Samples of a bass played by a different bassist than our other basses. These samples are not polite and have a ton of character. The strings get plucked hard and rattle against the frets. The bass (a Squier Jazz) is a classic design and the tuning is standard (with additional samples of the low E string tuned down), so this is our best library for a typical aggressive rock or punk sound.

310 24-bit 44.1 kHz wav samples, seven SFZ mappings, and a 159 MB download. The first half of the below demo uses the dirty mapping with free amp sim and channel strip plugins, and the second half is the shifty mapping with a basic low-pass filter sweep, reverb and compression for a more synthlike sound.
