Karoryfer releases Meatbass free instrument for Sforzando    16th July 2016

Karoryfer has released Meatbass, free instrument for Plogue Sforzando.

A large and meaty bassist's large and meaty bass recorded with the help of a thin and bony producer. These are samples of a 1958 Otto Rubner acoustic double bass including bowed notes, plucked notes plus various muted plucks and percussive noises.

Arco is five velocity layers with two round robins across four octaves, pizzicato is four velocity layers with four round robins across three octaves, and percussion is eight different sounds with five round robins. All that adds up to a total of 434 samples (though there are more files as there are looped and unlooped versions of some bowed samples) and a 242 MB download. The bass was tuned in fifths, one octave below a cello, so the range of notes sampled goes down to C instead of the standard E, but the C string was also sampled tuned down to A.

In addition to basic arco and pizz mappings, there are also three-voice and six-voice versions. They don't sound like a very realistic bass section, but they are great at making huge, wide and organic basses for EDM or hip-hop. All controls are mapped to MIDI CC.

There's also an earlier sample library of the same bass which is less polished but that sometimes has its advantages - the loudest velocity layers are downright excessive, there are also various scratchy bow noises, and it generally has a wilder, sloppier and brighter character.

17 of these samples were also used to make Ironface, which is kind of a fake synthesizer made from real bowed bass samples.

sforzando is a free, highly SFZ 2.0 compliant sample player. Advanced sample hobbyists now have a powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on proprietary formats.
