TIME macro - Notes

TIME macro is the essence of many concepts and ideas about music in a temporal context. It led us to this extensive collection of inspiring orchestral and choral textures, advanced articulations and dynamic gestures related to the paradigm of time. All recordings are unprocessed, captured with a multi-microphone setup in a perfectly balanced scoring stage.

With TIME macro, a very special concept came to life It all beginns with the paradigm of time, its implications and source of inspiration, moving on to the selection of instruments, designing and placing them creatively on the scoring stage, all the way to inspiring articulations and textures delivered individually and combined.
TIME macro is the perfect tool for underscoring, sound design and all those moments, where you need those special sounds standard orchestral samples are not designed to create.
ALTERED TIME
In the “Altered Time“ section, we play with the definition of time. Time can not only go forward with constant speed. Playing back articulations backwards or playing them back slower is the concept defining the „Altered Time“ instruments.
TIME ORCHESTRA
Within the “Orchestra“ section, we offer combined and production ready patches like Full Orchestra, Brass & Strings, Choir & Strings, Woodwinds & Strings. All articulations in these sections are an absolutely valuable source of inspiration when they develop over the course of time.

Orchestra

The Full Orchestra patches take the Individual Sections and make them into immensely inspiring full-range instruments both for inspiration and quick turnarounds.
The articulations are a subset of the articulations in the Individual Sections, so if you are looking for something specific, it always pay off to also look at the even greater range of sounds in the Individual Articulations.
