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.
