Luftrum has announced the release of a tribute soundset of synth emulations and Vangelis-inspired sounds, carefully created by Luftrum by closely studying some of the classics Vangelis composed throughout his life.

Vangelis for Omnisphere 2 contains 115 presets (90 patches and 25 multis).

The soundset is inspired by the music of Vangelis. From the early era of L’Apocalypse des Animaux and Opera Sauvage, to later compositions such as his film score to the Oscar-winning Chariots of Fire and Koreyoshi Kurahara’s film Antarctica, to solo albums like The City and Direct, Voices and Oceanic, and of course, his immortal and epic soundtrack to the 1982 Ridley Scott sci-fi classic film Blade Runner.

Vangelis has influenced the Luftrum output like no one else, and in every Luftrum release, there’s always a bit of Vangelis. His ability to compose melodies – as if they were a direct extension of his emotions – is something Luftrum always aims to channel into the creation of his own sounds. This is a humble and personal tribute to honor the legacy of a giant.

Some of the emulations include the CS-80 synth lead from the Blade Runner Main Titles, the Koto-sounding synth key from Theme from Antarctica, the mesmerizing arpeggio from Fields of Coral, the synth brass as heard in Five Circles; a recreation of the fragile and delicate synth key from Le Petite Fille de la Mer, and the classic harmonica/synth lead from Blade Runner Blues, plus many more emulations and Vangelis-inspired sounds.

Available for Omnisphere 2.8 or higher, the soundset is priced $39 USD. Discounts of up to 30% off are available with a purchase of multiple products.
