Like the other members of the CLOUD family (see CLOUD VIOLA and CLOUD CELLO) CLOUD BASS is made by ditching the conventional bow in favour of a ridiculous system of springs and pulleys that drag coarse industrial grade garden twine over the strings of the double bass to create a long, slowly distressed new bowing articulation.

Recorded with different microphone techniques and mixed with more conventional double bass articulations and a selection of multi sampled analogue sub bass waveforms CLOUD BASS is a very different beast to the usual orchestral or jazz double bass sample libraries.

Expect amazing unheard sounds - low raspy rumbling, cinematic thuds and booms, delicate whispy swarms and CLOUD BASS can easily do a half decent LOVE CATS 


'This is mad and I love it !' Andy Britton - composer and producer (Baby Strange, Longfellow, Neon Waltz, Amy MacDonald)
