The Coil is a unique collection of sounds based on the mother of all sawtooths - the sound of raw electricity. The Tesla Coil is one of the more innovative soundsources in Spectrasonics Omnisphere, and can be described as electric energy transformed into a playable musical instrument.
electric energy turned into edgy sounds for pop, edm and ambient.
The sound of the Tesla Coil sounds a bit like a sawtooth. but is sharp like a razor and - at times - a bit unstable. Therefore, it's safe to say that this collection of sounds is set in a zone between the normal and the weird. It's like gravity is off by a few percent. Normal but not normal. With one basic sound of electricity as our starting point, we created 100 sounds divided into atmospheres, arpeggios, pads, leads and basses. To give the sounds a less radical counterpoint, we picked out 50 sounds and transformed them with some of our favourite mellow waveforms from synths such as the Access Virus and Oberheim OB8.
