Dark Ambient is the latest in the series of Analogue Workshop sample libraries from synthesist, label honcho and sound designer Ian Boddy, right.
The library features 300 samples and over 500 Kontakt patches, created with Boddy’s extensive collection of vintage and analogue modular synths.
The patches run the 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.
A custom 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.
