Triple Spiral Audio has announced the release of Nordic 2, a new soundset for the Omnisphere 2 virtual instrument by Spectrasonics.
Nordic 2 is a new soundset for Omnisphere 2 with a dark ambient character, perfect for use in underscoring and use in film, game and library music productions and contains 100 presets and 15 multis and is created completely with custom soundsources
In the presets there is an extensive use of the modwheel, aftertouch, pitchweel and sometimes CC2 to enhance the sounds.
The soundset comes with 164 soundsources and is 700MB in size. Requires Omnisphere 2.6
The sound library is on sale for 20 EUR until January 6th, 2019 (regular 24.95 EUR).
Also available is Desolate, a new soundset for the Iris 2 synthesizer from Izotope.
It has a dark ambient character and is crafted to be used in film, game and music library productions.
The soundset has 64 patches, crafted from original content . All the patches have the 8 macro controls assigned. The soundset is 945mb in size.
The sound pack is 10 EUR until January 6th. The regular price is 14.95 EUR.
Furthermore, the Radio Tape library by Beautiful Void Audio has been updated. It now comes with more than doubles the sample content and nearly three times the instrument count.
While the new instruments are inspiring and unique (like the ones in the initial release), the 61 new patches are not quite as experimental (for the most part). Therefore, you may get broader use out of this new set.
Most of the instruments are still based on the warped sounds of tape and sound fx from the devices themselves (whether it be static, squeal, or hum). However, some of the new sounds are the morphed sounds of voices and violins which were first recorded onto a tape cassette or vhs.
Radio Tape is also 10 EUR during the promotion.
Between December 17th and January 6th, Triple Spiral Audio is donating all earnings from its two new releases to the Save the Earth foundation. 30% of the earnings from Radio Tape will also go to the foundation.
