unEarthed sampling has released releases Bowed Fences, a Kontakt format sample library of cinematically bowed and struck barbed wire fences.
Here's what they say: "Inspired by the tonal work of artist / musician / mastermind Jon Rose, we went out into the middle of nowhere in south Texas and took a cello bow to a handful of old barbed wire fences. The end results are delightfully spooky fodder for your next sci fi or horror score. These recordings are so hardcore, that our cello bow is now completely ripped to shreds... but it was worth it."
A full video walkthrough is below.
The three main patches consist of unique one shot recordings all of which vary in length and timbre. The Drones Patch contains grisly low end material, the Whines Patch contains higher pitched scream like material, and the Hits Patch contains various metal fence poles and wire which were hit with the bow while recording. The Hits Patch has 6 unique hits all with 4 x RR.
As a bonus, unEarthed sampling "processed the heck" out of these recordings by mangling their speed, EQ, and timbre to create a series of 14 processed Pad patches which would accommodate making creepout / tension beds. These all loop and are appropriately horrific, with a low pass filter mapped directly to the mod wheel, the timbre of these can totally change at the flick of a finger. In addition to the processed Pad-like material, they've also included a series of five percussive / impact patches which are well suited for accent or trailer hits.
The GUI is tweakable as you have direct access to the Lo, Mid, and Hi EQ, Pitch, Reverb (with 13 original impulse responses), attack / release, and a Grit Knob which adds distortion to make the patches even more grimey.
Price: $25.00 / £14.99. For the full version of Kontakt 4.2+.
