Little Low

An immersive and flexible pad-based instrument!

The story

Little Low is a warm and full sounding sample instrument that works perfectly  as a doubling voice for you subs, as well as an energetic arpeggio part.

This instrument was created by using a single clarinet note in its low register, recorded in Sydney, Australia in 2014. Each knob controls a different Kontakt group that has undergone a very different plug-in chains.

As the name suggests, the Little Low has a a powerful low register. However, the upper register is full of movement, making it a versatile new choice to you creative toolkit. It’s up to you whether you use each patch by itself of in any crazy combination you can imagine. As long as you have fun with it, that’s what matters.

This video includes a short walkthrough of the instrument.

  • Theatre seat rumbler!

    I love the drama of this one. Excellent character from just 5 samples! The GUI is clean and easy to use, and the instrument is indeed great in the low register. Turn it up loud to feel it rumble under your feet!

  • Rich and full pads and keys

    This sound has lots of potential uses, but it also has a few quirks. The basic idea is that you're able to mix five different samples to varying degrees, and then share the attack and release and change the delay feedback. The sounds are all generally rich, playable, and inspiring. There are a few quirks to this instrument, however. The "Main" and "Arcade"samples extend from C1 to C6, which is pretty standard. The "Distorted," "Reverb," and "Tremolo" samples, however, run only from C1 to C4. So, if you find yourself playing those top two octaves, the sound is going to change if you play lower than C4. It's also important to note that some of the samples Main, Reverb, and Arcade were recorded with a fairly long attack, so regardless of the position of the attack slider, you're going to get a really long attack. You have the choice between a long and a longer attack, really. I think these are usable and interesting sounds. The GUI shows some promise as well of something that's on its way to being stylish and functional, but just isn't there quite yet. Overall, this is a really nice little library, though.

  • Distortion Madness

    First of all im happy to see the attack slider is working on this pad. It wasn't working for me on the KL Pad 1. This is another sound that really comes alive with the effects, mainly the distortion. You can achieve several different sounds with this instrument thanks to the GUI controls that are pretty nice. The delay feedback is still going as I'm typing this review which is fun. However, I don't know if its just on certain samples, or with certain effects but when i hold down a chord, after a while these weird rhythmic pitch bends come in which are very jarring to me and kind of ruin this instrument for me. I wish there was an option to turn these off or if theres something im missing about this please let me know.

  • Deep rumble

    It is, as the name implies, very low and bassy and on some speakers can cause a little rumble, so some care is required when using here that makes me unsure about how usable this is in practice. The effort however is great, and I think that when pitched around this may work better.
