Welcome to the Northern Lights Pad Machine. The most complex and creative pad instrument ever made. Create your own paths of beauty from diffuse, soft and glowing masses to fierce, metal, frozen deep, gloomy and cold solitude.
Zero-G Northern Lights Pad Machine is a multilayered Kontakt instrument containing almost 6GB of brand-new audio content and giving you more than 970 original and unique sounds. Multi-layered patches utilizing every possible and impossible sound source. From rare modular synthesizers to metal and sounds from the Norwegian natural environment. All with one thing in mind – to create the most amazing pad sounds ever made!
Whether you are a soundtrack or pop composer, noise artist, experimental musician or just a hobby musician you will find something truly inspiring in this mammoth of a library.
Each instrument consists of at least 4 layers, and the 6 controls of the instruments provides you with an unprecedented creative way to morph between textures, colors and moods. The interface makes you work in an intuitive way, using your ears, not your eyes and analytics. Dial in thousands of unique textures in an instant.

Try to experiment with your playing technique. Fast touches versus holding long notes gives different results. A great deal of the patches respond creatively with the way you play, so make sure you try it out.
The usability concept (which GUI controls etc.)
The patches are individually mapped to the GUI, so there were no set rules before doing the sound design and using the engine in Kontakt. All sounds use what suits the individual sound best creating a vastly better user experience and result.
Each of the 4 controls continuously morph between dozens of settings in Kontakt, both controller messages and effects. Dials are carefully set up so they relate to each other and interpolate, so that you can be creative and hands on in your own sound design. Easy and fun.
