Download “Bowed Glass Clouds” By Riot Audio For FREE!


VSTBuzz is offering the Bowed Glass Clouds (€33 value) cinematic sound library by Riot Audio as a free download until July 5th, 2020.

Bowed Glass Clouds was featured on Bedroom Producers Blog last year when Riot Audio offered it as a free download for a limited time only.

The library features a collection of ethereal pads and cinematic soundscapes. The sounds were crafted by processing recordings of bowed glass bowls and jars, a vacuum cleaner, and an Ebow-driven resonator guitar. Thanks to Native Instruments Kontakt and its powerful sampling engine, the user can fully customize the included sounds using a range of sound design tools.

Riot Audio provides a custom user interface that takes advantage of Kontakt’s AET Filter technology to morph between multiple sound layers. In the case of Bowed Glass Clouds, the user can morph between Layer A and Layer B, with direct control over the crossfade, morphing amount, and morphing speed parameters. Both sound layers feature a trio of octave layers that can be controlled individually.

The sounds can be shaped even further using Bowed Glass Clouds’ FX section. The user can adjust the distortion level, band-pass filter’s peak frequency, delay time, and reverb length. As the final shaping tool, a three-band equalizer is provided to improve the tonal balance on the output.

Bowed Glass Clouds is available for free download via VSTBuzz for a limited time only. A valid email address is required to complete the checkout process. You will need the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.8 or higher (currently on sale) to use the library.

  1. Thank you for your timely notices. Unfortunately in some cases it is so cumbersome to redeem these products, that the time it takes to do so is more valuable than saving money.

  2. To download this about 60Mb but worth 30€ library I have to download a 100+Mb installer first,and before that you have to do many sign up and redeem thing.Just like playing a RPG and finish a complicated mission,and all you got it’s just some trash equipment.

  3. I appreciate a freebie, but lots of hoop jumping to get this one:

    First go through the whole purchase checkout process at VST Buzz just to get serial

    Then go through the whole purchase checkout process again at Riot Audio just to get a link to download a download portal

    Then download portal have to be installed, just to get at 60MB sample library

    My feeling is that this kind of freebie giveaway is the vendors getting beta testing of their systems for free
