Very Good: This instrument or product has been carefully played/used and shows few,
minor signs of use. In most respects it looks and performs like new and may be considered

Big Fish BASiS Bass Virtual Instrument SoftwareBecome master of the low end with the BASiS virtual instrument from Big Fish Audio. Featuring a comprehensively sampled collection of electric, upright, fretless, and synth basses, BASiS offers incredible attention to detail in the depth and breadth of bass samples: 24-bit sampling, DI, and amp blending control, multiple velocity layers, seamless humanizing, custom legato and vibrato tools, release layers, harmonics, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, slaps, rakes, falls, and more.BASiS software includes a diverse sample collection of basses—7 gigabytes' worth—in one virtual instrument: classics like the Jazz Bass, P-Bass, Rickenbacker, and Musicman basses are presented alongside personality and genre traits such as a classic Motown bass, a gospel bass, Jaco's Fretless, and Macca's Hofner. One upright bass and three slap basses are also included. In the synth bass category, more than a hundred patches are provided, ranging from thumping vintage synth basses to techno basses, as well as esoteric, fresh creations for spicing up your tracks. Each virtual instrument has been meticulously mastered and programmed for maximum musicality when placed in a mix.All electric basses have been sampled from both a direct input (DI) and amped perspective. A knob on the interface allows phase-aligned blending of the two, or the selection of one or the other. For the upright bass, the same knob allows mixing of the direct input and a phase-aligned tube mic output capture of the same sessions. Other onscreen controls allow pitch bend range adjustment, pick noise and fret noise controls, release layer controls, adjustable velocity curve, and instant and detailed control over EQ. A comprehensive selection of effects is included, including an octaver, compression, saturation, lo-fi, distortion, limiter, phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, and delay.Performance features include an innovative legato tool designed for true finger-smooth playing, and a customizable vibrato engine with control over vibrato types, speeds, and depths. Rather than opting for traditional LFO-based vibrato, BASiS uses a sophisticated character vibrato modeled after real bass players, completely controllable from the keyboard and onscreen interface. Randomized pick noises, release samples, and fret noises add to the realism of each instrument.BASiS is powered by the popular KONTAKT Player 2 engine, offering total integration into all major sequencers via its AudioUnit, VST, and RTAS plug-ins, as well as standalone operation. It also works perfectly within both KONTAKT 2 and KOTAKT 3.BASiS includes an impressive number of features and custom engines designed specifically for this library tailored to the unique characteristics of the basses.Amp/DI ControlEach electric bass includes an Amp/DI balance knob, allowing full blending control between phase-accurate samples of the direct bass signal and an amped recording of the same take. The user can turn the knob to output 100% of one or the other, or blend the two seamlessly, resulting in a vast amount of tonal variety to help the bass fit into any mix. For convenience, the knob can also be controlled via external MIDI continuous controllers. A similar control is available in the upright bass, but it blends the direct signal with a miced signal.Realism EnginesA number of custom engines are designed to contribute to the realism of the sound. A breakthrough intelligent legato mode allows for real finger legato playing, and the engine automatically responds to the playing style to interpret a realistic legato. Adjustable pick noise, fret noise, and finger releases (the sound of the finger lifting off the string at the end of each note played) help recreate the basses with complete authenticity. A Humanize engine further extends the realism by introducing slight variations in each note played, avoiding the dreaded machine-gun effect. Fret noise is added, not by a random routine, but by an artificial intelligence engine that watches for where the player is moving on the virtual fretboard.Modes and articulationsAn onscreen display gives real-time information on the currently selected articulations, playing mode (polyphonic, monophonic, and legato), and release layers. Varying articulations were recorded for each bass, including long notes, harmonics, mutes, slides, slaps, pulloffs, falls, releases, noises, and more. Both traditional keyswitching and forced keyswitching (hold down the keyswitch trigger to affect the note(s) currently being played but return to the previous mode as soon as the keyswitch trigger is released) have been designed for maximum ease of use, and all are displayed on the onscreen display in real time. The end result is that BASiS is able to interpret any style of incoming MIDI playing and render a completely realistic bass part with a minimum of manual-reading.Character VibratoFull vibrato control, painstakingly modeled after vibrato made by real bass players, is available, including seven different characters of vibrato.Dynamic ResponseAn adjustable velocity curve allows for fine-tuning of the dynamic response of the basses.EffectsA full suite of effects is included in BASiS, including a custom-written Octaver, and full EQ controls. Each of these effects offers a full page of tweakable settings that can be adjusted.Remote ControlEvery parameter in the onscreen BASiS engine (including its subpages) can be controlled remotely via MIDI continuous controllers (CC's), and can be adjusted in real time.
