Brief: Ostinato Noir by Sonokinetic

Noir is the fourth installment in Sonokinetic’s Ostinato Series and while it may look like it’s predecessors it’s not! The entire backend of the library has been overhauled to produce smoother, elegant and realistic ostinato motifs. Recorded in the same music hall as previous libraries Noir generates immediate classic Hollywood fare. It blends perfectly with other phrase libraries such as Minimal, Sotto, Capriccio and its big sister phrase library, Noir. This library is designed for composers looking to create the emotion and mood of old Hollywood. Composers drawing inspiration from the likes of Bernard Herrmann (Psycho) and Max Steiner (Casa Blanca) will be pleasantly surprised at its authentic sound and character.

Ostinato Noir normally sells for €99,90 from Sonokinetic

Thoughts

As a film school graduate and purveyor of all things old Hollywood, this library and its companion phrase library is something I’ve been wanting for a long time!

Some will say strings are strings brass is brass and so on, but orchestration is very different for this genre and rarely done with honest homage. The layering of muted trumpets and horns with warm woodwinds is what delivers that classic nuance and this has it in spades. I promise that’s not a pun suggesting that you go watch, The Maltese Falcon immediately!

However, this instrument library is unlike anything in the marketplace. This is not a toolbox you can use for everyday scoring or spotting sessions, but it will give you something that the composer you’re pitching against won’t have; uniqueness.
