Astrosphere is a collection of soundscape loops inspired by science fiction. Astrosphere evokes alien habitats, future technology, and spaces that defy the laws of physics. Incorporating circuit bending, granular and frequency modulation synthesis, and bespoke recordings of electric and mechanical devices, Astrosphere provides nearly an hour of imaginative material for film, game, theatre and radio production. Composers of electronic and ambient music will also find the soundscapes inspiring and useful. Each soundscape is over one minute in length, and meticulously edited to loop seamlessly without obviously repeating.

The total size of Astrosphere is 897Mb. The audio files are between 1:00 and 1:15 in length, and each file has a unique descriptive name. The files have been normalised without limiting, so as to preserve their dynamic range for further processing.
The files in Astrosphere are intended primarily to be placed directly on the timeline of a DAW or video editor, such as Cubase/Nuendo, Sonar, Vegas, Pro Tools, Logic, etc. The included sampler programs are for easy auditioning of sounds. The program for Kontakt 3 and above displays the name of the played file on the GUI when you press a key.
