Jeff - I do have some bowed performances from the same recording session, both with and without vibrato. However, simulating the performances of an orchestral bass is a daunting task since there are a lot of nuances within the dynamic range of the instrument, not to mention tremolos and trills. That being said, I am looking into the possibility of doing a second version of the jazz standup bass set, with variations of each articulation so you're not hearing the same sample each time. I am hoping to upload a version with 4 or more performances of the normal pizzicato and at least 2 for the finger and Bartok stops. If this does not prove too cumbersome for FreeSound's file system, then I'll consider adding in the bowed performances.
So glad you liked the pack - thanks for your feedback!
This is one of the best recorded/edited packs on freesound. I'll definitely be using it. You don't even get some of these articulations in commercial products. If you ever get a chance to do bowed bass, that would easily make this the best, and most complete, free double-bass package.
Thank you for this pack - I played double bass thru college and I must say you have achieved some very clean samples with a good tone. Hearing those rumbling undertones of the bass' body makes it sound so real to me. Great job!
Oh, it's unbeliavable work that You have done! So many samples and so great quality. I am speechless.
Dear PJCcohen, I've noticed and heard some little sound of the pedal at the recordings (like John Bonham had). I can share how it could be made very simple. There is a graphite lubricant and a gun oil (yes, for a hunters' guns).
Graphite lubricant uses even at an airplanes' moving parts and heavy machines. I could say that this lubricant is eternal. Gun oil (if you want, I could present it to You by sending from Russia) is very useful for us, drummers. Its gliding properties are incredible. Both of these lubricants together gives very very good resuld. My double pedal is silent at night now;)
Now I making the bank of samples to add to my Yamaha DTX + MIDI-controller, where samples at Reaper's Omni5000 synth will be adding through the computer to the own Yamaha's sounding.
Where I shall finish this work, I can share with You by this samples' bank. I'll be doing all work by myshelf to reach the best result that could be. There will be cowbells (I need more at this moment), splashes (I have some, but need more interesting sounds like Gavin Harrison have), claps, chihas, crashes and some FXes.
