Spine-tingling suspense, transcendent transitions, and haunting transmissions – MYSTERIA is our new vocal instrument for straight-to-picture cinematic scoring, built-in collaboration with Uli Baronowsky and Galaxy Instruments. Build and control powerful atmospheres in seconds, harness thousands of voices in a click, and take things deeper for full sonic control.

MYSTERIA is a one-of-a-kind cinematic instrument that captures the human voice’s unique ability to convey unmediated emotion. Play unusual and arcane textures live, and use an otherworldly mass of choirs, vocals, and textures to create high-tension shifts, angelic transmissions, and soaring transitions that are imbued with the innately human. MYSTERIA harnesses hours of specially recorded choirs, curated to convey the entire spectrum of human emotion, from the intimate to the sublime.

An indispensable scoring tool for big-screen soundtracks, game scores, sound installations, or live theater productions, MYSTERIA’s all-original content features vocal recordings and hybrid sound design. The modulation engine gives control over different blend modes, a variety of modulation parameters like pitch and pan, up to five effects, EQ, reverb, and the renown REPLIKA delay. Every detail can be adjusted and personalized manually, or sounds can be created by chance using the randomize feature. The sample sets and modulations are performed together using an XYPad, for a completely new way to design and play cinematic textures and builds

MYSTERIA Vocal Sources

While MYSTERIA uses vocal sources, it is not strictly a musical instrument but more of a performance effect engine. Most Snapshots will not even use the note information from your MIDI keyboard; the MIDI is only used to trigger the sound.


The power of MYSTERIA comes from the XY-Pad – with this you can control the tension and drama of the sound, as well as a morph between the two halves of the sound. The concept is that you hold a sound and then adjust it with the XY-Pad in sync with your project. Because of this, MYSTERIA is a tool well suited to scoring film, television, and video games.

MYSTERIA’s sound engine is based on blending two identical sound generators. These generators are called Layers and contain a combination of samples and effects. Most control pages in the instrument are divided into three sections with the XY-Pad in the center, and the controls for Layer A and Layer B to the left and right of the pad.
