AMBIENT WHITE

 

Ambient White is the first of a linked pair of sound design-based virtual instruments designed to provide composers and producers with a collection of original instruments and textures suitable for all sorts of ambient music.

As its name implies, Ambient White covers the lighter end of the ambient spectrum, focusing on beautiful, peaceful, melodic, harmonious, and natural sounds. Ambient Black, the second VI in this series, covers the opposite end of the ambient spectrum.

The vast majority of the sounds used in the creation of Ambient White were derived from organic sources: found sounds and audio recordings subjected to extreme sound design techniques, prepared and/or heavily processed musical instruments, and sounds recorded in natural environments. The few synth sounds that were used were also processed with sound design techniques, and/or combined with various organic sounds and instruments.

The end result is a product that combines acoustic, humanistic, and electronic elements to produce an organic-sounding virtual musical instrument.

THE INTSTRUMENT PATCHES:

Ambient White features over 250 different instrument patches and combinations (almost 7.5GB of uncompressed WAV data *4GB compressed), divided into several categories:

1. Multi-Layered Instruments
2. Pads & Atmospheres
3. Melodic Instruments
4. Percussive Instruments
5. Bass Instruments
6. Looped Instrument Phrases
7. Effects & Textures

 

MULTI-LAYERED INSTRUMENTS:

The most complex instrument patches in Ambient White are the Multi-Layered Instruments, which were created using combinations of patches from the other six categories. These patches are arranged by their basic type, using the following prefixes:

  • ATMOS Layered Atmospheres and Pads
  • BASS Layered Bass Instruments
  • FX Layered Effects & Textures
  • LOOP Layered Looped Phrases
  • MELO Layered Melodic Instruments
  • PERC Layered Percussive Instruments

 

Multi-Layered Instrument Patches

Many of the Multi-Layered Instrument patches consist of multiple evolving atmospheres, chordal and/or melodic components, and/or looped phrases. For best results, try playing these patches with one finger, in octaves, or in fifths. This doesn’t apply to Layered PERC patches, which in general don’t have any pronounced melodic or harmonic content; playing multiple notes at a time with these Layered patches can produce some interesting polyrhythmic patterns.

Effects & Textures

The Effects & Textures category includes a number of patches that were mainly designed to work in tandem with other types of patches. These patches were designed with that in mind.

Percussive Instruments

The Percussive Instruments include several different acoustic and electronic drum kits. There’s also a selection of tuned hand drums, cymbals and gongs, and other percussive sounds.

Pads & Atmospheres

Many of the Pads & Atmospheres also include chordal components. When trying these patches for the first time, it’s probably best to play them with one finger or in octaves. You can then experiment with playing different intervals, depending on the level of harmonic complexity you’re looking for.

Melodic and Bass Instruments

The Melodic and Bass Instruments are mainly single-note patches. However, a few of these patches also few have some underlying harmonic content, and can be used as Pads.

Looped Instrument Phrases

The Looped Instrument Phrases include simple repeating patterns and some more-complex patterns created by mixing multiple loops together. Many of the loops lock to tempo, but some do not; this was done intentionally, in order to add an element of randomness and unpredictability to some of the patches. Looped Instrument Phrases should be played like the Pads & Atmospheres, using solo notes or octaves for less-complex patterns and different intervals for more experimental and harmonically-dense effects.

AMBIENT BLACK

Ambient Black is the second of a linked pair of sound design-based virtual instrument designed to provide composers and producers with a collection of original instruments and textures suitable for all sorts of ambient music.

As it's name implies, Ambient Black covers the darker end of the ambient spectrum, focusing on harsh, aggressive, atonal, mysterious, and industrial sounds. Ambient White, the first VI in this series, covers the opposite end of the ambient spectrum.

The majority of sounds used in the creation of Ambient Black were derived from organic sources: found sounds and audio recordings subjected to extreme sound design techniques, prepared and/or heavily processed musical instruments, and sounds recorded in natural environments. Those synth sounds that were used were also processed with sound design techniques, and/or combined with various organic sounds and instruments.

The end result is a product that combines acoustic, humanistic, industrial, and electronic elements to produce an organic-sounding virtual musical instrument.

THE INSTRUMENT PATCHES:

Ambient Black features over 280 different instrument patches and combinations (over 6.5 GB of uncompressed wav data), divided into seven categories:

1. Multi-Layered Instruments
2. Drones & Atmospheres
3. Bass Instruments
4. Percussive Instruments
5. Melodic Instruments
6. Looped Instrument Phrases
7. Effects & Textures

This suggestion doesn't apply to Layered PERC patches, which in general don't have any pronounced melodic or harmonic content; playing multiple notes at a time with these Layered patches can produce some interesting polyrhythmic patterns.

Effects & Textures

The Effects & Textures category includes a number of strange and aggressive sounds that were primarily designed to be used mainly as cinematic sound design elements. Most don't have an identifiable pitch or key-center, though some can be used as drones in certain musical contexts.

Percussive Instruments

The Percussive Instruments include several different acoustic, industrial, and electronic drum kits. There's also a selection of cinematic hits, glitches, industrial sounds, and other unusual percussive sounds.

Drones & Atmospheres

Many of the Drones & Atmospheres are long, and evolve over time. Try holding a key for 10, 20, or even 30 seconds, and listen to how each of these sounds develops. Because most of these sounds are huge and dense, try playing just single notes or octaves.

Melodic and Bass Instruments

The Melodic and Bass Instruments are mainly single-note patches. However, a few of these patches also few have some underlying harmonic content, and can be used as Pads.

Looped Instruments

The Looped Instruments include simple repeating patterns and some more-complex patterns created by mixing multiple loops together. Most of the loops lock to tempo, but some do not; this was done intentionally, in order to add an element of randomness and unpredictability to some of the patches. Looped Instruments should be played like the Drones & Atmospheres, using solo notes or octaves for less-complex patterns and different intervals for more experimental and harmonically-dense effects.

AMBIENT WHITE

"There are a number of notable basses, not least the excellent Gu Quin (a Chinese zither). This proves to be one of the many tastefully rendered Asian flavours ideal for world music, ethnic library tracks, etc.” – Sound on Sound

"If you like ambient textures and soft melodic instruments, go check this out [...] I love the acoustic nature of the instruments, even though they are sound design elements, the “instrumental” origin really gives it a nice feel" - Soundsandgear

 

AMBIENT BLACK

"This is an incredibly well-produced collection of terrifying and unsettling sounds that would be an excellent toolkit for anyone working on dark music or media projects" - Rating 8/10 - MusicTech

"Ambient Black is made from some very cool sounds that will inspire and complement your next dark score[..] This dark, industrial, dystopian tool kit could be just what you need if your looking for something new to inspire or augment your next suspense score. After a quick play-through of the instruments I was inspired to start creating a sinister sculpture of musical maleficence." - Sample Library Review
