Right-click, Add track > Add Instrument Track. Now, let's click on Browse. The Add Instrument Track will expand, showing the preset browser with many search options. Category, Sub Category, Style, Character, or Instrument.
On the right, there is a Search if you know what you're looking for. As we've done before, we can click on these and audition them by playing our controller. (SOUND). Let's go up here and search for a bass. (SOUND), that sounds okay.
If you're not happy with the results, you can always go here and reset all the search parameters.
