blortblort has announced the release of elokuva, a soundset featuring 170 presets for the Synplant synthesizer instrument by Sonic Charge.
elokuva is homage to the sounds that frame the images in the films we love.
I grew up with aspirations of being a soundtrack artist…and at that time there were a handful of names…many of whom still are working (Hans Zimmer, Maurice Jarre, Mark Isham, Graeme Revell, John Carpenter to name a few)
Whilst those aspirations are still there, life has provided other paths ;]
So, for those of you who may still be on that journey…OR if you just want to use some larger, dreamy, inspiring sounds in Synplant…I hope you find elokuva to be useful!
earlier this year, I read someone’s comment that the word “cinematic” has been used WAY too much to describe soundsets and sample libraries in the past year. I would have to agree with that. However… I had just used a “variation” on the word to title this…the last set of the series…so to break from that overuse and to be a tiny bit clever: what better way to use the Finnish word for “cinema” to title my “finishing” set of the series!: ‘elokuva’ ;]
in any case- there ARE more sounds in this set …and I believe these lend themselves to more varied use than those in the previously released sets, but all of that is subjective really…
elokuva is the third and final installment in blortblort’s Sunlight GMO series for Synplant.
The soundset costs $20 USD. An introductory 30% discount is available through April 1st, 2017. Use coupon THETHING at checkout.
