The Unfinished has released Omnisphere Horizon III, which continues the Horizon series with 128 more patches aimed at dark and light cinematic underscore. It is designed to offer everything from horror to children's fantasy: propelling basslines, ominous soundscapes, blissful pads, delicate arpeggios and a number of intriguing hybrid-acoustic instruments.
Like Horizon I and II, the aim of this library is to provide the user with a compelling collection of sounds to guide and support their scores, whatever the tone or genre. This time the Unfinished has focused more on deeper and aggressive tones, as well as playful and exotic sounds.
Firstly, there are some pads and textures taking advantage of the choir/vocal sound sources within Omnisphere. Also, there are some strange and interesting hybrid acoustic instruments, such as guitars, dulcimers, strings and pianos. Finally, there's an overall step towards the lighter side of Omnisphere, with some arps and instruments that wouldn't be out of place in a children's fantasy movie or a romantic indie flick.
Each sound has flexibility and dynamism dialled into the modwheel.
