Dark Ambient is the second in the series of Analogue Workshop sample libraries from renowned sound designer Ian Boddy. Featuring 300 samples and over 500 Kontakt patches culled from his collection of vintage and analogue modular synths, these sounds dwell very much in the darker realms of ambience and electronic music.

The patches run the full gamut from subsonic drones, evolving pads and haunting modulations to weird, surreal atmospheres. The one-shot section contains a range of crunchy, deep, weird short percussive sounds and FX that can be used to spice up any drum kit or add impact to key moments in your musical compositions.

A new custom designed graphical interface has been scripted in Kontakt 4 to provide even more variation & programming opportunities in the way the sounds are presented. Kontakt 4 libraries are fully compatible in later versions of Kontakt. This is rounded out by a set of impulse responses for the convolution reverb taken directly from analogue modules such as spring reverbs & bucket-brigade delays to further enhance the overall sound character.

Press Quotes

"Dark Ambient is certainly not a modern-sounding sample collection but that is its strength. If you are getting a little tired of digital synth sounds and want something raw, retro and dark, here it is" - Sound on Sound

"The simple but effective Kontakt script makes the perfect host, and we'd label this a bargain." - Computer Music (Rating; 9/10)
