Today, sample library mega outlet Loopmasters, has unveiled their very first synth, which they've called Bass Master. The company has created what the feel to be the ultimate bass creating synth, in an easy to use interface. Using two layers, the curated set of 217 waveforms (that’s almost 50,000 possible combinations), taken from a mixture of legendary hardware classics and cutting-edge synth science.
The onboard filter offers 13 filter types: including a range of low-pass, band-pass and high-pass models, ladder filters and a comb filter. The filter envelope (ADSR) and LFO (including Random and Drift shapes) give Bass Master even more sculpting power. Bass Master also offers up three effects: Distortion has five algorithms with Drive and Colour, for warming saturation or drastic transformation; Stereo Chorus has four algorithms with Amount and Rate, for slight thickening or all-out stereo widening; Reverb Send contains Bright, Mid and Dark algorithms with Level and Size controls, to add space to sounds.
The Frequency Booster heats up the signal in three bands to subtly shape or drastically overcook the sound. Direct out allows you to keep the sub layer unfiltered and clean for a solid foundation. Global controls include Legato and Portamento settings with Glide time, and a pitch-bend range of up to 12 semitones.
