Grindhouse is a collection of edgy, lo-fi, and retro-cool multi-sampled instruments with loads of character and a unique 1970s exploitation movie vibe. Our goal in creating Grindhouse was to produce a virtual instrument that had the same feel as those old exploitation films: a VI that is so bad, it’s good. This library is a collection of instruments that sound like they were sampled from old vinyl LPs and recorded off a bad copy of an obscure 1970s exploitation film.
The instruments that we sampled for Grindhouse were chosen because they have a truly distinctive sound and character. We used old instruments, cheap instruments, and instruments that most sensible people would have probably taken to a music store for repairs, or thrown in the trash (in fact, at least two of the instruments in this product were recovered from a town dump).
We watched a lot of old exploitation films from the 1970s, and set out to replicate some of the vocal and instrument sounds that were used in those films. Take a look at the PTCH list below and you’ll find such B-Movie soundtrack classics as Spaghetti Western Electric Guitar, Melodramatic String Section, 1960s Cliche Jungle Movie Drums, several patches of audio clips taken from actual (public domain) Grindhouse flicks, and lots more.
