Esper Synth - Bladerunner Inspired Synth Sounds

Bladerunner Inspired

Bladerunner is a film which any self respecting film buff will tell you is a masterpiece due to many factors including the mesmerizing synth score by mastermind composer Vangelis.  As composers, we’ve all sought the perfect recreation of the lead sound which defined this score, well look no further, the brass lead which permeates the Bladerunner score has been UnEarthed!

This isn’t a synth recreation, or samples taken from the soundtrack.  Esper Synth is sampled directly from patches painstakingly re-created on an actual CS 80 synth which is, in essence, the sound of Bladerunner.  The brass leads are the highlight of the library and are extremely playable out of the box.  No knob turning, no digging for the perfect reverb, just load and play. EVERYTHING heard in the demos below is from Esper Synth, even the percussion.

There are 5 versions of “the” brassy lead sound, 4 pads, 2 bell instruments, and even a HUGE offworld percussion section (inspired by the bladerunner main title cue) with reverb baked in.  12 patches in total.   This library is wonderful for Bladerunner fans or your next scifi score.  Curious just how close we got in this re-creation experiment?  Just check out the demos to the right!  Everything heard is from Esper Synth.

Front Controls

In most cases, the volume of each patch is mapped directly to the modwheel for easy dynamic control (so remember to tweak the modwheel if you’re not hearing anything!).  The Noir Sci-fi styled GUI contains controls for LOW, MID, and HI EQ as well as attack / release sliders, a reverb / space control knob, and a button to turn the patch from poly to monophonic if you’re after authenticity.

    Rapport /qualité/prix/installation facile,
    je travaille dans l’industrie du cinéma /compositeur/producteur/ingénieur du son. J’achète plusieurs produits chaque mois. Quand il me faut un VST/un son/ un plug-in, c’est immédiatement. Internet permet cela et je télécharge souvent mes achats par le downloader PULSE.
    Merci !
