Sonokinetic Release Sotto X

Sonokinetic have released Sotto X, an analog synths, strings, woods and brass library which is available at Plugin Boutique for only £70.08 / $85.61, increasing to £104.49 / $127.65 agter the promotion.

With so many enthusiastic Sonokinetic library users, it was inevitable that at some point one of their dedicated supporters would envision an inspiring idea for their next venture. So it is with Sotto X, an analog synth remix of their original Sotto library suggested by David Carbone. They jumped on his exciting concept to re-tool their orchestral classics with lush synth phrases and ran with the idea, which has grown into a full library in its own right!

Just like Davide, Sonokinetic shares a love for the sound of old synths, and vintage hardware has long been a fascination for the team here at Sonokinetic. As fledgling music producers, long before Sonokinetic could afford high-end orchestral recording, they would craft intricate facsimiles of orchestral sections using nothing more than MIDI programming and synthesizers.

With Sotto X Sonokinetic brings this journey full circle, adding an extra dimension to their favorite orchestral phrase libraries. Soto X is a fully analog, synthesized version of Sonokinetic’s popular Sotto collection. Very playable in its own right, and also designed to complement the existing Sotto orchestral phrases. The sounds within have been expertly created and recorded using an analog signal path, for both the synth tones and post-production effects.

Sonokinetic’s collaborators for Sotto X are the sound design wizards at Samplify in Australia. These masters of retro gear took the original orchestral scores for Sotto and transformed them into lush arpeggios and melodic pads. Using a huge collection of vintage synths (including classic models from Roland, Korg, Moog and Oberheim) the Samplify team used their expertise to extract maximum warmth and emotion from the hardware. This results in a collection of synth performances like no other; inspired by the orchestra but versatile enough for multi-genre scoring. Taking things a step further, the signal path was then enhanced using a bountiful collection of analog processing; including reverb, delay and compression units.

Of course, you’ll also find all of the features typical of Sonokinetic’s dexterous tempo-synced playback engine; chord recognition, harmonic shift, randomization and much more.
