WREMENA Two by Elementary Sounds is a beautiful playable Fender 1971 Jazz Bass that has a soft, vintage and melodious tone.
2. Pedals – specially selected bass and guitar pedals in the chain, giving a unique tender sound
The selection of guitars WREMENA was created to be soft, vintage and melodious. It has an intimate, almost invisible tone. We tried to make it as natural as possible and without any unnecessary functionality which in our opinion turned out to be an unusual alternative to the rest of the virtual guitars and sample libraries existing on the market today.
One of our main goals was to create instruments that anyone who doesn’t really know how to play a guitar, could still without any effort make sound beautiful, natural and with character.
PRS is our very first and so far only sampled guitar, but more to come very soon. Already at the very beginning of the recording process of PRS, we thought about instruments with which, in the future, it would be possible to form a company for it. The strategy is to bring together guitars that would be quite different from each other and find their similarities, combine them into one whole: something thoughtful, intimate and mysterious, but at the same time confident and daring.
This bass was recorded in a completely different way from Wremena One. While it has only 2 sound lines, it’s not that simple.
The first line is a clean one – from the guitar straight to the tube preamp and compressor and then to the tube equalizer and 2 consecutive Soviet transformers. Having gone through this rich chain, it seemed as if the sound had travelled to us from the 70s, becoming juicy, dense, but at the same time gentle.
In the second line we used specially selected bass and guitar pedals on the sound. If at this point you have a question: ‘what’s new and unusual could be found in a bass guitar?’, the answer is the unique tenderness of this instrument, which we managed to achieve.
We always aim to make all instruments sound as lively as it can be. So when you try to process your recorded samples as little as possible to keep them natural, it intuitively becomes very important how they are played, as well as the atmosphere in which they were recorded. In this regard, it’s important to note that both guitars were played by a wonderful musician and our good friend Victor Pshanichny. The feeling of trust based on our long-standing friendship, which was constantly present in the studio during the recording process, undoubtedly reflected in the quality, character and naturalness of the sound of WREMENA.
The design of the plugin itself was inspired by Suprematist art. If you look at some of Kazimir Malevich’s paintings, such as ‘Suprematist composition’ or ‘White on White’, they are all to some extent chaotic, but on the other hand united. We tried to embody exactly the same feeling of opposition and unity in the sound of our instruments.
