“Down by law” is an inspiring tool to add an acoustic liveliness and to blend in rhythmical figures to an arrangement.   Synced to tempo in Kontakt. Recorded and performed in a great sounding studio, with the most serious intent

The loops are tight grooves recorded one note at the time on a bass-string also using the body of instrument as perc. The loops can be used as one-note bass-grooves or spread out as chords. By layering loop patches on top of eachother, you can work towards masterful complexities.


The acoustic bass guitar, is basically a large guitar with bass strings. It is a stringed instrument consisting at its most basic level of four strings that are generally activated by plucking one or more strings with fingers, nails or plectrum.  We recorded a drummer playing same loops on different strings with beaters.  


The scalable Kontakt interface is intuitive and easy to play with. On the left side you have the usual suspects : level, attack and release, reverb, delay, pitch vibrato and lowpass filter. Mixer tracks on the right side, with purge buttons and routing opportunities. The FX button on the bottom row, opens a scripted effect bonanza that gives you countless ways of morphing your sounds and combining various, sometimes randomised, parameters with a XY pad. 


The library includes finely cut one-tone-loops and repetitive percussive figures. We recorded a multitude of very rhythmical timesynced grooves Patches can simply be played as one-finger bass motives, or like chord that will blossom into polyrhythmic bass arpeggios.



The loops encompasses a number of different strike areas of the instrument (ribs, shoulders, tailpiece, strings, different areas of the body) played with percussion beaters including: standard drum sticks, timpani beaters, pencils, bamboo sticks, and brushes.


Combined with the FX Sculpt section, you’ll have – more or less – endless variations to mess up each patch. The FX Sculpt menu opens a menu with different pre-tweaked XY settings. Choose from a variety of flexible modulation options such as an Pitch Follower (synth), multiple granular, sadistic filter, complex randomized serialconnected evolving textures and sound design elements.
