Dark Bass is the third of a series of Libraries that has been designed to provide an expansive range of dark and suspenseful textures whilst providing controls to allow the Composer to easily invent unique sounds.

ON THE FLY MOD WHEEL

FILTERS AND ENVELOPES

Shape the tone of each sound each sound with two 4 - Pole Adaptive Resonant filters - one High Pass, one Low Pass.

Glide your sounds in or turn long ones into short ones with the full ADSR volume shaping envelope controls. There are separate Volume Envelopes for Long and Short Sounds.


LFO VOLUME MODULATION

Each instrument has a multi-LFO based volume modulator so you can add everything from subtle vibrato to full-on tremelo effects. RSSD03 Dark Bass also responds to pitch wheel movments which can be used for string bends and vibrato.



WHEN THE SAMPLE STARTS

Many of the sounds in this library are long. You can change the starting point of each sound by tweaking the Playback Offset Controls. This is especially useful for tailoring reverse hits to your music.



CHORDS

Not limited to specific strumming patterns or rhythms - you play in what you like. When one of the Chord Switches is engaged two sections of the Keyboard open up - one for Down Strums one for Up Strums.

You can choose from Bar, Open and Power Chords.

"Free Chord Play" - Simply use the top end of the Keyboard to select the type of Chord you want then play in  the roots notes as you like. If you can tap out simple rhythms with your left and right hands then you can easily play Chords on our Guitars & Basses.


We also have a secion of the keyboard for what we call "Dead Strums". These are muted Percussive Strums. These can be used to punctuate your rhythmic Chord playing to funk up your vamps.

"Speed and Emphasis" - Easily control Strum Speed and Note Emphasis (bringing out  high or  low notes of each Chord) with simple Dial Controls.
