LAYERS 011 - The Gates of Heaven is an extensive multisample package containing 128 samples. The numbers are equivalent to chromatic key assignment. This is my most extended multisample till today covering a complete MIDI keyboard (128 keys). The sound of The Gates of Heaven is already in the name: a long (exactly 4 minutes!) slowly evolving dreamy ambient drone pad with a lot of subtle movement and overtones suitable for lovely background atmospheres that can be played as a PAD sound in your favourite sampler. At the end of each sample the lower frequency range diminishes. Think Steve Roach or Vidna Obmana and you know what this multisample sounds like. It was created using NI Kontakt 4 within Cubase 5 and a lot of convolution (Voxengo's Pristine Space is my favourite) as well as some reverb from u-he: Uhbik-A. To maximise the sound excellent mastering plugins were used from Roger Nichols: Finis & D4. Exports were done as 32 bit audio files and the final 16 bit conversion to the flac format was kept as the very latest stage in the process to obtain the best possible quality. And above all: enjoy!
