unEarthed sampling has released Esper Synth, a Kontakt library that sets out to accurately re-create some of the sounds heard from Vangelis's Bladerunner score, such as the brassy lead and pad found in "Main Titles" and "Blade Runner Blues."
Esper Synth is sampled directly from patches painstakingly re-created on an actual CS 80 synth. The brass leads are the highlight of the library and are designed to be extremely playable out of the box.
In most cases, the volume of each patch is mapped directly to the modwheel for easy dynamic control. The Noir Sci-fi styled GUI contains controls for Low, Mid, and Hi EQ as well as attack / release sliders, a reverb / space control knob, and a button to turn the patch from poly to monophonic.
There are 5 versions of "the" brassy lead sound, 4 pads, 2 bell instruments, and even a huge offworld percussion section (inspired by the Bladerunner main title cue) with reverb baked in. 12 patches in total.
Price: £10.99/ $16. Requires full version of Kontakt 22.214.171.1241.
