Nine Volt Audio releases Big Bad Guitars Direct

Nine Volt Audio Big Bad Guitars Direct

Nine Volt Audio has released Big Bad Guitars Direct, a clean, uneffected, uncompressed, direct-to-the-board version of the Big Bad Guitars loop collection.

With today’s wide range and affordability of amp simulation plug-ins (many of which now come bundled with sequencers) embracing the huge range of guitar tone options that are available has never been easier.

Big Bad Guitars Direct features

  • 738 files for each format: REX2, Stylus RMX, Apple Loops and ACIDized Wav. Each part is presented as a mono, single guitar part, and an accompanying stereo loop with each part panned hard left and right.
  • Organized into 16 “mini-song” suites. Each suite contains clearly labeled song parts, riffs, string “scrapes” and sustained chords for endings and breaks.
  • 130+ “remix” style guitar loops from Big Bad Guitars that feature filtered, “stuttered” and effected sounds designed to take each suite to the next level.
  • Any of the REX-based loops (used in Stylus RMX and Reason) can be used at tempos as slow as 76 BPM.
  • “Toolbox” section of straight-ahead 8th and 16th note palm-muted power chord loops, designed to supplement any suite or stand on their own as the backbone to any track.
  • Using Big Bad Guitars Direct within Stylus RMX requires the user to drag-and-drop only one folder into RMX’s included S.A.G.E. Converter. No further organization is needed.
  • All loops are in 24-bit/44.1kHz resolution.

Big Bad Guitars Direct is available as a download for $99.99 USD. Owners of the standard version of Big Bad Guitars can upgrade for $34.99 USD. Save $65 USD when purchasing Big Bad Guitars and Big Bad Guitars Direct together.

Nine Volt Audio releases Big Bad Bass Guitar

Nine Volt Audio Big Bad Bass Guitar

Nine Volt Audio has announced the release of Big Bad Bass Guitar, a collection of rough and tumble low-end riffs, lines and progressions designed to be the backbone of any modern or hardrock song.

Big Bad Bass Guitar supplies companion lines for every suite in Nine Volt Audio’s Big Bad Guitars and Big Bad Guitars Direct and goes beyond with parts for 14 other tracks. Heavy hooks with tunings as low as Drop-C, parts played with a pick and fingerstyle, and a huge selection of “toolbox” bass patterns, muted strums and slides are all designed to get tracks from here-to-there with realism and ease.

All parts were recorded on a Fender Precision Bass using an amp tone that was chosen to work right out-of-the-box, while still allowing for tonal customization. And forget the constraints of tempo: as part of the BPM Flex Series, Big Bad Bass Guitar allows every REX-based loop to be used at virtually any tempo with no artificial stretching or audio artifacts. This allows for seamless mixing-and-matching of parts across the entire collection.

So if you already own Big Bad Guitars, need some low-end inspiration or simply have a track that needs an injection of deep attitude, Big Bad Bass Guitar is ready to set the foundation.

Big Bad Bass Guitar features

  • 598 files for each format: REX2, Stylus RMX, Apple Loops, ACIDized Wav and Reason ReFill.
  • Organized into 30 song suites covering a tempo rang of 80-152 BPM. Each suite contains clearly labeled song parts, riffs, slides, and sustained notes for endings and breaks.
  • Any of the REX based loops can be used at a wide range of tempos with no artificial stretching or audio artifacts.
  • “Toolbox” section of straight-ahead 8th and 16th note patterns designed to supplement any suite or stand on their own as the backbone of a track.
  • Stylus RMX: drag-and-drop into RMX’s included S.A.G.E. Converter. No additional organization is needed.
  • All loops are mono in 24-bit/44.1 kHz resolution, 100% copyright free.

Big Bad Bass Guitar is available on DVD or via download for $99.99 USD.
