The Unfinished has announced the release of the new Omnisphere GaiKaiju sound library, a collection of 500 patches for the Omnisphere virtual instrument by Spectrasonics.
This library is inspired by the modern scoring style of Hans Zimmer; in particular, his collaborations with Benjamin Wallfisch on Blade Runner 2049 and Dunkirk.
GaiKaiju is a celebration of bombastic and powerful sounds, taut structures and textures, and emotional and dynamic expression: a hybrid blend of immense, analogue synths and subtle, organic samples.
Battering drum loops, kinetic basslines, sumptuous pads, soaring synths, eerie soundscapes, nail-biting sfx, pounding impacts and colourful sequences, come together to create a cavalcade of noises that throb with tension, drama and energy, on a colossal, widescreen scale.
This soundset takes the dark, relentless, heroic pulse of Dunkirk and the unbearable, damaged beauty of Blade Runner 2049, and melds them together, using techniques that include pitch-shifting and bending, analogue drift, odd time signatures and larger than life effects, to produce a collection of iconic, cinematic sounds that will take your breath away.
Omnisphere GaiKaiju for Omnisphere 2.6 is available for £69.99 GBP. The Deluxe version is £79.99 GBP and features an extra 50 patches created using the Bob Moog Tribute library soundsources. Prices ex. VAT where applicable.
