360 Systems MIDI Bass

   (0 reviews)

Welcome to the world of sampled bass sounds. It can reproduce ANY SOUND that is stored on its digital memory chips. Digital Audio from 360 Systems Midi Bass produces sound of a quality that has been unattainable by most other sampling instruments, including some of the more expensive ones. Although it is used primarily for “bass” instruments, Midi Bass is actually capable of an audio bandwidth of 16 Hz to 16,000 Hz. Noise and distortion are low enough to make it an excellent choice for studio work too. 360 Systems uses a unique circuit design with two VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) chips to provide many new features, while reducing the cost compared to earlier design methods.

Midi Bass plays sounds that come from audio information stored in digital memory chips called EPROMs. Each EPROM contains the sound of one particular instrument, and up to four different EPROMs can be plugged into Midi Base at once. There are essentially no limits to the types of sounds that can be stored digitally. 360 Systems has most of the world‘s best-liked bass sounds available for Midi Bass, and many new and unusual sounds are being developed, from synths to percussion to special effects.

MIDI stands for "Musical Instrument Digital Interface", and is a method of sending performance information from one instrument to another. MIDI is an industry standard, which means that it is adhered to (more or less) by all manufacturers so that instruments made by different companies can "talk" to one another. Midi Bass adheres to the MIDI standard, and works well with every MIDI device we know of. it's the perfect MIDI "slave", and can be driven by MIDI keyboards, sequencers, bass pedals, guitar controllers, and even MIDI drum machines!
