Best Service and Sonuscore release Dark Horizon for Kontakt Player

Best Service

Best Service has announced the release of Dark Horizon, by Sonuscore, described as "A journey into the future of sound turned dark and gritty fast".

Here's what they say:

In Dark Horizon, Elysion's famous ensemble engine has been hijacked, augmented, and vaporized. With the drifting cosmic remains, Dark Horizon molds the future into a dystopian atmosphere of massive basses, cosmic arps, and drifting pads. Turn simple chords into unreal, nightmarish space-scapes, while moving the mod-wheel bends time and transports you into the dark, disparate corners of eldritch furies.

Dark Horizon includes:

  • 80 instantly playable, bass-heavy instruments.
  • Over 1.2GB of sample content.
  • 180 complex animated and fully customizable themes.

Dark Horizon is a bass-heavy synth built using synthesizers and a variety of sounds bent and warped into fascinating soundscapes and powerful low ends. For ambient, modern electronic, and experimental music, BS says Dark Horizon can bring a new power into your work with its library of grinds and grooves. For scoring and blockbusters, these sounds make for perfect tension-building underscore.

As the deep underbelly of the Elysion series, Dark Horizon is a powerful Kontakt instrument that resynthesizes orchestral sounds and sound FX along with a variety of rare analog synths and FX boxes. The resulting instruments are mind-crushing sounds, gut-wrenching themes, rhythmic arps, whirling pads, and a set of effects to push them even further beyond the imagination.

Dark Horizon features the ensemble technology from Elysion, empowering you to create complex sounds by playing simple chords:

  • Modified Ensemble Engine - Dark Horizon uses a modified version of the Elysion ensemble engine. This means you can play up to four different instrument modules at the same time, and each module allows independent controls for arpeggiators. Using the mod-wheel unlocks a filter effect that produces a great number of kinetic, digital possibilities.
  • Motion Engine - Dark Horizon comes with its own unique dynamic FX engine. It allows the fundamental customization of the instruments, e.g. steering attack or decay via MIDI CC. Besides other FX the Motion Engine includes also two Pan Steppers, breathing live and variation into every pattern in no time.
