UmanskyBass

The Z3X represents the pinnacle of Dingwall basses - often selling for close to $10,000 USD. 

Encapsulating the sound of his now-famous black & white custom shop Z3X, modern progressive bass prodigy Jacob Umansky (Intervals) painstakingly sampled every nuance of his distinctive style to create UmanskyBass.

This fingerstyle library is powered by our next generation truBass technology, and loaded with all the articulations you need to recreate immensely intricate bass lines - even including thumping.

An astoundingly forward-looking bass design, the Z3X, even without processing, sounds like a finished bass tone. Aided by Jacob’s sublime expert touch, this is one of our easiest virtual basses to work with. 

For those times you squarely want the bass to sit alongside the guitars and make its presence known, UmanskyBass is the ideal solution.

Tones

Our design ethos behind UmanskyBass is to channel Jacob’s distinctive sound as authentically as possible. As a result, we include 4 tones, heavily based on his studio tones with Intervals:

umanski-icon-di.svg__PID:80b08556-dc46-4cf5-8b40-3a2d864427d2

The raw sound of the instrument, captured directly via high end, studio-grade recording hardware. Process as you would any other bass - using your favourite plugins, pedals or amps. This allows ultimate flexibility; mix the bass on your own terms.

umanski-icon-cln.svg__PID:27d27225-0a14-439a-9216-789e8ae723e1

This is ‘the’ Jacob Umansky tone you know and love. Whether you’ve heard one of his many playthroughs on Instagram, or are familiar with his work on assorted albums as either a member or session bassist, the CLN sound will get you that unmistakable Z3X piano-esque tone.

You won’t believe that depth and clarity like this can coexist in a singular tone.

umanski-icon-grit.svg__PID:72250a14-839a-4216-b89e-8ae723e13e35

Like CLN, but extra. We maintain the same lovely, distinctive spectral balance which defines Jacob’s sound, and increase the gain range so that you can really make the bass spank.

umanski-icon-hvy.svg__PID:b2fc8af3-370e-4e39-bf46-82e937a5d580

Based on Jacob’s studio tones, this fuzzy mid-heavy sound replicates one of the auxiliary tones Jacob uses to create interesting textures in certain parts of his music.

In our usual style, all three tones are premixed for your convenience - so you can get straight to the art of being creative.

The Drive, Tone, Compression and Girth controls further allow you to perfectly match the bass to your music.

The tuning range

UmanskyBass is C0 up to D4. It’s been tuned perfectly across the entire note range, so it can act as a tuning reference whenever you’re recording guitars.

The DOOM button

Intentionally shrinks the round robin, giving you the most powerful, direct samples for reduced realism and greater consistency - for those times where variance is undesirable.

Humanize

The Humanization control injects natural variance into the playback, for adjustable realism.

The Position control is a convenient way to select where on the virtual fretboard you’d like the performance to take place.

For absolute control, our Force String articulation can select exactly which string each note is performed on, giving you the ability to tonally match your guitar riffs 1 to 1.

Use the Configuration menu to rebind keyswitches, set the tuning of the bass, and adjust the pitch bend range for ultimate customization to your personal workflow.

Native Instruments - Kontakt

As an official Native Instruments partner, UmanskyBass runs in the industry standard free Kontakt Player, meaning you don’t have to worry about any additional hidden costs. Kontakt is the most widely used and widely compatible sampler in the industry, meaning there is a robust team of professionals available to make it work perfectly for you.

truBass Technology

Based on our next generation truBass technology, UmanskyBass features a ridiculously robust collection of articulations, including: Finger Picking, Ghost Notes, Slap Bass, Natural Harmonics, Hammer On/Pull Off, Tapping, truSlides, Thump & various mutes.

Multi-Sampling

The entire fretboard of the instrument is multi-sampled so that your virtual riffs sound exactly as intended. Ie. Playing an open D string sounds vastly different to playing that same D note on the B-string.

truSlides

Our truSlide algorithm can slide from any note on the virtual fretboard, to any other note, at whatever speed or velocity curve you desire, to perfectly match the slides of your real guitars.

Intelligent Alternate Picking

Our proprietary tempo-synced alternate picking algorithm has a robust round robin that never sounds like samples are repeating, no matter the speed of your music.

Packet fresh’ tone

UmanskyBass was sampled with brand new steel strings, meaning that you always get that lovely ‘packet fresh’ tone, with no wear down. The average professional bass recording session often costs several times the price of UmanskyBass in string packets alone.

Testimonials

Aaron Marshall

Intervals

“Jacob is tenacious and precise in his ability to hold down a strong foundation for the music I make. We’ve played so many damn shows together at this point, that I know exactly where he’s going to go, or better yet, where he CAN go. That was liberating for me on Circadian, even without a meticulously sampled robot version of him in plugin form… I suppose he is now an immortal asset, at your disposal, living inside your computer. Do what you will with that power.”

testimonial-sam_harchik.png__PID:b5c11868-bcb0-4fa7-b1ab-e141661a7117

Sam Harchik

UmanskyBass Engineer, Aviations

“I’ve been recording and mixing Jacob’s playing for years, from Intervals to Aviations, and a hefty amount of Darkglass, Neural DSP, and Dingwall demo. Jacob’s sound and intonation have cemented themselves as THE most ideal bass tone for my ears. This DI’s versatility runs the gamut of all genres, limited only by what you choose to do with it. The vast amount of articulations we sampled took an enormous amount of time, but the level of excruciating detail we achieved helped the Submission Audio team to finally capture THAT sound better than I’ve ever heard before. Don’t sleep on your chance to get the secret sauce of perfectly balanced bass tone into your productions.”

Sheldon Dingwall

Dingwall Bass Guitars

“Jacob Umansky has been a top Dingwall artist for several years now. His tone is textbook perfect. His technique and composition skills are off the charts! Jacob and the team at submission audio truly captured his sound and the essence of the Z3x flawlessly with this plug-in.”
