MODWHEEL has announced the release of The Strained Wire + Garotte for Kontakt with a special introductory price of
US$35 (usually $45) for the next 2 weeks.
Here's what they say:
"Like all composers/musicians we've often thought "what I really need now is the sound of a 4 metre length of strained wire, either plucked, bowed, hit with a mallet or fully tortured." This thought nagged away at the team at MODWHEEL until we finally felt compelled to act on it."
"After a good bit of research and development the MODWHEEL games and recreation room became a huge musical instrument and although our Ping Pong suffered, the resulting tones surpassed our wildest dreams."
"Once we had the behemoth under control and had captured the sonic wonderment we encased it in Kontakt."
The library has been broken up into 3 sections:
- 18 patches of single notes using different wires, gut and nylon line trimmer played with a bow and mallet, plucked and picked.
- These have been laid out chromatically over 5 octaves.
- 6 patches of tortured wire FX and impacts.
- Wilberforce Atmospheres:
- 27 patches of long evolving pads and textures created from the original raw materials.
