Based on the same combination of multisampling and Neptune pitch-shifting, the Neptune Electric Bass ReFill is designed to be used together with its electric guitar brother and will get your LOW-end needs covered on everything from warm and mellow bottom feeders to dark metallic growls. The additional slap and ghost-slap articulations also make the Neptune Electric Bass ReFill a great tool for funky basslines. Proudly brought to you by Navi Retlav Studio and Odarmonix, the creators of the Transisthor Bass & Rhythm ReFill.
