Atmospheric Soundscape Generator
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Spookomatic is one of a kind instrument for generating eerie ambiances, melancholic pads and spooky atmospheres.
It is using multiple layers of melodic sounds, background ambiances and sequenced environment noises, all being dynamically transformed by an array of step sequenced modulators, to create an organic, rich, living soundscapes.
As the name suggests, the instrument is focused on chilly, mysterious and creepy tones, while not being deadly serious. Like a generic horror flick, it's a bit scary and a little silly, yet unlike a horror movie it can be quite unpredictable.
The instrument requires full version of NI Kontakt sampler, version 5.5.2, or newer to run.
Depending on patch, it may be rather CPU intensive (there's a lot going on under the hood).
LIVING BREATHING ORGANIC RANDOMISATION
- 21 melodic sound sources, created with acoustic instruments (guitars, reed organ, voice, non-musical objects), vintage analog synthesizer and digital synthesis,
- 30 types of background noise from field recordings, or digital sound manipulation,
- 192 noise fragments to create sequenced ambiance,
- up to 10 sound layers,
- up to 110 modulation sequencers,
- 4 instrument configurations,
- 144 selected presets,
- 999999999 possible patches.
STEP SEQUENCE MODULATORS
Spookomatic features advanced step sequence modulator programs for different parameters, like pan, tune, filters cutoff and send effect levels, in each sound layer. What is unusual about this, is that the step sequencers can be interpolated, that is, the parameter values can change gradually in between sequence steps, according to different curves.
There may be up to eleven sequencers per layer, running at different speeds and different cycles, creating quite non-repetitive, yet tempo synchronized textures.

Spookomatic is a self-configuring instrument, it automatically creates random patches, which can be tweaked afterwards.
Just press the shuffle button and hear what you can find, sort of a ghost in the machine.
Spookomatic is capable of generating a near infinite amount of unique, layered sounds in a semi-random and modular fashion. The results are astounding and mesmerising.

strange and eerie and great !
Great Pad Machine
Ah man I love this thing! Instant cool pads and fx, with some really interesting and complex evolving sounds. Great fun to play with as well, instantly gratifying and usable.
Maniacal and more, with a manual
I fooled around with this, then put it aside, then came back to it and dug into it (website, YouTube, the manual). Really glad I did. This thing is just amazing for the sonic surprises it provides and the features and capabilities of the underlying engine. Your efforts in visiting the website (fairlyconfusing.net) and taking the time to view the video (with many pauses to absorb info) and read the manual WILL be rewarded. This thing offers a lot of sound and a lot of features wrapped in a creative, unconventional package. SzcZ IS scary.
just what I required
I found this when I was hunting down a surprising haunting sound generator, tameable and all the way to 11, crazy spooky sounds: what else could I expect from SzCz!
Haunting, spooky, interesting
I once produced an album with the sounds of Spookomatic on every track. I used it as random, spooky sounds generator and it worked very well. It‘s easy to create haunting atmospheres with it. If you like this kind of stuff, you should buy it. For that price it‘s totally worth...

CONCLUSION: If you like weird, it's for you. But also if you like new sound universes, it's for you too. The sound is very good and you can really obtain the things that will cost you a lot of work with other synths. A lot of features, a lot of possibilities, good presets, highly innovative, not CPU intensive. You're surely like it, use it and appreciate it.
