Modwheel releases The Lowdown double bass for Kontakt

Modwheel The Lowdown

Modwheel has announced the release of The Lowdown, a Kontakt library featuring the sounds of a 100 year old double bass from David Donaldson.

The original concept for the LOWDOWN was to detune the Bass to a low G, 8 semitones lower than its normal low E and record over a minute of low drones on each note over a range of 3 octaves. We then recorded bowed harmonics playing the same notes that can be layered on using a keyboard mod wheel.

The result is a huge variety of rich organically moving drones and pads, that are all at least a minute long performance before looping, from very natural to very messed with.

After achieving this aural triumph, we decided to extend the library to include traditional pizzicato and arco articulations and some more experimental rhythms and impacts. The rhythms are all BPM’d and will play at whatever tempo your session is at.

The Lowdown features

  • DOUBLE BASS Arco, Pizz, Ambiences, Pads, Impacts, Kits & Rhythms (BPM’d).
  • Long Performance samples, 60 sec+.
  • 24-Bit 48kHz Multisamples.
  • 5.5 GB Core Library (2.6 GB via lossless compression.
  • Note: Requires Kontakt 5.3.0 or higher.

The Lowdown is available for purchase for the introductory price of $49 USD (regular $79 USD).
