The concept of the venson bass like the mandolin is very simple.
You can play any note on any string between the open string (0 fret) and the 22nd fret using key switches.
I made this kontakt instrument so I can have the ability to play any note that I want, that way I can play the bass and have the same spacing of the chords that the bass has and the same tone that the strings has. It’s very important to have the right TONE OF THE STRING so it will sound the right.
In the venson bass you can select always the right note on the right string or you can select the open strings if you like that sound. you can decide what is right to you it’s your choice.
You can hear the TONE OF THE STRING clearly when you play arpeggio notes.
How to use the venson bass is explained in the video in this page.
