8Dio – Bazantar (KONTAKT)

By | January 10, 2016



The Bazantar is a custom five-string acoustic bass, fitted with an additional twenty-nine sympathetic strings and four drone strings. The instrument possesses a melodic range of over five octaves, while its sympathetic range spans four octaves. This results in an interplay between melodic, sympathetic, and drone strings which weaves an unexpected landscape of resonance that is remarkably rich in texture. The 8DIO Bazantar is a deep-sampled virtual instrument containing over 2.700 samples divided into two main categories: Multi-samples and phrase-samples. The multi-samples consists of both plucked and bowed representations of the instrument.

    i’ve noticed that this torrent was created incorrectly. it contains some uTorrent-munged file names among the files in the Samples folder (as a regular expression: Sus_VIB_Far_000[2-6].*[t1]$ should locate them). i’ve created a corrected .torrent file, that lists the actual .ncw files that *should* be requested/transmitted, but i have absolutely no clue how to go about propagating it.

    it’s been a *real* long time since i did this sort of thing, but i could try compressing the .torrent, then uuencoding it (or mime-encoding, or whatever seems best), and then posting it here and maybe a couple other sites… would anyone care, though, if i did?

    i’m posting this note mostly for the benefit of the site admin, hoping for advice on how to handle this… any help?
