Description




Sam Spacey, the producer behind the multi award-winning Epica, presents Epica Bass - a dedicated analog bass synth library obsessively sampled from a large collection of all star classic analog synths and modulars. No emulations or plugins were used in the recording of Epica Bass as Sam believes that to truly capture the saturated harmonically rich textures that true analog synthesis brings, you have to keep the recording chain as purely analog as the source synths themselves.

From the vintage Neve preamp and the UBK Fatso hardware to the boutique guitar distortion pedals and Kush Audio Elektra EQ’s, the gear involved in the making of this Kontakt instrument ensures that Epica Bass sits perfectly in the mix without the need to pile on plugins.

The custom 6 page interface has been designed to give you full control over your sound without slowing down the creative juices. 4 x dedicated synth parameter pages, an extensive Arpeggiator page and a complete FX rack full of Delay, Convolution Reverb, SSL EQ, 1176 Compressor, Flanger, Chorus, Bit Crush etc. to further polish your sound.

Using various Sample Start Point modulation destinations, Epica Bass gives you control over the original sampled synths filter rather than using emulation filters. With that said we have also included six of Native Instruments analog modelled filters from Kontakt 5 for your use.

With 26,657 24bit mono samples weighing in at 7GB we believe that we have given these classic synths the attention to detail normally reserved for classical instrument libraries. Multiple round robins, multi velocity samples and long hand edited loop points (where used) ensure that the full character of these classic synthesiser were captured as faithfully as possible.

With 625 Epic presets and an interface that begs to be manipulated into your own creations Epica Bass will give years of use as your main source of Bass sound.

NEW! Full NKS compatibility
NKS (Native Kontrol Standard) allows for intuitive and seamless interaction between plug-in instruments and Native Instruments´ KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE hardware. This gives you a mouse-free hands-on way of not only controlling Epica Bass, but also a vastly improved means of browsing/selecting categorised presets. For those that love designing their own presets, NKS frees you from the confines of the mouse and PC screen with each Epica Bass parameter mapped to the hardware controls.
