Hey what’s good fam, back with another review for ya
Today I’m reviewing a product from Samplephonics
The company has some pretty creative and great sounding libraries
Today I’m checking out an ambient product called “Ambient Soundspheres”
Let’s check it!
So what is Ambient Soundspheres?
It’s a collection of 104 ambient evolving soundbeds.
Not just short loops, some of these samples are up to 35 seconds long.
Lot’s of layering and complex sounds going on here, for you to chop or play or just lay on the timeline.
I’m a fan of ambient pad like textures so you know I had to take a look at this one
- content: 972MB
- format: WAV, Kontakt, EXS24, NN-XT
- price: $56.32
How does it sound?
I like the mixture of acoustic/organic instruments with electronic and synthesized sounds.
The samples themselves are really complex yet retain a nice organic feel to them.
Sometimes it’s just a long smooth chord while other times it can be a pulsating texture or a complex evolution of various sounds and patterns.
I really like that you get sampler instruments in addition to the raw audio as being able to play these across the keys really makes it easy to use them for pads and chord work.
The recording quality itself is really well done and the fx and other processing use really give you some complex tones.
These really feel more like textures than melodies or riffs, which is the idea I suppose, and they convey that idea pretty well.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you’re like me and you love using complex ambient tones and textures as the backdrop or even as the main tone in your tracks, definitely give these a listen.
I like that mixture of acoustic and synthetic as it really creates some rather simple yet complex textures that you can let play out or use short pieces of to build your own melodies.
I give Ambient Soundspheres 4 out of 5 subs, the samples really are inspiring
I know I’m partial to these type of sounds but I would really love to see some more pad/texture type libraries from this company, the quality and sound is just awesome.
I’d love to see them push it further and get into some custom Kontakt interface scripting for such a library as I think they could really deliver something quite usable and unique.
Anyway, check out their demos for yourself: http://store.samplephonics.com/products/ambient-soundspheres
