Welcome to UNTOPIA - a new Sound Dust library of exquisite filth and beauty for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2.
200 patches and 80 new sound sources.
UNTOPIA is inspired by Joy Division producer Martin Hannett, the brilliantly mad composer of Utopia, Cristobal Tapia de Veer, and Terry Riley's cosmic hippy wigouts. There's a bit of Jon Hassell and Brian Eno's fourth world aesthetic in there too. Add the grubby wonderment that makes Sound Dust, you know, Sound Dusty - and you have UNTOPIA.
Expect strange disjointed and alluring voices, grainy strings, finely sculpted noises, organic grit and grime, slurring mellotrons, drunken string machines, bent synths, keyboards amped to 11, low ebbing throbs and a healthy selection of other beatific cathedrals of sound. Click here to see and hear much more (video not there yet, but won't be long).
200 new patches, fully databased and for easy access prefixed with usefully untopian catagories...
ARCANA – generally vocal based sounds that refer specifically to the work of Cristobal Tapia de Veer
BLOW – windy gems
BOW – real strings, well they were real once
BPM – use the arpegiator or envelopes for beat synced mayhem
DMX – drum machines
DST – noisey distortion based sounds
GTR – yup, guitars
HIT – single thuds and thumps
KEY – things made into polyphonic keyboardy things
LOW – big bottoms
ODD – useful but unlikely and hard to catagorise
ORG – organs and organic organ like organs
PAD – big pads
SCAPE – interesting noise/soundscapes
SLOW – long slooow builders
SM – string machines
THROB – beat synced throbbing
TRON – mellotron style pseudo instruments
