Versatile, expressive plucked legato upright bass

The Upright is plucked legato upright bass library for Kontakt.

Musical Samping had been talking about doing this one for a while, but they weren’t sure it’d properly benefit from the sampling techniques they employed for their legato guitar libraries. Thankfully, they were proven wrong and the end result exceeded the expectations.

For the Master Legato patch, they included natural legato up to a major 3rd, slide-plucks up to an octave and slide no-plucks up to a major 2nd (the latter two with slide speed CC control). Great patch for a variety of settings due to its enhanced expressive capabilities.

The Performance Sustains patch is a real workhorse; comprised of samples all pulled from curated phrases - enhancing the tone, consistency and fluidity.

The Body Perc includes a collection of slaps, thumps, knocks, fret slides and room tone - all of which are mapped below the playable range of the upright bass. With this setup you can arm both patches simultaneously and jam away.
