Sonic Elements has announced the release of Sapphire II, a new patch set for Rob Papen's BLUE. This is sound designer Shaun Wallace's follow-up to his Sapphire soundset from Nucleus SoundLab.
Sapphire II seeks to build upon the legacy and synthesis trickery of the original Sapphire. Shaun says "Sapphire II pushes BLUE to its limits exploring every modulation and synthesis possibility for a truly unique sonic experience".
Sapphire II's sonic arsenal ranges from ambient to VGM based sounds. In addition, the sounds vary from aggressive leads, fat basses, somber keys, and ethereal bliss with rhythmic and microtonal sensibilities molded into every patch. The sounds were designed with both the professional and hobbyist in mind. Users will find patches prime for layering and also one note wonders.
Sapphire II contains 160 presets for Rob Papen's BLUE. It is compatible with BLUE 1.7+.
Sapphire II costs $27.95.
