This is a super straight forward little Kontakt instrument - but I've used it loads over the years.
For those of you in any other sampler I've included the sample (it's tuned to c#1).
For the full version of Kontakt from 5.8.1 upwards.
Included is the Kontakt instrument + 10 Presets + One Shot Sample.
The freedbacker. For all intents and purposes this is a somewhat failed experiment - in 2014 I worked in a really wonderful studio - it had all the great gear - Neve Console, Studer Tape Machine, and wonderful mics from the golden era of Neumann, AKG etc so I set about experimenting and recording some instruments. As a lover of all things doom metal, drone and noise - I wanted to try and create a chromatic feedback instrument - which I did, it didn't work quite right, it was too predictable.
And so it lived on a hard drive in the sound purgatory section never to be used.
Until years later, I found that one of those feedback loops stretched sounded amazing, something about the tension in the movement of the feedback tuning that I loved.
Sometimes a simple one shot sample stretched is perfect.
This is that instrument.
Since then I've used it loads underpinning or creating tension in productions or simply as a drone instrument. A recent production I used it in was Diego Philips' 2020 track 'The Sun' - The Freedbacker runs the length of the track, with added tape loops and guitar swells over the top.
The amp used was a Lazy J combo, the guitar a Silvertone - mic-ed with a Sennheiser md441 in to a Neve 8058 console.
With delay and reverb on/off switches.
Kontakt Preset Instruments:
Delay - simple delay.
Frippertronics - A long tape like delay.
Keep on Truckin' - reverb taken in the same truck as our TRUCK DRUMS instrument.
Long Robert - A stereo reverby version of frippertronics or tapey delay - think the classic 'No Pussyfooting' sort of sound. A personal favourite.
Spongy - I was thinking a kind of Bebe & Louie Barron/Raymond Scott kind of thing.
The Peter Criss Jazz - An ode to one of my favourite albums - American Don by Don Caballero & the chopped guitar textures on track 2: 'The Peter Criss Jazz'. Nothing to do with Kiss, although they're great as well. This almost sounds calliope like.
The Peter Criss Truck - The Peter Criss Jazz but in a truck.
Truck Delay - Delayed feedback with our Truck IR.
Truck Verb - Slightly altered Truck Reverb.
