Mod Wheel Double Bass for Kontakt

THE LOWDOWN is a new deeply sampled Double Bass instrument for Kontakt and is the first release for new local sound developers MOD WHEEL. But what makes this new release particularly special is the people behind it – the first film that I was Sound Designer on (Saving Grace back in 1997) was scored by a trio of composers, collectively known as Plan 9.

As the double bass player in the collective David Donaldson has always been an extraordinarily inventive and expressive player, so it comes as no surprise the creative depth & unique nature of a virtual Double bass Kontakt instrument originating from his primary instrument for 35 years. This is most definitely not just another generic double bass Kontakt instrument:
