Exclamation Best Virtual Bass (HELP)

Hello, everyone! I need help finding a virtual rock bass, I want a Jazz Bass played with a pick. I have used the ZomBass for kontakt, someone knows another option? I heard about the SampleTank 3 and also the Brunnemann cory Warlock Bass, some more?

I seek only by jazz bass played with a pick.

Cheers!

East west Ministry of Rock 2. 5 strings and quite tweakable, very real sounding if you like that kinda sound.
Other wise the Scarbee bass for Kontakt can be very usable in combination with something like
a UAD Softube bass amp room plug
There would be heaps more...

Thanks so far, folks! I know the Trilian, always found it amazing, but worth that does not have a Jazz Bass version played with a pick ...

Buy a jazz bass and a pick. Seriously.
You'll be amazed at how much better the real thing will sound and use
some audio quantize tools if needed. And it's a lot more fun too.

The Scarabee Jazz bass is pretty good but nowhere near as good as the Fender American Jazz bass you can find on Craigslist cheap.

I love the various Scarbee basses but when I need an aggressive picked bass I go with the Prominy SR5.

- Trilian: versatile and major of course
- Scarbee basses: I like MM and Rickenbacker
- Prominy SR5 is brilliant in terms of legato playing and the response for fast metal/rock is outstanding
- Ilya Efimovs basses: Only have Modern bass, and think they are comparable to Scarbee. Good stuff. (Bass — Ilya Efimov Production)
- Orange Tree samples Cherry Electric Bass has also been praised: Bass Sample Library for Kontakt - Orange Tree Samples

If you can wait a little while, Ample Sound is currently working on their picked bass sample library. They've already released two fingered ones and they are phenomenal, as all of Ample Sound's products are. I don't know how long it will take them to release the picked version, but it's sure to be spectacular, if their current products are any indication.

Is it a one time stuff or do you want to use it regularly? If it is a one time stuff I'll be happy to track one of my Jazz basses using a pick for you free of charge. As said a real recorded bass is preferable. You can PM if you want.
