Roomscape is an ambient infinite tape playback machine designed to generate infinite soundscapes derived from real-world field recordings of interior and exterior
The unique feature of Roomscape is that it is designed to emulate a tape machine in that you simply press play and then blend and modulate up to 4 sources as it plays.
This gives incredibly unique evolving soundscapes that never stop!
All sounds in Roomscape have been provided by 3Maze Sound Effects Libraries.
Please Note - The FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or above is required - Not Kontakt Player compatible.
10 SOUND CATEGORIES
4 sounds sources, each with 10 sound categories. All sounds are accessible using the pop-up browser system and mixer settings are retained per sound.
Roomscape allows nearly every single control to be modulated over time.
With a dedicated pop-up modulation system with between 4 and 128 steps per conrol it is possible to create pulses, stepped sequences or long smooth progressions and adjust the speed individually for every control.
If you don't know how to use snapshots in Kontakt then you don't know what you are missing. They load quicker, can be organised better and shared easier than using a bunch of nkis.
Roomscape ships with 67 snapshots in 6 different categories to get you started. Categories are:
- Alien Spaces
Please ensure you place the snapshots in the correct location on your computer. Please refer to the documentation and our FAQs for more details.
Roomscape contains 4 Send FX slots, each slot can be populated with 1 of 5 FX. Each channel can then send the signal to each slot.
This makes it very easy to quickly swap effects on the fly without having to re-assign them for each source.
Roomscape has a serial system to prevent piracy. When you purchase Roomscape you will receive a serial number. Please refer to the video in your download area which shows how to unlock Roomscape and install the presets.
The good news first: All the features and functionality of Chordscape 1.1 at about 1/5 the price. The bad news: Nowhere near the number of snapshots and variety of sounds. I view Roomscape not as a sequel to Chordscape but as a mostly urban, foley-esque, niche addition. The Roomscape engine can perform modulation madness and miracles on the sound sources but urban soundscapes and spaces and transit sounds, not tonal highlights, are the focus of Roomscape. Some of the snapshots can be initially irritatatingly quiet, too subtle, or seemingly too slow to develop but, with the exception of the slow development (no ADSR), the lower levels are eventually appreciated in light of possible loudness issues due to the large modulation ranges and options available---and easily compensated for with volume adjustments. Check out the video to hear if this instrument has a focus that will serve your needs. It's definitely niche and not easily melodic in any usual sense. It does pique my interest for a possible "Hallscape" instrument loaded with orchestral instrument samples or a "Worldscape" instrument loaded with exotic instruments. The engine itself is awesome. Five stars for the engine, three for the niche sample set, above average overall for the niche-manipulability combination.
