DSmolken at the KVR Audio Forum posted about sampling his acoustic double bass (aka contrabass) and how to best use the samples. Two primary sets of samples are provided - arco (that's bowed) and pizz (plucked) - with the addition of various "noises". If you check out his performance video, on YouTube, you might see what these might be used for... also the start of the demos below.
Arco is 5 velocity layers with 2 round robins, pizz is 3 velocity layers with 3-4 round robins and noises have no velocity layers and sometimes have round robins.
