88 Ultra-Detailed Articulations
The 8Dio SQS (Studio Quartet Series) Solo Bass marks a new leap in sampling for us. We recorded one of the greatest solo bassists alive today, a principal bassist of the BBC and other orchestras, ultra-deep-sampled with 88 articulations ranging from true polyphonic legato to a wealth of short-note options, dozens of velocity-based arcs, twelve different Ostinatos, and performance-based articulations. Recorded in a controlled studio environment at Scotland’s Premiere Recording Studio, Gorbals Sound, the Bass was captured in incredible detail and without compromise utilizing two dual-microphone techniques. This combined method allows you to freely blend between a direct signal and a more spacious and ambient position, enabling you to control the positioning and distance of the Cello accurately.
Organized into six separate categories, each of the included sound-sets offers a range of features and playing styles, all easily accessible from the in-built browser system. The Solo Bass features five individually recorded Legato articulations enabling you to play in a variety of styles, speeds, and with and without a mute (con sordino). Each of the main performance-based Legatos also features original and musical coloration and dynamic changes, ensuring the pure and lifelike nature of the live performance can be accurately preserved. With eighty-eight independently captured, multi-dynamic, and authentically sounding articulations, you have access to all the tools you need to create music that goes beyond realism.
