Ambiosis is particularly useful for ambient, dance, film soundtrack and trance composers where the sounds can often provide the creative impetus for a new track or to add the finishing touches to an exisiting composition. Ambiosis serves as a fine electronic music resource for producers who need to apply texture, mood, and ambience across a wide variety of genres. Categories include: Analogue, Atmospheres, Dark, Light, Spacey, Vintage & Weird.
Ian writes: “In those early days it was sufficient to release a 650Mb CD full of audio only tracks and let the end user sample map & loop the material. Over the intervening years such libraries evolved through CD-ROMs in sampler-ready formats through to full blown virtual instruments with synthesiser-like front ends. The advantages of the latter are many but the instruments tend to be expensive, the samples are tied to their own interface and they seem to consume ever increasing amounts of hard disc real estate.
With this in mind it was refreshing for me when ZG asked me to create the material for Ambiosis. I was able to use some of the cutting edge techniques I had employed on my recent virtual instruments Morphology & Outer Limits but in a nice simple, inexpensive format that would hopefully bring the availability of these sounds to a much wider audience.
Once again I was able to make extensive use of my lovely old analogue equipment, VCS-3, Minimoog, Roland & Moog modular systems but in conjunction with modern day digital manipulations from the likes of Metasynth, Reaktor, Pluggo, SFX Machine, Audioease, Camel Audio etc., to create a library with a unique sound palette.”
This fantastic library comes in two formats that should suit every music producer.
