Hardware ▨ Software ▨ Mobile tech ▨ Accessories

Every aspect of music production is being made more accessible with technology: from creating the perfect dancefloor beats to easy pro mastering. However, in more recent times, the target audience for software developers seems to have shifted to the soundtrack composer – or wannabe soundtrack composer – so we’ve had many libraries and instruments aimed specifically at them.

I’ve looked at a stack of these over the last couple of years, including fantasy favourites from Eduardo Tarilonte (Shevannai and Era) and sci-fi blockbusters from Heavyocity (Gravity) and Wide Blue Sound (Orbit).

While all very different, these collections do have one thing in common: atmosphere. They will help transport your music making to another place or time, so are ideal tools for the soundtrack composer. With the blockbuster soundtrack being so high-profile, and pop careers being so low-cash, everybody wants to be the next Hans Zimmer rather than the next Eurovision entry, so collections like these are becoming almost as ubiquitous as analogue synths.
