Luftrum has announced the release of an updated version of its premier pads instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player.

Lunaris 2 is improved and expanded with sample drag and drop import, a freshly redesigned and larger interface, and a core sounds library that comes brimming with over twice as many sound sources.

The update also includes new effects, new features, and 480 presets created by 14 world-class sound designers, including Venus Theory, Electric Himalaya, Echo Season, Bigtone, Stephan Baer, Michael Oakley, Yuli Yolo, Gahrn Audio, Lauge, Amphilium, Adam Pietruszko, S1gns of L1fe, State Azure and of course, Luftrum.

For years Lunaris has continually reaffirmed itself as the industry standard for synth pads, for that is what Lunaris 2 is all about – pads and pads only. From analog pads to digital pads, string pads, cinematic pads, 80s-inspired pads, immersive ambient pads to everything in between.

Explore deep space pads that take you to the outer reaches of the cosmos, rewind back to the 80s for some technicolor fare, and lose yourself among crystalline wavetable textures that sparkle like starlight. Lunaris 2 makes it easy to mix and match sound sources for instantly gratifying results. Sculpt and morph between the synth pads using the XY pad.

Whether you are a composer, electronic musician, or sound designer, Lunaris 2 packs enough to satisfy the most demanding of users, while providing a simple and intuitive interface for those who prefer to just pick a preset and play.

Lunaris 2 is available to purchase for $159 USD. Use promo code REKKERD at the checkout to get a 10% discount on any purchase at the Luftrum store.

Users of the original Lunaris can upgrade for $39 USD. Lunaris 2 installs side-by-side with Lunaris as a separate product.
