Bronto Scorpio Additions for DIVA

Bronto Scorpio Music has launched Additions, a soundset for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.

Additions is a small collection of 16 presets for Diva and is meant to be an addition to the Dimensions soundbank.

The 16 presets, which range from strange atmospheres to smooth arpeggios, were made to compliment the Dimensions presets nicely, but can of course also be used on their own!

As usual, great attention has been paid to small details and most of the presets have many MIDI controls assigned, to make them as flexible as possible.

The soundset is available for purchase for 2.50 EUR.

Review: Bronto Scorpio Dimensions soundset for Diva

Bronto Scorpio Dimensions

Dennis of Bronto Scorpio Music has recently released Dimensions, a soundset for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer instrument by u-he.

The goal was to take the limited structure of Diva and get the most out of it using various little tricks.

The result is 64 new patches, which range from classic synth to more modern, futuristic and even somewhat experimental sounds.

Here’s a breakdown of the patches:

  • 9 Arps
  • 9 Bass
  • 8 Chords
  • 6 Drums
  • 7 FX
  • 10 Pads
  • 5 Plucks
  • 10 Synth

The patches make good use of modwheel, aftertouch, pitchbend, etc. so those who play the keyboard well will benefit from a good dynamic range.

I had a short run through the patches, so check the video below to get an idea of what you can expect from Dimensions.

So what do I think?

Product: Dimensions by Bronto Scorpio
Format: Patches for u-he DIVA
Price: 10 EUR
Like: Fantastic chords & pads, very dynamic, great value for money
Don’t like: —
Verdict: 9/10

Dennis managed to bundle quite a lovely set of patches into this bank. Within these 64 patches there is a good amount of variety, and every single sound is very well designed. It seems that synths like Diva tend to bring out the best in sound designers.

While all patches are really good, the chords and pads are my favorites. There are some absolute gems in there, good for instant inspiration.

At just 10 euros I think Dimensions is a no-brainer. You can hardly go wrong, but if you’re still not sure if this set is for you, make sure to check out the 10 free demo patches available from the Bronto Scorpio website.

Bronto Scorpio Dimensions

Bronto Scorpio Music has launched Dimensions, a collection of 64 patches for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.

This soundset makes use of all the new features of version 1.3 and pushes them to their limits. The goal was to take the limited structure of Diva and get the most out of it using various little tricks.

The result is 64 new patches, which range from classic synth to more modern, futuristic and even somewhat experimental sounds.

All of these new patches are very detailed and use all the features of Diva to “maximise” them as much as possible.

The soundset is available to purchase for 10 EUR. A free demo pack with 10 presets can be downloaded from the product page.

Bronto Scorpio updates Dronebox for Reaktor to v1.2

Related: , , , Posted in news on Nov 20, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Bronto Scorpio has released version 1.2 of the Dronebox ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor, offering a bug fix and adding a few new presets.

The main inspiration for this ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths you often find on the internet. When watching those videos I’m often thinking “Don’t ever turn a knob again! That’s the best sound ever!” *Guy in the video turns a knob* “Wait! That’s even better! Now definitely never turn a knob again!”. I tried to capture this feeling with this ensemble.

The ensemble is a free download for Reaktor 5.8 or higher.

Bronto Scorpio Dronebox

Bronto Scorpio Music has released Dronebox, a free ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

The main inspiration for this ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths you often find on the internet.

When watching those videos I’m often thinking “Don’t ever turn a knob again! That’s the best sound ever!” *Guy in the video turns a knob* “Wait! That’s even better! Now definitely never turn a knob again!”. I tried to capture this feeling with this ensemble.

It comes with a bunch of presets, but it’s really meant to be tweeked and explored. The whole thing can be a bit unpredictable, as there is a lot of feedback going on, but that’s part of the fun! Many of the controls are somewhat cryptic, but you’ll eventually get a feeling for each of them.

Dronebox is a free download. Requires full version of Reaktor 5.8 or higher.
