"Some time ago, Project16 sampled his Rickenbacker
4001 Bass. Available as Kontakt and SFZ instruments,
you should definitely pick them up if you haven't
already. They are among the best free Basses
available anywhere and I think they stack up well
against commercial libraries.
Project16 redid many Fingered and Picked samples in
even higher quality before a rope broke. While this
session was never finished, Project16 gave me
permission to use the over 1400 samples he had
recorded and edited. Using the script and shell by
Mickaël Ménager, I've created a new Kontakt
instrument called Version 2 to differentiate it from
the great Kontakt instruments created by AKJ using
the original samples. The two are quite different
and both are worth trying."
