Elysion 2 brings numerous new functionalities to our critically acclaimed ensemble technology.

Within every module you are now free to control it via envelope or arpeggiator. You can now even morph between two Layers in both the Arpeggiator and the Envelope, which lets you control up to 10 interleaved rhythms within one patch. An additional stutter feature enriches the possibilities of our Envelope even more and lets you create extremely complex rhythms by only using sustained instruments.

  • Motion Engine – Elysion 2 comes with its own unique dynamic FX engine. It allows the fundamental customization of the ambient synth instruments, e.g. steering attack or decay via Midi CC. Besides other FX the Motion Engine includes also two Pan Steppers, breathing live and variation into every pattern in no time.

If you're a regular user of the original, the upgrade to Elysion 2 is an absolute no-brainer. For potential new users, Elysion 2 provides both instant gratification and inspiration via the various animated presets. However, that instant gratification also hints at the long-term potential for those media composers willing to dig a little deeper. Sonuscore absolutely know their stuff when it comes to designing performance engines for multitimbral virtual instruments; Elysion 2 The Encounter is powerful stuff.

Elysion ist eine reich gefüllte Fundgrube facettenreicher dynamischer Klänge und beinhaltet 142 produktionsfertige Instrumente, die filmische Stimmungen von melancholisch und verträumt bis zu farbenprächtig und spektakulär in Szene setzen. Surft man durch den Klangkosmos der geschmackvollen Vorlagen, so stellt man schnell fest, dass das Modulationsrad oft ein mächtiges Werkzeug für Klangtransformationen darstellt. Dank fünffacher Klang-Engine und ausgefuchsten Arpeggiatoren sind vielschichtige, auch (poly)rhythmische Klänge machbar, die eine Verwendung über die Filmmusik hinaus erlauben.

  • Geschmackvolle produktionsfertige Vorlagen für die Filmmusik
  • Trotz vielschichtiger Architektur leicht bedienbar

Ob expressive synthetische Instrumente, Pads, pulsierende Arpeggios und Sequenzen oder vielschichtige Klanglandschaften gefragt sind: In unserem Test konnte sich Elysion als leistungsstarkes und äußerst inspirierendes Scoring-Werkzeug mit flexiblen Sounddesign-Optionen beweisen. Damit ist es die erste Wahl für hybride Orchester-Tracks. Die expressiven und zum Teil erstaunlich organischen Klänge können aber auch elektronischen Produktionen ein cinematisches Feeling spendieren. Neben der erstklassigen Audioqualität ist auch die intuitive Bedienung positiv hervorzuheben.

Elysion is another addition to the “The Orchestra” Universe. Sonuscore joined by Best Sevices addresses with Elysion the open space between orchestral and synthesizer sound and vibe. The character, tone and presets included are easy to use as they are or can be customized fitting seamlessly into any context. When you combine and mix tracks from Elysionit fit very well with other libraries.

Special features that patterns created with Elysion can be transferred by using MIDI to your DAW are key benefits of Elysion and the whole Orchestra product line up. There are many other Kontakt libraries where I wished this Elysion feature would be included to ease the task of a composer. Elysion combined or standalone with The Orchestra Complete is an absolutely excellent comprehensive ensemble full of organic and synthetic sounds. Elysion waits for you – ready-to-play.

Elysion ist eine Library, die sphärische Sounds und pulsierende Rhythmen bietet und über eine hohe Bandbreite an Klängen und arrangierten Läufen verfügt. Die Einstellmöglichkeiten sind umfangreich und die Nutzeroberfläche übersichtlich. Auch die Bedienung geht nach einer kurzen Einarbeitungszeit gut von der Hand. Die Klangqualität ist hervorragend. Besonders im Zusammenspiel mit The Orchestra weiß Elysion zu überzeugen – aber auch mit anderen Libraries und Instrumenten funktioniert sie sehr gut. Klangbastler, Sounddesigner und Musikkomponisten werden genauso viel Spaß an Elysion haben wie Hobbymusiker.


  • sehr guter Klang
  • einfache Bedienung
  • hervorragende Presets

Das Sonuscore Elysion Software-Instrument überzeugt durch eine hervorragende Klangqualität, eine leicht zu durchschauende Bedienung und durch schnell produzierte, brauchbare Ergebnisse. Elysion ist ganz sicher kein Tool für Musiker, die vor Kreativität strotzen – ich würde sagen, wer synthetisch orientierte Backings produzieren möchte, ohne allzu viel Zeit zu investieren, wird mit Elysion zufrieden sein. Aus diesem Grund gibt es auch die drei Sterne, denn wer genau das sucht, wird mit Elysion auch sehr glücklich werden.

"In writing and producing music, sometimes you need a jackhammer and sometimes you need a box of colors. Elysion is a box of colors - subtle, emotional and beautiful. It adds shades and tints that are often the hardest part of the process. And it's so easy to take a preset and own it in a way that makes it fit almost anywhere. Modern cinematic production at its best!"
