I only recently got into sampling, initially from a few other sources, and then realized how far it could be taken after watching Christian’s channel. Since then I’ve been looking at everything around my house to see if I could capture, and create something truly unique and beautiful. I am completely new to this, but I’m hooked. I’m so grateful for this site and community.
Reviews for Bass Harmonic Chimes

Very nice bass with a unique character
There is a unique character in this instrument that I haven't found before in others, since the first note you play, you notice the nice sound design of it. There is a delay that makes this a Pad-Bass hybrid instrument.
The bassy harmonics you might need
This download will offer you a very well crafted instrument based on bass harmonics, but it also comes with these lovely additional little cute droplet voices that can spark your creativity and give a nice lively touch to your music. I wish there was an option to activate only those though, but you can kinda do that if you set the attack around the middle. Sometimes those chimes might appear to have a kind of clicky attack, especially when the sample loops, so you need to keep that in mind.
Bass harmonics, but so much more!
This sample pack is so much more than its title suggests. The bass harmonics are well recorded but they do have a bit of noise. The thing that makes this library really special IMHO is the inclusion of a special "layer:rev" which adds delay and reverb to the signal. The delay doesn't come across as delay, however, it comes across as a re-triggering of the sound, which is much more inspiring and fascinating. This library is definitely one of the most useful in this category, and a true hidden gem of the PB site!
A little torn on this
Im a bit torn on this. as a guitar player i think slides are so important in bass playing and how certain notes are accented naturally. Acctually trying to play a baseline with this instrument would sound very robotic and un natural to me, although there are genres where this kind of sound might be more welcome. I agree with everyone else that the effects are really where this thing shines. You dont often think to use delay type effects on bass but the result here is really cool and unique. Reminds me of last week, my friend came over and wanted to check out some of the amps and ambient presets on guitar rig. My guitar was upstairs and my bass was downstairs so we played my bass through ambient effects. The result was way cooler than i ever imagined.
