Jeremiah Pena has released Photosynthesis Vol 1 - Sphere and Photosynthesis Engine for Kontakt.
Photosynthesis Vol 1 - Sphere is a sample library aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need evolving pads, dark soundscapes, rhythmic underscore, and creative instrument effects. The sounds are inspired by ambient music, post-rock, and artists like Jon Hopkins, Sigur Ros, Ólafur Arnalds, This Will Destroy You, and M83.
Sphere includes 127 Kontakt instruments, a 1.85GB library of samples in .wav format, and 16 Guitar Rig 5 Pro presets.
The instruments come in six categories:
- 21 Organic Instruments.
- 31 Pads.
- 27 Rhythmic Instruments.
- 16 Soundscapes.
- 13 Synths.
- 19 Unprocessed Instruments.
Price: $35. Full Kontakt 5.1.0 or later is required to run the library.
