Review: Gothic Instruments - DRONAR Dark Synthesis


New Member
After the first three successful installments, Gothic Instruments is back with their fourth volume of their exclusive drones & ambience creation engine DRONAR – this time introducing DRONAR Dark Synthesis. DRONAR Dark Synthesis focuses on the realm of gloomy and mysterious retro synth sound design which was recently revived by soundtracks to blockbuster TV shows and movies like Stranger Things, Ghost In The Shell and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049.

With it’s nicely curated, twisted sound sources and a wealth of modulation options, Dark Synthesis provides everything you would expect from a library celebrating a synthesized, somewhat retro-style cinematic sound. You get loads of dark, wobbly and slightly detuned pads, cold and glassy atmos and warm, analog basses. On top, you’ll find some really interesting processed live sounds in the collection that can add an alienated type of organic feel to the synth sounds.
