FM8 Akheron is collection of 150 patches for Native Instruments’ FM8 synthesizer. Aimed at atmospheric film scoring and deep electronica, FM8 Akheron features crisp, metallic leads; powerful, rattling basslines; evocative, crystalline pads; eerie, atonal landscapes; penetrating, dynamic sequences; and huge, noisy basses. FM synthesis is often seen as convoluted and unwieldy. FM8 Akheron provides a wide sonic palette; from dark shadows to incandescent light. There is a haunting fragility and also a brutal strength. It is equally at home in the blood-curdling terror of a horror soundtrack as it is in the luminescent joy of an ambient project. FM8 Akheron contains sounds in both NFM8 and KSD format. NFM8 is the most up-to-date version of FM8 and utilizes all its most recent upgrades. Whereas KSD format is from an older version of FM8, but is also usable in NI Kore.
