I remember the first time I saw Morphestra, it was actually in a magazine of some sort, I hadn’t fully committed to software yet But this product looked amazing….
That was a few years ago This past summer Sample Logic had a crazy blowout sale, and I bought Morphestra along with a few other things.
And all was good….. Then, those crazy guys at Sample Logic recently introduced Morphestra Generations!
They took the original content, and bossed it up a bit, still including the original instruments. I was definitely interested….so let’s check this out!
What is Morphestra Generations?
This is a product they created in conjuntion with Kirk Hunter Studios…yes…the orchestral guy
So, you can imagine a huge orchestral library in the hands of those mad sound doctors at Sample Logic So Morphestra Generations is basically a huge collection of sound design, atmospheres, impacts, kits, hits, transitions, an instruments all based off of psycho-acoustic sounds.
Think bells, guitars, world instruments, strings, horns, woodwinds, drums, percussion and more…..all deeply “Samplelogified”… Oh yeah…that word just happened!
It’s a huge library, a deeply sampled instrument, of epic, sound manipulation proportions.
- content: 16GB, 1600+ instruments
- format: Kontakt Player 5, Kontakt 5
- price: $599.99

How does it sound?
Well I started off in the atmospheres and got lost…in a good way. I love the multi layers and textures you get from a single key press, the sounds are very long and evolving.
So many different textures and movements programmed into the sounds allows for some really unique character.
But it didn’t stop there, what impressed me the most was the diversity in the library. I mean sure you have the epic sound design stuff, but there were also very useful “traditional” elements as well.
Some of the bells, percussion, pianos, strings, winds, etc…were just plain awesome sounding.
It definitely sounds great, but for me the main draw is the diversity, it’s not so niche that it only has one sound throughout, it’s a very deep library that has multiple different elements and textures to play with.
So what’s the bottom line?
Like I said, I’ve been a fan of Morphestra ever since I saw the add in that magazine (it came on it’s own HD so it had to be awesome right?)
When I finally got my hands on it through their crazy sale I was definitely pleased, however, they took it to to a totally new level with Morphestra Generations
I give this library 5 out of 5 subs, it delevers tons of content that is diverse, complex, and most of all fun to play while maintaining it’s high sound quality.
If you’re into film, TV, media, or video game composition this is one of those must have libraries.
However, if you just wish to add a huge collection of high quality professionally morphed, mangled, and re-purposed sounds to your collection it’s something you may wish to look at as well. I personally love these types of sounds, and I feel the source material allows it to have a much more organic than electronic feel, which is perfect for me personally and I’m sure many others will agree.
