The Very Loud Indeed Co. have released Oblique: Dark Cello Explorations for Kontakt which is available at an intro price of $59 through March 11th, $79, after the promotion.
OBLIQUE is a Kontakt instrument off the beaten path. A broken, haunting, sometimes terrifying yet an incredibly expressive cello instrument. This is most definitely not the instrument you want to create beautiful, epic, soaring melodies — it is a nasty beast, one that latches onto the dark corners of the mind and doesn’t let go.
We recorded master cellist Sonia Bruno taking her instrument to the absolute extremes, from the utmost pianissimo super sul tasto to the most brutal bowing we’ve ever heard, creating sheer insanity and aggression.
- 320 sound files at 24 bit / 48 kHz resolution in a compact 2 GB footprint
