Camel Audio has released Biolabs Absynth Research Sounds Volumes 4-6 'Darkness and Light', which features nearly 400 presets for Native Instruments' Absynth and includes a 350MB specially-created sample library. The sounds have been programmed by Biomechanoid, one of the principle authors of the Absynth factory sounds.
Camel Audio are also releasing a new set of presets from Tim Conrardy and will shortly be providing an additional bonus set of remix sounds, bringing the total for the entire set to over 1000 presets with a 650MB sound library of exotic samples.
Biolabs Absynth Research takes advantage of Absynth 3's advanced features, including sample playback, granular synthesis and surround sound. Every preset has at least five specially selected controllers, to give you fast access to the most important parameters. These can be used to mix, morph and mutate the sounds providing an enormous range of sounds.
The library includes three volumes of 128 sounds:
- Bio Synthesis II is a collection of basses, pads and synths.
- Bio Rhythmics II offers a variety of playable leftfield loops which you can warp from dark to light, and mix from minimal to complex using specially programmed realtime controllers.
- Bio SFX and Atmospheres II is a collection of superior special effects and atmospheres, perfect for film and TV soundtrack work.
