Gothic Instruments have released the third module in their critically-acclaimed Dronar sound design series. Dronar Live Strings is described by UK distributor Time & Space as "an expressive, highly playable module that creates a massive range of strings-based textures ranging from natural live strings and live-played effects to awe-inspiring soundscapes". The new multi-track module also adds synth, effect, arpeggio and rhythm sequencer controls.
If you’re looking for suspenseful, evolving atmospheres, otherworldly pulsating pads, haunting swarms or horror-laden scrapes and screeches, this could be just the thing for you. It’s not all twisted hellscapes, though. On the lighter side, its makers say it boasts complex, shimmering atmospheres alongside magical melodic strings brimming with emotion and rich tranquil textures.
Dronar can create huge atmospheres from a very small number of notes played. It automatically spreads out the chord in the mid-range, adds a root bass note, a high note and then adds evolving sound effects. Eight different sounds can then be simultaneously animated with LFOs, a rhythm sequencer and arpeggiators.
This frees up your other hand to expressively control dials with mouse drags or external MIDI controller knobs, and record the changes as a performance in your DAW. Subtle dial movements give deep expression, say Gothic Instruments, ideal for soundtracks and many other genres besides.
