  • DFD (Direct from disk).
  • Rich Fingering Noise - more vivid and realistic.
  • Each Cycle & Rhombic Sampling structure - Separate sample cycle for each note and velocity layer to improve sample utilization.
  • New technology: Auto Buzz system.
  • CPC (Customized Parameters Control), any button knob etc can be controlled by MIDI CC or Automation.
  • Poly Legato.
  • Slide Smoother.
  • Open String First Function.
  • Manual vibrato wheel designed specifically for string instruments.
  • Capo - Transpose without need to modify midi.
The Tab Player can load and play several prevalent guitarass tablature file formats. Users can load, display and playback any specific track inside a tablature file. When used in DAWs, the Tab Player also allows users to export the tablature as an audio file.

The Tab Player supports all the fingering, looping, chords, articulations and other markers in the loaded tablature. Supported articulations include: Strum, Natural Harmonic, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On/Pull Off, Trill, Bend, Tremolo Bar, Legato Slide, Slide In, Slide Out, Vibrato, Tremolo Picking, Palm Mute, Slapping, Popping, Tapping, Let Ring, Staccato, Dead Note, Grace Note, Ghost Note, Accentuated Note, Fade In, etc.

As a built-in function, the Tab Player works seamlessly with the Ample Sound instrument engine, which has extremely customized guitar playing logic so as to model a real world guitar being played. The Tab Player can even judge on its own to automatically add some refining articulations when it thinks it is appropriate, such as slapping on strings or body, or other realistic and indispensable noises.

I tried to use this plugin, however, the only problem I have is that my anti-virus program is freaking out and won't let me download and install it. Any suggestions?

Installed in Dorico Elements. It sounds great but it thinks it's a guitar. when playing from the score (bass clef) it's low E has to entered as low E on a 6 string guitar , an octave higher than it should be.

Just so you know, you do NOT get the all the articulations in the description above, you only get Sustain and Hammer On. Which is cool, it's a freebie, but just so you know!!

You turn the tuning keys. ABPL is a cut down version of ABP. Regarding this Lite version you can drop to D1. The full version will go to B0 : More info here in the overview section: https://www.amplesound.net/en/pro-pd.asp?id=19

This bass isn't really good for being free, this bass is really good period! Ran this through a reamper and the rest was history. Between emulators and reamping (analog or otherwise), this is a good value for any studio. Now if only a 5 or 6 string version was available for free as well.

Best free bass guitar VST. You can detune the lower E to a D and add some realism with fret sound, "slapppy" sound when full velocity and some buzz. Totally worth it for rock, blues, pop and even metal if you use an amp simulator. Totally worth it!

Yes, there may be no low notes, but the sound quality is miles ahead of other free electric bass plugins. Try detuning as much as possible, and if that is not enough, perhaps use a pitch shifter.

Lovely sounding bass. Nice tone straight out the box and the buzz controls can be tweaked to add some realism. Standard range is limited to E1 (since this is a 4 string bass after all), but can be tuned down to D1 and this is low enough for most uses. Personally don't think this VST deserves to be slammed because of the missing lowest notes, if they're needed that much then there's plenty of 5 string basses out there.

Great plugin, but the bender wheel is stuck ever so slightly below 0. I removed all automation and anything that might affect it. I even added automation to set it to 0 every time the track starts, but each time it starts it goes back to that little bit below and I have to put it back manually, then it goes back again if i start it again.

Most good instruments that use real samples are going to be at least this size, especially guitars, just look at the size of any Kontakt library.

How does the plugin help? wouldn't that give you the sound an octave higher, rather than lower?
Bass Lover Mar 22 2017

If this had all the notes, it would rock. But, 'cos it doesn't, it therefore doesn't. Two better bass VSTs are OMB2 http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=OMB2&id=2493 and Bigcat's sampled Rickenbacker 4001 - fingered version at http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=Project16_Fingered_Bass&id=2319 and picked version at http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=Project16_Picked_Bass&id=2320 I use both at the same time (on two different tracks) and combine to make a great authentic classic Rick sounds - the Bigcat Rick VSTs were sampled from a real Rick 4001 bass.

If you read their website, and look at the comparison table for this item, the lower 2 octaves are missing from this free version. the most important notes on a bass guitar are missing.

@FromRussia - How? please elaborate on how the missing notes, and which are most important notes on a bass guitar, can be solved? if you resample, it won't sound right... it will sound horrible. so if you have a plan that works, pls share.

Use a Pitch Shifter to solve the octave/note issue. I recommend "Pitchproof" Set the pitch value to -12 and the detune to .200 and you will have a fully functioning Bass.

Thank you music producer this changed the game for me in less than 5 minutes I already own a Fender Dimension Bass, but this will be alot quicker and sounds damn near identical to playing a bass live with this modification. These 2 free plugins combined is definitely worth a few hundred dollars as a paid plugin
