The Sound Of Atmospheric Pressure


Atmospheric Pressure by 9 Soundware is a set of instruments for the EXS24 sampler within Apple Logic Pro. The theme of the sound set is atmospheric pressure, which 9 Soundware tell us is portrayed as sounds of wind-like ambience, undersea activity, various air masses, crashing implosions, and ear-tearing altitude shift.
The instruments are based on 50 samples (30 loops, 16 one-shot events, and 4 hits). The source sounds for the samples include underwater recordings, noise, and performed effects processing. The samples, 1 to 28 seconds in length, include organic noise-based textures, synthetic loops, crescendoing one-shot events, and sustaining impacts.
In addition to the 174 MB AtmosphericPressure.exs instrument which uses all 50 samples, included are 20 instruments which make extensive use of the modulation capabilities of the EXS24 mkII sampler. Among them are tempo synced instruments, free-form textural instruments, impact instruments, as well as ambience instruments that can trigger contrasting samples using MIDI message cc#1 (Ear-tearing Shift.exs), and tuned noise instruments (Torr.exs). Many are designed to be played primarily with the modulation and pitch bend wheels (and less so with the keys). As they lend themselves more to performance than step sequencing, a midi controller is highly recommended when using this sound set.
The 175 MB download includes 21 .EXS files and 50 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).
