MUSICAL SOUNDSCAPES OF ICE AND SNOW

NORDIC SPHERES is a Kontakt instrument that creates vast, frozen soundscapes and musical spheres using a combination of rich, sound effects content, granular synthesis, and percussive sounds. We worked with Mats Lundgren and Amina Hocine from Sweden-based Pole Position to create a treasure trove of rich tonal and non-tonal audio from a wealth of creative sources. Matsโ€™ recordings combined with our layering and arpeggiator possibilities have created a truly inspirational instrument.

The sonic sibling of TIME TEXTURES and CHROMA, it is perfect for composers and producers who want to experiment with both sound design and music.

THE BLISS OF NUMBNESS
NORDIC SPHERES was created from a variety of mangled atypical tonal and non-tonal sounds and effects, mixed together like crashing glaciers. There are four layers from which to build an intricate texture, each with its own ADSR, arpeggiator, and FX options that include EQ, saturation, chorus, and tremolo.

SLIDING WITH THE GRAIN
NORDIC SPHERES was designed with great glacial movements in mind. Our Grain Engine was the natural choice to achieve this, so that, like snowflakes, no two sounds are ever the same. Meanwhile, our advanced arpeggiator engine allows for complex weaves to float through the sonic spectrum, while the modulation knob controls any number of motion FX.

Layers of the Spheres
The main page allows you access to the 4 layers of the instrument and the main controls to delve deeper into the cold. The bottom two layers focus on hits, particles and sustains, while the top two are the Grain Engines, loaded with tonal, non-tonal and looping sounds.

Ever-Evolving
The natural motions of each layer can be easily tied to the modwheel with a single option. Tie the Grain Engines to the modwheel to seep the cold into mysterious textures and build up the shifting particles and hits to add kinetic energy.

Preset Browser
Choose from over 200 different chilling and creeping presets. Use them as they were designed or tap into your inner dvergar, tinkering with them to create your own.

 
ECHOES OF AN ETERNAL EXPANSE

The secret behind the crystalline and haunting tones of NORDIC SPHERES lies in the expressive capabilities of the four layers and how the effects are tied to the modwheel.


GRAIN ENGINES

The two upper layers feature the Grain Engines โ€“ the real icing on the instrument. Adjust the density for thickness, the starting position for something harder to grasp, and change the timing to smear or shatter the sound like falling icycles. Further advanced controls include an ADSR and arpeggiator, with the FX able to be tied to the modwheel.

LAYERS

NORDIC SPHERES is like the tundra, with layers of frost and ice. Unlike the permafrost, however, itโ€™s easy to build upon them. For the two Grain Engines, choose from Tonal, Tonal Effects, Non-Tonal Effects, and Looping sounds and from the two traditional sample engines: Hits, Particles, and Sustains. Each layer has access to an arpeggiator and FX.

ARPEGGIATORS

Just as in our other instruments, you can always expect powerful arpeggiators backing the sound of SONUSCORE products. Each layer has access to its own arpeggiator or LFO, allowing you to create intricate patterns that freeze the senses and immediately inspire new musical ideas.

 
FROM ICY TONES TO VOLCANIC RAGE

With our Motion options in each FX grid, tie the FX to the modwheel, allowing you to drastically change the timbre, from icey detachment to burning rage. Use the presets to discover the kinds of changes that you can scrape out, and guide your sounds to whole new spectrums by the interplay of grain, particle, and pad.

 
SOUNDS CRAFTED BY MATS LUNDGREN AND AMINA HOCINE OF POLE POSITION

 
 
As a composer and sound designer for Pole Position, Mats Lundgren has over 20 years of experience in audio creation. His love for experimental percussion shines through in his scores for Just Cause 2, Mad Max, Generation Zero, The Hunger: Call of the Wild, and more, as well as in his work for NORDIC SPHERES.

 
 
 
 
 

Amina Hocine is a trained classical pianist who early on began experimenting with the interplay of music and technology, so it was only natural that she became a master at synthesizers. At Pole Position, she works as a sound designer working on recording instruments and sounds and making them more interesting while also studying at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

SONUSCORE was founded in 2012 as a label of the award winning music and sound production studio Dynamedion and was created by the same team that founded the highly acclaimed BOOM Library.

The three founders are combining their vast experience in orchestral music production, high end sound quality claims and a cutting edge approach to perfectly balanced usability, in order to shape some of the most incredible virtual instruments out there!
