Hello purveyors of fine sound,

I'm very happy to announce a new sound bank for U-he Zebra2 synth. This one is for all film, and game music composers:


Cinematic Pulsation


64 presets designed to infuse film and game music soundtracks with pulsating energy, drive, rhythm and suspense. Choose from percussive sequences created with Zebra’s multi-stage envelopes, powerful pulsating bass layers that add deep foundations to your scores, dark and noisy under-layers, or high frequency, bright ‘sweetenings’ to balance busy arrangements with piercing, sizzling motion elements.

From exotic percussion, war drums, to synthetic motion sequences, this set of patches provides a wide selection of finely crafted ‘cinematic pulsation’ sounds. Trigger a note and hear an inspiring rhythmic sound!

Each preset benefits from modulation assigned to all four XY pads as well as the modulation wheel and aftertouch. You will never have to access the deep synthesis parameters in Zebra2, simply move the XY pad nodes to customise the sound to your liking, often morphing it into a totally new timbre.

Check out the video below for a closer look at a selection of 18 presets. You can hear how these presets sound as well as check out the interaction of the YX pads, the mod wheel and aftertouch assignments:

The following Soundcloud demo shows Cinematic Pulsation presets in context of full movie scores courtesy of Niko Paterakis. You can hear how the percussive sequences create the necessary drive, add a sense of energy and adventure, helping the orchestral sounds ‘sit’ on solid rhythmic foundations:

The sound set is now available at a special introductory price of €24 (Euro). Normal price is €30.

You are one step away from elevating your movie soundtracks with powerful new rhythms and sequences :D

Hey thank you,

Maybe I should add that demo 3 and 8 in that Soundcloud link use more than just the presets from Zebra. These are proper scores made by a film composer and as such use many more sounds. They function to show how the presets can fit in a real soundtrack score. However the other remaining tracks in the Soundcloud demo contain only the Zebra2 'Cinematic Pulsation' presets (for the rhythm, percussion, not the orchestral brass, strings, etc) . The YouTube video shows 18 presets solo, and it's a better way to see how these sound.

Later, I will upload a complete demo of all presets in this sound set.

Slightly delayed but here at last, a demo of all the presets from this sound set:

Each preset is played very briefly to keep the length of the demo short.
The YouTube video above is better for a detailed look at a selection of 18 presets.
