Dronar Hybrid Module – Revolutionary Atmospheric Sounds Generator for Kontakt!

DRONAR Hybrid Module makes it astonishingly easy to create rich, dramatic, complex and evolving atmospheres with a set of controls designed to invite deep exploration, expression and discovery.

FULL DETAILS

DRONAR is a deep, expressive and innovative atmospheric sound creator. This first module in the series – The Hybrid Module – creates deep, grainy cutting-edge, evolving cinematic and sci-fi atmospheres with 300 inspiring presets.

PRESET HIERARCHY – BRIEF OVERVIEW

DRONAR starts from hundreds of evolving, 20-second sample loops. 8 of these are loaded into each ‘Drone’ (an .nka preset file in the /Data folder, one loaded onto each ‘Drone Key’), and then there are 12 Drones in each .nki patch (in the /Instruments folder).

A UNIVERSE FROM A SINGLE NOTE

Uniquely, DRONAR creates complex atmospheres from a very small number of notes played (1 to 4 recommended). It spreads out the chord in the mid-range, adds a root bass note, a high note and then adds evolving sound effects. 8 simultaneous different sounds are then animated with LFOs and arpeggiators to bring them to life. The result is rich and dramatic.

A HAND FREE FOR EXPRESSION

All this complexity from a few fingers on one hand frees up your other hand to expressively control the dials with mouse drags or external MIDI controller knobs, and record the changes as a performance in your DAW. Subtle dial movements give instant and deep expression, ideal for soundtracks as well as highly expressive cinematic pads in any genre.

A COMPLETE ATMOSPHERE

Because DRONAR instantly adds low, mid-range and high sounds plus sound effects, you barely need other sounds to quickly create a complete piece of atmospheric, expressive music.

BEGINNER AND EXPERT FRIENDLY

Needing to only play a few notes and move a few dials to get such rich expression is obviously inviting for beginners, but an expert will get much further by knowing what notes to play and how to express emotions using the dials.

THE 6 DIALS (MAIN INTERFACE)

INTENSITY: (also controlled by the Mod Wheel) takes you from silent to powerful by fading up through different velocity layers.

MOVEMENT: has a global effect on the intensity of the arpeggiators – set it high for strong effects and zero for a flat pad sound.

HI, MID and LO: control the automatically generated high notes, mid-range notes and bass notes. Moving these dials has a huge expressive effect on the music. It’s only like using a mixing desk and yet – having it so accessible in front of you encourages you to work with the balance as part of the original creative expression, instead of a mix decision later on.

FX: controls the level of 20-second futuristic, unpitched sound effects loops in the mix and add instant movement and complexity.

Then, beyond the shimmering immediacy of the ‘Main Page’ UI awaits a whole other world of expert control, turning DRONAR into a vast modular multi-timbral synth/sampler with multiple independent arpeggiators. It´s addictive!

Incredibly innovative and addictive, there is nothing quite like DRONAR for offering so much live expression control – it will change the way you create atmospheric sounds!

Sculptor Live Impacts Module – Monstrous and Thundering Impacts Creator for Kontakt!

“SCULPTOR Live Impacts Module” generates monstrous slamming impact sounds from audiophile recordings of fire, explosions, stone and metal processed by Hollywood trailer sound-design genius Alessandro Camnasio (Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, The Jungle Book, Mad Max, Transformers and many more).

This instrument is perfect for massive standalone impact sounds as well as larger-than-life hybrid percussion. It is also great for layering with drums for massive bolt-on power as well as game and film sound effects for monumental events like impacts, collisions, metal strikes, raining missiles, deep booms, earthquakes, thunder and explosions.

PRESET HIERARCHY – BRIEF OVERVIEW

Every Impact is made up of 2 elements (3 if you have the PRE-WHOOSH enabled) – IMPACT and DECAY. These elements are the attack and the long release. The Live Impacts Module quickly crossfades between the 2 different sounds (each with 3 velocity layers) in order to produce sonic complexity and a wide range of variations.

MAIN INTERFACE

The three windows in Sculptor´s main interface are sound menus.

PRE-WHOOSH: if enabled, this is a reverse sound that can give your Impact an impressive thwack. Imagine the sense of a high speed incoming projectile!

GAP: adjust the time between the PRE-WHOOSH and the main IMPACT with the GAP dial. A longer gap increases the dramatic tension, akin to hearing the air rush of an alien missile immediately prior to Earth Impact. The GAP goes up in 16th note increments, fixed to your host tempo. This way you can draw a note into your DAW Key Editor knowing that the main impact will always land on the beat.

IMPACT: the initial attack transient.

DECAY: the long fading component.

RANDOM: this magic button loads a random set of sounds into the slots on the last-played key, offering you an endless set of new impact sounds.

The knobs under each window control the volume of that part of the sound. Different relative levels can have a pronounced effect on the sound, from a hard-edged sound (loud IMPACT, quiet DECAY) to a big long cavernous boom (quiet IMPACT, loud DECAY).

SOUND SHAPING DIALS: These dials give you a great degree of control over the sound on your last-played MIDI key-pair. Includes Velocity, Pan, Filter Cutoff, Filter Q (Resonance), Velocity to Filter Map, Tune (Pitch), Decay and Release.

MASTER FX PAGE

This page presents global effects which will affect every sound currently loaded across the whole keyboard. Use the DRIVE and COMP(pression) to create some enormous distorted megalithic monstrosities!

Creating monumental events that induce panic, fear and excitement amongst your audience has never been easier!

Sculptor is more than up to the task of bulking up any musical project, from pompous prog rock to video games and big screen blockbusters."

  • "The sounds are absolutely massive, a collection of strikes, metallic hits, earthquake and missile sounds, collisions, thunder and more. Used in isolation they are perfect for movie sound, with exactly the kind of character you’d expect from a blockbuster. Layered with drums they can be used to create huge percussion parts, again of the kind you hear in games or movies."
