The Dark Side; the darker counterpart to the beautiful virtual instrument, Ambient Minimalism. Ambient Minimalism 2 is a loop and sample-based virtual instrument that can be used to quickly and easily create mysterious and unsettling ambient soundscapes, backing tracks, and cinematic cues. Each instrument patch in Ambient Minimalism 2 contains dozens of loops and one-shots, giving you a wide variety of musical elements and motifs to work with. All instrument patches were recorded in the same key, or designed to work with other dissonant material, so you can mix and match any patches and easily achieve highly musical results. This library features eleven multi-sampled instrument patches including all sorts of dark and creepy pianos, Upright bass, wurlitzer, detuned glass, ominous horns, and others. Additionally, a set of twelve key-switches (colored red) can be used to change the key of any patch or musical element (loop, pad, etc), allowing you to play in any key and create chord progressions or modulations with the touch of a finger.
