Benjamin Tennikoff (Tenni) is our ‘chef de cuisine’ when it came to Bottega creating the Atlas ambience pack. We created this pack as a way to get terrific quality ambience into your hands and make it incredibly easy to create a beautiful sonic bed for your music, whether it’s performed live or something you’re working on in a studio environment.
ATLAS gives you the feeling of what we can only imagine it feels like to look down on the earth from space for the first time. It’s a full spectrum pack, perfect for transitions and foundations for your live set and for studio work. The sounds in this pack inspire and leave your mind full of sonic colours. Atlas is definitely present yet it is also warm and contemplative.
Haven’t seen the earth from space before? Click play and you can at least hear what it looks like ;)
This bundle is one pack in a series called "Asterial." There are 5 individual bundles in in this series; ATLAS, LUNA, SATELLITE, COSMOS & AURA, each boasting 4 timbres. Every timbre inside Asterial is a 10 minute long clip, faded in and out, in 18 keys (an octave + a third or G1 to C3). If that’s a little much then look at it this way; Asterial includes 20 unique ambience clips, each 10 minutes long and each of these clips are provided in 18 keys from G1 to C3. That’s 360 clips inside the Asterial series as a whole which means 3600mins of dreamy lushness.
Relax your ears into the coziest bed of tape delays, analog chorus, Moog’s classic ladder filters, tube spring reverb and analog synthesis.
Asterial is something Bottega has a lot of experience with thanks to Benjamin Tennikoff, our resident ambience aficionado. Asterial is a huge pack of ambience tracks that you can input into your song as textures and drones, adding incredible dimension to your work. Now when we talk ambience, we are talking beautiful, rich, interesting and mood-setting ambience!
How long is each ambience track, you ask? Great question because we know that having unique ambience that doesn’t loop is important to many of you (and is simply a bonus of those of you that aren’t too fussed about looping it). Each ambience track is 10 minutes. You want this sound in C# - well here’s 10 minutes of it, gently faded in and out giving you ready-made entry and exit points if you like.
Each musician/writer handles ambience differently; some of us are already grabbing what is available and putting it into our session and for these people, Asterial offers a plethora of ready made options in every key for longer than you need which means you’re good to go! Others consider themselves purists and habitually create new ambience every time they write and record so that they can achieve more uniquness from top to bottom. Hats off to you! Part of Bottega’s goal is to challenge the way that we all think by offering incredibly high quality ambience tracks, ready-made for ease and efficiency without compromising at all on quality. By providing such a range of timbres you can keep things fresh and creative as well as save valuable time.
You can be certain that Atlas is created from the best of the best equipment and meticulously recorded and produced to be effortlessly integrated into your session. The minds and ears behind Bottega; Benjamin Tennikoff, Simon Kobler & Grant Konemann, have combined their powers to create and curate a stunning array of ambience that is proving to be an impressive time-saver and another ace up your sleeve. Atlas is a sample pack that belongs on every song-writers & producers hard drive and is bound to become an integral part of your work from the moment you download it.
When you purchase this bundle, the timbre "Atlas IV" will also available as an ambient pad within the Playback app.
NOTE: This bundle is downloadable as 44.1kHz/16bit files, as well as even higher quality 48kHz/24bit files, to ensure you have the file format that suits you best. Keep in mind that the 48/24 WAV files are much larger and will take longer to download.
