Some of you might not recognize his name, but the chances are you're more than familiar with his work already, especially if you use Alchemy. His "sounds" can be found on albums and movies, one of the most recent being 50 Shades of Grey, for which he designed synth presets for Danny Elfman, that can be heard in the original movie score.
Lunaris is..as he says on his site.. "..a 5GB Kontakt based pad instrument that containing classic analog pads to warm shimmering pads, cinematic string pads, lush ambient pads and any pad in between." Basically Pad heaven.
He said over on KVR it will come with presets by not only himself, but with work from the likes of Arksun, Bigtone, Himalaya..and Brandon Clark to name but a few. Sorry if this post is reading like a promo puff piece.it's not meant to be. I'm just really excited about this and wanted to let anyone who might be interested on here know about if, if by chance they didn't already know.
Even though this is a Kontakt based pad instrument, you won't need the full version to use it..it will run unrestricted in the free Kontakt player..meaning there won't be the usual 15 minute limit that is often the case.
It goes on sale later this month on his site..and I'm sure other outlets, too..for $159, but he will be offering it initially at a discounted intro price when it's first released.
In the meantime, if you're as interested in this as I am, then search for it over on YouTube..he already has a few videos up about it, that go into detail about what it can do..which is pretty cool. Basically..and I really do mean this..if pads are your thing, then I think this will take care of them for you for a long time to come.
Not sure I had a Luftrum pack, but I know his work a bit. BigTone's pack on Alchemy was massive. I'm sure this will be a stellar instrument.
Yeah, like I said, I'm pretty stoked about this one..I think this will be "best release of the year" for Kontakt..there's a lot gone into this puppy..should really be good. I know I'll get a load of use out of it from the get-go..extra handy for ambient track beds.
As for if you have a Luftrum pack..48 of his presets are included in the Factory bank that came with it..so, yeah, guess you have his stuff then.
