Put The Sound Of Real Soundscapes In Your Pads And Soundscapes

Soniccouture have announced a new virtual instrument: Geosonics. A collaboration with award-winning field recordist Chris Watson, Geosonics delves deep into Watson's vast archives to form a library of rare sonic artefacts that cannot be found anywhere else. Soniccouture tell us that, using this unique collection of audio as a starting point, they created additional sound design material ; waves and sampled textures which, when layered and combined with Watson's original recordings create playable, musically useful soundscapes and pads.

Watson's recordings are divided into four categories : Ice & Water, Wind, Wires and Swamps. Recorded in locations as diverse as the North Pole, the Kalahari desert, the Australian outback and madagascan swamps. The Geosonics instruments follow the same categories, with over 400 Kontakt presets in total.
