Introducing Bass Pedals – An endless source of wall-shattering subs, filthy bass drones and obese analogue tones!
Bass Pedals for Kontakt 4 (and above) is powered by over 3200 meticulously recorded multi-sampled sounds, driven by a custom scripted Kontakt 4 engine and intuitive graphical interface.
Inspired by the sought-after Moog Taurus Mk1 bass synthesizer, Bass Pedals combines powerful analogue source sounds with modern sound shaping capabilities to create a versatile and fully programmable bass synthesizer!
A full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4 or 5 is required to use our Bass Pedals instrument.
Bass Pedals for Kontakt features four main editing pages:
The preset page is able to load 28 extensively multi-sampled patches designed and recorded from a vintage Moog Taurus MK1 bass synthesizer. All preset patches boast 3 x round robin sample variations and long sample lengths to help capture the imperfections and quirkiness of the original instrument. Sounds from this page can be further edited and mixed with Bass Pedals' 'raw oscillators' (see below) to create interesting 'hybrid' patches
Raw Oscillator (Synthesizer) Page
Synthesize your own 'Taurus like' sounds using Bass Pedals' raw oscillators... Raw mode boasts 2 analogue oscillators (each with switchable saturated waveforms courtesy of an Empirical Labs Fatso), 1 switchable sub oscillator, noise source, and oscillator unison modes, all of which are individually powered by an extensive set of carefully looped waveforms recorded from a Taurus MK1 analogue bass synthesizer
The effects page boasts a number of fully editable effects as well as specially created reverb IR's (Impulse Responses) recorded from our Eventide DSP-7000 Harmonizer
The controls page gives you control over the instruments mono mode with selectable note priorities, portamento, pitch bend range, keyboard velocity and curve response. It is important to note that just like the original Moog Taurus; Bass Pedals has been designed to be a monophonic instrument. A custom Kontakt script is used to realistically 'mute' previous notes once a new key is played, even when using long amp release settings
