Orchestral Tools launches Fabrik Series with Transit and Radome for SINEplayer

Orchestral Tools

Orchestral Tools have announced Fabrik, a new series of instruments for SINEplayer. The first in the series, Transit and Radome, are available now.

Orchestral Tools has built its reputation on a detailed approach to capturing every nuance of the real and synthetic instruments that make up its virtual libraries. With the new Fabrik series, the sample library designers have applied this approach and the power of their proprietary SINEplayer to a new breed of virtual instruments built from the ground-up by combining sounds from field recordings, electronic noise, and unusual acoustic instruments.

FABRIK was developed as an experimental counterpoint to our Creative Soundpack series, and also to explore our love of avant-garde sound production. These instruments offer combinations of elements captured in special locations to create truly unique sounds that each tell their own story. There's a more diverse community of creators, musicians, and performers exploring new avenues for composition and sound design than ever before—and we've been inspired by them to push the boundaries of what sampled instrumentation can be, With FABRIK, we're excited to provide these artists as well as our core OT customers with unique new instrumental voices to challenge and excite them in equal measure. We can't wait to share more as the series develops.

Transit: The pulse of the modern urban landscape (€39 but has a two-week introductory price of €29 until the 9th November 2022).

Transit utilizes authentic field recordings made of Berlin's rail traffic to create a library of instruments built from the sounds of industry and transportation. Transit includes raw percussive kits, resonant tonal and atonal sound patches, and unique noise instruments to evoke the pulse of a modern city, capable of generating driving, percussive textures, thick nocturnal pads, and gritty mechanical sounds ideal for an urban soundscape.

Radome: Haunting sounds from a cavernous past (€69 but has a two-week introductory price of €49 until the 9th November 2022).

Radome brings a dark, experimental twist to the sound of the cello. The instrument is built off of experimental cello techniques performed by Franziska Aigner and recorded inside of a cavernous radar dome at Berlin's Teufelsberg—part of an abandoned CIA listening post, and notable for its unusual echo and reverberation sounds. Combined with electronic noise, ambient textures, and distorted sonic artifacts, the result is a haunting sounding instrument for creating suspenseful drones, eerie melodies, and unique percussive textures.
