The Unfinished has launched Massive Darkscore V, a collection of 128 sounds for NI Massive, and the fifth and final soundset in the Darkscore series.
Dangerous and delicate, Darkscore V has a depth and dynamism usually associated with analogue, and analogue modelling, synthesis.
Biting basslines, shadowy pads, crunchy leads, grinding soundscapes and punchy basses fill this soundset. Designed for sombre and action-packed cinematics, and fluid and lo-fi electronica, Darkscore V delivers earth-shattering lows and stratospheric highs.
This collection of gritty electronic cinematic sounds can at turns be used delicately and aggressively. Distorted bass sequences can be pulled back to subtle, pulsing textures; glimmering padscapes can be pushed into rupturing, muscular drones. Emotion and atmosphere meets anarchy and violence.
As usual, deep programming has gone into the Macro controls, creating numerous ways to manipulate the patches on the fly – a huge amount of expression is possible, meaning that hundreds more sounds are at your fingertips, with some judicious tweaking.
Whether used as supporting sounds for dynamic orchestration or pushed up front to deliver synthy aggression, Darkscore V provides plenty of substance for thrilling and evocative music.
Massive Darkscore V is available for purchase £19.99 ex VAT.

Prime Loops has introduced Floxytek: Strike, a template pack for Ableton Live.
We are pleased to present you with this ‘Hardtek Melbourne Style’ template, composed by Floxytek in Ableton Live.
This project, including lasers and growl bass, will help you compose fat sidechained kick basslines with the Massive synth and show you how the adjustment of compressors, limiters and EQ will help the quality of your sound. This Template, based on midi composition, may serve you as a basis to produce tracks or live sequences.
All the parameters of synthesizers, effects, and notes, are changable, so you can use it as a tool, whilst keeping your own style. The template is written like this: intro, build, then the general theme (1 minute in all). Beginner or expert, it will work for you!
The pack is available for purchase from Prime Loops for £14.95 GBP. Requires Ableton 8.4 or higher, and Massive 1.3 or higher.
