Using MIDI Learn, you can assign any Virtual Bassist control to hardware controls of MIDI keyboards or other controllers.
To assign a control, you usually right-click or ctrl-click a control in the Virtual Bassist plug-in to open the MIDI Learn context menu of your DAW.
All controls in the Virtual Bassist Series can be automated. In combination with the phrase select keys this is actually a very powerful way of creating more dynamic performances. For example in MELLOW, you can automate POSITION and DRIVE with faders to create dynamic transitions, or switch-automate AMP or Doubling to drastically change the sound between song parts.
For instructions on how to activate Virtual Bassist parameters for automation, please refer to your DAW’s user guide.
The sustain pedal replicates the Latch control, so you can use it as an additional way of varying phrases in real-time. Pressing the sustain pedal activates latching of chord notes. Releasing the sustain pedal releases any latched chord notes even if the Latch button is on.
