Composers and now developers, Jeff Rona and Nathan Rightnour have teamed up to found Wide Blue Sound, and have recently unleashed their company’s first brainchild unto the world of music creation: ORBIT. Developed for Native Instruments’ Kontakt, ORBIT is a new take on rich synthesised textures, pulses, pads, and atmospheric sounds, driven by its “orbital synthesis” engine. It’s been positively received since its release by composers and musicians at all levels of the field.
Jeff and Nathan kindly took the time to speak to us about creating Wide Blue Sound and developing ORBIT. They discuss their history of working together, why they created ORBIT, and the importance of innovation and inspiration in both its development and its use by composers. Check out the full interview in our video below.
