Masterfully synthesized cinematic atmospheres

Alien Harbours delivers a cinematic collection of atmospheres, pads and sweeps created using elaborate fullpatch samples from the Oberheim Matrix12, Sequential Prophet-VS and Prophet-5, Waldorf Microwave I Rev A, Korg DW-8000 and Alesis Andromeda. Also included are bonus leads and bass presets ready to add further depth and breadth to your music.

Alien Harbours sounds

As the title suggests, these are meticulously produced cinematic atmospheres. And though the synths listed above are included in Syntronik 2, we deliberately saved these unique samples for this highly-stylized library. These full patch samples are extremely specific to this sprawling cinematic kind of sound and designed to take your music to new places.

The origin of Alien Harbours

The sample content was excluded from Syntronik due to the size of the sample sets and their superspecific stylization. This ultra-stylization comes alive in Alien Harbours where these beautiful hardware synth patches are further colored and animated using the SampleTank synthesis engine and effects.

More tech talk

In addition to atmospheres, pads and sweeps, Alien Harbours also includes an assortment of leads and basses derived from creative re-programming of the same source material. We've made extensive use of start point edits and multiple filters to create a vast array of electronic timbres.

A new destination for any genre

No matter what style, whenever your music needs depth, vibe or color, Alien Harbours will become your first port of call.
