Bastard 2.0

A Bass Sampled to Annihilation 

Prepare to revolutionize your perception of the string bass with the Bastard, a groundbreaking instrument meticulously crafted to capture the gradual decay and transformative journey of an orchestral bass. We pushed the limits, playing it with forks, mallets, baseball bats, power drills, and more, documenting each phase of its deterioration.

The Bastard's journey ended in a ceremonial funeral stomping, making it a truly unique creation. Delve into a mesmerizing expedition through diverse sound categories: "Tonal," "Percussion," “Groove,” and "FX," each designed for audacious musical experimentation.

The Bastard isn't just a sample library; it's an entry to an eerie, gritty, and unconventional musical realm.

Immerse yourself in its unconventional sounds, as the echoes of the upright bass transport you to unparalleled sonic exploration. From bone-chilling soundtracks to genre-defying depth, the Bastard is your guide to uncharted musical territories.
