Those sound sources were created using a rare Korg synthesizer, Roland classic and several acoustic and electric instruments (guitars, piano, viola). Pads and textures are an essential part of any modern cinematic track. Tajdo atmosphere glues extremely well a track. It spans over a wide range of vibes. You can add analog, emotional, mysterious, ruthless, organic, shimmering, gorgeous and suggestive sparkle to your track.
- 56 Pads (dark, light, organic, analog, granular – according to the developer granular patches can be quite CPU-heavy if many voices are used. Reducing the number of voices will instantly result in less CPU usage.

MIDIssonance produced Kubo in collaboration with BAFTA, and Ivor Novello called composer David Housden. The central characters for this sound set were Solar Fields’ ridiculous Mirror’s Edge score and music of post-rock giants like Sigur Rós and Hammock. Cliff Martinez’s work on Solaris and Drive was also one of the main influences in the creation of this palette of custom sounds that David used on his Q.U.B.E. 2 score. All those influences appeared in a collection of individual sounds with a pure nature with loads of acoustic sound sources processed in an assortment of ways – some more traditional sounding and some mangled and transported to another sonic world.
