This new KORE-powered instrument provides numerous production-ready bass sounds for $79. Based on the KORE Player and its integrated synthesis and sample engines, the instrument covers the full spectrum of the bottom end, from classic acoustic and electric bass to vintage analog sounds and synthesizer tones.
Classic instruments include fingered, picked and slapped electric basses from sample producers Scarbee and Pettinhouse, as well as an exclusive antique upright bass that was sampled and re-created. These instruments are complemented with a large selection of ultra-modern bass tones that take advantage of the integrated Absynth, FM8, Massive and Reaktor engines. A further section provides a range of classic subtractive synth bass sounds that have been sampled from several analog synthesizers.
Essential Bass can be used both within the free KORE Player and with the full-featured KORE 2 system. Each of the 200 sounds includes eight morphable variations, as well as concise musical metadata for the KORE sound browser.
