Oomind Studio has released Hardy Bass, a free virtual bass instrument for NI Kontakt.
With Hardy Bass, Oomind Studio tries to recreate the real sound of a bass, of course, by taking into account the human factor. For this reason, this bass comes with round-robin layers and pick articulations (up and down) controlled by key switches. Further, Hardy Bass has a three band EQ, configured to modify the sound where this particular instrument requires.
With a huge note range (A-2 to G3), this virtual bass instrument is really good for many genres including pop, rock, metal, but also electronic music styles.
Hardy Bass requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt v6.4.2 and above (not compatible with Kontakt Player). It is available for instant download at Oomind Studio.
Another cool bass plugin is Muted Bass Lite by Prisma Sounds.
