CAKEWALK ANNOUNCES NEW GIBSON ELECTRIC BASS EXPANSION PACK
Cakewalk announces the new Gibson Bass Collection Expansion Pack at NAMM 2016. Designed for Cakewalk’s Rapture Pro and Rapture Session virtual instruments and sampled by sound engineer Craig Anderton, the collection combines the warm sound of three unique Gibson electric basses. The 28 programs also offer keyswitching to toggle between pick and finger attacks.
The Midtown Bass captures the distinctive clarity and depth of the semi-hollow body bass, which is made from routed solid woods rather than laminating woods around a solid centre block. Its bright, punchy sound is ideal for pop/rock. For warm, raw power, the Les Paul Standard Bass features the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body for richness with a solid carved maple top for ‘snap,’ topped off by Thunderbird Bass pickups with ceramic magnets for ‘punch.’ Finally, Cakewalk’s Dimension Pro synth, the EB 5-String Bass 2.0, with its eight unique pickup combinations, now takes full advantage of Rapture Pro/Session’s advanced features.
