Love From Our Artists
I tend to shy away from ‘out of the box’ synth instruments because of the consistency of sound they provide, instead opting for the far more labor-intensive process of making my own. Yet Orbit has immediately impressed me with the way it can vary the sound you’re working with, to create something that’s very likely proprietary to what you’re working on. That is enormously exciting because it’s also very easy to use. Consider me an instant fan.
Instant amazing sounds
It’s musical, moody, cool, and every preset is immediately usable. Instant amazing sounds…
Distinctive and inspirational…
As a film composer, I am always searching for distinctive and inspirational sounds – well, I just bumped in to Orbit. With an intuitive graphical user interface and the ability to manipulate sounds beyond recognition, Orbit is truly an inspirational synth and one that will slide in to, and complement, my scoring template.
The synths sound incredible. They will definitely get some mileage in the studio.
Gorgeous and meaningful…
Orbit is one of those easily manipulative tools that fills a gap in the composer’s arsenal. The moods are gorgeous and meaningful to the storytelling of music in any medium. From very subtle shifts in timbre to a full on assault, I’m looking forward to digging in more.
Part of a new breed…
I found Orbit easy to use and instantly inspiring. It is part of a new breed of instruments, which make production derived techniques (looping and layering) available for realtime creative exploration. Loads of fun!
The ambiences are beautifully rich, evolving in ways that are versatile and extremely useful to the modern film composer. Orbit’s full library includes strong sound sources and a nice interface with impressive presets that are extremely tweak able.
This is my kind of instrument – instant gratification with a clean, straightforward interface that allows you to make any patch your own with a few quick adjustments.
Inviting and immediately usable
Orbit’s sonic possibilities are extremely inviting and immediately usable. I can’t wait to incorporate it into my next score. Well done!
Unique, interesting, and a great resource
As I find myself doing more synth-based scores - which I really enjoy - I've expanded my sonic library to include more new and interesting sounds. ORBIT and ECLIPSE are fantastic tools for me. Their musical approach and interface is unique, interesting, and a great resource for someone who likes to experiment and mess with sound like I do.
Within 10 minutes of playing around with Orbit I was using it in a film score. I really like software I can start using without looking at the manual, and then when I do Orbit reveals what's it really capable of. As someone who likes to us evolving textures Orbit has already found a place in my go-to plugins.
Killer Synth! I’ll be using it on this movie I’m doing for sure. Nice work!!!
Used it right away
I like Orbit quite a bit, and unlike many of the Kontakt libraries I’ve bought over the years, the sounds are not ‘too much’ right out of the box. So many libraries are full of those patches that sound like a whole piece of music when you hit one key, but I’m looking for things that can integrate well with the other sounds I create, and Orbit fits that bill nicely. I used it right away on my latest project, a six-hour miniseries version of Childhood’s End on SyFy, and a couple of things made it to the final mix unchanged and unedited. It’s a nice addition to my collection and the price was right
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
one-of-a-kind pads and textures with Flow Mode
You can even morph between the modes seamlessly and in-time, using the sequencer.
A Sound-Shaping Nirvana
The effects page effortlessly sculpts your sound with delays, multiple modulations, diverse distortions. It also showcases a special convolution engine that that includes both practical creative impulses and beautiful reverbs from world-class hardware units that are commonly used in cinematic production.
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 playback rate and extends up to 64 steps.
Automatically generate new patterns, or process what’s already there in dozens of innovative ways. Then play it forward, reverse, both, or even random. Beautiful sequences are only a click away.
“It’s a no-brainer..
a veritable secret weapon.”
Vast, Surreal, Brilliant
Apex adds a sense of awe to any production. Inspired by electronic cinematic masters Tycho, Ulrich Schnauss, Jon Hopkins, and Boards of Canada, we've brought you vibrant pads, emotional leads, and provocative pulses to inspire emotion for your listeners. 80 Patches.

Eclipse's ferocious might is amplified further by Aeterna, ideal for action, drama and trailers. Fiery leads, aggressive sequences, and colossal moments inject energy to your compositions. Provide unrelenting tension and abstraction with Aeterna. 80 patches.
