Arte Nuovo Massive Heaven

Arte Nuovo has announced Massive Heaven, a soundset by Joseph Hollo for the Massive synthesizer instrument by Native Instruments.

Massive Heaven is a collection of 68 expressive, evolving, warm, soft, light, dramatic, emotional synth pads. 33 carefully selected Keys, Leads, Plucked instruments, Sequences, Basses.

Most of them are highly transformable by the wonderfully useful Makros.
I like to think of my presets as a new, versatile, expressive, standalone instruments.

Thanks for the Massive GUI, the names of the Makros will tell a lot about how to use. I also use to drop some notes where needed.

The soundset is available for purchase for $28 USD. A demo bank (10 patches) can be downloaded free of charge.

Joseph Hollo releases free soundset for Hive

Hollo HiveFree

Joseph Hollo of Arte Nuovo has announced the release of Hollo HiveFree, a soundset for the Hive synthesizer by u-he.

I am surprised how this little, easy synth is capable of great, complex, alive, breathing sounds.

I made some clear, hard hitting Plucks, Bells, Glasses, (-even there is no FM yet.)
Soft, warm and bright, animated pads and some Sequences also.

I am very happy for the result, hope you’ll like it too.

Hollo HiveFree is available to download at no charge. The download includes 36 patches, and Cubase and MIDI files from the demo track.

Review: Arte Nuovo Padsheaven 2 soundset for Zebra

Arte Nuovo Padsheaven 2

Hot on the heels on the Joseph Hollo’s first soundset comes Padsheaven 2, a new collection of sounds for the Zebra 2.5 software synthesizer from u-he.

The continuation of the successful padsheaven, a brand new collection of lyrical, dramatic pads, effects and soundscapes and much more from a multiple golden and platinum record owner composer.

Like the first version, you can use them in almost all styles from classical pop/rock ballads to moviescores or even in the most up to date compositions.

The majority of Padsheaven 2 patches are pad sounds (99). A full range of pads is included, from deep & warm to icy thin. Additional sounds include a variety of keys, bass and lead, plucked instruments and drum sounds (19 patches in total), as well as 15 arp/rhythmic patches. A few variations and bonus presets make for a total of 133 patches.

Joseph has once again made good use of the various controller assignments to add lots of expressive and dynamic variety to the sounds. Aftertouch, breath and expression have been assigned to the XY pads on Zebra, so you can change multiple parameters with a single control.

So what do I think?

Product: Padsheaven 2 by Joseph Hollo
Format: 133 .h2p patches for Zebra 2.5
Price: $25 USD
Like: Beautiful sounds, well designed
Don’t like: —
Verdict: 9/10

Padsheaven 2 goes on in the same vein as its predecessor. High quality sounds, exceptionally emotional, expressive, and beautifully sculpted by talented sound designer Joseph Hollo.

I can never get enough of good pad sounds, and this set delivers another stunning collection.

Padsheaven 2 is another must buy for any Zebra user who needs pads. And then some. The bells, leads/synths, plucked sounds… all just hitting that sweet spot. These sounds will do wonderful in ambient and cinematic works, or anything else that needs gentle, moving, astonishingly beautiful sounds.

Joseph is offering a free 8-patch demo bank so make sure to check it out.
