the entire Sonokinetic library worth £2500
As far as producers of sound libraries go you have to love Sonokinetic. Where others strive for the perfect beats and basslines for every dance music genre you can imagine, Sonokinetic strive for something a little different, so they have all sorts of instruments and libraries.
Just take The Carnival, an instrument dedicated to producing all the fun – and sound – from a fairground. In summing it up Sonokinetic pretty much sum up a philosophy that reveals they are very passionate about their sounds: “There is a certain kind of magic that radiates from the wooden dolls, the creaky mechanics, the lacquered cardboard piano rolls and the skilfully painted front. These instruments are meant to bring joy…”.
Then, in another completely different area, there are instruments like Minimal aimed at minimalist Philip Glass wannabes. When we reviewed it, we said ‘there’s little doubt that the colour and movement can really help to define and enhance the sonic landscape of your music – a surprisingly powerful musical tool.’.
There’s also Da Capo, an unusual orchestration instrument (‘an inspiring and intriguing software instrument that’s perfect for quick and expressive scoring’) and even a couple of collections – Trail Voice 1 and 2 – that are dedicated to producing trailer voiceovers. (Try saying that last sentence in ‘that’ US voiceover voice…)
The full collection of Sonokinetic instruments and libraries is as follows (including the mighty Grosso which we’ll look at next month). As you can see, there’s something for literally everyone…
Grosso, The Carnival, Güzin, Celesta, Yiddish, Toll, Minimal, Qanun, Accordion, Mallets, Ney, Da Capo, Vivace, Kemence, Nevel, Delphi, Sultan Drums, Aliye, Rojin, Yemenite, Fe, Tutti, Trailer Voice Exp.

With its collection, the company has won the acclaim of some of the biggest composers out there (including most recently the mighty Thomas Newman) and its sounds have appeared on movies, games and shows including CSI, Mass Effect and Skyfall.
