furthermore, users can mix and process Mics and DI separately to get a variety of sound.

  • ABU uses more mics to record every detail of upright bass from neck, body and ambience and provides 2 stereo modes and 2 mono modes on mix interface. Users can adjust volumes of mics and width to get more options in stereo mode, in which ABU has rich expressiveness even for solo. For mono modes, ABU can play an important role of middle-low end in a band steadily.

  • Different from any other product of Ample Sound, ABU's slide mechanism is designed specifically for fretless instrument which can reproduce the smoothness of fretless legato with any duration, speed, pitch and polyphony.

  • Redesigned Tab Player for bass tab. All articulations and notations are supported by the tab player. Realistic Tab playback can be achieved through fine parameter adjustments and humanizations.

  • Multiple Capo Logics - providing various options of automatic fingering logic to cover different performance such as solo, chorus, and so on.

Upright Bass Riffer Panel

  • String Roll Editor: can clearly show fingering, articulation, expression, and even playing noise. Every note has 8 attributes - pitch, velocity, length, off velocity, articulation, legato, vibrato and bend, with which you can make a delicate lick.

  • Dice - Random Riff Generator: A click will create a new inspiration because it is not simply a random algorithm. Rather, it summarizes the rules through analyzing a bunch of music scores.

  • Multiple Formats Conversion: The conversion between Riff, MIDI, Tab multiple formats, Every fingering, articulation, expression, humanizations will be automatically converted to MIDI keyswitch and controller.

  • High order 8-band EQ, intuitive control of frequency response, real-time visualization of input and output spectrum, support of soloing single band..

Upright Bass FX GUI

Der Bass klingt runder und voller als der VSL Upright Bass, führt allerdings dazu, dass er im Mix mehr Platz beansprucht. Ein Kritikpunkt: Die Samples haben - zumindest unter Bitwig - eine nach meinen Geschmack etwas zu hohe Latenz. Beim „live“ spielen fällt das nicht auf, aber wenn in der DAW Noten exakt auf einem Raster gesetzt sind, klingt das ganze etwas „verschleppt“ und man muß entweder die Startpunkte der Noten manuell oder mit dem Latenzausgleich ein paar Millisekunden vorziehen.

Great Work, Thank you. An Upright Bass I was looking for a long time. It´s a lot of fun to play some jazz improvisations and directly have an authentic sound. Combined with a piano, instantly lovely music.
