Analogue Workshop Volume 2: Dark Ambient

Dark Ambient is the second in the series of Analogue Workshop sample libraries from renowned sound designer Ian Boddy. Featuring 300 samples & over 500 Kontakt patches culled from his collection of vintage & analogue modular synths these sounds dwell very much in the darker realms of ambience & electronic music.

The patches run the full gamut from subsonic drones, evolving pads and haunting modulations to weird, surreal atmospheres. The one-shot section contains a range of crunchy, deep, weird short percussive sounds and FX that can be used to spice up any drum kit or add impact to key moments in your musical compositions.

A new custom designed graphical interface has been scripted in Kontakt to provide even more variation & programming opportunities in the way the sounds are presented. This is rounded out by a set of impulse responses for the convolution reverb taken directly from analogue modules such as spring reverbs & bucket-brigade delays to further enhance the overall sound character.
