“I can’t remember a synth where I’ve had so much fun”


THE PLANETARY LINE

A new kind of musical instrument for Kontakt, ORBIT and ECLIPSE are designed for quickly creating stunning synths, pulses and atmospheric textures. With a critically-acclaimed interface, you can create rich, deep results in the blink of an eye.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is our pretty logo. It doesn't currently have any functionality in the instrument... but we have some things in mind.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Point to each of the controls to see their function.


ORBITAL SYNTHESIS

The Orbital Synthesis engine morphs between four creative soundsources to create amazing tonal pulses, edgy hybrid rhythms, and dreamy atmospheric beds, all of which infinitely evolve over time.


TRIPLE ENGINE DESIGN

At the heart of ORBIT and ECLIPSE lay three distinct rhythmic engines. Turn on Pulse Mode to create modern percussive elements, Chop Mode for an electronic/stuttered style, and Flow Mode for pads and textures as you’ve never heard them before. You can even morph between the modes seamlessly and in-time, using the sequencer.



LIGHT AND SHADOW.
ORBIT AND ECLIPSE.

VERSATILE AND INSPIRING

ORBIT is designed for quickly creating stunning cinematic synths and atmospheric textures. Whether you want dreamy, mysterious, or dark, you will find a universe of sound in ORBIT.

Watch a speedy walkthrough of the engine that powers ORBIT and ECLIPSE:



These demos are 100% ORBIT, except drums and where noted. You will find most of these sounds in Orbit’s generous patch library.

DARKNESS HAS A NEW NAME

ECLIPSE pioneers new sonic territory with sound that is MASSIVE: heavy, forceful and aggressive. Custom-tailored sound sources, FX, filters and 250 presets make a sound creation station for EPIC modern sound.

SOUND-SHAPING NIRVANA

The Effects Page sculpts your sound with delays, multiple modulations, diverse distortions, and a special convolution engine that that includes several practical creative impulses, and beautiful reverbs from world-class hardware units commonly used in cinematic production.

  2. Eclipse-02-Effects-crop

ORBIT and ECLIPSE have 4 independent sequencers that modulate 24 useful parameters to further the creation of interesting, musical, and evolving sounds. Each sequencer has its own time base and extends up to 64 steps. Automatically generate new patterns, or process what’s there in dozens of ways. Then play it Forward, Reverse, both, even random. Beautiful sequences are only a click away.
