The Unfinished has launched Omnisphere Horizon III, a new Horizon series soundset for Spectrasonics Omnisphere, featuring 128 patches aimed at dark and light cinematic underscore.
Like Horizon I and II, the aim of this library is to provide you with a compelling collection of sounds to guide and support your scores, whatever the tone or genre. In carefully looking at what was missing from the previous two installments, I have focused a little more on deeper and aggressive tones, as well as playful and exotic sounds.
This time round, however, there are some additional sounds. Firstly, there are some pads and textures taking advantage of the great choir/vocal sound sources within Omnisphere. Also, there are some strange and wonderful hybrid acoustic instruments, such as guitars, dulcimers, strings and pianos. Finally, there’s an overall step towards the lighter side of Omnisphere, with some arps and instruments that wouldn’t be out of place in a children’s fantasy movie or a romantic indie flick.
Each sound has instant flexibility and dynamism dialled into the modwheel, as you would expect.
The soundset is available to purchase for £19.99 GBP. It is also part of the new Omnisphere Bundle, priced at £47.99 GBP.
