A good bassline is one of the cornerstones of many a great track (hence our recent celebration of the best basslines of all time), but if yours aren't quite up to scratch, this week's SampleRadar could provide some inspiration.
Many of the sounds in this collection move away from the vanilla bass tone, being heavily processed to give them extra bite and edge
What you need to know
The samples are split into two folders: Live bass Biz and Low-end FX.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The extreme bass samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
