Product Description

A collection of thundering bass loops from reggae to R&B, swing jazz to alternative rock, techno to tuba.

This collection contains both classic basslines (the 12 bar files will let you put together some excellent blues by compiling lines out of the specifically named '1,' '5', and '4' riffs - you don't even have to listen to them!) and more inspirational, challenging playing, especially in the 'prog' and 'alternative' rock categories.

Files center around five instrument types: electric bass guitar, upright (acoustic) bass, synth bass, tuba, and piano bass, each reflecting the player and controller used in their creation.

There's a wide range of styles, including blues, country, disco, funk, hip hop, dance, jazz, reggae, Latin, and rock plus there's some very useful incidental files such as turnarounds, slides, classic lines, and shuffles.

SMF Type 1 file format. Guaranteed to work with all DAWs and hardware sequencers that can load/import .MIDs: Cubase (all versions, including LE and Sequel), GarageBand, Pro Tools, Logic, Acid, Reason, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Live, and Cakewalk (all version), and with all VSTs or synth sound sources.

Motif Versions

Automatically included in the download are versions of this product saved in 'Pattern' format for all Motif models from the Motif ES+. When you load the library into a Motif you will get a series of Patterns named according to type (Disco, Reggae etc). The first track in each file contains a guide drum loop so that you can audition the bass lines in context. On the Motif ES, files will load with just the drum and an initial bass track active and all other tracks muted. Hit the play button and you'll hear the beat and it will loop automatically. Select other Tracks to hear each in turn. On the Motif XS/XF, mutes are not saved so make sure you manually mute all tracks except one in order not to hear a somewhat unattractive avalanche of basslines!

As Motif Pattern tracks, loops can quickly be re-voiced, played at any tempo, cut and caste them into existing Songs or Patterns, or just be inspiring for you to jam along with.

There is a Using Twiddly.Bits on Motif video. This was made on and initially for the Motif ES but since the sequencer engine in Motif has not substantially changed since the Motif ES the principles and opportunities are exactly the same.
