Every virtue has its vice, and every yin its yang. Music production should reflect this universal truth, according to J. Scott G. (formerly of Deepsky) and MIDIhead. Together they’ve produced a new patch library for Omnisphere 2 called “Fire Water.” In it you’ll find ripping synth basses, powerful and funky leads, lush pads, ethereal and epic poly synths, interesting fx and textures, vocoder sound bites, and BPM-locked movers.
As the name suggests, every patch ranges from overtly aggressive to warm and serene. Fire Water is a professional producer’s toolbox of sounds that will help you construct any type of modern electronic music, such as Drum and Bass, Trap, Hip-Hop, Pop, EDM and even Film Score. Fire Water will take you from dark to light moods in a split second, and yield infinite options for blending them in new and unusual ways.
“There is a yin-yang balance and contrast with the sounds I use in composing electronic music. It’s a painting that requires a diverse palette of sounds. For example, I may want to begin my piece with a serene intro and build to an intense climax, or I may layer a dirty bass line with a soft poly synth and lush pad. Fire Water gives you that palette. It allows you to achieve that ebb and flow in a feng shui kind of way,” says MIDIhead.
J. Scott G. adds, “I love sounds that have a specific, but unconventional playability. For example, many of the distorted bass sounds I created are mono synths with massive amounts of portamento time. That allows me to bypass the pitch wheel and play bending notes with one hand while controlling the sonic texture via the modulation wheel with my other hand, all in real time.” Fire Water loads quickly and easily into Omnisphere 2.1 or higher. Each sound is optimized for use with your modulation wheel for real-time control on stage or in the studio. Use The Orb for unexpected surprises!
