This is a solid body bass guitar that has a full deep sound. There is not much middle to it which makes it less defined than a lot of basses but it does suit some music very well. There is a choice of sample sets to choose from in this gigasample. Direct or through my j-station (which makes it sound more like its through an amp), or a mix somewhere between the two.
The j-station samples are the same direct samples routed out and through the j-station and back in again, which is why it is possible to have a mix of the two. The J-Station samples make a distorted beefy bass sound which can be useful for some music i.e. 3 piece bands where tha bass fills out instead of a rhythm guitar or just for a more lo-fi bass sound. The direct samples are not so distorted and can be used in alot more styles of music. You can use a mix of the direct and J-Station samples to get the balance of dirt just right on one of the presets (using mod wheel 2 or cc13).
There is a preset that includes slaps and slides etc to help add some realism.
