    Every Bass Sound You Can Think of...All in a Single Package.

    Bass is the driving force behind today's energy-packed dance, pop and rock music. Whether you're a songwriter using MIDI sequencing or a performer needing to pump-up the low end, the solution is the Alesis NanoBass™. It offers 256 high-quality preset bass programs within its four megabyte sound library. There's a great selection of synth bass sounds for dance music styles...bass and drums, techno, jungle, acid, hip-hop, house and R&B basses, many with exciting resonant filter sweeps and other cool modulation sounds built into the samples. Both vintage analog and cutting-edge bass synth sounds are included. The NanoBass also contains plenty of traditional bass sounds for rock, pop, fusion and jazz music, including punchy rock electrics, smooth fretless bass, rich acoustic uprights and many more. Like all Alesis synths, the NanoBass offers true 64 voice polyphony and high-quality 16-bit 48kHz linear samples for supreme-quality sonic performance with no voice robbing. Each program also features built-in Alesis effects that you can change using the convenient front panel controller.
