Spitfire Audio teamed up with Warp Records artists Darkstar on new: Darkstar: Haunted House
“HAUNTED HOUSE IS THOSE SOUNDS THAT CREEP AROUND, AND LIE IN THE PERIPHERY. WE LOOK TO THE BODY OF A SOUND, AND THEN A BLURRED EDGE, OR A RIPPLE OF SOMETHING THAT BURNS.”
— JAMES YOUNG, DARKSTAR
Processed analogue synth textures and loops, rich sub-basses and more, inspired by exploring their experience of the ever-changing London music scene. This will really appeal to all music makers, from media composition to the club scene, the diverse selection of sounds with the added ability to treat and expand these samples further through our plug-in.
From the developer:
DARKSTAR – HAUNTED HOUSE
Immerse yourself in the unique sound world of electronic duo Darkstar (Warp Records) — processed analogue synth textures and loops, rich sub-basses, pitched-down drums, and icy, warped vocals, each layered with subliminal spectral echoes of rave culture and industrial white noise, ghosts in the machine, bleeding in and fading out.
From dark and ominous, to warm, heartfelt nostalgia, each sound is full of character and emotion, designed to create tension, depth and atmosphere for any setting — from contemporary electronic music, to hybrid, modern film, TV & game composition. Presented in our award-winning, easy-to-use dedicated plug-in, this versatile tool offers a range of controls and effects, so you can immediately transform each preset to facilitate your own vision.
Haunted House expands on the sonic palette of Darkstar’s 2020 album release Civic Jams — ‘a photonegative of a dance record’ — exploring their experience of the ever-changing London music scene — the claustrophobia and the euphoria; the sense of belonging found amidst the isolation of inner-city life; the uncertainty of its future.
