ABOUT THE SCULPTOR SERIES
SCULPTOR is a series of Kontakt libraries by Gothic Instruments that cover different aspects of sound design (impacts, whooshes, drops and rises), with new sound sets released regularly at a discount to existing customers.
The SCULPTOR mission is to give you world-class raw material, huge customisation by recombining sound fragments and adjusting sound-shaping dials, while keeping it simple and highly expressive.
Imagine something very big going past your face very quickly - these sounds add huge energy and excitement to music and percussion!
SCULPTOR Massive Whooshes features thousands of raw sounds recorded and processed by Alessandro Camnasio who has been responsible for the sound design of many Hollywood trailers including Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Resident Evil 6 and Mad Max Fury Road, to name a few. Derived from a variety of organic and synthetic sources including water, rocks, fire, animals, machines and electromagnetic noise, these raw sounds can be arranged in millions of combinations making Massive Whooshes an inexhaustible tool that will remain a permanent fixture in your sound design armoury.
The 134 included presets have been designed for speed and convenience and are organised into 8 master folders (Clean, Detuned, Extreme, Gated, High Speed, Reverse Stops, Special FX, Velocity Control) to help you quickly find what you need.
Of the sound creation, Alessandro says... "As you can imagine by listening to the sounds, the Doppler effect was of paramount importance for adding a sense of speed and realism to this library. Apart from that, granular synthesis and re-synthesis are some of my favourite techniques to create interesting sonic textures and take the original recordings to a whole new level, while preserving the "organic" quality. I also experiment a lot with complex effects chains and signal routing, to enhance a sound or completely mangle it. Convolution and morphing are other techniques that were useful to twist the sounds in exotic and unpredictable ways. Once I am happy with a sound, I finalise it by tuning a mastering chain that includes different compressors, enhancers and limiters that I activate and change on a case by case basis.
