Mystic is the second in the Photosynthesis line of Kontakt libraries, an ambient cello library aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need otherworldly pads and soundscapes, unique cello articulations, and creative instrument effects.

Mystic includes 127 Kontakt .nki instruments, and a 2.25GB library of samples in .wav format (sound designers rejoice!). It's powered by the free Photosynthesis Engine, which allows extensive control over shaping the sounds, and is designed to make importing your own samples and creating your own instruments easy.

Impact Soundworks Furia Staccato Strings KONTAKT Impact Soundworks Furia Staccato Strings KONTAKT
FURIA Staccato Strings: A streamlined orchestral library designed solely for powerful ensemble string staccatos, Furia delivers instant gratification for film, TV, game & trailer scoring. The ideal tool for epic action string stabs and ostinatos, dramatic builds, and tense underscore rhythms!

FURIA - Key Features:

• Focused and powerful staccatos strings
• Instantly playable for fast, epic results
• Up to 16x round robin layers
• Ensemble size multiplier 1-8x
• Close + hall mic positions
• Easy envelope + sample shaping controls
• Brand-new virtual FX rack with randomizers
• Dozens of custom IRs - halls, rooms + more

String ensemble staccatos are a composer's best friend. Whether you need to accentuate dramatic rhythms in an action cue, create tension with a repeating ostinato line, build an epic swashbuckling main melody, or weave ominous arpeggiating textures, staccato strings are de facto standard.

Furia is a library tailor-made to deliver that very sound, and ONLY that sound. It is simple and streamlined, with no extraneous features or samples. As soon as you load it up and begin playing, you'll see the appeal of this elegant design. With no complex UI or exhaustive patch lists, you instead have an instant, highly-versatile staccato sound out-of-the-box.

Use Furia on its own with either (or both) of two included mic positions and a handy FX rack, or layer it with other orchestral sounds like our Bravura Scoring Brass for even more 'oomph'. Either way, we know you'll find it a fantastic and very practical tool for your template!

1. Ensemble Multiplier:
FSS was recorded with a 22-piece string ensemble. With this control, you can multiply the size of the ensemble up to 8x for an even more epic sound!

2. Timing Controls:
The Ensemble Timing knob controls the amount of random timing variation in the ensemble multiplier, while Sample Offset adjusts the sample playback to be more aggressive (at the cost of some pre-bow noise).

3. Mic Mixer:
Here you can load or unload either of the two included mic positions, plus change or automate their volume & stereo width.

4. Envelope Shaping:
Dial down the decay and sustain for a very tight and aggressive staccato sound, or turn them up with release to let each note ring out.

Selections from our brand-new, custom FX rack are also included with over 30 impulse responses to pick from. Or roll the dice with the (*) randomizer to inspire your creativity!

Below are required & recommended system specs for FURIA:
• Kontakt 5.3 or higher (FULL version, not player)
• 200MB disk space
• 2GB RAM
• Core i3 processor or better

Over 600 beat sliced loops arranged with an intuitive keymapping system.

Tonality and FX
This mashed up array of instruments strays from the traditional "meat and potatoes” sounds. This category includes complex instruments and pads such as Frozen Piano and Lydian Choir Gods, bringing an innovative quality to your arrangements.

Percussive Kits
Over 40 modern percussive-type menus and drum-like kits containing sounds gathered from an array of bizarre sources (warehouses, amusement parks, murky stairwells, and more). Whether it’s a massive hit, an ear piercing screech, or a subtle clang, this category provides an enormous variety of sounds for beat production.

Seq and Arp
Utilizing a custom step-sequence arpeggiator, users can control Velocity, Pan, and Filter on nearly 60 presets, ranging from percussive hits to tweaked pianos. Develop your own groove, or choose one of the 12 factory presets to get started.

– 44 x 24 Bit wav files

Knowledge:
Octoban Pvc ‘Rocket Drum’
Octoban drums, also known as tube toms and quarter toms, are tom-toms grouped in melodically-tuned sets of eight, hence the reference to octave, from octo meaning "eight”. Octobans have 15 cm (6 inch) diameter drum shells, and range in length from 280 millimeters (11 inches) to 600 millimeters (23-1/2 inches). The different lengths of the cylinders are what give each drum its distinct tone.
Though they were invented by Tama, many companies such as Pearl Drums and Peace Drums manufacture them today. Octobans have also been made under the name of "Quarter Toms”, "Oct-o-toms”, and even "Rocket Drums”.
Some companies have even made acrylic octobans. Many people have made their own octobans using PVC pipes. The Blue Man Group has also made their own octobans.
