Photosynthesis Vol 1 - Sphere
Version: Kontakt 5.5 / WAV / V1
Soundtrack and Ambient
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Sphere is a powerful sample library for Kontakt, aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need gorgeous evolving pads, dark soundscapes, rhythmic underscore, and creative instrument effects.
If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Photosynthesis Vol 1 - Sphere
127 Kontakt NKIs
Sphere includes 127 Kontakt instruments, and a 1.85GB library of samples in .wav format. It's powered by the free Photosynthesis Engine, which allows extensive control over shaping the sounds, and is designed to make importing your own samples and creating your own instruments easy.
- 21 Organic Instruments
- 31 Pads
- 27 Rhythmic Instruments
- 16 Soundscapes
- 13 Synths
- 19 Unprocessed Instruments
- 816 .wav Samples
- 33 Guitar Rig 5 Pro Presets
Most sounds today are on the harsh side, it's a pleasure to find one that is soothing! Good sound manipulation tools make this one a winner in my book.
Gorgeous Pads, mighty synths, worth every cent
In my humble opinion there's no library suited for darker ambient and cinematic stuff that is comparable in terms of price-performance ratio.
Fantastic ambient library in the range of Spitfire Audio's Enigma
This is, hands down, one of the best Kontakt libraries you can buy. For relatively small price, you get incredibly flexible engine (Photosynthesis) and a collection of inspiring and warm sounding presets that sound fantastic out-of-the-box, but are easily manipulated thanks to the extensive controls. The sounds are all derived from basic instruments such as electric and acoustic guitar, piano, zither and cello, but they've been transformed into outerwordly textures that can often rival sounds found in Spitfire Audio's phenomenal Enigma library. The Photosynthesis engine itself is a masterpiece and it isn't suprising that more and more 3rd party developers of Kontakt libraries use Photosynthesis as the base. Even more incredible is the fact that the author of the engine made it completely free to use. Personally, I'm quite emotionaly attached to Sphere. I've used its sounds in various forms extensively on my two albums that will be commercialy released in due time.
This thing is great
For composers looking for great atmospheric beds, this tool is fantastic. I also find myself using it a lot in pop/post-rock songs, as a lot of the sounds retain the organic qualities of the guitar source recordings.
