Double bass × garden twine ÷ √ (sub bass + reverb) = CLOUD BASS

Like the other members of the CLOUD family (see CLOUD VIOLA and CLOUD CELLO) CLOUD BASS is made by ditching the conventional bow in favour of a ridiculous system of springs and pulleys that drag coarse industrial grade garden twine over the strings of the double bass to create a long, slowly distressed new bowing articulation.

Recorded with different microphone techniques and mixed with more conventional double bass articulations and a selection of multi sampled analogue sub bass waveforms CLOUD BASS is a very different beast to the usual orchestral or jazz double bass sample libraries.

Expect new sounds from a humble double bass - low raspy rumbling, cinematic thuds and booms, delicate whispy swarms and some of the more usual sounds. CLOUD BASS can easily do a half decent {See video at top of page}

Eight deeply sampled articulations through eight 'oscillators':

  • Twine 1: bowed with five meters of coarse brown garden string, five round robins per note per note - AKG C414 large diaphragm condensor mic mic.
  • Twine 2: bowed with five meters of coarse brown garden string, five round robins per note per note - Barcus Berry Planar contact mic.
  • Twine 3: bowed with five meters of coarse brown garden string, five velocity levels per note -AKG 411 contact mic.
  • Long Accent Bow: bowed with a real bow, five round robins per note, minimum three velocity layers per note - AKG C414 large diaphragm condensor mic.
  • Short Accent Bow (high): bowed with a real bow, five round robins per note - AKG C414 large diaphragm condensor mic.
  • Beater - thumped lightly with drum beater, five round robins per note, five velocity layers per note - AKG C414 large diaphragm condensor mic.
  • Col legno: Latin for 'gently thwacked with the back of the bow', five round robins per note, minimum three velocity layers per note - AKG C414 large diaphragm condensor mic.
  • Sub Bass: six selectable analogue multi sampled waveforms recorded from Moog Voyager and DSi Pro 02.

74 specially created convolution reverb impulses recorded from real spaces, expensive hardware and some less obvious sources including spring reverbs, tape delay, reversed impulses, software models, radio, vinyl and the stage of Glyndebourne Opera House.
