Today we’re taking a look at Evenant’s online course Cinematic Synthesis – Digital Sound Creation. This course, hosted by producer and Ableton-certified trainer Big Jerr, is focusing on the creation of cinematic synth sounds heard in soundtracks of recent blockbusters and TV series like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 or Stranger Things.
With Project Chaos, British sample library developer HybridTwo launches their third and latest installment in their range of cutting-edge cinematic sound design products that offers a wide spectrum of percussion loops, cinematic effects, textures, drones and synth sequences. Project Chaos changes the game’s rules by offering an entirely user-expandable product which allows you to import and process your very own samples.
Heavyocity just released another product in their range of modern orchestral virtual instruments: FORZO Modern Brass. Following the successful concept of their Modern Strings range NOVO, FORZO is in essence three libraries in one: a powerful 26-piece orchestral brass section sampled with over 100 articulations, a hybrid engine that masterfully merges traditional brass and sound design and a loop designer that puts over 400 tempo-synced brass loops at your fingertips.
In this review, we’ll have a look at the library’s features and find out together, if FORZO can hold up to its award-winning sibling NOVO.
Gothic Instruments just added a fifth volume to their renowned DRONAR series of cinematic sound design tools called DRONAR: Cinematic Atmospheres. We had the chance to review this comprehensive toolbox of moody and suspenseful cinematic drones, perfectly suited for the SciFi and Horror genre.
Today we’re reviewing 8DIO’s CAGE bundle, a collection of sample library specialized in aleatoric orchestral effects. The bundle combines three different volumes of orchestral sections including strings, brass and woodwinds and is – in words of the developers – the largest collection of orchestral effects ever made.
We’re taking a look under the hood of this 66GB mammoth of a library and find out, if its sounds can convince in an orchestral setup.
