    First Scarbee Blue bass demo

    Hey,

    Just did a little demo with Blue Bass:

    I'm working on a vocal song too - but that takes a little more time.

    I bought it and it sounds great, especially through IK Multimedia's Ampeg SVX.

    I have gone through the manual and I see how to do slides between notes, but how do you do drops (slide down of a single note), as with Trilogy?

    Hi,

    You make drops same as as slide up.

    Go to ex fret 12, press sustain pedal and play attack note E2 then E1.
    The velocity of target note (E11) decide speed.
    Vel of attack note decide volume

    cheers

    I may be being thick here Thomas but are we talking about the same thing? I am talking about a drop off of a single pitch, not a slide down from one note to another.

    You mean a slide of 1 halfnote? You can slide any interval.

    You can also do pull-offs - that is done without using sustain-pedal.

    you just do pull-offs, hammer-ons by holding one key and then play 1,2 note down or up.

    You can even do corss-hammering using F0 keyswitch

    This is a terminology issue I am guessing. With Trilogy, if you hit certain notes hard they drop off the note or slide up and then down at a non-specific pitch, much like manually using a pitch bend wheel.

    I have to leave but a little later I will post the sound of one, unless someone here can kindly do so in the meantime. You can hear this a couple of seconds in in this Trilogy demo. It goes "bwwoom."

    ahh - I call them grace notes.

    You get them by playing 2 notes almost at same time.

    So to get a half-note grace note you play rapidly after each other C2 and C#2. Basically like a hammer-on but just faster.

    A whole note will be B1-C2.

    cheers

    Thomas I know what grace notes are, I have a degree in composition. If I play i.e. and F# just before a G and hold the G, that is a grace note. There are 2 distinct pitches and the transition happens quickly.

    In Trilogy, it starts on a note i.e. a D2 and falls down off it smoothly in an arc.
    Pitch bend seems to be the best way with Blue Bass to get what I am after, but it is a lot more work than Trilogy which does it automatically when you play a note at a velocity of 127.

    Nonetheless, this is a great sounding bass.
