    It's such an idiomatic sound---IOW: if they had simply labelled the library 'The Best Fretless Lib You've Ever Heard', I would probably buy it right away.

    But if you attempt to label a library 'Jaco' or 'Bird' or 'Hendrix' or 'Ringo' for that matter, you gotta be SURE it can do that trick... not just sound very good.

    YMMV

    +1 on the Orange Tree Samples Jaco Bass, it's just a great fretless bass period

    I believe Greg sampled a Jaco bass, and he's a huge fan of his and made this as a tribute to Jaco as well. (...I think)

    I don't think you can get 100% Jaco, unless you can get Jaco himself sampled, and that's in the realm of never going to happen.

    Anyways, I have it. I think it's a very nicely done fretless bass - I highly recommend it

    Trilians Jaco is still my all time favourite sampled fretless-it just works.
    And with all the cool layering capabilities in Trilian its a piece of cake to create all sorts of useful and interesting variations from it.
    Definetly my first choice when i need THAT sound.

    Hey, thanks Aaron, that means a lot to me coming from a fellow sample developer!

    Yes, it's a Jaco replica bass--I even used his favorite type and gauge of strings.

    Of course, it naturally won't sound 100% Jaco, since tone happens in the fingers, not just in the bass. So I got as close as I could to his tone, but regardless, what you end up is a versatile fretless bass sample library that's realistic and easy to play.

    I even included some amp/cab impulses built in the interface, so you just load it up and play!
