Get all four Photosynthesis libraries together. Included in the bundle:
Sphere is a powerful sample library for Kontakt, aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need gorgeous evolving pads, dark soundscapes, rhythmic underscore, and creative instrument effects. Watch the overview video.
Inspired by ambient music, post-rock, and artists like Jon Hopkins, Sigur Ros, Ólafur Arnalds, This Will Destroy You, and M83.
Mystic is the second in the Photosynthesis line of Kontakt libraries, an ambient cello library aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need otherworldly pads and soundscapes, unique cello articulations, and creative instrument effects. Watch the overview video.
Mystic is derived entirely from nearly 6 hours of cello recordings, processed and twisted into over 120 beautiful Kontakt instruments. Alongside the processed instruments are raw solo cello articulations. This isn't a standard cello library, so there's no legato or staccato patch, but rather unique playing styles like artificial harmonics, harmonic tremolos, sustained ricochets, sul ponticello, harmonic glissandos, and more.
Embers is the third in the Photosynthesis line of Kontakt libraries. Embers is focused on dark, distorted cinematic sounds still planted in the ambient mindset. Heavy growling basses, distant organic instruments, wavering pads, and rhythmic synths. Inspired by artists like Sigur Ros (especially Kveikur), M83, This Will Destroy You, Hammock, Daughter, Hans Zimmer, and Jon Hopkins. Watch the overview video.
The fourth and final Photosynthesis Kontakt library, Realms is an extensive musical toolkit of bowed metallic sounds. Recorded with rich detail, metal groans and screeches with tones ranging from terrifying to lovely. Realms encompasses a wide selection of raw bowed metal objects, stunningly alive pads, and horrific soundscapes. Watch the overview video.
Realms includes seven bowed objects with a total of 41 sound "menus," each menu comprised of many individual recordings that can be opened and transformed individually, as well as an additional set of horror-oriented "effects menus" for music in the shadows.
Alongside the bowed objects are natural pads created directly from the bowed sound sources, and processed keys/pads/rhythms/soundscapes created with external mangling.
The Photosynthesis Bundle totals 8.8GB, with over 400 Kontakt .nki instruments. It's powered by the free Photosynthesis Engine, which allows extensive control over shaping the sounds, and is designed to make importing your own samples and creating your own instruments easy.
