Sparkletop Bass

A sparkletop Fender Bass recorded through a UAD 6176...

The story

This sparkletop Fender Bass has been sitting in the corner of the studio gathering dust for many years.
Being new to KONTAKT sampling, I thought this might be a good place to start.
I’ve recorded 3 layers (p, mf and f) as well as a set of release triggers.
Apologies as I’m still trying to figure out how to incorporate the release triggers into the KONTAKT instrument.
Recorded direct through a UAD 6176. Because it has a smallish range I sampled each note.

I’m enjoying making my own sample sets and would appreciate any suggestions for improvement!

    I'm always looking for basses that don't get lost in a mix and this often does the trick. Nicely percussive and good for faster parts.
