Plughugger has introduced Lumos, an ‘ambient orchestra of sounds’ for Omnisphere, based on the sounds of lamps, ‘from mellow 40 watt lightbulbs all the way up to illuminating 200 watt’.
Here’s what they have to say about Lumos:
“When Spectrasonics created the Psychoacoustic section of samples in Omnisphere they didn’t hold back burning up a piano just to hear how that might sound, or the glassy sound of tungsten lightbulbs being hit with different intensities.
Equipped with the sound of a handful of lamps, our goal was to explore these sounds by turning them into sequences, textures / soundscapes, synth(ish) leads and pads.
Lumos is a soundset in two parts. The first part is all the sounds based on the sound of lamps. The second part is a re-imagining of our favourite sounds, but using bell-like FM tones based on the internal synth engine.”
