Plugin Boutique has launched a sale on the Nordisk Kontrabass by Have Audio, a unique upright bass instrument designed to help you create epic cues as well as intimate and fragile soundscapes to bring some of the most inspiring Scandinavian and European atmospheres into your compositions.

The library was recently updated with a brand new, full range, legato articulation, a full range “Harmony of Whales” articulation for instant cinematic harmonies, bouncing spiccatos, and a new pizzicato patch with 5 articulations/keyswitches (normal pizzicato, gliss, fret FX, Street Slap and pizzicato harmonics).

Superbly performed by a top creative player, Nordisk Kontrabass is great both as a fat, real-sounding upright bass and as a stand-alone compositional tool, capable of delivering beautiful and engaging string harmonies and textures, powerful rhythms and emotive melodies that will make your music stand out.

It is influenced by the styles of composers and musicians who redefined film-scoring and contemporary music. References were Jóhann Jóhannson, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Max Richter, Arvo Pärt, most minimalistic music and contemporary European ECM-like improvised music.

The library features 100% playable, full range legato and pizzicato, lots of techniques and textures never sampled before and gives you tons of colour variations and articulations to set cinematic vibes in seconds. You can model new and surprising grooves by using the built-in arpeggiator or manipulate all the phrases and textures recorded for you to personalize them, changing the tempo, performing ritardando and accelerando in real-time, reversing, adding top-class effects and enter a new sound design realm by engaging the ICE knob.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher, Nordisk Kontrabass is priced 99 EUR / $119 USD until August 1st, 2021.
