Homegrown Sounds launches Astralis VST Collection Group Buy
Homegrown Sounds has announced the Astralis VST Collection Group Buy.
This group Buy is for the Astralis selection of synths which includes, Bion, Orgone, Bionic, Astralis A and Astralis B. Additionally there is Astralis FX which is a send effect, and the forthcoming Scala file creator. The synths are designed for making ambient soundscapes and have full intelligent randomization for creating new sounds on the fly, either via the global randomize or the many scattered around the synth sections.
You can get a taste of what the Astralis range can do via Orgone Lite, which is a cut down version of Orgone and Baby Bion which is a cut down version of Bion. The full synths all have Scala support and come with a collection of over 300 tuning files as default.
The group buy will run until 4th October, by signing up for it you agree to pay the remaining amount at the end. It requires a £20 signup fee, but for that you get Orgone in advance which you can use immediately, and there may be some other freebies thrown in as we go along. At the end the remaining amount is payable to make up the full amount.
Bion isn’t officially released yet, I will be doing that next week, it uses the same oscillator as Baby Bion.
