The TONAL ELEMENTS series has a heavy focus on creative sound design. It features assets that can fall anywhere between the classic definitions of a musical element or a typical hard effect aka. sound effect. They might be of rhythmical or sustained nature, they can be atonal or of tonal character, or even fall into the category of noise-like. In a media production, these elements always complete an important task, and that is to convey an emotion or help to tell the story, without being to obvious in the foreground, hence distracting the listener. Any Sound Designer should make use of these powerful tools, as they can make all of a difference when it comes to setting the right mood or triggering the right emotion at the right moment. These elements typically fall into categories like: Ambient Pads, Drones, Risers, Downers, Impacts, Stingers, Textures, Whooshes, etc..

In this release you will find 61 uniquely crafted and designed drone and ambient pad sounds that will transport you into the darkest and most ominous places. Each performance is aimed to be about 3 minutes long, to provide lots of versatility for even the longest scenes or trailers. The library is structured into drones and pads that can be of deep and ominous or of dark and aggressive character.

This collection is perfectly suited for dark Sci-Fi or Horror productions. Whether you want to create ominous and unsettling atmospheres or moments of high tension, you will find the right sound to masterful set the mood for the audience. 

This library is a hybrid production that consists of recorded organic sources and content that was synthesized and tailored from the ground up. For the organic sources I used recordings made with contact mics and geophones, as well as regular close-up and ambience recordings. For the synthetic sources, I used lots of different hardware and software synths and other tone generators.
