8DIO Productions has introduced Mark Deutsch’s Bazantar, a virtual instrument featuring the sounds of the Bazantar, a custom five-string acoustic bass, fitted with an additional twenty-nine sympathetic strings and four drone strings.
The 8DIO Bazantar is a deep-sampled virtual instrument containing over 2.700 samples divided into two main categories: Multi-samples and phrase-samples. The multi-samples consists of both plucked and bowed representations of the instrument.
We recorded traditional plucked bass with 8 round robins pr. note, a highly versatile amount of tapped samples at 10 round robins, regular sustains with and without vibrato, several dynamic sustains/swells. In addition we phrase-sampled Mark Deutsch playing the bass in a variety of ways from traditional plucked and bowed bass – to solo’s played with backside of the bow (con legno). We also did deep-sampling of the drone strings, so you have a highly versatile instrument. In addition the instrument was recorded in a rich church environment with two sets of microphones (close/internal) and (ambient/player), so users can adjust the sound to their liking ranging from recordings from player perspective to more far, hall based microphones.. We also added a variety of controls (ex. pedal volume, release volume, noise reduction, EQ etc) and a visual velocity editor, so you can fully sculpt the piano to your liking. The Bazantar also includes a great selection of convolution reverbs and convolution effects.
The sound library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $199 USD (regular $249 USD).
