"The Atmosphere Vault" has been a long evolving project. First, we deeply sampled a large collection of hardware and software synths. Sampling was done at 48 kHz and 24-bit.
We did this to avoid the "grainy" quality that lower resolution sample sets often suffer from. One of the reasons we used Tal-Sampler was because, not only is it capable of multi-samples, it also allows for multi-layers. This powerful feature offers the ability to create some unique HQ sound design.
We looked into many of the available samplers but Tal-Sampler offered a broad range of features while keeping things simple for the user (samples and presets are embedded).
We designed each preset of this 5 gigabyte collection to have multiple controllers so that the sounds can morph and change musically.
The end result is a deeply visual and mood provoking collection of 70 atmospheres, well suited for film and ambient production.
