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 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.
