    Evolution Flatwound Bass features a vintage P-style electric bass equipped with flatwound strings for a deep, rich tone.

    We developed the library in collaboration with Rosewood Recording Company, one of Utah's most venerable recording studios. Guy Randle, the owner and recording engineer at Rosewood Recording Company, incorporated analog audio equipment to skillfully sculpt and emphasize the rich tonal qualities of the bass, available as an enhanced signal provided in addition to the as-recorded signal.

    For the sampling session, Guy Randle brought in veteran bassist Rob Honey. As a recording session player, Rob Honey has appeared on a large number of CDs, motion picture soundtracks, and television commercials and programs. He toured with the Donny and Marie show and is the bass player with the band Enoch Train. Rob is also an accomplished arranger and songwriter. He was a staff writer with Starstruck Writer's Group—Reba McEntire's publishing company. He has had songs recorded by Diamond Rio, Faith Hill and many LDS market artists. His song "Norma Jean Riley" was a number one hit and a Radio & Record country song of the year.

    Evolution Flatwound Bass is outfitted with our Evolution guitar engine which provides you with a wealth of appointments: customizable mapping system, configuration for the instrument's tone and playability, and a robust effects suite. The library includes many factory presets for ready-to-use classic and modern bass tones that fit right into the mix.

    Yes lovely! Can we expect a transition from the older basses as well using the newer engine?

    I've got three OTS basses now - still waiting for the promised update to the 'Jaco'.

    I was starting to wonder when this would be released as it had been a while since the 10th anniversary. Now I see you've been busy making bass cabinet IRs, which explains the extended timeframe. It sounds fantastic. Looking forward to adding this to the palette.

    I just posted this reply to a similar question on Facebook:

    Once a fretless sliding system is implemented, CoreBass Pear and Iconic Bass Jaco would both work fine in the engine. Actually I already have a preliminary version of Iconic Bass Jaco already playable. However, Cherry Electric Bass doesn't have the strings separately recorded to really take advantage of the string/fret selection. I was thinking of trying it anyway just due to the built-in effects and mapping system, but I kinda want to just resample the same bass (and this time record both pickups as separate signals, too).

    A revamped or newly sampled upright would be amazing!!! I’d love to have an interface for pear that’s more like the current one and maybe some nice new slapped and popped articulations for rockabilly type things.
