The Rhythms instrument can be used to create rhythmic ostinatos.

The Percussion instrument explores the dramatic percussive sounds an acoustic bass can make. Features snap pizzicato, col legno, and a set of drums, designed out of sounds from the body of the bass.

Finally The Effects is a creative collection of manipulated and extended sound design techniques useful for layering with the main instruments.

Over 2000 Samples. Includes MIDI clips for Longs, Percussion and Rhythms patches

Ben has found his 'voice' in the world of sampled instruments, and I'm glad he has decided to share his creations.
