The Dark Side from EastWest is a virtual instrument created and produced by Doug Rogers (EastWest) and David Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips). It is an unconventional and exciting collection of instruments, some dark and eerie, and some which have been purposely - and skillfully - mangled, distorted, or "effected" out of all recognition.
The 40GB collection includes highly processed drums and percussion, basses, guitars, ethnic, keyboard, strings and effected instruments, all organized into instrumental groups, making it easier to create complete tracks. Many individual instruments were originally processed through 5 or 6 effects units, some of the vintage and esoteric tube variety owned by the producers.
The distorted and mangled instruments are designed to stand out in a mix, and/or disturb the senses. It will provide inspiration for all composers and artists looking for something unique and different, whether working in music, film, TV, or game music production.
