The metronome drums donít sound all that good, do they?

No, they certainly donít! Every other drum box out there sounds more interesting than the drums built into BROOMSTICKBASS. The metronome is there for your reference only. You may also use it as a metronome when doing other sequencer work.

Some instruments have EQ and compression preset when they are loaded but not all instruments. Why?

In BROOMSTICKBASS, the mastering stage (when the engineer puts the final touches to the sound, making sure all instruments have equal levels, overall bass energy etc.) was done at the DSP level. All mastering tweaks are made with the built-in effects. This means that you can easily get the original sound back, as it sounded when the basses were recorded. Just turn off all effects and you're back to square one.

Some instruments don't have any default DSP settings when loaded. That's because they were regarded good enough as they stand.

Why donít Slide down/up and Hammer-ons/Pull-offs work on the synthesisers? There are no noises on the F-F#-G keys either.

These are typical performance features for the stringed instruments, the acoustic and electric basses. There simply are no such natural articulations on keyboard instruments. The only special features we have included are staccato mode and the facility for turning your keyboard into single trigger mode (like a real MiniMoog).

Is Broomstick Bass compatible with the new IntelMacs and Windows Vista?

No, not yet. No schedule has been set for these updates.

Some instruments Ė like e.g. the Moog Taurus bass pedals Ė sound a little weird when played in the higher registers. Why?

Thatís because the BROOMSTICKBASS engine transposes the highest samples up to G4. While an electric bass can have true samples up to Eb4 (and sometimes higher), the Taurus pedal synthesiser only goes up to C3 (with the Octave button pressed). Since all Taurus notes above C3 are transposed to cover such a wide range, they do inevitably sound a little weird.
