Ample Bass Acoustic Features:
- New sample engine applied to both plugged and unplugged
ABA is designed from the ground up to be the most versatile bass virtual instrument available today with a new level of expressiveness. ABA not only performs as an extraordinary acoustic instrument by playback partially from mic samples, but also as an electric instrument by playback partially from DI samples, creating a more dynamic and subtle playing experience. Furthermore, users can mix and process Mics and DI separately to get a variety of sound.
- Multiple stereo and mono modes
For Mic part, ABA provides two stereo and two mono modes. Users can adjust volumes of mics and width to get more options in stereo mode, in which ABA has rich expressiveness even for solo. For mono modes, ABA can play an important role of middle-low end in a band steadily.
- Tab Player
Redesigned Tab Player for bass tab. All articulations and notations are supported by the tab player. Realistic Tab playback can be achieved through fine parameter adjustments and humanizations.
- Multiple Capo Logics – providing various options of automatic fingering logic to cover different performance such as solo, chorus, and so on.
- String Roll Editor: can clearly show fingering, articulation, expression, and even playing noise. Every note has 8 attributes – pitch, velocity, length, off velocity, articulation, legato, vibrato and bend, with which you can make a delicate lick.
- Dice – Random Riff Generator: A click will create a new inspiration because it is not simply a random algorithm. Rather, it summarizes the rules through analyzing a bunch of music scores.
