Zodiac ist ein einzigartig klingendes virtuelles Instrument, konzipiert für Komponisten und Produzenten. Ob Film oder TV, Games, oder experimentelle Songs – Zodiac bietet originelle Sounds für jede Art von Produktion.

Detaillierte Beschreibung in englischer Sprache

No synthesizers were used to create the instruments in Zodiac. Instead, all instruments were created from organic sources such as found sounds, sonic manipulations inspired by classic Musique Concrete, Experimental and Avant Garde Music compositions, prepared or heavily processed musical instruments, and audio recordings subjected to extreme sound design techniques.

Zodiac features over 200 patches and Multis (over 8GB of uncompressed wav data), divided into six categories:

  • Pads & Atmospheres
  • Melodic Instruments
  • Bass Instruments
  • Percussive Instruments
  • Experimental Instruments
  • Zodiac Kits

Zodiac´s instruments range from beautiful and ethereal soundscapes to wildly inventive percussion and mysterious, haunting, atonal and experimental sounds that defy easy categorization. Search through Zodiac´s patch folders, and you won´t find anything like a regular bass, guitar, keyboard, or drum set. Instead, you´ll find a collection of sounds that are quite unlike those made by any standard instrument.

Not only does Zodiac feature a constellation of ready-to-use instrument patches, it´s also a powerful sound-design VI. Use Zodiac´s simple but versatile controls to dramatically alter, sculpt, or tweak and customize sounds to fit your individual style. However, you don´t even need to touch a single control to get a variety of sounds from Zodiac´s preset patches.

Zodiac is made for experimentation: hold down a key on many instrument patches and a sound loops and morphs, revealing surprising musical timbres and harmonic strata. Play an instrument one way and it has a percussive quality; play it another, and the notes expand into a pad or atmosphere. Play a patch in one octave and it sounds dreamy and surreal; play it in another octave and it behaves and sounds quite differently.

No matter what soft synths, sound modules, or VIs you already own, Zodiac will expand the palette of sounds in your sonic tool box and add a unique character to your music.

Despite its somewhat enigmatic appearance, Zodiac´s Graphic User Interface (GUI) is quite simple to use. Here´s the key:

The Control Banks

ON either side of the Zodiac logo is a control bank consisting of SIX levers. Under each lever is a single letter, which stand for the following:

(Lefthand Bank)

AMP ENV - Amp Envelope controls:

  • A - Attack
  • D - Decay
  • S - Sustain
  • R - Release
  • T - Tuning (Pitch)
  • R - Reverb amount

(Righthand Bank)

DELAY - the Delay controls:

  • T - Delay Time
  • D - Delay Damping
  • P - Dealy Panning
  • F - Delay Feedback
  • B - Bass
  • T - Treble

The Levers

Note that the four white-tipped levers on either side represent a grouping of related controls, and have a range of 0 to 10.

Note also that the red-tipped levers represent controls not related to the white groups, and that three of these have a range from -10 to +10.

Use command-click (MAC) or control-click (PC) to return any of the levers to the default setting of zero.

The Reverb Window

The window below the Zodiac logo contains a drop-down menu, with a list of fifteen very different-sounding Convolution Reverb IRs. Click on this window if you´d like to change the type of reverb on the instrument being played. Note that the R(everb) lever to the left of the window controls the amount of reverb.

Zodiac is powered by the industry-leading Kontakt engine. It is compatible with VST, AudioUnit, AAX (Pro Tools 10) and RTAS (Pro Tools 9 & 10) plug-in formats allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use.

Overall, this is one of the most interesting collections I have come across. I love the atmosphere, vibe and direction of the whole collection and applaud its recording philosophy. So it’s not only inspiring musically – there might even be a feature in this very magazine on how it was recorded.

I use this tool to create attractive environments for professional photographers slide.Of course I do not use the original sounds, even if they are very beautiful.I modify them, because sometimes I have to play them live with my Haken Audio Fingerboard.

Ich benutze die Library zur Vertonung von Games und Filmen. Interessante Klänge, die meist nach einem akustischen Ursprung klingen.
