TRIPLE ENGINE DESIGN
At the heart of ORBIT and ECLIPSE lie three distinct rhythmic engines.
Create modern percussive elements with Pulse Mode
Craft an electronic or stuttered style with Chop Mode
one-of-a-kind pads and textures with Flow Mode
You can even morph between the modes seamlessly and in-time, using the sequencer.
The effects page effortlessly sculpts your sound with delays, multiple modulations, diverse distortions. It also showcases a special convolution engine that that includes both practical creative impulses and beautiful reverbs from world-class hardware units that are commonly used in cinematic production.
ORBIT and ECLIPSE have 4 independent sequencers that modulate 24 useful parameters to further the creation of interesting, musical, and evolving sounds. Each sequencer has its own playback rate and extends up to 64 steps.
Automatically geerate new patterns, or process what’s already there in dozens of innovative ways. Then play it forward, reverse, both, or even random. Beautiful sequences are only a click away.
“It’s a no-brainer..
a veritable secret weapon.”

What people are saying
I bought Omnisphere a few years ago, but it didn't deliver on the sounds I wanted. It had a few, and most of them were in the music demo so I was disappointed. Orbit and Eclipse got me out of a rut and really brought me back to why I love music–the magic and wonder. Thank you, and I will definitely spread the word.
P.S. If you come out with anything else, I'm going to buy it.
Thank you for creating such a powerful and inspiring tool.”
A very happy customer.”
Very quick to get the sounds I was after, and easy to get my head around and get working straight away.
Very lush beautiful sounding instrument, so I’m looking forward to putting it through it’s paces on up coming projects. “
I’ve already added this to my Logic templates, that’s probably the best compliment.”
The quality and variety of samples are excellent. The options for modulation and effects boggle the mind. I am amazed and the power built into this instrument.
I am doing a lot of exploring and am, to date, delighted.”
It is a profound new musical instrument. Part idea starter, part AI, part mothership, it operates differently than anything else in my extensive sonic toolkit.
I love that you can easily randomize presets to make them your own unique sound. And every permutation sounds tremendously rich and useful. In the fast paced life of a film composer, that is of priceless value. It helps me establish the sound so I can focus on the notes themselves.
I am truly excited to be using Orbit on my upcoming film scores.”
Kudos to you all.”
Thanks for a great product and congratulations!”
Orbit’s sounds and features bring limitless possibilities.”
I’m back! You just can’t get rid of me.
