Grate Bass Lite


Guaranteed Safe Checkout

Grate Bass Lite is a free virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt giving you unusual scratchy sounds of an electric bass played with a pick. Grate Bass Lite features two of the five sound patches and three of the seven effects from the full version of Grate Bass.

The output of the bass was recorded using a DI and in addition a large diaphragm condenser microphone was pointed 30 cm above the neck to record the scratchy pick sounds separately. Grate Bass Lite lets you choose how to blend the two sound sources together. All sound patches range from notes E1 to C4 and have two velocity layers with three round robins each.


  • Two playing styles: Normal picking and scratching fast along strings
  • Separate Volume Control for DI and Mic signal
  • Note Attack and Release time control
  • Effects: Distortion, Bass Amp Simulation (4×10) and Reverb
  • Total number of samples: 792 (@44.1 kHz/24 bit, mono)

System Requirements:

  • FULL version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.4 or above (does NOT work with free Kontakt Player!)
  • 360 MB of free hard drive space
