Xenos Soundworks has announced the release of Extraterrestrial Origins, a soundset for the Massive synthesizer by Native Instruments.
‘Extraterrestrial Origins’ contains 64 ethereal and sublime presets. The generous serving of epic pads and soundscapes will transport your tracks into the deepest realms of unexplored space, while the other patches are designed to compliment those.
This set was a labor of love, heavily inspired by my personal fascination with astronomy, quantum physics and science fiction.
As a special bonus, check out the “Comments” box under the “Attributes” tab. Piece together fragments of a sci-fi short story as you flip through the sounds for a total immersion experience.
The soundset is available for purchase for $6.95 USD.
