The Unfinished has announced Absynth Metaspace, a soundset featuring a collection of 128 sounds designed for the extraordinarily deep Absynth by Native Instruments.
The soundset is aimed at modern film scoring, ambient and electronica, but is also versatile enough to be used in many other genres such as chillout and dubstep.
Deep atmospheric pads, swirling emotional soundscapes, subtle bubbling sequences and glitchy basslines; each sound has huge depth and subtlety to it and can really add an extra dimension to your tracks.
Whether you’re trying to create a huge synth soundscape or add some modern flair to your cinematic cues, this soundset has a wide range of track enhancing sound tools that you’ll come back to again and again.
The soundset is available to purchase for £14.99 GBP. A free demo pack is available from The Unfinished’s Free Stuff page. The pack contains both .nabs and .ksd format patches, so can be used with both Absynth 5 and Absynth 4.
