EastWest The Dark Side
THE DARK SIDE is the first of its kind: an unconventional, 40 Gigabyte, hip and exciting collection of virtual instruments, some dark and eerie, and some which have been purposely—and skillfully!—mangled, distorted, or effected out of all recognition.
THE DARK SIDE, created and produced by Doug Rogers (EastWest) and David Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips etc.), provides inspiration for all composers and artists looking for something unique and different, and of course, if you work in film, TV, and game music production, this will give you an edge to separate you from your competitors.
THE DARK SIDE includes a vast, 40 GB collection, including dark and eerie instruments, and highly processed drums and percussion, basses, guitars, ethnic, keyboard, strings, and effected instruments, all organized into these instrumental groups so you can create complete tracks:
- KEYS AND STRINGS
- ETHNIC AND CHOIRS
- INSTRUMENTS WFX
- MISC AND PERC
The Concept for The Dark Side: Creativity without limits!
"THE DARK SIDE idea came to me when I was mentoring a young alternative group about some demos they sent me. To my ears, the tracks didn't sound tough enough for their intended market, so I told them they needed to toughen up their sound," said Doug Rogers, Award-Winning Producer at EASTWEST. "I looked around for sounds that could accomplish this and found absolutely nothing, even in our own vast collection. I saw this huge, gaping hole in the market that needed to be filled. Then and there, I decided to make it my next project after my recent pristine orchestral productions, a complete aural turn-around."
