Experience the most versatile bass sound with Music Man Stingray 5
Bass Ray5 features a Music Man Stingray 5 Bass. The first bass designed by Ernie Ball Music Man, the Stingray 5 was unveiled in 1987 and has been an industry standard for extended range basses ever since. With its powerful punchy sound, the added flexibility of additional pickups and a comfortably contoured body the Stingray 5 satisfies even the most demanding of players. The Stingray 5 was the first bass to feature active electronics and advancements such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss-rod system, and rock-solid bridge. T
Deeply sampled over 21GB uncompressed contents, over 7,600 samples, with multi velocity layers and round robin samples, Bass Ray5 aims at precisely reproducing the versatile and modern bass sound. To achieve the best possible sound, it took our team several months to prepare the sample recording. We have recorded left and right channels with different amps so this gives users more flexibility in shaping their final sound.
Bass Ray5 covers pick and lead finger playing methods. What’s more, we also sampled as much as techniques available on this Bass, including Mute, Sustain, Slides, Bend, Falls, Hammer On and Pull Off.
Bass Ray5 includes VStomp Effect System, which provides an exciting new way for guitar sound. VStomp includes many modelled amps and cabs. With it, you can freely combine different top notch amps and cabs, then forge your unique guitar sound. With this powerful system, you will have a freedom in sound possibilities you can never imagine before.
The Most Powerful Effect System add unlimited sound possibilities to the final sound
Collaborate with Hotone, now we can offer the full version of VStomp effect system on Bass Ray5. VStomp is based on Hotone’s proprietary CDCM system, VStomp delivers organic, studio-grade sound quality and the exact character of legendary amplifiers.
Unlike mainstream modeling methods based on the characteristics of a certain “state" of the circuitry, which just “comes close" to the modeled sound, VStomp employs a complex system based on dynamic feature modeling. In this matrix, every single circuit component is alive and performs like its original.
Behind VStomp is Hotone’s CDCM (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling) system. CDCM is built on a complex dynamic variation matrix, able to realistically express every detailed change that occurs during the operational process of actual circuitry. This matrix will adjust its own modeling parameters and even framework based on the instrument input signal range, signal frequency, knob position, the instrument’s own impedance, and other variable parameters, all to achieve the closest possible characteristics of actual modeled circuitry.
The VStomp comes with some extra trick features: an impulse response (IR) loader and a noise gate. With the IR loader, you can load your favorite cab “images" for further tone shaping. The noise gate helps you keep your sound pristine, which makes it great for studio production.
VStomp has over 26 amps and 20 cabs waiting for you to use. The famous brands in VStomp including Marshell, Fender, Ampeg, Carvin, Mesa, Peavey, Roland, Orange and many more. Also it has multi effect/FX which could enable users to fudge a whole FX chain to get the unique sound .
VStomp also can run as standalone or a separated effect plugins. This gives its users more possibilities in usage, such as processing your recorded guitar track with VStomp.
Modelling Legato gives user a lot of more freedom than before
You can start legato or glissando anytime you want, on any technique it has, not limited to the patch that has sampled legato. Also, you can change timbre in real times as a modeled instrument. With modeling technology, you can get an instrument that sound keeps changing, not the fixed or dead as a sampled instrument. In audio demos, you can clearly hear how the instrument changes through time; give the sound unlimited possibilities and varieties.
Modelled Vibrato, Slides and Bends
We further expanded our technology to achieve more authentic sounds from sampling without sacrificing creative control. For perspective, this means starting with non-vibrato and then fading in vibrato sustain while changing depth and speed. Or, you can also change Slide or Bend speed in real time while setting different destination notes.
