Sound Dust Rubber Bass

Sound Dust has announced the release of Rubber Bass, a bass sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rubber Bass is sampled from a funny little Kala ukulele bass. It’s about the size of a kid’s guitar and has big fat rubber strings which are a nightmare to tune.

It’s not very loud acoustically but when DI’d, it has a wonderful round, rubbery bottom end with a lovely hint of twang which belies its tiny stature.

Its a little bit double bassy, but essentially has a character all of its own. It’s not likely to be your go-to-bass sound , but for certain things it is bloody marvelous!

The sample library is available to purchase for £15 GBP. A simple 9-velocity layer SFZ version is also available.

Free Pringles Drumkit SFZ at Mildon Studios

Mildon Studios Pringles Drumkit SFZ

Mildon Studios has released the Pringles Drumkit SFZ, a free sound library featuring the sounds of a pringles can.

It’s natural for us musicians to turn everyday objects (or snacks) into musical instruments, it’s in our blood. But even non-musicians can easily discover the musical potential of a half-empty can of Pringles. Listen to this delicious demo.

This famous canister starts crackling as soon as it leaves the table and doesn’t stop until you put it back down. With a little effort and the right slapping/shaking/tapping/chip-scratching/biting technique, we’ve turned this potato crisp popper into a complete drum machine.

We didn’t do a lot of processing to the samples to preserve the raw crumby sound, except for a few slaps and taps that had to be layered to get the ‘kick’ and ‘snare’ to sound big enough. A little bluemix here and there, some compression, that’s it.

We selected a few samples from about a hundred to be a part of this kit, so you can expect another crackly kit soon. It gave us a lot of fun, and now it’s your turn to make some crunchy beats!

The SFZ is a free download at Mildon Studios.
