THE PLANETARY LINE

Power meets simplicity.

Each MOON functions as a mute button. Useful for programming & tweaking sounds. ⌘ (or ctrl) + click = Solo. ____________________________________ ARROWS swap Orbit positions in the playback sequence.
SOUND SELECTOR MENU: Choose and select any one of the 101 sounds available for each Orbit.
CLONE duplicates the settings of Orbit No. 1 (furthest left) and applies it to the other three Orbits. This makes for the most stable sound possible, which is sometimes desired.
RANDOM assigns random sound-sources to all four Orbits, without changing any other settings. A surprisingly useful starting point for creating your own sounds. ____________________________________ HOTKEY: ⌘ (or ctrl) + click will also randomize the primary ORBIT Controls, but in a semi-intelligent way.
WAVES moves all four Orbits to the previous / next soundsource in the soundsource list. This is useful when you want some of the sounds to match, but want to quickly audition new sounds.
Changes the effect of the CLONE and RANDOM buttons. Do you want to affect all the channel parameters, or just the sample selection?
Automatically quantizes your playing, so you can hear perfect pulses without recording to your DAW and quantizing manually.
This is our pretty logo. It doesn't currently have any functionality in the instrument... but we have some things in mind.
ORBIT CONTROLS: Use Gain, Pan, Tune, Cut & Resonance to refine your sound. ____________________________________ HOTKEY: Hold ALT while adjusting a knob to relatively adjust the parameter across all four Orbits.
PULSE Mode: Each orbit starts at full volume before beginning the next - using a sawtooth LFO.
CHOP Mode: Create rhythmic slices of sound using a pulse-wave LFO.
FLOW Mode: Crossfades between Orbits - the perfect tool for creating pads & smooth evolving soundscapes.
FILTER MENU: Lets you select filter type for each Orbit: Lowpass, Bandpass or Highpass. There is an additional Global Lowpass on the Effects Rack page.
RATE: Sets the amount of time for each Orbit rotation, clocked to your DAW
DEPTH: Sets the amount (the depth) of the pulse fed to each Orbit.
PUNCH: determines how punchy the Pulse is. In Chop Mode, this parameter is called GATE.
ATTACK & RELEASE adjust the attack & release time of ORBIT's main volume envelope.
Point to each of the controls to see their function.


ORBITAL SYNTHESIS

The Orbital Synthesis engine morphs between four creative sound sources to create amazing tonal pulses, edgy hybrid rhythms, and dreamy atmospheric beds, all evolving infinitely over time.


TRIPLE ENGINE DESIGN

At the heart of ORBIT and ECLIPSE lie three distinct rhythmic engines.

  • Create modern percussive elements with Pulse Mode
  • Craft an electronic or stuttered style with Chop Mode
  • Produce unique pads and textures with Flow Mode

You can even morph between the modes seamlessly and in-time, using the sequencer.

Powered by Kontakt

Wide Blue Sound products are powered by Kontakt or free Kontakt Player 5.5.2+

We use an industry-leading merchant system that accepts as many currencies as possible. We never receive your payment info (nor would we want to!), just a receipt. Our cloud servers are immediately notified to send you a download email, which will get you up-and-running with your Wide Blue Sound product in a few short minutes.

We also make sure you can respond to any email you receive from us and receive a personal response in return. Many customers have told us we have the best customer service in the entire industry, which is something we take pride in.

To protect the investments of our customers – and our own – we have implemented a leading third-party watermarking system that embeds unique information into each downloaded copy. We know you would never steal from us, but to those who might consider it:

please don’t consider it. It isn’t cool, nor particularly safe, to interfere with space exploration.

Requires Kontakt or Kontakt Player 5.5.1, PC or Mac

In their compressed states, ORBIT is a 900 MB download, ECLIPSE is 600 MB.

Wide Blue Sound products run inside Kontakt, a powerful engine that runs on Windows and Mac machines. Kontakt can run either in standalone (e.g. outside a DAW) or in any DAW that supports standard plug-in formats: VST, AU, RTAS and AAX.

If you aren’t sure what you DAW supports, feel free to ask us or refer to your DAW’s documentation.

If you’re using an older OS, please make sure it’s compatible with the proper version of Kontakt.

Simply put, ORBIT is a bit more versatile but is generally a “nicer” sound. ECLIPSE is more aggressive and badass. Most people take advantage of the bundle but there’s nothing wrong with just picking one to start. If you have any other questions feel free to email us on the Contact page.
