Review: Precisionsound Exosphere soundscapes sample library

Precisionsound Exosphere

Precisionsound has recently released Exosphere, a collection of soundscapes.

Featuring corrosive textures, unstable machines, electronic ambiences, and twisted voices, Exosphere is a creative toolkit for film, game, and multimedia sound design, as well as for producers of electronic music.

Exosphere features

  • 50 stereo 48khz 24-bit WAV files.
  • Over 55 minutes of audio.
  • 1 program for all versions of Steinberg HALion.
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 1 and 2.
  • 1 program with scripted GUI for NI Kontakt 3 and above.

While 50 samples might not seem like a lot, they’re over 1 minute each so you still get a total of 55 minutes of audio.

The sounds were designed to inspire music composers and sound designers by delivering lengthy loops with a wide dynamic range. To help identify sounds, the files have descriptive names like “Malfunctioning robot” and “Contamination zone”.

Static glitches, radiation crackles, chilling space winds, robotic bleeps, warbled voices, dark pad-like background ambiences… Exosphere!

The included patches map all sounds across the keyboard for easy auditioning. The Kontakt 3 patch also has some controls for Hi- and Lo-pass filters and stereo width.

Listen to Precisionsound’s demos below to get an idea of what Exosphere sounds like.

So what do I think?

Product: Exosphere by Precisioundsound
Format: 24-bit/48kHz Wav + sampler patches
Price: $29 USD
Like: Quality sounds, long loops
Don’t like: –
Verdict: 9/10

Exosphere is exactly what is says on the tin, a bunch of glitchy, threatening, and abstract soundscape loops. The atmosphere is seriously creepy, with a constant feeling that something is about to go horribly wrong.

The sounds are well designed with lots of movement and variations, without getting too complicated or being overly processed. The vibe and quality is consistent across the library. Organic, mechanical, unsettling, yet intriguing.

Well recommended!
