- Mac: Macintosh HD ▸ Library ▸ Application Support ▸ u-he ▸ Repro-1 ▸ NKS ▸ Repro-5
Luftrum 19 contains 128 fine patches from Stephan Baer and Luftrum (144 patches in total, with variations).
Both producers have been motivated by ambient cinematic film scores like Interstellar, Gravity, Blade Runner and 400 Days by modern composer Wojciech Golczewski and on the other side inspired by vintage analog and digital synths and the albums that came to life from those synths in the early to mid 80’s with albums by Vince Clarke, Enya and Vangelis.
User interface & Usability
It is the Repro5 Interface. The patches are sorted by the producer.
Rating: Five out of five stars
Luftrum 19 is an outstanding collection of cinematic, underscoring atmospheres, pads, basses, leads, and keys. Another Luftrum collection that you can use widely for many genres when you compose a cinematic score or produce ambient, or EDM.
After spending some hours with it, composing a quick score in concert with Orchestral Swarm I am shocked how surpassing this sound set library is.
