Ambient sounds with character
Absynth Heliopolis is a collection of 128 evocative sounds aimed at ambient music, but also perfect for modern film scoring and deep electronica.
'Matt is a master at creating brilliant new sounds. Heliopolis is no exception. It?s one of those banks I wish he wouldn?t sell to anybody else!'
- Sascha Dikiciyan, aka Sonic Mayhem, Composer/Producer (Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Tron: Evolution, Quake Series)
The collection is full of dark and beautiful pads, soaring and twisting soundscapes, subtle and shifting leads and keys, plus gentle and disturbing synth sequences and basslines. Something of a 'concept album' style soundset, each prest has been designed to reflect the fictional city of Heliopolis: a once great metropolis on a distant planet, now reduced to dust and decay, with only sombre stories to relive its once great history.
So, if you're looking for huge but subtle ambiences, beautiful but disturbed synth noises, then Absynth Heliopolis is the soundset for you.
Heliopolis requires Absynth 5 (some sounds will not work in Absynth 4) and uses the .nabs format.
