unEarthed Sampling has announced the release of Forgotten Songs, a virtual instrument for Kontakt featuring cinematically mangled vinyl recordings.
Atonal Chaos. Ligeti and The Monolith from 2001 go hand in hand… if you’re next score is in need of a similar tone and some creepy atonal pads and drones, Forgotten Songs is for you! If you’re familiar with classical pieces from Gygory Ligeti such as Lux Aeterna… then you already know what to expect with FS. This sort of ever evolving creeptastic choir vibe is the sound we were after for the library… albeit a bit more synthetic in tone.
Through stretching, tweaking, maming, destroying, and processing various clips from old public domain vinyl recordings from the 1930s, we have achieved it. The end result is extremely creepy as some of these pads have a 10 or 20 second buildup stemming from insanely stretched choir or orchestra sounds.
Forgotten Songs features
- Awesome PADS and AMBIENT material stemming from public domain vinyl recordings from the 30s.
- Atonal Choir patches, Drones, Pads, and Staccs.
- Perfect for Sci Fi, Horror, Chillout, and Ambient music.
- Looped and unlooped patches.
- 25 Kontakt Instruments.
- Highly (and easily) tweakable GUI (incl. attack, eq, and convolution reverb controls).
The library costs £11.99 GBP / $20 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2+.
