Pendle Poucher has released the Pendleonium, a sample library of a custom instrument.

- Danelectro Baritone guitar recorded through Roland RE501 chorus echo and a Roger Linn Adrenalinn 3 amp.
- Sparkly silver Fernandes Sustainer Native guitar recorded through the tape echo and amp.
- Unknown viola mic’ed and then run through a Vermona Retroverb spring reverb.
- Recorded 24bit with many velocity levels, total size: 951 MB.
- 3 pages of Kontakt scripting allow intimate control of volume levels, filters, pan etc. for a massive variety of sound possibilities.
