From the creator of the award winning Ethera series Stefano Maccarelli, Zero-G ELEMENTS Modern Scoring Synth is an all-new, stupendously large, and powerful Kontakt Instrument. A unique new tool for creating contemporary soundtracks, cinematic music, underscoring and sound design.
All the samples included in Elements were created by recording organic sources, acoustic instruments, and particular environments.
Providing you with 3 powerful Layers, Elements is a unique wavetable Hybrid Synth. It has a huge wave-rom of over 23Gb and comes with an incredible array of useful sounds specifically developed for sound designers, and soundtrack composers.
For example, Zero-G have sampled an array of acoustic instruments including a superb old English Cello with a fantastic raw sound. Classical Guitar, Electric Guitar, Felt Piano, Hardware Modular Synths, Viking Horns, Mallet Instruments, Metal objects, traditional percussions and much more.
They have also used a particular underwater microphone to sample a lot of sounds and environments from a different perspective in order to create innovative sounds & textures.
For the Hybrid Sounds they have sampled many hundreds of organic sources and hardware synths to create an amazing tool for modern scoring.
ELEMENTS includes a collection of awesome vocals textures, hybrid instruments, organic synths, emotional cellos, guitars, tribal percussions, drum loops and much more. You will also find a massive collection of modern sounds created to fit the needs of modern music scoring.
We were inspired to create this massive wave-rom by many of the greatest contemporary TV and film soundtracks and composers.
Using the Snapshot Presets you already have about 500 cinematic presets ready to use and at your disposal.
These presets are organised into different categories: Bass, Cellos, Pad, Keys, Percussions, etc so you can easily find the sound you are looking for. And, of course, you can create your own presets from the myriad of samples available.
Many of these sounds are synchronised to the bpm of your DAW. We have sampled the original performance of the musician; in this way you have a playable instrument but with the authentic soul of the musician.
In fact, ELEMENTS is all that you will need to create fantastic contemporary scores for a multitude of uses.
