    Thanks Kip.

    Have you tried any Mingus with your new bass? I know you wouldn't be able to post it publicly, but maybe post your impressions of how well it would handle his playing? I've been looking for the Charlie Mingus sound for a while.

    Or do what you did with "Tunisia". Do something similar to a Mingus tune, but deviate enough to avoid lawsuit...

    Alan, this new acoustic upright bass is extremely well suited for Charlie Mingus style music. Personally I play many forms of jazz music, in addition to many other music styles as well, and the Mingus style is among those forms of jazz music that I love to play.

    I had a selfish motive in producing "THE BASS" because I wanted an acoustic upright bass to perfectly fit the sound I like to hear on a bass with gut strings rather than steel strings. No other sampled acoustic upright basses that are available have the right sound. I am extremely well pleased with the sound of THE BASS from Bardstown Audio because it definitely has the precise sound for all jazz music where an acoustic bass is appropriate. Personally I play piano, vibes, marimba, acoustic and electric archtop jazz guitar, classical guitar, accordion, drum set, and percussion instruments. Acoustic bass is one instrument that I have not mastered, so I am extremely pleased to have this new 24 bit 96k sampled acoustic upright bass in my collection of instruments. It most definitely has the holy grail sound for an acoustic upright bass.

    "The Bass" from Bardstown Audio is extremely well suited for all jazz music (including Mingus) where an acoustic upright bass is appropriate, swing, latin, rockabilly, pop, western swing, country, bluegrass, ethnic, and 60's style folk music.

    Sharmy, thanks so much for your compliments and wishes!

    A friend of mine in Louisville (John Bizianes) played and sequenced Tunisia. The other demo was from a "canned" midi sequence from PG Music's "Jazz Pianist."

    There are no articulations such as slides on THE BASS. The reason I don't sample such things is because the user would have to have the precise tempo in their music that these articulations were sample recorded at in order for such articulations to sound acceptable, and at best these type of articulations tend to sound rather cheesy. The musician in me when doing my own personal music does not like to have to mess around with such articulations and technical things on sampled instruments such as key switching, etc. I like to be able to sit down at a keyboard and just play music without having to get technical. I designed and programmed THE BASS to be most playable and realistic just by playing straight from the keyboard controller.
