Orchestral Dust is a dual voiced ROMpler focusing on orchestral underscore and ambient/hybrid pads. There are over 60 snapshots included to get great sounds right away, but it also offers a deep level of sound shaping and tweaking possibilities. You can load 12 different multisampled orchestral instruments into each of the voices, including violins, cellos, basses, trombones, bassoons, clarinets, french horns, trumpets, etc. Each separate instrument also offers various articulations (loud sustains, vibrato, soft sustains, staccatos, etc) and various ensemble sizes (large, small, and solo instruments), which gives you some surprisingly nice, organic, orchestral instruments to build upon.
What sets this library apart, is how it does not focus solely on realistic orchestral samples, but combining those sounds with a granular synthesis engine and effects, gates, envelopes and filters to get some truly weird, crazy results. While you can hear the natural instruments as the base of the sound, you get some really wild and experimental results once you begin to mangle and shape the sounds to your heart’s desire.
KeyTone offers some similar features as Orchestral Dust, this time focusing on creating your own hybrid keys/synth sounds using the familiar dual voiced engine and various effects. You can load up everything from pianos and electric pianos to organs, synths, and even emulations of classic sounds like the Yamaha DX-7, and much more.
Both libraries offer ADSR controls, and similar effects, including filters, chorus, distortion, delays, flanger, formants, and more, which you can arrange and order in any way you want for both of the voices in each instrument.
These libraries are great for ambient music, cinematic underscoring, and even synthwave and pop music.
