6 Hours of Recordings
Mystic is derived entirely from nearly 6 hours of cello recordings, processed and twisted into over 120 beautiful Kontakt instruments. Alongside the processed instruments are raw solo cello articulations.
This isn't a standard cello library, so there's no legato or staccato patch, but rather unique playing styles like artificial harmonics, harmonic tremolos, sustained ricochets, sul ponticello, harmonic glissandos, and more.
Pena does it again
Like Photosynthesis 1, this library is again full of great cinematic atmospheres.
Easy on the budget and filled with wonderful sound design.
Wonderful cellos and pads
Photosynthesis Vol.2, is really perfect to achieve ambient/soundtracks, and lovely soundscapes composition. Beautiful cellos and pads. I look forward to Vol. 3
Photosynthesis = G-R-E-A-T!!!
All of the Photosynthesis libraries by Exotic States are AWESOME! These are some of my favorite libraries. Mystic is simply beautiful. The pads are amazing, and there are just so many cool sounds in here. This is one of the few libraries that I would select for my "stuck on a deserted island" list. It is really, really, one of my favorites. I own all of the Photosynthesis libraries, and it is one of the only series that is a must-have for me.
Great Film Library
Great library for movies. I associate with "The Road" (sundtrack by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis). I like cello effects. I don't know any other such library. Excellent for building mood and filling the background. Very nice pads. Well they lie in the mix.
Photosynthesis Vol 2 - Mystic
This synth is hard hitting great for trailer music
Excellent and original cello library
This library has some really great cello sounds and has a different approach to other cello libraries. As they state; it doesn't have a legato patch so it is not good for playing melodies but works great for drones and pads. I have used it in conjunction with a much more expensive legato library and the two work together excellently. Personally I prefer the unprocessed organic patches but the processed and the granular patches are also very good.
