Orchestral Tools: Modus—Jeff Russo
Having the right tools makes the difference between getting a job done, and getting it exactly right. Modus—Jeff Russo offers a toolset that will inspire new ideas, and help you implement them quickly.
Designed specifically for TV scoring and underscoring, Modus was commissioned by Emmy-award winning composer Jeff Russo for his work on Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard.
Jeff Russo is a composer based in LA. His TV scoring credentials are outstanding: Jeff won an Emmy for his composition on the Fargo series and has contributed the scores for Legion, Altered Carbon, The Umbrella Academy, and more.

Create Tensions instant on-screen suspense: Build complex chords, overtone series, and clusters with a single key, using the mod wheel as a tension controller. Change scenes easily with Transitions: Custom-recorded transitions swell to a crescendo before switching mood with a new pitch or articulation. Indispensable for underscoring are the included Continuums: Carefully constructed pads shift through multiple layers and textures, creating space and atmosphere.
Alongside a playable shakuhachi flute and a Klingon choir, Modus—Jeff Russo offers a toolset that will inspire new ideas, and help you implement them quickly.
Perform tensions, transitions, and continuums easily in a variety of symphonic and choral flavors. And with a palette of unique instrumental colors, you can create sonic worlds that no-one has ever heard before.
