Bass City – Free Synth Bass Samples!
Proudly presenting Bass City – A Free Synth Bass Sample Library by 99 Sounds and PatchArena. Bass City is a free collection of vintage bass synthesizer samples, availible in Kontakt .NKI and .sfz Sforzando format. Designed for any type of electronic music production. EDM, old school, Electro, House, Dub, Techno, you name it.
This sample pack started as a collaboration between 99 Sounds and PatchArena. We started by sampling a few bass sounds from our favorite vintage synthesizers. We kept on sampling more and more custom bass patches. It started with our favorite raw FM Bass sounds from the one and only TX81Z 4 op FM rack mount synth. Then sampling excellent juicy tones of the Korg Poly800 and EX800. The stacking oscillators of the 800 series going thru the analog filters sound perfectly sweet. The built in chorus on these two units is absolutely superb. After months sampling and playing these bass instruments we selected our favorites and combined them into Bass City.
Special thanks to Tomislav Zlatic from 99 Sounds for all of his effort on this collection. The cover art and the custom NKI programming is top notch. You should check out some of the other quality sample collections being curated by Tomislav here:
