MODWHEEL, has released The Bends, a metallic percussion library for Kontakt that is intended to blur the line between music and sound design.
This is the second release in their Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on organic percussion sounds. Following in the footsteps of Humdrum, it features a collection of all things metal - gongs, cymbals, gamelan, triangles, and miscellaneous household items, struck, scraped and bowed while being immersed in water.
- 30 Patches of otherworldly pitch bends, underwater rhythms and hits designed to make for an evocative library for the adventurous.
- 750 Samples (up to a minute long) recorded at 24-96 k with contact and stereo microphones.
- Each patch allows for much manipulation with pitch. echo, shaping, arpeggiator and stutter key.
- Most patches have velocity sensitivity assigned to the mod wheel which gives more flexibility in shaping rhythms when arpeggiator is switched on.
Price: $35. Available for a limited time for $25. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.
