PATCH GROOVE Bass

Bass line generator. Notes can be adjusted by a sequenced-steps module and rhythm patterns by a sequenced-switches module.

The sampler module included in the patch is very basic and can easily be changed for your favorite VST/AU instrument. It's also recommended to set the VST/AU-i's polyphony to 1.
