Where can I find Upright Bass Slap samples?
« on: August 15, 2015, 04:16:45 »
I have searched everywhere I can imagine and I haven't found a sample of an Upright Bass (Double Bass/ Contra Bass) slap.
It sounds totally different from a normal slap bass - it sounds more like a "click".

My bandwidth prevents me from downloading Gbs of samplepacks. Does anyone know where I can get such a sample?

I'm pretty sure Spectrasonics Trilian has one. Not sure if that's what you're looking for though.

You're right. I think for that price, I could get a real-life band to play the piece.

I should have mentioned that I am looking for a free sample :)

You could try the BBC Philharmonia free orchestral samples pack* at https://archive.org/download/orchestral_samples - the "STRINGS" archive has some contrabass samples - the "arcocollegnobattuto" folder could be what you are looking for, if I'm not mistaken.


* This sample pack is advertised on our "Top Picks" page which can be reached through the "Web Resources" entry in OpenMPT's Help menu - go check it out for more interesting sample sources!
