Orchestral Dust



Orchestral Dust for Kontakt 5.8.1+ (Full)

Orchestral Dust is a dual voice ROMpler aimed at orchestral pad and under-score sounds. Orchestral Dust V1.5 features a brand new , expanded and simplified interface, and the latest version of our innovative granular engine AGRA, especially tweaked for the sounds included in this library. Orchestral Dust offers a new approach to generating sounds using granular synthesis and produces some truly different and unique sounds, but always in the “orchestral” area.

Orchestral Dust features 12 different multisampled orchestral instruments – and each has a set of articulations and ensemble sizes.

Orchestral Dust allows you independent control over the grain playback for each voice. You can select gain(volume), audio file position and pitch of each grain, and within each of these you can set up your own loops for modulating and evolving sounds.

Orchestral Dust also includes many “classic” synthesis controls, like Attack, Release and filters, V1.5 includes a streamlined approach to the granular engine, using a set of simplified granular engine controls, that allow you to get to interesting and controlled sounds very very quickly. All of this add up to the ability to create unique evolving lively sounds for your orchestral underscore.


Alongside these features Orchestral Dust has a powerful set of effects: 4 in-line effects slots per voice, where you can select from 20 different effects to use in each slot..

There’s a send effects rack (with 4 different slots), with 6 send effects to select from in each slot.

There’s our innovative and powerful tempo-based gating system that extends the normal trance-gate approach (which is volume-based) to add additional gating effects using things like different filter types and distortion effects.

We included our innovative scene controls too – you set three “Scenes” or key frames for volume, pan and pitch in each voice and use the mix control to morph between them. We’ve enhanced this with our “walk” control. Turn this on and the instrument will walk around between random places in the 3 scenes – giving you ever changing non-repeating output. We even added our Drift Engine for subtle pitch drifting.

Orchestral Dust comes with over 60 snapshots.
