Frozen Lifeforms is a collection of premium patches for Synapse Audio DUNE.
This bank was designed for EDM/ambient/chill/electronica productions and is a great way to give them a soft vintage flavor. Evolving pads, uplifting leads, delicate plucks and mallets, all the ingredients for making outstanding music are gathered in this bank.
The patches extensively use the modwheel, velocity and aftertouch to make them even more expressive.
Before working DUNE, I thought it was just another VA synth. Then I took some time to experiment with it, only to realise that I was plain wrong. DUNE is very versatile and can be used in almost any genre. This bank took over 60 hours in the making but I wouldn’t have settled for anything less than what sounded perfect to me. I hope you get this feeling too.
Number of sounds: 64
Requirement: Full version of Synapse Audio DUNE [not DUNE 2]
This bank can also be loaded into DUNE CM and DUNE LE Beat Edition but with limited support since those versions do not have the effects section. Keeping that in mind, I included all the relevant information in the patch comments to allow compensation through external effects.
On the other hand, Frozen Lifeforms does not work with DUNE 2 which has a completely different architecture and all sounds would have to be reprogrammed manually. I might do that in the future but I cannot guarantee it.

In this demo, all the sounds come from the bank, except the drum parts and only some EQing, compression and reverb have been used.
“All the sounds in this bank are usable for a variety of electronic music styles. I find the bellish tones and keys especially inspiring. There’s also a wealth of beautiful pads and leads included. Recommended.”
