Sonora Cinematic Harmonic Bloom for the free Kontakt Player 7 exploits the concept of the harmonic series to turn noise into unique and distinctive musical material that can be used in your compositions.
From calm and reflective organic soundscapes to dark and imposing mechanical pads and textures, Harmonic Bloom offers an awe-inspiring array of sound design possibilities – and that’s just with the built-in noises and sound sources!
Import your own samples into the easy to use interface to craft rich, complex and captivating instruments like no other.
rom calm and reflective organic soundscapes to dark and imposing mechanical pads and textures, Harmonic Bloom offers an awe-inspiring array of sound design possibilities – and that’s just with the built-in noises and sound sources! Import your own samples into the easy to use interface to craft rich, complex and captivating instruments like no other.
Drag and drop any “noisy” sample into the GUI or choose from one of the 30 included flavours of noise and simply start extracting harmonics from these chaotic waveforms to obtain a musical pitch.
That’s just the beginning… use the plethora of built-in LFOs to independently modulate the panning, volume and filters of each single harmonic. Creating lush, evolving soundscapes is as easy as turning just a few knobs!
The noise is only half the story of this incredible tool. Add a second layer from a curated selection of deep sampled sound sources ranging from rare instruments to classic analog synths, guitars to reamped acoustic instruments and more.
Ever wondered how a French horn played through an electric guitar tube amp sounds like? How about a classic analog synth from the ‘60s passed on cassette and through a granular processor? With Harmonic Bloom there are numerous combinations with which to explore and experiment. Check out the video below to experience some of the sounds…
Whether you want to achieve a heavenly, ethereal and delicate soundscape, powerful, ominous and disturbing textures, or just looking for something to inspire a new piece of music, Harmonic Bloom is a spectacular sound design playground.
“I produced Harmonic Bloom to make available to everybody what I like to call a ‘creative sound design environment’ – a playground that will allow composers and sound designers to make sounds that are completely unique and different from what’s out there.
Using filters with high resonance values tuned to specific frequencies is something I have done for my own projects numerous times – it’s an incredible way to extract pitches out of noise. This tool makes the process easy and creative… and it comes with a plethora of amazing sound sources that we collated for the occasion! My real hope though is that users will utilise it as a device to transform their own samples into playable instruments, creating their own personal palette of sounds like no other.” – Alessandro Mastroianni, Sonora Cinematic
