Rubber Bass Instrument

Sound Dust samples a Kala ukulele bass      06/02/13

Sound Dust has released Rubber Bass. Here's what he told us...

"I'm not the most prolific of samplists out there, but when I do develop a
new instrument it's because I'm really excited about its sound and
possibilities. So after much ado I've finally got something new to share

Rubber Bass is sampled from a funny little Kala ukulele bass. It's about the
size of a kid's guitar and has big fat rubber strings which are a nightmare
to tune.

It's not very loud acoustically but when DI'd, it has a wonderful round,
rubbery bottom end with a lovely hint of twang which belies its tininess. Its a
little bit double bassy, but essentially has a character all of its own.
It's not likely to be your go-to-bass sound, but for certain things it is
bloody marvelous!

The video has a few annotations which explain what is going on which
unfortunately don't work on mobile devices, so its best viewed on a 'proper'
computer (with big speakers too!)

I've sampled it with eight layers of round robin and a layer of adjustable
note-off release. There's also four pages of Kontakt scripting, including an
arpeggiator, which is really great for quickly playing throbbing basslines,
while the organic-ator brings a bit of humanity to your sequencing."
