Wilkinson Audio has announced that its ZomBass2, a bass guitar virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt, is now available for free for a limited time.
ZomBass2 is a sample-based virtual instrument, taking the sounds of a Fender American Standard Jazz Bass with Pro-Steel strings. The sample library features four velocities of pick strength and intelligent alternate picking technique. The guitar bass was sampled down to A#0 (will pitch shift down to E).
Both custom bends and custom slide speed can be controlled by MIDI via pitch wheel. Also to change articulations, ZomBass2 takes advantage of Kontakt key switching feature, and they include Hammer-On/Tapping, Muting (up/down/alt), Harmonics, Fret Noise, Slide Up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12 frets and Slide Down 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12 frets.
ZomBass2 is offered as a Christmas gift, and will stay free until January 01, 2016. ZomBass2 works with full versions of Kontakt 4 (fully updated) and 5.
