GAIA is a soundset for Omnisphere created by Subsonic Artz and available via Triple Spiral Audio
GAIA is a special project, very close to my heart, because this soundset is a poetic attempt to celebrate the beauties of our home.
Since I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated by the documentaries about the wild animals and amazing nature landscapes of all kinds. The sounds of nature like the wind in the trees or birds fot example have always inspired me. GAIA is aimed at the ambient, organic, wonderful atmospheric kind of sounds with a delicate celestial touch.
Enigma and Enya or new age music fans will love them.
But GAIA is also describing some human activities and behaviors especially through the fx and arp & rhythm Cinematic kind of patches: The sounds are then getting harsh dark and aggressive.
- 136 patches (GAIA is compatible with both Omnisphere 1.5 and Omnisphere 2)
- 32 Arp & Rythms
- 5 Keyboards
- 25 Pads & strings
- 16 Fx & Noises
- 48 Textures
- 10 Human voices
- The library can work both with mac OS X (10.7 or above) or windows (7 or above).
- All patches have a wired modwheel and poetic/spiritual notes to make you dream or meditate.
This thing rules by david Rosen:
“GAIA is a new expansion pack for Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere by SubsonicArtz. You may remember SubsonicArtz as the maker of the Pulsar Project expansion pack for CL-Projects’ Hypernova, which I reviewed in a previous THIS THING RULES entry. As usual, lets listen to a demo I created specifically for this review, “The Secret Reason.”…
From some Users:
I just bought omnisphere and many sound sets and have to say GAIA is an amazing sound set , the pads and vox patches are full , not thin at all. If you are into making background tracks for film/tv , or new age music GAIA is a must have but I also plan on using it in hiphop and RnB joints as well. The SFX patches are great as well for adding mood.Textures have alot of color. Theres also some Arps with alot of character. I hope to see GAIA2. I can tell alot of work and detail were put into this sound set. Props to the makers of GAIA…“
Quantum 7 on Kvr: “I don’t know how I missed this soundset….considering I’m a New Age music composer, but I’m glad I found it. $15 is an absolute STEAL for this. Really REALLY great material here, not just for New Age, but any cinematic score that needs Ethereal and Ambient sounds from angelically beautiful to mysteriously scary. The creator of Gaia is a fantastic Omnisphere patch creator and the results surprised me with sounds I didn’t even know were in Omnisphere. I highly recommend this to anyone who is on the fence about it. FANTASTIC JOB!!!!!!!”…
