Granular Expeditions, our debut soundest for Arturia's Pigments2 synth.
The inspiration for this pack came from a recording we made of an ancient Clavicord, a family heirloom. The idea was to make a pristine sounding Kontakt instrument from the samples. But we got side tracked with Covid and ended up processing and mangling it out of recognition in Pigments.
Other source material included environmental sounds from our travels to the outer reaches of the west coast of Scotland and beyond, all processed and mangled into musical form. The bank includes 60 presets of sequences, hits, pads and sFX, keys and bass.
With this Soundest we set out to create the varied sounds of metal objects. From a slinky to a large oil drum. A heavy metal pan to garden utensils, various music boxes and rusty keyed instruments. We hit everything then mangled it in Pigments!
As with all our pigments banks, we made extensive use of the 4 macros. So be sure to check them out.
There are 62 presets in total comprising of pads and soundscapes, sequences, mallets, plucked, bass and a few one shot SFX.
Galvanized is our debut sound set for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2. 101 patches of entirely unique sounding content, ranging from gritty drones and melodic structures to organic percussive phrases and sound effects, Galvanized is a highly stylised toolkit for constructing dark and industrial landscapes for anything from TV, Film and Trailers to ambient sound design and underground electronica. The original soundsources comprise of a collection of keyed and struck instruments including kalimbas, a clavichord, music boxes and pitched metallic objects. Not to mention our trusty selection of hardware synths and modular rig. All heavily processed and sequenced into melodic and rhythmical elements, these sounds form the bedrock of any track or underscore with an edgy and intense character.
If you are looking for emulations or sound alike’s then perhaps you should look elsewhere. If you are after creating an entirely unique soundscape and are into making left-field stand out from the crowd, then this bank is for you.
