Review: Sample Logic Cinematic Guitars Organic Atmospheres


So what is Cinematic Guitars Organic Atmospheres?

CGOA-picThis is a new library from the Cinematic Guitar series that is dedicated exclusively to Atmosphere and Soundscape instruments.

That means over 800 evolving, ambient, pads and soundscapes built from the organic foundations of the Cinematic Guitars series.

If you’re like me, and you dig atmospheres, but also love organic sounds, this is definitely one to check out.

It has the same custom interface so you can mix and match up to 4 soundcores, and each soundcore can have 2 soundsources each.

Not to mention all of the quick modulation, fx, and step animator…the interface lets you immediately and organically interact with all that dope content.

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderThere’s definitely a “guitar-ish” element to the patches, but if you know anything about Sample Logic, then you know they quickly take the original content to new places.

I love the organic texture of the patches and the longer you hold a note down the more evolution and morphing you’ll hear.

Even without any morphing the sounds are deep and evolving.

You can get everything from light and relaxing to dark and disturbing, quickly!

I also found that even though you may not think step sequencing or arp when dealing with atmospheres and evolving sounds, using the step animator can really give the instruments a different vibe.

Throw in the randomization plus the fact that you can quickly change the fx chain, you really have a lot of flexibility in this library, oh…and it really does sound great!

So what’s the bottom line?

If you’re familiar with Sample Logic then you probably know what to expect, if you’re not, then just know you’ll soon get over the feeling that having their products is unfair to everyone else.

Seriously, their libraries are always fun to play and easy to get great sounds without too much fuss, this one is no exception.

4andhalfsubsI give Cinematic Guitars Organic Atmospheres 4.5 out of 5 subs, it sounds great, there’s tons of content, and the interface makes it a powerful atmospheric workstation.

I’ve been a fan of Sample Logic for many years, and those of you that know me know I love atmospheres, so it was only right that I took some time to mess with this.
