So what is Cyborg?
Cyborg is a “hybrid” cinematic style library, meaning you get organic instruments and sound sources mixed with synthesized fx and sound design.
It is a Kontakt Player library with a super simple interface, but don’t let that fool you, there’s plenty of power in the interface.
The custom interface covers all of the basic controls you’d need, envelope, fx, delay, reverb, eq, and filter.
As for the content, there’s a bunch of patches in 5 categories, as well as a huge collection of multis, plenty to keep you busy for a while.
- content: 7.83GB, 147 patches, 144 multis
- format: Kontakt Player 5
- price: $199.95

So how does it sound?
The first section I went to was the atmosphere & drones of course, and I wasn’t disappointed at all. The sounds were quick loading but had plenty of movement.
The sounds evolved and changed over time, plus, with a quick tweak of the interface I could quickly adjust it taste.
I also found some useful drum kits, and even the melodic guitar loops held some gems. The cinematic fx were good as well, but my favorites were definitely the atmospheres, some of the drum kits, oh…and the multis!
There are some really cool multis in here and again I have to stress, these patches load very quick, for someone like me, that’s important…because I’m impatient 🙂
So what’s the bottom line?
If you’re looking for something a little different from the norm, or just a bit of a mixture between organic and synthesized sound design then you’ll definitely want to check this out.
I give Cyborg 4 out of 5 subs, it has plenty of great sounds with a super simple yet fully functional interface, and the sounds do not take forever to load…so you can get to work quickly.
I’ll definitely stress that these patches are more ambient, or shall I say, they have a slower evolving attack to them. Of course you could adjust to taste but the idea isn’t to provide a bunch of melodic instruments.
Even the bass patches had more of a slow attack to them.
Also, there are a lot of loops from synth/key arps to guitar and drum loops. Overall it’s really a nice package for cinematic, media, and game scoring or anyone into these types of sounds….like I do!
