Arca - Interdimensional Strings Suite inspired by sci-fi and ancient cultures

Dark and ancient string textures captured at MNTRA’s legendary Montreal RCA Victor studio. Creatively processed and warped to offer a wide range of expressive otherworldly sounds; from dystopian clusters to dark & ethereal textures.

Includes 50 presets sculpted by MNTRA’s award-winning sound designers, 35 instrument sample maps, and intuitive animated 3-axis controls. Powered by the MNDALA engine.

Driven by MNTRA’s love of both classic sci-fi worlds and ancient cultures, they crafted Arca to be a hybrid sound design tool unlike no other. Blend an 1820s Baroque Cello with supernatural granular shimmers, Mongolian Morin Khuur with radioactive saturation, Nyckelharpa with spaced-out glitches, and much more… Arca gives you the power to create immersive sound worlds yet to be discovered.

Taking full advantage of the powerful sound design capabilities of the MNDALA engine, these unusual sources have been artfully sculpted by MNTRA’s award-winning team to offer a wide variety of uniquely expressive sounds.

Arca is built around MNTRA’s powerful 3-axis control system represented by a custom Perform view animation created for seamless intuitive live expression. Each preset is a unique performable instrument unto itself to be learned and explored.

MNTRA simplified the manipulation of these sound-shaping parameters by creating global controls that are assignable to any MIDI sliders, knobs, or controllers. Map the controls once and you are ready to go without having to re-map them for each new MNDALA instance.

In addition to the curated sound worlds MNTRA created within Arca’s many presets, you can easily sculpt your own sonic landscapes using MNDALA’s powerful non-linear Sound Design environment.
