    Sampled Bass Guitar that Can Do Drop D Tuning?

    Hello all,

    As the title of this thread implies, I am seeking a sampled electric bass guitar that can do drop D tuning. Is there anything out there? I've looked at the Chris Hein website and the Scarbee website, but neither seems to indicate if unusual tunings were sampled. Any insights would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    TWND

    Hi TWND,

    The lowest note in CHG Basses is E2 stretched down to B1.
    Don't know what you mean by 'unusual' tuning?

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry if my post wasn't clear. I am more of a guitar player than a keyboard player and I'm just now getting into sampled instruments and what not.

    I am working on a project with an individual who plays guitar in drop D tuning and I am seeking a bass library that includes samples of the E string string dropped down and tuned to D. It sounds like your library can get down to D, but that the D is actually just a pitch adjusted sample of the E. Does this effect the sound quality?

    I hope some developer will do an extensive library/virtual instrument with a Fender Precision bass, which has probably been the bass of choice on 85% of the hit recordings in the Rock era, rather than the basses many seem to be choosing.

    Unless things are quite different in Europe than the U.S., which I concede is possible, then I am frankly bewildered by these choices.

    That would be Scarbee's Blue Bass, yet to be released.

    Here's all we can say right now... "If you don't dig his sound, you may wish to check out other bass products".

    Thanks for the heads up. Guess I'll be waiting. I suppose I should finally go ahead and purchase Kontakt 3 in the meantime.

    All of the soundsets in ManyBass are sampled down to a low B--the samples aren't just stretched.
