Sub51 releases Quondam for Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol


Sub51 has announced the release of Quondam for Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol, saying:

We are always open to a challenge, so when it was suggested that we create a varied sample library of pads, rhythms, drones, loops, effects, lead sounds and basses using only sounds sampled from a bass guitar being played, hit or scraped, we were only too happy to oblige.

Requiring the full version of NI's Kontakt (6.6.0+), Quondam's contents are divided into Bass Instruments, 'Clicks, Pops and Scrapes', Dark Arp Loops (Host Sync), Dark Arp Slices with MIDI files, Drones and FX, Hollowed, Morphed, Noises, Obscure, Pads, Rhythmic Loops (Host Sync) and Rhythmic Slices with MIDI files. In all there are over 300 patches which may be further modified via Pan, Tune, Envelope and Velocity controls as well as resonant filtering, lo-fi transformations, saturation and host synced multi-wave LFO modulation with variable fade-in time.

Additionally there are effects comprising Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Phase and Flanger where all but reverb have host sync options. In the relevant sections, the sample start time can also be adjusted with the sample waveform displayed within the instrument's intuitive, single page GUI.

Komplete Kontrol users will also be able to get deep and fully hands on with Quondam's parameters via its intuitive layout and snapshots.

Quondam is capable of generating Taurus-like basses, textural drones, shifting pads, melodic rhythms, percussive spot effects and synth sounds that range from bell-like to Wavestation-style complexity. What you won't find is anything recognisable as a bass guitar.

Quondam will appeal to genres such as Ambient, Electro, Ethera, Experimental, EDM and more but in reality the only limitation is imagination.

  • 93 Clicks, Pops & Scrapes.
