Extreme Bass FX free sample pack by Durk Kooistra

Durk Kooistra Extreme Bass FX

Durk Kooistra has announced Extreme Bass FX, a free sample pack featuring bass fx stabs.

Howdy Ho! I’m back with a new freebie for you all. I had some fun with my favorite synth and some FX and ended up with 22 Extreme Bass FX stabs. I decided to give this pack away to my Facebook subscribers.

As the name suggests the sounds are extreme – some are twisted and weird others are pure filth. I hope you enjoy!

The sample pack is free to download for Facebook fans.

Since I have been working on a set of Kontakt instruments for Audiomotif I became more and more interrested in Kontakt as a sound design tool. While mainly engineered towards the chromatic instrument simulations – Kontakts built in effects and scripting language allows you to create very effective sound design tools. Besides sound design tools designed for post production there is also a new line of synth’s and drum instruments coming out next month. (Audiomotif – Electro Tech Vol 01)

What else but a bee would be our simulation? A freebie bee – Right enough with the wordplay. The instrument is using a HP filter to mimic the size of the insect (more bass equals a bee – medium a wasp and only high’s for a fly). There is panning control and X-Y shifts; going from wide to narrow relative of it’s center. There is an EQ section you can use to enhence some frequencies when using a more extreme pitched keys (C1>C2 – C5>C6). The sample used is a synthesized sound and is being looped.

FreeBee is available to download from Durk Kooistra at no cost.

Durk Kooistra Bass Hive

Durk Kooistra of Audiomotif and Humanworkshop has released Bass Hive, a free collection of 10 presets for Native Instruments Massive.

I love NI’s Massive synth. It’s great sounding, intuitive and has some unique functionality.

The patches are a teaser of what is still to come. I am working on some tutorials and perhaps a preset bank for Massive. For now enjoy these freebies and subscribe to stay up to date about my future massive projects.
