Zebra Luminae: Dark Edition is a collection of 128 patches (for a total of 256 sounds) for u-he Zebra HZ, that also comes with the original Zebra Luminae for u-he Zebra. This soundset is focused on evolution and energy; each patch featuring subtle and kinetic movement and life. Primarily designed to suit underscore style music, there is plenty within Luminae to suit the rigours of epic/trailer music or the soulfulness of ambient electronica. At times minimalist, at others agile and aggressive; Luminae delivers sparkling sequences, strong basslines, vigorous drum loops, voluptuous pads, febrile soundscapes, and fragile leads.
With a focus on movement and energy, there are many more sequenced sounds in Luminae. Deep, punchy basslines bring tension; noise-based percussion loops provide dynamism; bell and mallet synth sequences release emotion. Plus, the pads and soundscapes flutter, twist and evolve, providing an equal amount of light and darkness into your compositions.
All of this comes wrapped in an organic, analogue vibe; influenced by a playlist that has featured Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross; Ben Frost; Thomas Newman; Nils Frahm; Hecq; and Cliff Martinez, amongst others.
The Dark Edition takes the original Zebra sounds and adapts and modifies them utilising Zebra HZ’s darker, more analogue sound.
Each patch comes with added adaptability programmed into the modwheel and the X/Y pads, to make these Luminae sounds even more expressive.
