Sonokinetic has released its new Kontakt Player-powered instrument library featuring a fully analog, synthesized version of the Sotto orchestral phrase library.

A collaboration with Samplify, Sotto X takes the original orchestral scores for Sotto and transforms them into lush arpeggios and melodic pads.

With so many enthusiastic Sonokinetic library users, it was inevitable that at some point one of their dedicated supporters would envision an inspiring idea for their next venture. So it is with Sotto X, an analog synth remix of their original Sotto library suggested by David Carbone. They jumped on his exciting concept to re-tool their orchestral classics with lush synth phrases and ran with the idea, which has grown into a full library in its own right!

Just like Davide, Sonokinetic shares a love for the sound of old synths, and vintage hardware has long been a fascination for the team here at Sonokinetic. As fledgling music producers, long before Sonokinetic could afford high-end orchestral recording, they would craft intricate facsimiles of orchestral sections using nothing more than MIDI programming and synthesizers.

With Sotto X Sonokinetic brings this journey full circle, adding an extra dimension to their favorite orchestral phrase libraries. Soto X is a fully analog, synthesized version of Sonokinetic’s popular Sotto collection. Very playable in its own right, and also designed to complement the existing Sotto orchestral phrases. The sounds within have been expertly created and recorded using an analog signal path, for both the synth tones and post-production effects.

Sotto X is on sale at Plugin Boutique for the introductory price of $67 USD until December 26th, 2022 (regular $99 USD).
