ABOUT THE SCULPTOR SERIES

SCULPTOR is a series of Kontakt libraries by Gothic Instruments that cover different aspects of sound design (impacts, whooshes, drops and rises), with new sound sets released regularly at a discount to existing customers.

The SCULPTOR mission is to give you world-class raw material, huge customisation by recombining sound fragments and adjusting sound-shaping dials, while keeping it simple and highly expressive.

HOW IT WORKS

Every Whoosh is made up of 3 elements - ATTACK, PEAK and DECAY. These 3 elements are the initial attack, the intense peak of the whoosh and the long release of the sound. This Whoosh Designer instrument quickly crossfades between 3 different sounds in order to produce sonic complexity and a very wide range of possible variations. Download the PDF manual on the right hand side of this page for full details.

The GUI

In summary, the main GUI page allows you to mix and match different sounds, change their volumes, randomise the sounds, change the length of the whoosh, the way it is panned, the pitch, the envelope shapes (sharpness of the attack and decay), filters and send effects (delay and reverb). Here's a little more detail about each feature...

ATTACK, PEAK & DECAY

Easily mix and match different sounds into each of the three slots and control the volume of each sound. The slope controls change the shape of the attack and decay – create a sharp and dramatic effect or a complex complex rich sound – experimentation is the key

DIRECTION

Alter the way a Whoosh is panned with three options – right to left, no pan (for a wide central sound) and left to right. Great for achieving a sense of rapid movement!

PEAK TIME BUTTONS

Synced to your sequencer tempo, choose between fast or slow whooshes. The buttons control the time from when a key is triggered to the peak of the whoosh.

RANDOM

For an endless supply of unique and interesting sounds, the RANDOM button loads a new randomly generated set of sounds into the menu slots on the last-played key – great for instant inspiration.

SOUND SHAPING DIALS

These dials give you a great degree of control over the sound on your last-played MIDI key-pair. Includes Velocity, Filter Cutoff, Filter Q (Resonance), Velocity to Filter Map, Envelope to Filter Map, Tune (Pitch), Decay and Release.

MASTER FX PAGE

This page presents global effects which will affect every sound currently loaded across the whole keyboard. Includes three insert effects (Drive, Compression and Filter) , two send effects (Reverb and Send) and the Gater – a rhythmical noise gate where you can control the Rate, Depth and Width of the sound.

THE SOUNDS

Imagine something very big going past your face very quickly - these sounds add huge energy and excitement to music and percussion!

SCULPTOR Massive Whooshes features thousands of raw sounds recorded and processed by Alessandro Camnasio who has been responsible for the sound design of many Hollywood trailers including Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Resident Evil 6 and Mad Max Fury Road, to name a few. Derived from a variety of organic and synthetic sources including water, rocks, fire, animals, machines and electromagnetic noise, these raw sounds can be arranged in millions of combinations making Massive Whooshes an inexhaustible tool that will remain a permanent fixture in your sound design armoury.

The 134 included presets have been designed for speed and convenience and are organised into 8 master folders (Clean, Detuned, Extreme, Gated, High Speed, Reverse Stops, Special FX, Velocity Control) to help you quickly find what you need.

Of the sound creation, Alessandro says... "As you can imagine by listening to the sounds, the Doppler effect was of paramount importance for adding a sense of speed and realism to this library. Apart from that, granular synthesis and re-synthesis are some of my favourite techniques to create interesting sonic textures and take the original recordings to a whole new level, while preserving the "organic" quality. I also experiment a lot with complex effects chains and signal routing, to enhance a sound or completely mangle it. Convolution and morphing are other techniques that were useful to twist the sounds in exotic and unpredictable ways. Once I am happy with a sound, I finalise it by tuning a mastering chain that includes different compressors, enhancers and limiters that I activate and change on a case by case basis.
