Subfrost by Venus Theory [Decent Sampler]

(2 customer reviews)


Merging ultra high fidelity recording with a classic instrument, Subfrost explores the sound of a dulcimer at new cinematic depths.


Subfrost is a simple twist on a classic sound: the Appalachian mountain dulcimer combined with ultra-high sample rate recordings pitched to extreme depths creating gorgeous cinematic textures and plucks.

User Interface for the Subfrost Sample Library

Sampled at 192k and recorded at 32bit with high-fidelity measurement microphones, Subfrost brings the Appalachian dulcimer to new depths by creating morphed and twisted versions of the source material. Designed to create cinematic underbeds or add a creative twist to your project, this library is as much a layering tool as it is a standalone scoring companion when you need something just a bit different.


What’s Inside:

  • 1 DS Library File
  • 13 Pitch Warped Patches
  • 10 Granular Texture Patches
  • 10 ‘Natural’ Patches
  • Dual IR Engines (Reverb + Amp Sim)

    I personally lean more Lynch than EDM, and this is probably the Venus Theory library that aligns closest to my subjective tastes: moody, multi-layered, evolving pads with a lot of control around where those sounds are spacially.

    Some of the UI is intuitive, but there are aspects that, like other VT plugins, I wish had text labels. ADSR is obvious enough, but the rest can still require some re-discovery if I’ve left the realm of VT plugins for a bit.
