My Latest Acquisition: Hyperion Synth

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.”

“On Pins and Needles (Dramatic Ambient Background Music)”

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.

Elysium: My New Toy

I’m excited to share some info on my latest software purchase. It’s a synth from Wide Blue Sound called Elysium. This tool uses a “two layer” concept to allow you to create complex sounds with movement and rhythm. I got inspired and created a new track that’s in curation now at Pond5. I call the track “Starting Now.”
