Zero-G Releases Outer Limits Kompakt Virtual Instrument

ian boddy's outer limitsOuter Limits is a new ZERO-G/XFONIC virtual instrument powered by Native Instruments Kompakt.

It features a four gigabyte core library of more than five hundred unique soundscapes. It is described as a “journey through dreams and nightmares, full of sounds beyond your imagination.”

Outer Limits is Ian Boddy’s follow-up to his Morphology Kompakt instrument. The sounds this instrument is capable range from shimmering pads, to mysterious drones, crystalline digital manipulations to dark distorted atmospheres, menacing mechanisms, evocative resonances, surreal sound effects, complex cascades, formant sheens, dark disturbing horror, analogue waves, amazing space textures, strange vocal synthesis and of course, sounds from the Outer Limits of space and time. Eight sounds can be layered to create incredibly complex soundscapes.

Categories include Ambient Loops, Analogue Waves, Chamber of Horrors, Click & Glitch, Deep Space, Dense Soundscapes, Digital Drones, Digital Manipulations, Distorted Views, Heavy Drones, Machine Dreams, Minimalism, One Shot Synth FX, Outer Limits, Surreal to Real, Transcendental, Twisted Pads, Vintage Synth Atmos, Vocal Transformations and White Noise Atmospheres.

The whole library is presented within NI’s Kompakt Instrument sampler interface, which makes no compromises in the playing and performing of sample-based instruments. Powerful multi-mode filters, envelopes, and LFOs give this library enormous flexibility and a wealth of creative possibilities. The integrated high-quality reverb, chorus, and delay effects can give each sample life and depth.

Ian Boddy is one of the UK’s most celebrated synthesists, and a veteran of the European electronic music scene since the late 1970s. Ian’s exclusive arsenal of vintage and modern synths and software plug-ins have been extensively plundered together with cutting edge sonic manipulations and the audio mangling of “real” environmental sounds to create the unique and inspiring new library that you will find within this powerful virtual instrument.
