“As a professional composer for film and television you are in a constant search for good virtual instruments and sample libraries to help you to create your sound and express yourself. Nordisk Kontrabass is one of those libraries that stands out as something new. Something exciting and fresh to integrate with your more standard orchestral libraries.
It gives you the contemporary and colorful universe of the solo double bass.
Perfect for subtle, nuanced and organic underscore but also as an exciting and fresh sonic element to build your score around”

As a trailermusic composer you are always in need of unique sounds and this sample library has lots of outstanding articulations I have never heard before. Nordisk Kontrabass works not only as an authentic sounding instrument - it's also really great as a solid sound design tool.
