Jack Dark releases The Nightmare Machine

DarkWare The Nightmare Machine

Novuzeit recently released Neon Black, which contained a puzzle. Upon solving this puzzle (which Mark Piotrowski did) the Nightmare Machine would be unleashed.

This plug-in was supposedly the last DarkWare plug-in ever made, but it was never released so people wondered if it was actually real. You can read more about this story here.

The Nightmare Machine is still beta (and will stay that way) and contains at least one bug. From the included readme: If the audio goes completely to the right channel, play with the reverb knob to get things back to normal.

Also note that this thing can get nasty loud, so mind your ears and equipment.

Visit the DarkWare site for more information and a link to download the Nightmare Machine.

The Unfinished releases Elysium & Elysium Dark for Zebra

Related: , , Posted in news on Jul 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

The Unfinished has announced the release of its Elysium and Elysium Dark soundsets for the Zebra and Zebra HZ synthesizer instruments by u-he.

The Unfinished Zebra Elysium & Zebra Elysium Dark Edition

Zebra Elysium represents the soft, dark underbelly of cinematic underscore and ambient electronica. 128 patches full of of blissful leads, kinetic basslines, hypnotic sequences, brooding basses and sumptuous pads.

Inspired by modern film scores that ripple with delicate, infectious analogue synths, Elysium packs a subtle punch. Think of the soundtracks of Cliff Martinez, James Newton Howard, Tom Tykwer and Henry Jackman, add in a little Vangelis and Tangerine Dream, and a sprinkle of BT and M83… that is Elysium.

The emphasis is on lush, lo-fi atmospheres; vintage, widescreen storytelling with a contemporary nuance. Equally at home evoking a dense, fog-set forest; rain-soaked Giger-esque futuristic metropolis; or glittering, steampunk citadel.

Zebra Elysium comes in two versions, the original Zebra2 soundset and a special expanded Dark Edition for Zebra HZ/Dark Zebra. The Dark Edition includes the original Zebra2 patches, but all has a bonus 128 sounds. These bonus sounds take the 128 original Elysium patches and push them in a darker, grittier, more analogue direction.

Zebra Elysium is available for purchase for £19.99 GBP, Zebra Elysium Dark Edition is £29.99 GBP.
