We've made bigger libraries, and arguably better ones, but this library is the essence of me, D. Smolken, the lead developer at Karoryfer Samples. It's me playing my bass my way.

Full of aggressive, rhythmic techniques, off the beaten path and not afraid to be over the top. There are more than two dozen articulations, some probably never sampled by anyone before.

Walkthrough video below. Please see the Media section to the left for demo tracks and an demonstration of some of the stranger techniques.

Because I'm never content to just sample stuff and let you play the samples back in the usual ways, there are also layering instruments here. These allow layering longs with shorts for marcato, crossfading between sul ponticello and molto sul ponticello sustains, or downright weird evolving textures going from jete to ragged tremolo to wind noise. There are hundreds of combinations possible.

Over 5800 samples and 2.2 GB.
