We purposely turned up the volume to create and capture feedback. We also experimented with live musicians playing along with the feedback. These captures were then manipulated, processed & tweaked in our signature style. What resulted is a library that defies simple categorization. We have organized this madness into Drones, Pads, Leads, Basses & Rhythmic Pulses.
For Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.
Feedback Drones is a powerful, dynamic and inspiring library that will blow you away. No matter the type of music you make be it cinematic scoring, sci-fi, horror, ambient, suspense new age, pop, trailer work, dance music, beats and beyond, we strongly believe you’ll find a wide range of ways to use Feedback Drones for your music creation.
These feedback drones are one to two minutes long and are available in their full length in the included WAV pack as well as the drone category of Kontakt patches. In addition, many of the drone patches feature extra control to move from one drone to another via the mod wheel. This gives you lots of creative choices & ways to sculpt the sound. From these drones we honed in on different start points along the way to highlight the musical performances and motives from the manipulated musical additions. The drones also were a starting point to create melodic leads, plucky keys, synth sounding basses, engine produced rhythmic phrases and a plethora of amazing sounding pads.
Microphones were set up in our acoustically treated studio to record the output of the feedback while also recording various instruments in real time that were captured along with the feedback. These feedback moments were then manipulated, chopped up, effects added, reversed, pitched, etc to create unique soundscapes. Various combinations of the feedback were combined to create bigger moments as well as retaining some of the smaller simpler feedback drones. These various combinations are all represented in the library giving you a lot of control and choice.
“This library is like the BLT of sample libraries. Never a bad time for a BLT. It goes with everything and makes everyone happy. I absolutely love how much variety you get here. The drones have a surprisingly awesome mix depth along with a diverse range. The leads are so much fun to play with and they can sit well in just about any soundscape. There’s honestly something for everything.”

“When I buy a new library I usually hope to find one or two sounds that I can add to the arsenal. With Feedback Drones, I want to add them all! Almost every patch I opened inspired an idea and I have barely scratched the surface of what this library is capable of! Will definitely be putting this to use right away.”
