The Unfinished FM8 Akheron For Native Instruments FM8 KSD NFM8-HORiZON
HORiZON | November 27, 2014 | 1.54 MB
FM8 Akheron is collection of 150 patches for Native Instruments’ FM8 synthesizer.
Aimed at atmospheric film scoring and deep electronica, FM8 Akheron features crisp, metallic leads; powerful, rattling basslines; evocative, crystalline pads; eerie, atonal landscapes; penetrating, dynamic sequences; and huge, noisy basses.
FM synthesis is often seen as convoluted and unwieldy. And it is. However, in producing FM8 Akheron I have realized it is also beautiful and expansive – and hopefully this new soundset provides sonic territory not yet explored with previous The Unfinished releases.
FM8 Akheron provides a wide sonic palette; from dark shadows to incandescent light. There is a haunting fragility and also a brutal strength. It is equally at home in the blood-curdling terror of a horror soundtrack as it is in the luminescent joy of an ambient project.
FM8 Akheron contains sounds in both NFM8 and KSD format. NFM8 is the most up-to-date version of FM8 and utilizes all its most recent upgrades. Whereas KSD format is from an older version of FM8, but is also usable in NI Kore.
