Chocolate Audio releases BBassV Electric Bass for Kontakt with launch offer

Chocolate Audio has announced the release of the BBassV Electric Bass for Kontakt with a special 35% off launch offer.

This instrument is the outcome of several years of research and development at our headquarters and it strives to set a new benchmark in terms of playbility and tone.

A long time was dedicated to achieving the best possible tone by trimming and fine tuning Kontakt internal effects and by adding a 172 custom cabinet + mic impulse responses.

Playability was addressed through the development of custom algorithms to emulate the way a real bass player moves along and across the fretboard.

Add to this an exclusive legato/slide engine which plays realtime legato and slide-to articulations at any BPM, using intuitive keyboard techniques.

We sampled a Yamaha BB415 5-string electric bass, an instrument well-known by experienced bass players for its character and personality.
