      Dark Ascents

      Dark Ascents is a collection of glissando violin risers recorded off the cuff with copious amounts of whiskey. Originally meant as a basic group of risers to layer into productions, they became a different animal as time went on. It is, on the surface, an instrument of violin risers and falls - however it’s highly encouraged to explore it as an instrument of chaos, especially by tweaking the Main Controls, and diving into the Glitch functions found on the Motion page. This can result in anything from unsettling pitched-down textures, chopped/glitchy madness, to tempo-synced buzzing of electric lights and horrific machinery.


      Features:

      Build/shape a stack of violin risers with a quickness

      Generate pointillistic, grainy wildness with the Glitch functions

      Pitch and Panning set individually per-note, or globally for all

      Chaos is encouraged with automatable randomization features, including Pitch, Sample Start, Pan, and Glitch table

      Instant save/recall of certain parameters for quick explorations, or automating between two states

      Custom convolution reverbs from around the Seattle area

      Fast tweaks with an intuitive GUI and FX chain

      Pitch LFO, and Chop functions for stutters - syncable to DAW

      Built-in adaptive EQ to help mitigate low frequency build up as the pitch drops

      General weirdness, duh

      Specifications:

      349 MB installed

      256 violin risers/descents recorded at 48KHz/24-bit

      8 NKI Instruments

      6 Multis

      4 glissando articulations (Normal, Sul Ponticello, Tremolo, Sul Ponticello Tremolo)


      Requirements:

      There are two versions of Dark Ascents:

      • One is for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1.
      • The other is for the full version of Kontakt 6 (and beyond). 

      Please note that the free Kontakt Player will not work with these libraries.

       Either version is available for purchase. If you are currently using Kontakt 5.8.1 and end up upgrading your full version of Kontakt to 6.0, your existing download of Dark Ascents should function without issue. HOWEVER , the version of Dark Ascents for Kontakt 6.0 takes advantage of Native Instruments’ Replika Delay - if after you’ve upgraded Kontakt you decide you want to get the version of Dark Ascents that has Replika, shoot us an email on the contact page (or info@bloodcellsaudio.com). Let us know your name and the email address you used to purchase from Gumroad - we’ll hook you up.
