Powerhouse
of Rock

Legato bass and guitar samples with round robin staccato, both clean and distorted. Drum kits that pop and can be effortlessly shaped into larger than life grooves. If you need your music to rock, plain and simple, this library will give you everything you need. With a few keyswitches, you can seamlessly construct realistic performances without a complicated UI. Aside from a simple effects control interface with utilities like envelope, reverb and delay controls, there’s no extra editing needed to maximize the character and impact of each performance.

Ministry of Rock - Conert Background

Don't be fooled by the acronym: MOR is definitely NOT middle of the road. It's a screeching, howling, booming, clanging, clattering, bashing noise-fest that will fool your neighbors into thinking you have a tame death-metal band lurking in your studio. It's hard to imagine any rock library getting much more powerful than this.

Ministry of Rock - Guitarist

An Entire Rock Band

In One

Between basses, drums and guitars, Ministry of Rock lets you build out an entire band that can execute every lick, effect and fill you can ask of it. If you find yourself without any live musicians but need to rival the sound of live players in the box, you’ll get every tool you could need in your arsenal. This is monumental for film and game composers who aren’t able to add live performers to their scores, helping to bridge the gap between idea and execution. Every articulation and program was reverse-engineered from actual performances, giving you an easy framework to build authentic-sounding performances in your DAW.

Ministry of Rock - Conert Background

The whole library is like that: start loading programs and you're guaranteed to find something cool. If anyone thinks for a minute that there's no reason for another sample library with drums, guitars, and bass, Ministry of Rock proves them wrong. This library is a perfect example of why sampling is unlikely to be replaced completely by synthesizers, no matter how close their emulations get: you can feel the energy in every note.

Basses

When you need to support an entire rhythm section with a strong tonal foundation (and throw in a few licks for good measure), this collection conjures up the heaviest bass sounds in all of rock. Keyswitches allow you to jump between muted plucks, slides, and smoothly connected open notes, making this a fully featured collection capable of standing up to a live performance.

Fender 5 String

Round and punchy, this classic unmodified 5 string Fender Jazz bass makes itself heard without stealing much room in the mix. A great choice when you need something a bit tamer that still knows how to show its colors.

Ministry of Rock - Fender 5 String Bass

Fender P-Bass

With a classic bite and sharp attack, this hot-rodded Fender P-Bass lends you a vintage color that’s perfect for solo features and heavy attitude.

Ministry of Rock - Fender P-Bass

Kubicki

This is the famous rock metal bass from the 80’s with a nice crunch in the high mids and a subtle attack. Ideal when you need a bit of dirt without such a hard-hitting punch.

Ministry of Rock - Kubicki Bass

Musicman
HCB Demo

With a sharp falloff on each attack, this bass is all about hefty punch with little sustain, making it the best fit staccato, accented passages.

Ministry of Rock - Fender P-Bass

Spector

Fantastically well-made, this Spector Bass is an easy choice when you want a long sustain with a lot of character, and perfect for a bass drone when you need to stay out of the way of the drums.

Ministry of Rock - Drummer

Drums

A versatile collection of meaty toms, thumping kicks, crisp snares and cymbals that have a healthy dose of sizzle. When you’re laying down drum tracks for rock, you need them to be tight, articulate and aggressive, all things that Ministry of Rock will immediately prove itself to be. Beyond traditional rock songs, this collection is also perfectly suited to hybrid orchestral music, making it a no-brainer choice for media composers.

Ayotte

Intimate and dry, the Ayotte kit is a reliable choice for acoustic or folk rock. It doesn’t overstate its presence, but its quick attacks punch through a mix with ease.

Gretsch Black

Used to make Metallica’s “Black” record, this Gretsch kit is excellent for metal. The attacks are strong, the body is tight, and the releases get out of the way before the next strike comes in.

Ludwig

Roomy with a crisp attack, this Ludwig kit is a great balance of power and ambience, and will fit in easily with a larger ensemble.

Ministry of Rock - Ludwig Drums

Octaplus

Featuring a total of 9 toms, these 70’s Octaplus drums are big and boast a healthy sustain. A wild fat kit with a little more room.

Ministry of Rock - Guitarist

Guitars

There are countless ways to use this collection, but one of the best ways is to layer muted notes and chords with a heavily compressed drum kit, allowing it to punch through and create a massive wall of sound almost impossible to distinguish from a live performance. You can easily use keyswitches to alternate between muted chunking and open power chords, or switch over to lead guitars and solo through a combo of pinch harmonics, slides and dramatic vibratos.

7 String Ibanez

The ultimate death metal guitar, the 7 string Ibanez is as dirty and crunchy as you could ask for and is perfect for ultra-coarse attacks and commanding sustains.

Ministry of Rock - 7 String Ibanez Guitar

Gibson J-160

An old acoustic favorite used by many famous rock bands from the 70’s, this classic works wonders for mellow ballads and folk.

Ministry of Rock - Gibson J-160

Les Paul Deluxe

The king of overdriven glory. This Les Paul Deluxe loves to be punished, and is always a reliable choice for hanging on open chords.

Ministry of Rock - Les Paul Deluxe

Les Paul Standard

A great complement to its Deluxe counterpart, with an added bit of fuzz and grit.

Ministry of Rock - Les Paul Standard

Strat

This guitar has a bandpassed tone ideal for classic rock and is a great way to create contrast and tension during intros and interludes.

Ministry of Rock - Fender Stratocaster

Telecaster

Clean electric, with just the right amount of dirt, the Telecaster is great for softer songs that don’t quite roll over into full acoustic.

Ministry of Rock - Fender Telecaster

Ministry of Rock - Conert Background

An all around rock library that is unmatched. The drums, bass, and guitars all fit together perfectly. The ability to tweak the amp settings, eq, and everything else about the sounds via the easy interface is another plus. Just messing with the amp setups yields very different results within the same instrument.

It's a screeching, howling, booming, clanging, clattering, bashing noise-fest that will fool your neighbours into thinking you have a tame death-metal band lurking in your studio. It's hard to imagine any rock library getting much more powerful than this, and bearing in mind the enduring popularity of the genre, I have a feeling it will be one of Quantum Leap's biggest sellers.
