8Dio has also announced the release of Basstard, a multi-sampled instrument for Kontakt focused on recording the gradual destruction of an orchestral bass. The library contains four core categories of sounds: "Tonal", "Percussive", "FX" and "Grooves":

  1. The tonal category covers more traditional multi-sampled articulations like plucked, staccato, rubber mallet on strings, regular drum stick on strings, fork on strings and other tool that could be used for tonal sampling.
  2. The percussive category contains a variety of heavy round-robin based articulations playing the instrument like a drum kit (containing 6-10 round robin articulations).
  3. The FX category has a gruesome amount of FX made with anything from bowing bass with baseball bat, using a power drill on the strings and recording sustained notes from it – to actually power-drilling the bass and reconfigure the instrument – separating its neck from its body and essentially reassemble the instrument in horrible ways.
  4. The Groove category contains unique tempo-synced BPM-based grooves recorded at several core tempos.

Basstard requires the full retail version of Kontakt 4.2 or later. The instrument is currently available for the introductory sale price of $99 (goes to $129 on July 15th, 2012). Click here for more details.
