Acoustic Bass Soundfont

• Jul 25, 2022 - 02:03

I am currently using the Acoustic Bass in MuseScore_General.sf3 for some backing tracks - see sample mp3
It is quite good, but it has a few "dead" notes and sometimes sounds a bit restricted rather than an open free breathing shaped resonance.

Any good suggestions?

Let me take a look at my annoying and time-consuming archive. If I can find suitable samples, I can try to make one. However, I don't know if there are quality (and Hi-Fi) Acoustic-Bass samples. Most of the ones I've heard so far are boringly dull.
Any soundfont's instrument can be used in large orchestral works, because it's multi-instrumental and the timbres somehow match. But in small group works, it is very important that each instrument is in harmony with the others in terms of timbre.

I've got a good free bass and drums soundfont on my site. The acoustic bass is really nice (4 velocity layers) with a nice rattle when played hard.
