Basstard - 2 is a multi-sampled instrument focused on recording the gradual destruction of a full-scale orchestral bass. The library contains four core categories of sounds: “Tonal”, “Percussive”, “FX” and “Grooves”. The tonal category covers more traditional multi-sampled articulations like plucked, staccato, rubber mallet on strings, regular drum stick on strings, fork on strings and other tool that could be used for tonal sampling. The percussive category contains a variety of heavy round-robin based articulations playing the instrument like a drum kit (containing 6-10 round robin articulations).
The FX category has a gruesome amount of FX made with anything from bowing the bass with a baseball bat, using a power drill on the strings and recording sustained notes from it – to actually power drilling the bass and reconfigure the instrument – separating its neck from its body and essentially reassemble the instrument in horrible ways. The Groove category contains unique tempo-synched BPM-based grooves recorded at several core tempos (80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140). The end-result is a deep-sampled instrument that pushes the concept of orchestral bass into a more dark, gritty, percussive and disturbing territory.
