Prometheus is an epic cinematic soundbank for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 synth. It contains 96 cinematic synths of different categories. The sounds are influenced by the myth of Prometheus who gave fire to humanity.
There are 8 subgroups of presets here each one with 12 presets:
God Of Fire – Synth Poly
The Gift Of Fire – Synth Mono
Deucalion – Pads and Strings
Striving For Science - Keyboards
Iapetus – Synth Long
The Punishment - Synth Poly
The Eagle – Synth Bass
Freed By Hercules – Epic Pads
Each of those are myth facts and people around Prometheus.
The most sounds are pretty much compressed and distorted giving a “sonic hazardous” feeling. Additionally, they have a lot of mid frequencies to add more tension to the atmosphere. Especially the presets with the instant almost “abrupted” attack helps in this direction. Some other have a noisy layer included – especially Deucalion preset subgroup, which is influenced by the myth of Deucalion’s Flood.
The most important element of the soundbank in its entity is the heavy presence of middle frequencies which most of the times dominate the sound field. For most of the sounds you could make them softer and clearer if you don’t like the clicky attack and the heavy saturation by disabling the compressor or the distortion devices if there are any of them in the particular patch you work with.
That said, this is mainly for cinematic music but could find its way to other dark atmospheric music genres from rock to electronic music.
Patches were created with Omnisphere 2.8 and run best with this or newer edition
