Description: 66-Basses is the first edition in our new Legion series, a line of instruments designed to meet the special needs of epic cinematic music.
66-Basses is the largest symphony bass ensemble ever recorded. Once in a lifetime, 66 professional double bass players gathered in a large modern concert hall. We removed all the chairs and partitions in the room to achieve maximum reverberation of over 3 seconds. This is the same room we used for Majestica, Lacrimosa, Acoustic Grand Ensembles, CAGE and many other instruments.
66-Basses is a professional cinematic bass. We assembled a 66-piece symphonic double bass ensemble in our favorite modern recording hall, Zlin. The ensemble was created by bringing together professional bassists from 9 different European countries.
66-Basses contains all the standard articulations (sustain types, short notes, arcs, effects, etc.) and a large selection of new articulations (dynamic waves, BPM-based ostinato, Bridge FX, etc.).
We’ve also spent the best part of a month developing 50 unique analog synthesized ensembles. There are 10 different microphones in the library, including the new Binural microphone, which gives you a special audio experience for virtual reality sessions. 4 microphones (Mixed, Decca, Far and Wide) and 5 close microphones for more detailed sound.
66-Basses also features a new 3D user interface with a new 4-part modulation engine and a whole dedicated BPM-based Ostinatos section.
