Media Reviews 

"DRONAR is excellent for creating a near-infinite range of textured effects that work really well for soundtrack and experimental projects." - AskAudio Read the review in full

"DRONAR is difficult to ignore, offering as it does a significant chunk of finally-produced, often luxurious material at a very reasonable price. Whether you're into dark drones or questing for the ultimate pad, ambience or tripped-out cinematic moodgasm, it comes highly recommended." - Sound on Sound  Read the review in full

"Guitarscapes is hard to fault. It's another winner in my book!" - Sound on Sound Click here to read the review in full

"It is when you start to play with the controls that you realise the power of Dronar, particularly when you consider what can be done with automation, or even a simple tweak of the mod wheel." - Future Music

"It will most readily attract the interest of sound designers and music-for-media composers who will love the sonic complexity and variation afforded by so immediate an interface. For producers making dance and pop music who are looking for deep, rich, evolving sounds, it's also well worth a look." - Resident Advisor Read the review in full

 "I bought it, with pleasure, the first day. Have only just scratched the surface, and love it so far! The GUI is excellent, but the proof is in the sounds and how they can be combined, changed, modified, and otherwise tweaked. Congratulations Dronar team!" - T+S Customer, John Tenney

"It's rare to find a hybrid that has warmth. I like the way you utilized the octave range. Certainly helps it sound full out of the box." - Jawad Abu-Lughod

"I´m using it right now. One of the Dark Labyrinth drones. Love it.  It´s a beautiful instrument, and extremely cheap at (intro price) 60 bucks. That´s a no risk price, no matter if you use it once or 50 times.  You can do a ton of cool sound design style stuff with it." - T+S Customer, James Brown

"DRONAR is an amazing library. Lots of magic in this one!  With many other atmospheric and sound generation libraries coming out today, DRONAR adds a new dimension of sonic possibilities that expand the artist palette in ways that no other has so far!" - T+S customer, Bryan Brylow AKA Arpegiator

"Bought and it´s amazing!!! Great GUI and lots of fantastic sounding instruments! Absolutely no brainer! Excellent for the darker side of ambient. First I did not want it to buy because I was a little disappointed with most of these hybrid libraries out there but this one is really amazing. Affordable price by the way :-)" - T+S customer, Andreas Kantner

"DRONAR exceptionally stands out atop all the generic pad instruments out there, worth it for the string-based presets alone. Layering is rich, flexible, and expressive. The interface is smile-inducing and randomize feature inspires creativity. Solid value, very unique AND usable — and I adore that magic sparkle dust!" -T+S customer, Torley

"All in all I would say I like Dronar a lot. It’s fun to play with. It seems to have a never ending supply of presets to explore and it does sound great!" - Beat Mode, Rating: 4.6/5 Read the review in full

"Dronar Hybrid Module is intended that every two months  will contain completely different sounds, until the full Dronar library is complete after more than a year. Existing users Dronar moreover receive a discount at the on purchase of new modules." - Interface

"DRONAR can also automatically produce chords from single or multiple held notes, but the real draw here is the easy layering and manipulating of samples from the soundbank, and the instant assignment of edits to keyswitches." - 8/10 Computer Music

"Dronar provides a low cost multi-layered product full of futuristic sounds and textures primarily for gaming soundtracks. With little effort you can mix sounds, demonstrating how detailed the effects are, or add pulsating rhythmic components sounds to a soundscape. The wide range of ideas - and varied templates in high-quality audio can be used immediately. However, you can dig deeper and create sounds from the sample selection to the drawable arpeggiator itself." - Keys Musik Und Computer

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"Some of the Pads and Arpeggio patches that I’ve got out of this library are amazingly beautiful.[...] Dronar is an incredible library." - UK Composer Ty 

"DRONAR comes with a lot of great drone inspired sounds in different genres and categories. One of my favorite things about DRONAR is the amount of organic movement that can be added to the sounds via the movement dial. You can also arpeggiate each of DRONAR's 3 layers individually, even the fx channel, which makes for some pretty crazy sounds" BAFTA award-winning composer Jesper Kyd.

"The Hybrid Module is a great opening chapter in the DRONAR series. Beautifully put together and flexes within it's own constraints well, with very easy controls and more available if you want them." MusicTech Read the review in full
