It’s all right. Virtual instrument and sample library-maker ILIO has announced EDM Eclipse: Solar. This collection of 130 new patches for Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere is the counterpart and contrast to ILIO’s sister collection EDM Eclipse: Lunar.
As described by its creators, Solar is
“geared for adrenalin-inducing power using hard-hitting synths, sick basses, leads, pads, SFX, and a variety of tempo-locked sonic goodies… [with] roughed up … edges, added some funk, and even included some triplet-timed, tempo-synced groove monsters.”
EDM Eclipse: Solar exploits the capabilities of the modulation wheel to allow users rapid sound-altering control. Many patches are also optimized for use with The Orb, giving the user/performer even more real-time control, on the stage or in the studio.
EDM Eclipse: Solar Patches Include:
- 49 Arp + Rhythm sounds including 16 Bass, 1 Lead, and 32 Synths
- 1 Keyboard (ethereal piano)
- 3 Pads and synth strings
- 15 Synth basses
- 4 SFX and Noise risers
- 8 Monophonic leads
- 48 Polyphonic synth sounds
- 2 Textures
