The 2 gigabyte sound library will quickly have you creating scary atmospheres and haunting textures, perfect for science fiction scenes, horror flicks, moody atmospherics or just to have some fun with friends and family. However, this instrument is no joke. It is a serious tool for creating music of all types.
Solo trumpets, brass sections, modelled brass strikes and chalkboard screeching crescendos; there’s some kind of brass for all tastes and palletes.
From the beautiful to the horrific, Monstrous’ strings are incredible. You get string sections, evil string effects, solo instruments and off-note modelled strings that bring another dimension to your productions.
Pianos, organs and keys allow you to add evil passages and creepy notes. I’ve included a nice selection of weird and zany keyboards as well as a sweet grand piano and vibes that sound almost like a xylophone.
Plucked instruments in there too – like a beautifully haunting six string guitar, viola plucks and more.
Basslines are also represented. You get booming and rumbling sounds that can shake any room. There are plenty of looped generators and effects that have incredible bass tones. Brass bass and string bass add that orchestral element. Finally, Acoustic and analog bass round out this section.
How about some massive percussion, creepy bells, cathedral chimes and all kinds of large-scale hits and strikes? Yep, that’s in Monsterous, too.
Lastly, there’s some really appropriate sound effects. You get electrical arcs, tesla zaps, thunderstorms, creaky doors, slams, laughs, evil phrases, monsters and much more.
