Time+Space has announced the launch of Warp Static, a sample pack from Zero-G, featuring Berlin IDM & Glitch sounds by Uwe Zahn aka Arovane.
Warp Static is crammed with the trademark sound of Berlin’s Electro-wizard Arovane – from angular electronic palettes and timbres, to complex, crunching and swarming soundscapes and glitchy and distorted sounds.
Shaped using Arovane’s personal collection of hardware outboard gear, this unique mesh of sound, which is as abstract and experimental as it is cerebral and astute, is ideal for IDM/electronic productions as well as for film score and game soundtracks.
Featuring pads, explorations, musical phrases, glitch beats and much more plus melodic and percussive rhythms that clash, mutate and evolve, this multiformat collection is a unique mesh of sound which is as abstract and experimental as it is cerebral and astute.
Formats include: Acid Wav, Apple Loops and Rex2 plus EXS24, HALion, Kontakt and Reason NNXT instruments.
The sample library is available to download from Time+Space for £54.95 GBP / 74.95 EUR.
