Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale on Kymera by MNTRA Instruments, a virtual instrument based on the principles of Musique concrète developed by French composer Pierre Schaeffer in the 1940s and now taken into the future.
The instrument comes with 60 presets, including dynamic monster vocalizations, environmental sounds, foley, rhythmic sequences, drones, and pads made from surprising and unlikely sources.
Inside you will find a vast collection of idiosyncratic sounds recorded in extreme ultrasonic quality, allowing you to pitch and manipulate the original recordings beyond recognition without losing their clarity and definition. As laid out in the tape experiments conducted by Schaeffer and his contemporaries in the mid 20th century, Kymera allows you to burn all relations between the sampled material and its sonic origin, creating brand new sound objects out of the ashes.
Inspired by classic horror sound effects, this instrument is not for the faint of heart. Spanning the screeching tones of dry ice on metal, whining hurdy-gurdy drones, blood-curdling screams, the voice of MNTRA Instruments’ studio mascot Penny the french bulldog, and countless others; these sounds are a testament to their love for all things dark.
Available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU), Kymera is priced only £7.95 GBP / $10 USD until October 31st, 2021.
