Wide Blue Sound has announced availability of Elysium, a Kontakt instrument library featuring a two-layer synth for creating music infused with tonal rhythms, movement, and unrivalled playability.

Combining tonal rhythms with beautiful sounds, Elysium offers an entirely new way of creating striking percussive pulses, beautiful organic arpeggios, evolving pads, and one-of-a-kind hybrid instruments.

Some of the biggest synths end up being preset synths, with features built for the patch designers instead of the users. Elysium is different.

Enter a galaxy of macro knobs, generators and fun ways to create movement, where even your most basic patches sound more alive than they would in any other synth. Elysium’s groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed UI was designed to give you the most power and flexibility possible with the least amount of resistance.
