Well, it's the last day of 2009 and I am legally required by the Blogosphere to acknowledge that in the form of some all-encompassing, clever wrap-up that encapsulates what this year was all about. But posts like that are a dime a dozen, so let's just cut to the chase. What is your pick for the best album of 2009?
Mine is "It's Blitz!" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I'd always liked this band, but their transformation from a noisy alternarock band into a sleek, electronics-driven dancefloor juggernaut was amazing not only in its bravery, but also in its execution. It's rare to see a band pull off this kind of dramatic change in such a skillful way and although I've listened to it non-stop all year, I never seem to get sick of it. So what's your selection?

A while back I posted a video of a guy recreating Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" in Ableton Live using the original sample sources. This one isn't quite as impressive (and could use some serious editing), but it's still very interesting. I hope people keep doing these, they're a lot of fun to watch.

I just want to take the time out to wish all of you wonderful Waveformless readers a very Merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate this time of year as an excuse to drink yourself silly.
Here's a little present for you - 14 presets for FXpansion's Strobe synth (part of DCAM Synth Squad). They're mostly basses, but there's a couple percussion and synth sounds in there are well.

So in that spirit, today I give you 5 single note samples of bass sounds produced by an Access Virus B. The root note of all of these is C. As usual, they are 24-bit/44.1k WAV samples.
GO GET THEM!
