Renegade is a drums and sound design library designed for producers of nu-metal, EDM, rock, pop and synthwave. We also aimed to make this a serious asset for modern underscoring with atmospheric percussion/synth pulses, brooding basses and experimental acoustic content.
As always, dialing in the drum mixes was incredibly important to get right. Rogue is the tight mix, Faction is the workhorse mix and Juggernaut is the roomy mix. Inspired by the Gorgon preset from our Medusa library, we provided a fourth mix for Renegade that pushed us to our absolute mixing limits — Anarchy. That mix will peel the varnish off a foot locker.
For the Guitars & Bass section of Renegade, we’ve included a distorted eight-string guitar, distorted bass guitar and two nylon guitar patches. For the eight-string and bass, you can crossfade the live eighth-note patterns between palm-mute and full-open. With harder velocity hits, you can trigger a set of isolated samples (with up to four round robins) to act as your ‘ending’ notes or to further customize your guitar line.
We also recorded, processed and programmed a ton of sound design material but only included the efforts that we found inspiring, useful and complimentary to Renegade as a whole. What we ended up with was a curated collection of 31 multi-genre patches consisting of processed analog synths, bass and acoustic/electric guitars, live ensemble/solo percussion pulses, analog kits and more.
