Pulsesetter Sounds





A new kind of ensemble: Ensembles are complex instruments that by combining loops, multisample guitars, pads, sequences and other elements, let you perform in a very organic way several layers of music at the same time. They are very useful for film composers and let you perform and quickly compose a full scene. They also work as a starting point when writing sketches or building a unique palette. The possibilities are endless. Natural and unnatural solo instruments: We included several multisample guitars and other string instruments, plus their alter egos, which are hybrid Frankensteins that work great for writing modern film music. As we usually do at Pulsesetter, we tried to tweak even the natural versions by sampling them in unusual ways. This includes sampling an acoustic guitar by mostly playing open strings or slapping an electric bass with different kind of sticks. Add life to your score by using shimmers: The shimmers are various fast arpeggios and tremolos combos that will add movement, air and expression to any kind of score, from an intimate piano song, to a big sweeping orchestral scene. We included several acoustic versions, as well as processed versions, to match any style. You can also mix and match your own combos. Live pulses We included several kinds of pulses and loops that will match many different styles. In addition to hundreds of pulses, we included “playable” versions of these, where you can play chords or combine loops in different keys. This allows for a very organic way of using loops. Plus, we included a Pulse Designer that lets you combine most loops, which you can perform in one pass. Beautiful and terrifying pads and ambiences We included more than a hundred customizable pads that you can also mix and match in pairs, plus a powerful FX sequencer that lets you customize them and make them unique to you

Guitar Tools

Crazy Tools and FXs Here we added a number of different instruments that didn’t fit any other category, like infinite raisers and downers, guitar impacts and scrapes, chords, a feedback machine and others. Robust sequencing Besides being able to sequence all the FXs available in our FX GUI, you can take advantage of our powerful quad sequencer that will let you work with four independent lines, and combine note sequencers and arpeggiators in a very intuitive and musical way.

Kontakt Guitar Heaven

By taking advantage of the newer Kontakt guitar FXs, we were able to build very organic instruments, combining new Kontakt FXs with our own “baked” versions using our guitar and synth rigs. For example, by using our Muted Metal Guitar Combo you can play very convincing heavy grooves without the need of external effects or external guitar software. We had so much fun with this, that decided to include a whole set of metal sequences.

“Dystopian Guitars is a great and inspirational library. I started writing music the minute I tried it. I have high expectations from guitar libraries, as I am a guitar player myself, and found Dystopian Guitars to be very practical and usable right out of the box. Highly recommended!”

“I am a huge ambient guitar fan and Dystopian Guitars has given me a unique and playable library of pulses, pads and soundscapes that sound like no other. I have used them in everything from score in TV and film to song production. I continue to find creative inspiration in everything Pulsesetter Sounds makes!”

“Pulsesetters Dystopian, like all their libraries, is made by composers for composers. And it shows. The sounds are top notch but most importantly they each carry emotion and really help tell a story, even by themselves. That’s a rare thing in sample libraries. But they also partner incredibly well with orchestra and other layers, making easy and tasteful work of building or sustaining tension and pace. Among the plethora of libraries out there in the sample world, Dystopian is fresh and original, and far beyond anything I’ve encountered in this genre. Much more than just a toolbox.”
