Anomaly XXIII - the Night Lands

Anomaly XXIII is a soundset composed of Nightscapes. Each sound is a looped, 20 second picture of a different facet of the Night. Like a writer attempting to paint pictures with words, this is attempting to paint images with sounds.

To do this I started at the beginning. All new seed sounds were made from new sources. What are "seed sounds"? Seed sounds are tiny samples of source sounds which are then stretched, treated to FX and otherwise mangled and sometimes combined to make a useable base sound that can serve as something to build upon.

Once I had a decent amount to work with I went and selected 25 of these and crossfaded each one with itself using the Anomaly VSTi's wavesequencer to get 25 individual sounds. These were then further treated to FX and sound mangling to make the 25 base sounds this soundset was built upon.

Each sound was then combined with one other - in two different instruments. First they were combined in HG Fortunes's STS-24. The second time they were combined using the Anomaly VSTi and its wavsequencer. Different combinations for each instrument. These were then taken back into both instruments and had further elements added in each instrument. The sources for those elements include the DNR Developers package, sounds from Paul Amca and other sources. No earlier Anomaly seed sounds were used. Each sound was then sampled through yet another FX chain.

This resulted in the 50 all new sounds of Anomaly XXIII - the Night Lands. That is the very short version of how these were created.... It is very similar to how the very first Anomaly was created.

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 fantastic 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."
