Just curious about something. I have a string bass instrument in one of my libraries, with several "damped" articulations. wondering how a real bass player gets that sound and, in particular, how much time and effort it requires.
I assume that switching between damped and un-damped notes is not an issue if there is a rest between them. What I am less clear about is whether moderately fast runs can be played with the strings damped. Again, my uninformed assumption is to not use the damped articulation for long or relatively fast-moving bass lines. But, if I'm wrong, I think I might want to use it for such a passage in one of my pieces.
