What is it?

All instruments in the Reason Electric Basses ReFill were recorded using multiple microphones and dedicated bass amp setups, giving you full control of your overall bass sound. Based on note for note Hypersampling, these basses come complete with bends, glissandos and fret noises, making them very responsive, and very much alive.

With a vast selection of instrument, mic and amplifier combinations to choose from, you can rest assured that the bass sound you are looking for can be found here.
