Bass GuitarMonics is a virtual instrument for the Native Instruments Kontakt 4.24+ software sampler (full version, not the free Kontakt Player).
Mapped across 3 octaves, this library is a comprehensive collection of electric bass guitar harmonics covered by 3 dynamic layers, 5x round robin playback, and 3 pickup selections to alter the tone.
Mono DI (direct-input recording, for use with amplifier simulation software / hardware) and clean stereo AMP versions are included, for maximum flexibility.
In addition, this library includes two sets of samples - "Natural" and "Pure", which offer originally-recorded samples with authentic tone and samples edited for faster playing, respectively.

Lovely sounds but all very similar
I was really impressed by the first sounds I made with this instrument. They are very usable. There's not a huge variation of sound available from the pickup variations but if you like what you've got that's OK. I doubt you'd be able to play harmonic melodies on a real bass like you can on this.
