Info & Quotes
"If you're after a multi-talented sample-based instrument that covers all kinds of composition and sound design uses, Zero-G's Ethera Soundscapes might be just what you've been looking for... This is a powerful and genuinely useful toolbox for anyone working with sound design or scoring for games, TV or film. The textures and synths are great and the vocal section is an added bonus, providing authentic sounds that can fit into a number of different situations. It’s easy to subtly or radically alter the character of most sounds using the onboard controls, and the price is really attractive too considering how much content you get." - ASK AUDIO (Click here to read the review in full)
Computer Music Magazine review for ETHERA Soundscapes 1.2
"... We can't even begin to descibe the intricacies of Sounscapes' Vocal, Synth and Ambience scripts and soundbanks in so few words, but between them, they open up more epic and evocative male and female vox, electronic tones and textural material possibilities that you'll know what to do with - 9/10." - Computer Music Magazine, UK
ETHERA Soundscapes 1.2
"Overall I found this library compelling and extensive. It has an impressive array of eclectic elements and capabilities to customize, combine and recombine elements into interesting and evolving textures." - Sample Library Review
