THE PLANETARY LINE
Welcome to a new kind of musical instrument for Kontakt, ORBIT and ECLIPSE, designed for easily creating stunning synths, pulses and atmospheric textures. With our critically-acclaimed intuitive interface, you can create rich, deep results in the blink of an eye.
Power meets simplicity.
The Orbital Synthesis engine morphs between four creative sound sources to create amazing tonal pulses, edgy hybrid rhythms, and dreamy atmospheric beds, all evolving infinitely over time.
“I can’t remember a synth where
I’ve had so much fun.”
ORBIT is designed for the rapid creation of stunning cinematic synths and atmospheric textures. Design dreamy, mysterious, or dark soundscapes using the universe of sound open to you in ORBIT.
Witness the power of the engine that drives ORBIT and ECLIPSE:
These demos are 100% ORBIT, except drums and where noted. You will find most of these sounds in Orbit’s generous patch library.
A NEW NAME
ECLIPSE pioneers new sonic territory, with massive sound that is heavy, forceful and aggressive. Produce epic modern synths with the custom-tailored soundsources, FX, filters and 250 presets available on the ultimate sound creation station.

I tend to shy away from ‘out of the box’ synth instruments because of the consistency of sound they provide, instead opting for the far more labor-intensive process of making my own. Yet Orbit has immediately impressed me with the way it can vary the sound you’re working with, to create something that’s very likely proprietary to what you’re working on. That is enormously exciting because it’s also very easy to use. Consider me an instant fan.
Instant amazing sounds
It’s musical, moody, cool, and every preset is immediately usable. Instant amazing sounds…
Distinctive and inspirational…
As a film composer, I am always searching for distinctive and inspirational sounds – well, I just bumped in to Orbit. With an intuitive graphical user interface and the ability to manipulate sounds beyond recognition, Orbit is truly an inspirational synth and one that will slide in to, and complement, my scoring template.
The synths sound incredible. They will definitely get some mileage in the studio.
Gorgeous and meaningful…
Orbit is one of those easily manipulative tools that fills a gap in the composer’s arsenal. The moods are gorgeous and meaningful to the storytelling of music in any medium. From very subtle shifts in timbre to a full on assault, I’m looking forward to digging in more.
Part of a new breed…
I found Orbit easy to use and instantly inspiring. It is part of a new breed of instruments, which make production derived techniques (looping and layering) available for realtime creative exploration. Loads of fun!
The ambiences are beautifully rich, evolving in ways that are versatile and extremely useful to the modern film composer. Orbit’s full library includes strong sound sources and a nice interface with impressive presets that are extremely tweak able.
This is my kind of instrument – instant gratification with a clean, straightforward interface that allows you to make any patch your own with a few quick adjustments.
Inviting and immediately usable
Orbit’s sonic possibilities are extremely inviting and immediately usable. I can’t wait to incorporate it into my next score. Well done!
Unique, interesting, and a great resource
As I find myself doing more synth-based scores - which I really enjoy - I've expanded my sonic library to include more new and interesting sounds. ORBIT and ECLIPSE are fantastic tools for me. Their musical approach and interface is unique, interesting, and a great resource for someone who likes to experiment and mess with sound like I do.
Within 10 minutes of playing around with Orbit I was using it in a film score. I really like software I can start using without looking at the manual, and then when I do Orbit reveals what's it really capable of. As someone who likes to us evolving textures Orbit has already found a place in my go-to plugins.
Killer Synth! I’ll be using it on this movie I’m doing for sure. Nice work!!!
Used it right away
I like Orbit quite a bit, and unlike many of the Kontakt libraries I’ve bought over the years, the sounds are not ‘too much’ right out of the box. So many libraries are full of those patches that sound like a whole piece of music when you hit one key, but I’m looking for things that can integrate well with the other sounds I create, and Orbit fits that bill nicely. I used it right away on my latest project, a six-hour miniseries version of Childhood’s End on SyFy, and a couple of things made it to the final mix unchanged and unedited. It’s a nice addition to my collection and the price was right
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.”
Brand New expansions
Vast, Surreal, Brilliant
Apex adds a sense of awe to any production. Inspired by electronic cinematic masters Tycho, Ulrich Schnauss, Jon Hopkins, and Boards of Canada, we’ve brought you vibrant pads, emotional leads, and provocative pulses to inspire emotion for your listeners
Colossal, Ominous, Lethal
Eclipse’s ferocious might is amplified further by Aeterna, ideal for action, drama and trailers. Fiery leads, aggressive sequences, and colossal moments inject energy to your compositions. Provide unrelenting tension and abstraction with Aeterna.
Hear them in action
Every sound you hear is Apex and Aeterna except for the drums and bass.
A NEW WAY TO PLAY
Skypad is a free app that runs on any iOS or Android tablet with the Lemur app installed.
What people are saying
The sounds are beautiful, I've been looking for something like this for about 6 years to be honest. I've always had trouble finding out what my musical "sound" was and this has really made a difference in my life. The way you categorized the sounds is pure genius to say the least (chop, flow, pulse, FX).
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.
I love Orbit and Eclipse! They are insanely powerful synths and are quickly becoming an integral part of my workflow.
“Orbit was immediately a source of inspiration. The sounds I was able to conjure quickly and effortlessly became the ‘secret sauce’ that pulled the entire project together. My clients were thrilled with the completed score, as was I.
Thank you for creating such a powerful and inspiring tool.”
“Orbit is phenomenal…. Absolutely Brilliant… All my Gratitude”
“Been playing with #Orbit. One word. Wow! Beautiful sounds and a beautiful interface. Lush pad to pulsed sequence in a click!”
“It’s freaking amazing and a real bargain to boot! Can’t wait to really dig in and make some music!”
“I love the product, like really love it! I will be mentioning the product to many of my colleagues and professor’s.”
“Orbit is wonderful – every time I touch a new preset I start getting new ideas for a song! Orbit is highly recommended on the Internet and I can see why. “
“Orbit is a revelation. I love this thing!”
“I was sold in the first two minutes. What an inspiring instrument it is. I am so glad I bought it – brilliant interface, brilliant features and BRILLIANT SOUND! Congratulations on this release. Keep doing what you do!
A very happy customer.”
“Absolutely love it! Used it on 5 tracks for a TV show on the first day.
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 project
“I was so overwhelmed by the extreme usability of this product, which is lower in disk space size than other libraries but has a gorgeous and easy-to-use interface, as well as a heap load of lovely presets to start with which really makes it a unique product that is well worth the money spent!”
“First – this is fantastic, instantly inspiring sounds to start with, but the real beauty is in the endless manipulation and parameter control.
I’ve already added this to my Logic templates, that’s probably the best compliment.”
“Inventive and diverse.”
“Love it! A fabulous instrument!
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.”
“I absolutely love this product, I just purchased and downloaded tonight and I couldn’t be more inspired.”
“I’m really impressed with ORBIT and enjoying using it. Playing and tweaking the presets has inspired ideas for tracks, but I also like making new presets from scratch – the UI makes that a breeze, so much so that I keep forgetting it’s a Kontakt instrument!”
“Orbit makes my head spin!
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.”
“Absolutely LOVE Orbit! I took a chance and purchased it hoping it would add a breath of fresh air to my music. It did that and much more. The QUALITY is outstanding so much so that I find I need very little “extras” when using Orbit. Also, the included sounds are a great mix of options: from aggressive sonic palettes to soft textures that are the “icing” on a mix, Orbit delivers big time. It is also EASY to use and allows me to concentrate on making music not wasting time trying to figure out how to use it.”
“I am Amir From Dallas Texas… and want to send you a Texas Size THANK YOU for such a great product… really a game changer…. I used to burn hours trying to create stuff like this. I am a program Manager in Software Industry…. and am very impressed with the quality and focus of your small but diligent team…this is refreshing!! Take care and keep up the great creative work. You got a Groupie in Texas now!“
“This is a truly inspiring instrument. Good scripting, good concept, good sounding! Keep going on, this real great work!
“BTW, you have a winner with Orbit; it really is an inspiring instrument and fill a gap in the genre. It is also brilliantly organized; the mood categories and the Snapshots presets show a great care was given to it.
Kudos to you all.”
“I just had to tell you how great this instrument is – within the first 10 minutes of playing around with this I set up a new preset pad based on the four sound sources, simply by messing with attack, release, octaves, resonance… it’s so much fun and so easy! I just know I’m going to love creating new sounds for this instrument- great job with the source waveforms and the GUI- so easy to use and such a pleasure! I hope you guys sell a million of these and I also hope you might set up a user presets page on your site for us to send presets we’ve created- I’d love to send some of my future presets to such a page.
Thanks for a great product and congratulations!”
“I’m in love with ORBIT… after 10 minutes of exploration it is extremely useful. Nice sound, rich atmospheres delicate and evolving, with lots of parameters to tweak. The possibilities are enormous in modern compositions.”
“When I first heard Orbit, I instantly had the connection and inspiration for a game I’m currently working on. The sounds are rich and the parameters choices really encourage exploration and make the creation of your own sound palette a very rewarding time.
Orbit’s sounds and features bring limitless possibilities.”
“I absolutely love Orbit. I will be using it on my new CD which is currently in the recording stage, What a fantastic tool, and it has such a remarkably small footprint. I love the ability to “roll the dice” and achieve that random bliss that comes from it. Nothing like it to be had elsewhere. You have done some really fantastic work.”
“I own almost all the top synth plugins and after Omnisphere by Spectrasonics….Orbit is the second synth which brought the excitement in me like a child with a new toy….”
I’m back! You just can’t get rid of me.
