  1. They’re using the name of a recently deceased musician to sell a sound library that he had nothing to do with? Seems shady.

  2. This is sound design at its best. A labour of love in honor of one of the greatest synthesist of our time! ‘They’ is Luftrum, a highly talented danish sound designer. I am deeply impressed and inspired by this tribute. Thanks Søren.

  3. Great work! Some of this is really dead on.

    it’s kind of amazing that this can all be done within one instrument now, when Vangelis had access to all the greatest synths of the day when he created his music.

  4. Its a very accurate library for sure. It mainly makes sense to me if you want to perform some of his works as a classical exercise, to preserve them. That makes it less of a copycat venture. Its a cousin to hearing student orchestras perform pieces by Yes or Kit Watkins. I’m sure a lot of us can play a few Vangelis lines, as well as a few Emerson or T-Dream cameo moments.

    1. I am still running Atmosphere on my old Dell laptop running XP lol!
      TBF, I do have the newer versions as well on my Macs.

  5. I have to admit that Vujadejunky makes a good point about wanting to hear NEW music with these sounds. To many people, Vangelis is an unknown, so they’d just hear music featuring lush power-sounds without thinking of “Blade Runner” or “China.” Due to fanboy bias, my opinion loses 10% off the top. 😛

    1. I don’t get all the love or worship folks layer onto any kind of artists; it’s like a contest you only win when you’re dead and gone – and a lot of reverb.
