Thoughts

Sonora Cinematic present Harmonic Bloom, a unique and easy-to-use tool that allows us to extract specific harmonic pitches from noise samples. The engine then has the ability to layer in a second instrument source, and combining these two can create some very rich tones, and layering in the different harmonic layers can be very fun and inspire new melodies. I really do enjoy this element of the library, the way it can extract specific harmonic overtones in various pitches- creating chords from a single held root note or even automating them in real-time in your DAW or with your MIDI controller to create melodies and unique soundscapes. It’s all useful and fun, though I’ll admit I think it is fairly niche, the ability to import user samples is a huge step for expanding the potential of this library, as I do think the amount of factory sound sources is fairly small. Overall, I do enjoy the sounds of this library very much, and look forward to using it more often to create ambient soundscapes and rich harmonic noise palettes.
