The Unfinished releases Omnisphere Horizon IV

The Unfinished has announced the release of Omnisphere Horizon IV, a collection of 128 sounds designed for cinematic and electronic music.

The Unfinished Omnisphere Horizon IV

At the heart of Horizon IV is a focus on a complimentary blend of the synthetic and the organic: a collection of patches targeting electro-acoustic film scoring and song production. These sounds are designed to create evocative atmospheres, following the musical language of modern soundtracks and indie electronic music production.

Whilst the series continues to focus on cinematic scoring sounds, Horizon IV leans a little more towards the continually evolving neo-classical, electro-acoustic forms of scoring. Think Johan Johansson, Olafur Arnalds and Max Richter. A good deal of the arps, rhythms, pads and hybrid instruments have an acoustic feel, with bowed, plucked and scraped tones; wooden, liquid and metallic timbres.

Omnisphere Horizon IV is available for purchase for £19.99 GBP.

The Unfinished releases Absynth Nostromo soundset + Summer Sale

The Unfinished has announced the release of Absynth Nostromo, a collection of 128 sounds for cinematic scoring and ambient electronica.

The Unfinished Absynth Nostromo

Nostromo is inspired by the cinematic sounds of Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Dave Porter, and the electronic noises of Boards of Canada, Biosphere and I Break Horses.

Full of wobbly, widescreen leads; broken, beefy basses; lush, lo-fi pads; savage, soulful soundscapes; and complex, compelling sequences.

Hewn out of Absynth’s deep and destructive synthesis and sampling engine, Nostromo has a delicate, analogue soul, wrapped in a robust, digital skin. This soundset is all about drift, dirt and dynamics.

Absynth Nostromo is available for purchase for £19.99 GBP. It is also included in the updated Absynth Bundle.

The Unfinished has also announced a limited time sale on most of its soundsets.

The Unfinished Summer Sale

Nearly everything is at roughly 33% off (I’ve rounded a few prices here and there, so that my OCD doesn’t kick in!). The only exceptions are last month’s releases: Zebra Elysium, Zebra Elysium Dark and the Zebra Bundle.

The sale ends September 4th, 2014. Use coupon FABTABULOUS at checkout to take advantage of this offer.

Review: Diva Ex Machina soundset by The Unfinished

Matt Bowdler is one of my favorite sound designers. As The Unfinished, Matt has established himself in the genre of film scoring with many top quality sounds for synths like Zebra, Omnisphere, Massive, Virus TI, and more.

I’m always excited to see a new title, and especially when it’s for one of my favorite plug-ins, like u-he’s Diva virtual analog synthesizer.

The Unfinished Diva Ex Machina

The Ex Machina soundset features a full bank of 128 sounds for Diva. The focus is on analogue type electronic sounds, suitable for film scoring and electronica.

Ex Machina is something of a special synth soundset as it includes all the patches I designed for the composer Nathan Furst to use in his score for Need For Speed. I have to thank Nathan and DreamWorks for very kindly giving me permission to share the sounds I designed for Nathan. Also in this soundset are a number of other sounds inspired by the work I was doing for Nathan.

The collection features a plethora of warm, punchy basses; ethereal, drifting pads; gentle, old skool sequences; deep, dynamic basslines; classic, spacey leads; and sinister, evocative soundscapes. All programmed with a little musical, kinetic energy in the modwheel, as you would expect.

As with many of Matt’s other soundsets, there’s a lovely walkthrough video showcasing the sounds in Diva Ex Machina. Check it out below to get an idea of what’s included in this set.

So what do I think?

Product: Diva Ex Machina
Format: .h2p for u-he Diva
Price: £19.99 GBP
Like: Superb sound design, flexible sounds
Don’t like: —
Verdict: 9/10

Well, I can be fairly short here. Absolutely. Stunning. Sounds.

There is such a high level of quality in these sounds, and they are so full of character, I deeply enjoy playing each and every one of them.
That said, the leads and pads are definitely my favorites. Some of these mesmerizing sounds just keep me noodling. So inspirational.
Also, I should mention the soundscapes are amazing. Hold a note and sit back. I know we’ll be hearing some of these sounds on the screen.

Anyway, I said I was going to be short, so just get this pack, it’s simply brilliant.

There are some more audio demos on The Unfinished website and you can download a free demo pack with 15 presets for this set so you can check it out for yourself.

The Unfinished releases Elysium & Elysium Dark for Zebra

Related: , , Posted in news on Jul 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

The Unfinished has announced the release of its Elysium and Elysium Dark soundsets for the Zebra and Zebra HZ synthesizer instruments by u-he.

The Unfinished Zebra Elysium & Zebra Elysium Dark Edition

Zebra Elysium represents the soft, dark underbelly of cinematic underscore and ambient electronica. 128 patches full of of blissful leads, kinetic basslines, hypnotic sequences, brooding basses and sumptuous pads.

Inspired by modern film scores that ripple with delicate, infectious analogue synths, Elysium packs a subtle punch. Think of the soundtracks of Cliff Martinez, James Newton Howard, Tom Tykwer and Henry Jackman, add in a little Vangelis and Tangerine Dream, and a sprinkle of BT and M83… that is Elysium.

The emphasis is on lush, lo-fi atmospheres; vintage, widescreen storytelling with a contemporary nuance. Equally at home evoking a dense, fog-set forest; rain-soaked Giger-esque futuristic metropolis; or glittering, steampunk citadel.

Zebra Elysium comes in two versions, the original Zebra2 soundset and a special expanded Dark Edition for Zebra HZ/Dark Zebra. The Dark Edition includes the original Zebra2 patches, but all has a bonus 128 sounds. These bonus sounds take the 128 original Elysium patches and push them in a darker, grittier, more analogue direction.

Zebra Elysium is available for purchase for £19.99 GBP, Zebra Elysium Dark Edition is £29.99 GBP.
