The Unfinished releases Omnisphere Horizon V & Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe

The Unfinished Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe

The Unfinished has announced the release of Omnisphere Horizon V, a collection of 128 patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere. It also comes in a Deluxe Version with 195 patches.

Horizon V is squarely aimed at the television underscore and independent film scoring vibe. There is a strong blend of the acoustic and the synthetic: both growling and delicate string instruments meet dark and lush analogue sounds. Melding organic bowed textures, airy guitars and pseudo-folk vibes with bristling, warm synth classics and evolving techno pulses; this soundset captures the intimate, innovative spirit of scoring for the small screen, as well as films and games that steer away from the Hollywood aesthetic.

This collection delivers haunting pianos, melancholic soundscapes, colourful guitars, eclectic strings, and supports them with impulsive basses, kinetic percussion, rich pads and robust synths.

With the launch of Omnisphere 2 not so very far away, this will be the last release in the Horizon series – but it is ending on a high. As well as the normal version of Horizon V, there will also be a Deluxe version featuring an expanded total of 195 patches, rather than the normal 128.

Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe takes several of the patches from the extensive Arps + Rhythms section and re-works them in different time signatures (5/4 and 3/4) to give them extra life. It also turns some of the sounds from the Arps + Rhythms section into individual, playable instruments. This adds a number of new basses, percussive noises and plucked instruments to the collection.

Omnisphere Horizon V and Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe are available for purchase for £19.99 GBP and £24.99 GBP, respectively (prices ex. VAT).

Until March 6th, 2015, a purchase of Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe includes a bonus soundset: Omnisphere Capricorn.

This bonus collection of patches come from a small The Unfinished side project and features 70 extra patches, primarily designed using Omnisphere’s extraordinary collection of analogue synth sound sources. It makes an excellent accompaniment to Omnisphere Horizon V: Deluxe.

The Unfinished releases Massive Darkscore V

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.

The Unfinished Massive Darkscore V

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.

The Unfinished Zebra Kronos

The Unfinished has launched Zebra Kronos, a collection of 180 sounds for the Zebra2 synthesizer by u-he, aimed at cinematic scoring and atmospheric electronica.

Pulsing, shimmering, driving, moving… At the heart of most modern film, television and game scores are kinetic, spacious and rich synth sounds. Kronos provides a captivating and energetic glimpse into this world of organic, analogue noises.

Zebra Kronos is all about drama. Taking inspiration from cinematic-synth crossover artists such as M83, Cliff Martinez and Olafur Arnalds, as well as the spacious and action-packed sound of game scores such as Mass Effect, Deus Ex: Human Evolution and Mirror’s Edge.

Deep basses and basslines burn; widescreen pads and padscapes glisten; dynamic sequences and arps flow; turbulent textures and effects evolve.

As ever for a Zebra soundset, each patch features creative programming on the modwheel and the x/y performance pads.

Zebra Kronos is available for purchase for £24.99 GBP.

A Dark Edition of Zebra Kronos is also available, which contains the original version of Kronos, plus an expanded collection of a further 180 sounds, optimising the original patches for u-he’s Zebra HZ/Dark Zebra.

The Dark Edition costs £34.99 GBP.

The Unfinished launches Christmas Sale + Free Tyrell N6 Kuu Zuu soundset

The Unfinished has announced the launch of its 2014 Christmas Sale, offering 33% off its soundsets for a limited time only.

The Unfinished Christmas Sale

Originally, I had planned to just run a sale in the last week of December. But, because the EU and HMRC have brought in frankly ridiculous new VAT rules that are putting some mall online companies out of business, I have decided to run the sale for an extra two weeks.

The sale now runs from 12th to 31st December.

This is so that you can have more time to grab the soundets you’ve always wanted before 2015, when this VAT business will force me to put my prices up a little bit.

The discount code for the sale is BOXOFDELIGHTS. I hope it brings you joy and light.

So, there’s 33% off on all products, except for those released in December: Drumstruck 2, Drumstruck Bundle, Zebra Kronos and Zebra Kronos: Dark Edition.

The sale ends December 31st, 2014.

The Unfinished Tyrell N6 Kuu Zuu

The Unfinished has also released Tyrell N6 Kuu Zuu, the third and final part of a trilogy of free soundsets for the Tyrell N6 synthesizer plug-in by u-he.

The collection focuses on a modern interpretation of classic analogue sounds. Tyrell N6 is modelled on the circuitry and behaviour of Roland’s famous Juno range of hardware synthesizers, and this soundset takes those principles and gives them a contemporary edge.

Inspired by a variety of artists, including Solar Fields, Daft Punk, Rival Consoles, Aphex Twin, I Break Horses, Boards of Canada, M83, Nigel Godrich and Cliff Martinez, Kuu Zuu is aimed at electronica, ambient, film scoring, chillwave, lo-fi and house.

Kuu Zuu has 64 synth patches, as well as 36 bonus percussion patches and is absolutely free.

The Unfinished releases Drumstruck 2 for Kontakt

The Unfinished has launched Drumstruck 2, a loops library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Unfinished Drumstruck 2

Where the first version focused on smaller, quieter, underscore style drum loops, the new collection is more about louder, noisier, more distorted beats.

Again, it is designed in Kontakt so that you can trigger loops on the fly, mixing and matching combinations. Whether you use Drumstruck 2 in isolation or to beef up existing percussion, it’ll add some saturated and punchy rhythms.

The Unfinished say that if you enjoy the big cinematic beats of the likes of Harry Gregson-Williams, Linkin Park, Craig Armstrong or David Holmes, you’ll find something to use in Drumstruck 2.

There are 50 loops, spread across a single Kontakt instrument. No effects, no frills. Just carefully programmed and produced beats, useful for a wide variety of genres, including cinematic, electronic, rock and pop.

The library is available for purchase for £9.99 GBP. Both Drumstruck libraries are also available in the Drumstruck Bundle, priced at £15.99 GBP.
