Ample Bass P Lite II (ABPL) is a free lite version of ABP, recorded on a Fender Precision Bass.
  • DFD (Direct from disk).
  • Rich Fingering Noise - more vivid and realistic.
  • Each Cycle & Rhombic Sampling structure - Separate sample cycle for each note and velocity layer to improve sample utilization.
  • New technology: Auto Buzz system.
  • CPC (Customized Parameters Control), any button knob etc can be controlled by MIDI CC or Automation.
  • Poly Legato.
  • Slide Smoother.
  • Open String First Function.
  • Manual vibrato wheel designed specifically for string instruments.
  • Capo - Transpose without need to modify midi.
The Tab Player can load and play several prevalent guitarass tablature file formats. Users can load, display and playback any specific track inside a tablature file. When used in DAWs, the Tab Player also allows users to export the tablature as an audio file.

The Tab Player supports all the fingering, looping, chords, articulations and other markers in the loaded tablature. Supported articulations include: Strum, Natural Harmonic, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On/Pull Off, Trill, Bend, Tremolo Bar, Legato Slide, Slide In, Slide Out, Vibrato, Tremolo Picking, Palm Mute, Slapping, Popping, Tapping, Let Ring, Staccato, Dead Note, Grace Note, Ghost Note, Accentuated Note, Fade In, etc.

As a built-in function, the Tab Player works seamlessly with the Ample Sound instrument engine, which has extremely customized guitar playing logic so as to model a real world guitar being played. The Tab Player can even judge on its own to automatically add some refining articulations when it thinks it is appropriate, such as slapping on strings or body, or other realistic and indispensable noises.

If I start the app ASHost I get the stand alone version, which works fine, but obviously I would like to use it as a plug-in in Garageband. Anyone any ideas on how to get this done?

Hi. Seems great vst. I downloaded 4 ample vst's from here. This bass plugin was the only one working though. I uninstalled and installed all of them again hoping to get all of them working but now none of them works. Do not know how to activate it. I tried multiple locations to install. Tried copying vst.dll filles into my Cubase vst pluging folder. Not sure what to do

Bon plugin de basse ! Lorsque on importe des fichiers midi dans le séquenceur, il arrive parfois que certaines notes ne sonnent pas, en fait il faut ouvrir l'éditeur de midi, sélectionner toutes les notes et les monter d'un octave (maj+flèche vers le haut).

Was it because of some security concern or was it a technical issue? If it was because of a security concern, try it again and choose to download it anyway. This happens with a lot of software. I think our virus protection are too broad in what they do not recognize. I get a dialog box that does not say 'proceed anyway.' But it does show 'Other Information" and I click on that. There you are given options, one being, download anyway....or some verbage like that.

Yo trabajo con MIDI para dejarme llevar por las notas musicales o patrones de la plantilla MIDI cuando lo asocio con FL Studio para hacer covers, y remplazo los instrumentos MIDI con los plugins como BooBass para bajo o Sytrus propios de FL como cuando se necesitan trompetas y también uso mucho LUXUNIX para violines, guitarras o cualquier instrumento, también uso sonidos WAVE que se asemejen a tal cual instrumento.

I set it in settings and it just doesn't work, the second I go back in to the settings tab its is reset to FileNotFound. I see a lot of people asking this question and not a single useful answer, other than this link https://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=245&t=434483&p=8013310#p8013310 .

First I double click ABPL_2_3_1_Complete_Installer.pkg but mac won't let me install. Then I go to privacy & security settings and allow this installation. The Installer pops up. I click continue 2x and click Agree. At "Custom Install on Macintosh" I click Continue. Then Install. Then enter mac password or finderprint. "Installation was successful". Then in Ableton live Lite 11, go to Live/ Preferences/ Plug-ins. Then I click "rescan" and activate the "Use VST 2 Plug-in System Folders" and also the one under "Use VST2 Plug-In Custom Folder". Then back in min Ableton screen on the left panel I click Plug-ins (between MIDI effects and Clips) and there I see AGML and ABPL. Double click will open the instrument.

This error doesn't matter - if you have a newer version it will run it fine and the VST is already installed. Continue past it and click finish, the VST will be in C:Program FilesSteinberg or wherever you chose to install.

This install package isn't signed, so you need to open System Preferences on you MAC and then open the Security & Privacy app. You should see the option to open up this app anyway even though it isn't trusted by your Mac.

Robert make sure the "echo on" feature is not enabled on that midi track. The echo on is a great tool when you want to play several synths etc from one midi track. But generally speaking you deselect this option.

This ABPL II thing could have a good plugin if it wasn't for: - The user interface is too small, on a 4k 32" monitor it has 1,7mm tall letters... - It craps the hell out of the anti-malware because it installs worthless fonts in the Windows folder and wants access to 'My Documents' to drop a bunch of tunes and presets. - This thing has a lot of complicated options that makes it difficult to use. - The integrated keyboard maps only qwerty which merely represents 15% of all keyboards in the world. - Did I mention the lower notes are missing? - The activationmanager.exe is not necessary for a free tool.

To the people complaining that the "low notes are missing", yes, but the lowest note available on this plugin is the exact same as the lowest note on a standard tuned 4 string bass
DUDE Nov 16 2020

Lowest notes missing is not a problem because you can record in the low notes on this plugin and then transpose down one octave and you get the low notes missing on this vst. Problem solved.

It's only an error for the Visual C++ program. It won't affect the actual installation and the VST should already be installed. The Visual C++ is giving an error because your computer already has a better version so there's no need to install an older version.

*lots of tech and PC repair experience* this is usually fixed by running Windows Update if you want to waste minimal time and have a higher chance of results. you can manually download the latest C++ redist on Microsoft's site, but Win Update will usually fix that for you because it's usually an out-of-date or otherwise version as chances are you have a fairly recent C++ redist. For the average use case a Windows Update will install the necessary stuff ^^

every time i download the installer, i cant extract the file and it wont open in ableton, any ideas??
Me Aug 17 2021
Aug 17 2021
I use Windows, and I don't use Ableton, so this may not apply, but this is how I installed it. It worked for me... 1- Download WIN 64 VST. 2- Run ABPL_2_3_1_Complete_Installer.exe (it should ask for a path to extract files). 3- After it finishes extracting, it should automatically start the installer. If it doesn't, go to the folder that it was extracted to and run ABPL_2_3_1_Complete_Installer.exe in that folder. 4- It will ask if you want it to make changes to your PC. Choose Yes. 5- Follow the instructions in the installer, including choosing the path for Ample Bass, the VST location, and the sample location. 6- Hopefully it should work?

Installed in Dorico Elements. It sounds great but it thinks it's a guitar. when playing from the score (bass clef) it's low E has to entered as low E on a 6 string guitar , an octave higher than it should be.

You can detune it yourself in the DAW itself. for example, in Ableton you can just go to the midi and pitchshift it

Bounce midi to a wave track and then open the wave track in something like NewTone pitch fix, drop it down manually and boom!...

You turn the tuning keys. ABPL is a cut down version of ABP. Regarding this Lite version you can drop to D1. The full version will go to B0 : More info here in the overview section: https://www.amplesound.net/en/pro-pd.asp?id=19

This bass isn't really good for being free, this bass is really good period! Ran this through a reamper and the rest was history. Between emulators and reamping (analog or otherwise), this is a good value for any studio. Now if only a 5 or 6 string version was available for free as well.

That may have something to do with your DAW. If your DAW is 64-bit (like Cakewalk by Bandlab), it won't be able to load 32-bit VSTs without a bit bridge (which most DAWs have built-in). Maybe your DAW's bridge is buggy?

Best free bass guitar VST. You can detune the lower E to a D and add some realism with fret sound, "slapppy" sound when full velocity and some buzz. Totally worth it for rock, blues, pop and even metal if you use an amp simulator. Totally worth it!

Yes, there may be no low notes, but the sound quality is miles ahead of other free electric bass plugins. Try detuning as much as possible, and if that is not enough, perhaps use a pitch shifter.

Lovely sounding bass. Nice tone straight out the box and the buzz controls can be tweaked to add some realism. Standard range is limited to E1 (since this is a 4 string bass after all), but can be tuned down to D1 and this is low enough for most uses. Personally don't think this VST deserves to be slammed because of the missing lowest notes, if they're needed that much then there's plenty of 5 string basses out there.

Great plugin, but the bender wheel is stuck ever so slightly below 0. I removed all automation and anything that might affect it. I even added automation to set it to 0 every time the track starts, but each time it starts it goes back to that little bit below and I have to put it back manually, then it goes back again if i start it again.

If this had all the notes, it would rock. But, 'cos it doesn't, it therefore doesn't. Two better bass VSTs are OMB2 http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=OMB2&id=2493 and Bigcat's sampled Rickenbacker 4001 - fingered version at http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=Project16_Fingered_Bass&id=2319 and picked version at http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=Project16_Picked_Bass&id=2320 I use both at the same time (on two different tracks) and combine to make a great authentic classic Rick sounds - the Bigcat Rick VSTs were sampled from a real Rick 4001 bass.

Use a Pitch Shifter to solve the octave/note issue. I recommend "Pitchproof" Set the pitch value to -12 and the detune to .200 and you will have a fully functioning Bass.
