Orange Tree Samples releases Evolution Vintage Violin Bass


Orange Tree Samples announced the release of Evolution Vintage Violin Bass.  This virtual instrument was inspired by the violin-shaped electric bass that became the foundational bass tone for a majority of the Beatles’ catalog.  For a limited time, you can purchase this violin bass library at an introductory price of $139 (regular price $199).  It’s NKS ready and runs in the free Kontakt Player 5.7.0 or the full version of Kontakt 5.7.0 and higher.  Standalone, AAX, VST, and AU plugin formats are supported.  More details from Orange Tree Samples below. 

Evolution Vintage Violin Bass captures this highly coveted violin bass sound with the usual high level of detail you’ve come to expect from our Evolution series. The library covers both picked as well as fingerstyle playing, with open and partially muted combinations of both, among other articulations. We recorded the neck and bridge pickup signals separately, giving you control over their blend for an additional dimension of tonal flexibility. The neck pickup delivers a warm, fat low end, while the bridge pickup adds brightness and definition.

Evolution Vintage Violin Bass is based on our Evolution engine, which provides you with a wealth of appointments: a flexible mapping system, customization over the instrument’s settings and playability, and a comprehensive collection of built-in effects for adding the final polish to the bass tone. If you’ve used any of our guitar or bass libraries that use the Evolution engine, its interface and workflow will be very familiar to you.

The library includes many ready-to-use factory presets for a variety of bass tones, many of which take inspiration from the classics that originally made the bass famous.

Key Features:

– Built-in effects engine for instantly-usable bass tones.

– Adjustable pick position using our proprietary physical modeling technology.

– Powerful mapping system that lets you set how you want to trigger articulations, using conditions such as velocity ranges, MIDI CCs, latching and non-latching keyswitches, and more.

Sampling specifications:

– 11.7 GB (compressed to 5.8 GB using the lossless NCW audio format) of 24-bit samples.

– Articulations such as sustains, palm mutes, mutes, and natural harmonics, all available in picked and fingerstyle variations, as well as performance effects like string slaps, divebombs, fret noises, and much more.

– MIDI articulations for instant octaves, grace notes, buzz trills, whole-step slides, whole-step hammer-ons, and slides (velocity-based and tempo-synced).

– Legato samples for slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.

– The articulations have 3 dynamics, 2 pick directions (when applicable), and 2x round-robin.
