Music Software Review: Zapzorn SOLSTICE: Blue

Meena Shamaly took a look at “SOLSTICE: Blue” – the new synth/soundscape pad library for Kontakt by Zapzorn.

ZapZorn SOLSTICE:Blue is a one-of-a-kind sound design tonal pad and atonal soundscape creation machine for Kontakt. SOLSTICE:Blue takes 24 unique core sounds and expands them without limits by adding 24 X and 24 Y sound variables to create a totally new sound creation experience. With randomized convolution reverbs (SPACE), Chorus, Flanger and Phasers (ORBIT), delay (ECHO) and multiple distortions (DIRT) – SOLSTICE:Blue takes those sounds and morphs them into expandable, non-repeatable looped sounds. With a full ADSR envelope and randomized LFO and Filters, SOLSTICE:Blue takes those sounds one step further. Finally, adding the red master randomizer button (?), SOLSTICE:Blue is one click away from creating a sound that only you have.”

Their own plethora of well crafted presets aside, even Zapzorn don’t know what sounds you’re going to end up with when using SOLSTICE: Blue – and that’s the very power of this library and sound design tool.
