Today, I added a new tool to my toolbox. It’s the Hyperion multilayer synth, available from Tracktion. I will probably spend the rest of my life exploiting the capabilities of this amazing VST3 synth plugin, yet in 10 minutes I was able to produce a fantastic piece of dramatic ambient background music with it. Here’s a preview version of “On Pins and Needles.”
The bell tones, arpeggiated plucks and some of the pad tones are all produced by Hyperion. I also used a patch from my Alchemy plugin to create some additional atmospheric soundscape. I’ve already uploaded this to Pond5 and hope to be able to share the news soon when it’s available to license.
