60s Klira Violin BASS by PastToFuture (for Kontakt)
The best and most detailed bass that we have ever made so far!
With 30 Alternative samples per key!
If you like THE Beatles-Bass sound, this Bass is the right choice!
We used our vintage RFT 4053 Tube Mic-Pre/DI from the 60s to capture this amazing bass
This Bass goes actually beyond the Hofner sound due to its special Toaster Pick-Ups that have more attack and clarity so you can hear this bass also in small speakers!
The Klira company was a German manufacturer of stringed instruments from 1887 to around 1982. In the 1960s, Klira was one of the leading German guitar manufacturers alongside its competitors. To a lesser extent, Klira also produced electric basses, mostly copies of the model 500/1, also known as the Beatles Bass. In the sixties, Klira was able to record its greatest sales successes due to the increased demand for electric basses and the expansion of the export business.
So we recorded this "gem of a bass" and cleverly scripted it into a perfect bass library.
The real strength of this bass guitar lies in its playability.
No machine-gun effect thanks to Multi-Round-Robin.
The typical "Beatles-Bass-feeling" can be felt due to the different articulations.
The Analog taste gives the bass character and the flavor it needs for a realistic performance of a bass guitar.
This is how the bass cuts through your mix in a perfectly authentic way.
This VINTAGE BASS is an all-purpose weapon, so it is also very suitable for modern music styles.
Here are the main features:
- clear and easy to use interface
- Real Multi-Round-Robin and articulations (30 Alternative samples per key/note)
- Kontakt 5.4.3 and above (48kHz/24bit)
- dead easy velocity control for a convincing natural-sounding bass performance! Playing hard: note with more "Precision" Attack / playing soft: slide tone
- clever script: Mod-wheel for SUSTAIN/ black "c" for STOPing sustain with humanized bass noise.
- Mix-ready (you get what you hear)
- Straight Into Tape (15 IPS)
