Triple Spiral Audio has announced the pre-order for The Stand, a VPS Avenger Expansion. Pre-order price is €32 and upon release there will be a one week introduction price of €37 and the full price will be €45 (+VAT). The release is scheduled for 23 November.
The Stand is a new expansion for VPS Avenger and contains 150+ presets and 5 drum kits. Everything is created from original content and the soundset includes granular soundsources, multi samples, one shot samples (embedded in the presets), wavetables and custom created wave shapes.
The Stand is all about contrast. The clash between old and new, dark and light, good and evil. Lush and sparkling pads are contrasted by dark and mysterious evolving pads. Light and rich textures against haunting and shimmering soundscapes. Flourishing bells and keys against nasty distorted growls.
The expansion found its inspiration in the works of Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Jon Hopkins, Sigur Ross, Brian Eno, Jeremy Soule Ramin Djawadi and Mac Quale.
