Tension and Drama - From The Dark Side

Give your action, sci-fi, and horror scores a blockbuster boost with the fourth volume in ProjectSAM’s acclaimed Symphobia Series. Pandora lets you summon rousing cinematic risers, foreboding falls, and earth-shattering crescendos with unmatched ease and flexibility. Pandora’s innovative Adaptive Sync quickly and effortlessly matches its huge library of articulations and effects with your sequence – so your next deadline needn’t be a nightmare. Plus, fully-customizable sound design tools help you quickly sculpt your desired timbres.

Introducing Adaptive Sync

Pre-recorded crescendos and rolls sound great. But they used to have a disadvantage: they were not very flexible. Any composer will recognize the trial-and-error process of nudging a crescendo note around until it ends in the right spot. It’s a tedious task that most of us would rather skip if we could.

Pandora Core Adaptive Sync

Symphobia 4: Pandora Core is packed with transitional samples – sounds that progress dynamically or directionally over time – ranging from powerful brass crescendos to dissonant string risers. These samples all have one thing in common: a distinct, musical ending or climax.

With Adaptive Sync, you can simply set the number of beats or seconds you need the crescendo, roll or riser to be. Tapping from a vast pool, Adaptive Sync automatically picks the best matching recording from its database and intelligently adjusts it to match your hit point exactly. Similarly, you can very quickly time a crescendo or roll with the next downbeat*. If you move a note backwards or forward, the engine will automatically switch to a better matching recording if needed. If you change your track’s tempo, Adaptive Sync will adjust accordingly.

Bold Articulations & Haunting Effects

Symphobia 4: Pandora Core offers a vast selection of big & bold, playable ensemble articulations, ranging from cellos and basses to a massive 30-player low-range Tutti Orchestra. For all crescendos and swells in there, Adaptive Sync is ready to assist.

The articulations have all been selected and recorded to add unprecedented oomph to your existing orchestral template. Symphobia 4: Pandora Core is the ultimate cinematic finishing touch.

A selection of the instruments offers exciting, optional sound layers that can be mixed in with the main articulation on-the-fly. For example, the Tutti Orchestra crescendo instrument displays controls for quickly adding gran cassa, timpani and cymbal rolls. Similarly, you can quickly add a sub sweetener to the bass drum and tutti percussion instruments.

Pandora Core Articulations

The Symphobia Series has always been the go-to place for orchestral effects. For Pandora Core, many a bone was chilled during the effects sessions. The library packs more orchestrated effects than ever, ranging from eerie violin textures to loud brass stabs. And with Adaptive Sync and Sound Design Mode, the recorded effects are now more flexible and customizable than ever. For thriller, horror and sci-fi scoring, Symphobia 4: Pandora Core is an absolute must-have.

Pandora Core’s dedicated Effects Module in combination with its Sound Design Mode gives you the power to turn any orchestral sound completely upside down, creating dark soundscapes and ominous textures utilizing the synchronized stutter, pitch envelope and other tailored effects.

Sound Design Mode

Clicking the triangle icon activates Sound Design Mode. This allows you to directly manipulate a selection of the mapped samples and highly customize your preset using the waveform control. You can jump-start sample positions, reverse playback, reverse sync to downbeat, time-stretch and more. These features are available even for instruments that use disk streaming by default. We keep building on the foundation of Sound Design Mode in future library updates.

Clicking the triangle icon again instantly takes you back to the safety of Orchestral Mode.

Pulses

Symphobia 4: Pandora Core features both Cluster Pulses and Tonal Pulses.

Cluster Pulses are idiomatic note combinations that add instant cinematic drive to your track. Each key holds a different recorded cluster of notes for the strings, brass and woodwind sections. Tonal Pulses are available for a mixed low and mid strings section. The Tonal Pulses offer additional, synchronized synth layers that can be mixed in with the orchestral pulse on-the-fly.

Pandora Core Pulses

All pulses have been recorded in 4ths, 8ths and 16ths repetitions. The Pandora Core interface allows you to switch mid-pattern, with synchronization completely intact.

Risers

No cinematic library is complete without a solid collection of tension-building string risers. For Pandora Core, multiple recording sessions were dedicated solely to this, covering lengths from 2 to 15 seconds in different playing techniques and dynamic arcs, including arco, accelerating staccatos, harmonics and sul ponticello tremolo. Here too, matching up the risers with your sequence is a breeze thanks to Adaptive Sync.

Pandora Core Risers

You can use the orchestral risers in their original form, or give them the trailer treatment by adding an idiomatic, accelerating stutter effect and some saturation using Pandora Core’s Effects Module. A number of Snapshots are included as inspiring examples. Pandora Core also includes a set of suspenseful string downers.

Combos

Mind your volume!

Combining the library’s individual articulations, effects, pulses and percussion, Pandora Core’s Combos hold some of the biggest orchestral ensembles you’ve heard yet. All elements inside a Combo are able to directly communicate with one another, allowing for musical wizardry such as the on-the-fly aligning of a col legno hit to a brass crescendo’s climax. Or a big tutti diminuendo at the end of a riser.

Combos featuring multiple Adaptive Sync instruments allow you to set the length and timing of the entire ensemble with a single set of controls.
