Ambient Synths for Kontakt
Sonespheres is a series of uniquely sound-designed atmospheric synths, textural pads, evolving soundscapes, nuanced drones and tonal ambiences for Native Instruments Kontakt. Each volume explores film and tv composer and long-time Soundiron collaborator Blake Ewing's unique creative vision, delving into deeper aesthetics, stylized niches and specialty production concepts. This volume was crafted using an array of acoustic and electronic instruments, with a full array of essential user controls to unlock virtually limitless creative potential.
Blake brings to his craft a brilliant ear for nuanced layering, rich detail, fluid textures and powerful emotional weight. Blake is an American composer with a concentrated interest in creating music for visual media. His compositions have been commissioned, licensed and well received by film directors, producers, videographers, sample developers, advertising firms, music supervisors and fans from around the world. He believes in music - and in its wonderful power to support and elevate storytelling.
The intuitive user interface gives you flexible control features for two independent sample source modules, with category and preset selection menus for each. Both modules provide automatable controls for volume, attack, start offset, release, bass, treble, pitch, pan, filter type, filter resonance, filter frequency, LFO shape, LFO rate, LFO tempo-sync, LFO target parameter, LFO depth and LFO attack time.
