Luftrum 23 SoundSet for Arturia Pigments 2
Luftrum 23 is an ambient cinematic soundbank for the film scoring space traveler and the electronic producer, containing 100 presets for Arturia Pigments 2 with 75 original presets and 25 alternative versions, plus 22 FX presets for the reverb and delay effects.
The soundbank is designed to evoke emotions and raise questions about the depths of space and time, journeys to the unknown, life and existence and the symbiosis between the tiny pale blue dot we call Earth and the vast eternal universe, with inspirations drawn from artists like Biosphere, Jonn Serrie, Vangelis, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Stellardrone, Ascendant and Steve Roach.
The set is created by Luftrum and taking the sounds back-to-basics in the vein of early Luftrum releases with rich pads, silky Vangelis-like keys, bit-crushed yet mellow synth leads, underscoring textures and conceptual granular work with sonics originating from space itself – like the dusty, mesmerizing granular pad Stillness of Stars sculpted out of a short snippet of otherworldly frequencies from Voyager 2 as it passed through the outer magnetosphere in 1979 and the pulsing drone based on the cryptic FRB signals from deep space billions of light-years away, which are intercepted, noise reduced and timestretched 350 times.
All presets got a few dB headroom, have mod-wheel assigned and aftertouch where it gave meaning. The soundbank is fully NKS ready with NKS presets and audio previews. There’s a PDF guide included, describing how to install the set – which is an easy one-click installation.
