Lunaris is a sample based pad instrument, containing pads only from classic analog pads to lush ambient pads, cinematic pads and any pads in between including 30 original Luftrum pads from the Prophet-6. Lunaris also contains sequenced pads from underscoring elements to more contemporary rhythmic patterns plus a selection of dark, avantgarde and obscure pads. Lunaris is 4.5GB and ships with 400 presets created by sound designers as Arksun, Bigtone, Himalaya, Luftrum, Martin Walker, Adam Pietruszko, Twolegs Toneworks and Brandon Clark.
At the heart of Lunaris are 2700 meticulously hand trimmed samples, collected in over 200 sound sources of multisampled pads, field recordings, synth transients and soundscapes available to mix, sculpt and shape into the perfect pad structure.
Not only is Lunaris a dream pad machine, it is also a full bodied creative tool that can excel at anything from soundscapes to synth leads, as well as drones and organic textures, complementing both the producer, composer and the sound designer.

NEW January 2018
Lunaris is updated to v1.2 with 150 brand new presets by Michael Lyon bringing the total preset count up to over 400 pads. The new presets range from deep lush pads to organic nature pads to light, glittering, 90s inspired fantasy pads with memories to the D-50 era and early digital hardware synths.
The update also brings a new and optional GUI (user interface or skin if you prefer) in an elegant and classic dark synth theme that is easy on the eyes. The new GUI is designed by Satya Choudhury and can quickly be activated and switched back again by clicking the logo.
