Ample Sound is a relatively new company. I hadn’t heard of them until recently, and have since discovered that they make fantastic sounding software instruments. Guitars and basses are their specialty. The Yinyang ll is the latest addition to their collection of electric bass instruments.

Ample Bass Yinyang II

Ample Sound Yinyang Bass has an incredible sounding set of samples. And a nice broad palette of articulations accessed by a simple and elegant key switching system. The interface is set up with five panels, designed to easily access all the sound shaping features and parameters.

Noises, playing techniques, envelopes, and articulation switching is handled on the Main Panel. The Tab Panel is used to bring in preset patterns for Ample Bass Yinyang II to play. There are a variety of functions here to manage the files, as well as control their feel and timing. The FX Panel provides a variety of useful stomp box effects. The Edit Panel is used to tweak the tuning and level of each sample individually, Something I didn’t find necessary to do; it sounds great with the factory settings. And finally the Settings Panel is used to manage content, presets, MIDI settings, sample cycling, and master controls.
