Dark Piano Antarctica is the fourth in a series of Libraries that has been designed to provide an expansive range of dark and suspenseful Textures whilst providing controls to allow the Composer to easily invent unique sounds.

The samples comprise a collection of Metal Hits, Scrapes, Crunchy Sub Earth Booms, Deep Cold Airy Textures,  different Low Bass & High Lead Sounds and Wood Hits & Resonances.

All these sounds are housed in one Instrument which is completely customisable. There are many controls on the GUI to allow easy and quick creation of unique texture and atmosphere for your music.


Many of the sounds in this library are long. You can change the starting point of each sound by tweaking the Playback Offset Controls. This is especially useful for tailoring Reverse hits to your music and creating different sounds. Start Playback anywhere up to 6 seconds along any given sample.


Shape the tone of each Sound with two 4 - Pole Adaptive Resonant Filters - one High Pass, one Low Pass.

Glide your Sounds in or turn long ones into short ones with the full ADSR volume shaping envelope controls.

Use Pitch Change and Pitch Bend to create new sounds. (Adjustable Pitch bend Range up to 24 semi-tones).
