Adam Monroe’s Upright Bass is a virtual instrument and bass sample library (24-bit, 44.1) that can work right in your DAW.
The purpose of this library was to find a balance between realistic low-frequency sound and a useful plug-in, so the articulations are “pre-recorded” rather than designed / programmed. Although a software simulator allows you to better control the game, nothing sounds better than live articulation.
When sampling this bass, we used the Shure SM81 stereo microphone pair in the near position, as well as the Neumann Tlm 102. During the mixing, it was decided that the SM81 together with the D112 could give the best overall tone.
Versions of VST, AU, and AAX include high-performance algorithms that have been improved with every new virtual instrument released by Adam Monroe Music. For example, the buffering algorithm is double buffering and multithreading, which means high buffering performance even on slower computers and even with less latency. The voices are stored and repeated in the C-Style array. Memory usage in the VST version is lower than in the (outdated) Kontakt version (70-130 MB). Versions of VST, AU and AAX now also include built-in support for 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz sample rates.
