OUT NOW: Kyma Ambiences vol.2

Kyma Ambiences vol.2 contains 100 abstract and evolving ambiences created with our beloved Kyma sound design workstation.
Due to the increasing demand of spatialized content for game and VR/AR project, this inspiring collection has been entirely designed as a spherical representation of sound natively in 3rd Order Ambisonics by generating all the Sounds in Kyma and mastering them in Pro Tools through a custom analog setup.

Create a truly immersive and dystopian atmosphere with the 2nd volume of the classic Kyma Ambiences sound effects library.

Kyma Ambisonic Toolkit

NeverEngine Labs presents KAT, the first realtime #Ambisonic synthesis library for the Kyma sound design language - it's been a pleasure working with Cristian Vogel and Anders Tveit on the toolkit development!

What is Ambisonics? 


Ambisonics is a method for recording, mixing and playing back a 360-degree sphere of sound coming from different directions around a center point. This center point is where the listener’s sweet spot is located while playing back. Ambisonics can create a smooth, stable and continuous sphere of sound, complete with elevation, where sounds are easily represented as coming from above, below, in front or behind the user. Ambisonics is “speaker-agnostic.” It can be decoded to any speaker array or headphones, without being restricted by the limitations of any specific playback system.

OUT NOW: Imagined Spaces – IR Library

A creative collection of carefully synthesised Impulse Responses.

I'm proud to present Imagined Spaces, a new REmatrix library, the result of an extensive research in collaboration with MoReVox and Overloud. Imagined Spaces blurs the line between filtering and reverberation. Sound designers, sound editors, mixing engineers, composers and anyone who paints with sound will enjoy the surprising stuff included in the library, from strange but realistic locations to alien and odd ones.
Lots of IRs have been developed in Kyma sound design environment with synthesis/processing algorithms in the frequency and time domain, like waveshaping, frequency and time scaling, iterative convolution (spectra recombination of different IRs), among the others.
To create reverbs rich in diffuse field, white and pink noise has been treated with radical equalisation curves. Subsequently, Pro Tools has been abused for pitch and time alteration, dynamic filtering or capturing the sonic characteristics of custom plug-in chains to obtain eccentric ambiences with extremely different durations.
Imagined Spaces is conceived as a key tool not only to “paint" your tracks with air, depth and new perspectives, but also to expand and transform the original material into new ones.
With this advanced sound design collection, you can add life to dry and poor sample or original recordings. If you’re looking for tactile effects, Imagined Spaces is the spark you need to boost your imagination: you’ll easily get a density never obtained before with classic convolution and algorithm reverbs.
