Hestia was the Greek goddess of hearth and home, known for her gentle nature, which is a perfect analogy for this library release. Hestia focuses on soft, gentle, and playable sounds for film composers. There are over 250 piano-esque-inspired keyboard sounds, bells, pads, playable textures, and soundscapes, synthesized from all sorts of amazing sound sources, including some custom samples as well. Hestia requires Omnisphere 2.6 or newer

Hestia contains over 250 Patches and 50 Multis for Omnisphere. Known for her gentle nature, this goddess of hearth and home is a perfect analogy for Ashen Audio’s first release, Hestia. Custom crafted by film composer and synth programmer Eric J Watkins, Hestia was created for film composers needing the softest, most gentle melodic percussion, pads, bells, and playable textures in their film scores or productions in general. These sounds are beautifully gentle and playable, with extra care placed into their response to velocity and and the mod-wheel for a powerfully expressive experience.

About Ashen Audio

Welcome to Ashen Audio, founded by composer Eric J Watkins.  Ashen Audio was born of my need for custom sounds I would use to score a film with Omnisphere.  Having literally hundreds of commercially available sample libraries and virtual instruments, Eric still creates his own sounds. Sounds that will carry the soft, heart-felt, emotional scenes, sounds that will carry the pace, and sounds that will sear you with their heat. Ashen Audio is about dialing-in the emotional content and just as importantly, being wonderfully expressive to play.
