Anomaly XXIV | Anomaly XXIII | Spectral Anomaly


Anomaly is turning 10 years old in January of 2017.

The idea behind the complete Anomaly series is to have a set of sounds that can create subtle, haunting, mysterious, evocative and even sometimes harsh sounds which you can intertwine to create any kind of atmosphere or sound bed with. They evoke shades reminiscent of Chthonic atmospheres and soundscapes, FX and aural cues more than likely to be found in horror movie soundtracks.

This began with drum samples provided by DangerousBear.com.

I had an idea in my head to take drum samples and turn them into FX/atmospheres....

So Anomaly Volume 1 was born - Dark FX, Strange Atmospheres...

This was originally meant to be a single library for the Wusikstation vsti. But after making the FX for the first Volume, and then making presets for it in other instruments, it began to take on a life of its own. Taking these sounds into different virtual instruments, such as Absynth, Kontakt, Dimension Pro, Rapture and others, provided vastly different sonic results. These sounds wanted other sounds to combine with the FX... But always with the general idea behind the first library - dark atmospheres, strange visions, ethereal and brooding aural ambience - the sounds of nightmares.

10 years ago the very first Anomaly was released. Over the past 10 years many volumes of Anomalies have been released. It has always been a goal of mine to use all of the sounds with each other.

Now, finally, most of those volumes are together in one huge soundset that explores the Dark in all of its aspects - haunting, horror, isolation in shadows and minds but never forgets the underlying beauty and love within the Dark.





Anomaly Vol. 1

Anomaly Vol. 1 collects together Anomalies VII through XXII as well as Anomaly Variations (Anomaly XXI) and Anomaly Core. It also includes Anomaly V, selections from Dreams and Nightmares 1, 3 and IV, Incantations V - Nightmares Under Earth, Incantations VI - Unholy Rites, Rain and Thunder 1/2, and Birds, Bugs and Cats.

It is available as a sample set of SFZ/WAV files only - no presets.

There will be preset packs for the following instruments:

Anomaly VSTi/Wusik V6/7 - also Wusik V8

Kontakt V5.5.2 and up

Absynth V5.3.1

Dimension Pro/Rapture

Each preset pack will contain 1,731 single sound instrument presets as well as multi-sound presets. These will take a while to make.

What people are saying:

" Very good sounds there, congrats. :-) I was actually looking for something like this, so you really nailed a sound that didn't exist on the market."

"A really fantstic sound set. Thank you very much!"

"I finally got around to try Anomaly, some dark stuff and brooding moods in there..."

"Ok, having tried out all of the Anomaly sounds, I will say this.......this soundset is f**ckin' great! If you like dark ambient and experimental music, this is a must have....many of these sounds are just dying to be fed through even more effects. If you like making pretty and happy tunes, stay far away from Anomaly. But if you're like me and prefer your music to be creepy and twisted, then by all means get this!!!"

"thanks for this Sf2-set with really amazing waveforms inside!"

"Volumes 1 and 2 are incredible! I'm not sure if you guys are geniuses or madmen but I've never heard sounds like that before. It's as if someone translated the deepest, darkest thoughts of some fear-crazed lunatic and turned them into sound! They would make the perfect soundtrack for a Cthulhu film! H.P Lovecraft would be proud.

Well done guys!

p.s. I was checking out some of the presets and my 13 year-old daughter was begging me to stop. "You're scaring me!"..."

" The last one I tried was Anomaly and it's the reason why I only had 3 hours sleep last night... The sounds in this thing are f**cking unbelievable. I spent hours upon hours listening to the demo's, and thinking of ways I can use the sounds."
