The Sci-Fi Synth From a Dystopian Future
Bladerunner – a film which any self respecting film buff will tell you is a masterpiece due to many factors including the mesmerising synth score by Vangelis.
As composers, we’ve all sought the perfect re-creation of the lead sound which defined the score. Now look no further… the sounds which permeate the score have been unEarthed!
Esper Synth sets out to accurately recreate some of the most iconic sounds from the score including the brassy leads and pads found throughout.
The Essence of Bladerunner from an Original CS80 Synth
This isn’t a synth recreation or samples taken directly from the soundtrack. Esper Synth is sampled directly from patches painstakingly re-created on an actual CS80 synth, which is, in essence, the sound of Bladerunner. The brass leads are the highlight of the library and are extremely playable out of the box. No knob turning, no digging for the perfect reverb, just load and play.
In most cases, the volume of each patch is mapped directly to the modwheel for easy dynamic control. The Noir Sci-Fi styled GUI contains controls for Low, Mid and High EQ as well as attack / release sliders, a reverb / space control knob and a button to turn the patch from poly to monophonic if you’re after authenticity.
The deal ends in:
Brassy Leads, Pads, Bells & Huge Off World Percussion
There are 5 versions of “the” brassy lead sound, 4 pads, 2 bell instruments and even a HUGE off world percussion section (inspired by the Bladerunner main title cue) with reverb baked in 12 patches in total.
Are these exact re-creations? Nope, but extremely close and a heck of a lot of fun to play. Perfect for Bladerunner fans or your next sci-fi score.
Curious just how close we got in this re-creation experiment? Just checkout these demos – everything heard is from Esper Synth.

What People Think About 71% off “Esper Synth” by unEarthed Sampling
"Love what UnEarthed Sampling has done with this instrument. It is unique and exciting and I could be wrong but I don’t know of another “concept” library out there like this one.
As a composer myself who sets out to create a “world of sound” when scoring, I love how UnEarthed Sampling has captured a world of a famous score and fashioned it into the Esper Synth. Rich, full and spot on, Esper Synth conjures a sci-fi world with just the touch of a key."
