Darkness of space The
journey into the future of sound quickly became dark and bleak. In Sonuscore’s Best Service –
Dark Horizon, the famous Elysion Ensemble Engine has been hijacked, augmented and vaporized.
With drifting space remnants, Dark Horizon
transforms the future into a dystopian vibe of massive basses, spaceships and drifting pads.
Turn simple chords into surreal, nightmarish cosmic landscapes, while the spin of the mod wheel bends time
and transports you into dark, scattered corners of supernatural fury.
The dark horizon of the Elysion series is a powerful Kontakt instrument that resynthesizes orchestral sounds and sound effects along with a wide variety of rare analog synths and effects units. The resulting instruments are crushing sounds, heartbreaking themes, rhythmic arpeggios, spinning pads and a suite of effects that take them even further beyond imagination.
Ambient – Resynthesized – Cinematic – Dark Horizon brings sounds beyond recognition, using analog rack effects and the dark powers of creepy gods. Use Dark Horizon as a scoring tool for any project that needs a dose of deep bass and gritty depth, or use it as a truly exceptional synth to create innovative melodies with outstanding sonic power.
Layered – Dirty – Powerful – With four layers of sounds and a built-in compressor, delay and hall reverb, create unique and disturbing combinations for a truly original experience. Each layer is associated with an independent arpeggiator and two panning mechanisms, making it easy to create complex, evolving pads.
Redefining Sampling – An Explosion of Expression and Variety – We recorded, sampled and produced sounds, treating them like acoustic instruments. This results in an unimaginably dynamic and unparalleled sound. Integrated into a groundbreaking ensemble engine, Dark Horizon further expands our strongest lineup of composers alongside Elysion 2 and The Orchestra.

Using the modulation wheel opens up a striking filter effect that gives you a lot of kinetic, digital possibilities.
Motion Engine – Dark Horizon comes with its own unique dynamic FX engine. This allows fundamental customization of tools, e.g. attack or decay control via Midi CC. Among other effects, Motion Engine also includes two panoramic steppers that breathe life into each pattern and change it in the blink of an eye.

Maximize Your Creativity
Dark Horizon comes with 180 complex animated and fully customizable themes, divided into five different categories. Each category has its own unique style and purpose, providing you with rhythmic elements, dark textures or sounds perfect for playing melodies.
Poly Animations – Complex rhythms for chords that push the sound field with movement and vibration. The mod wheel modifies arpeggios and filters by increasing the tension, adding horn, brahms and drone sounds.
rhythmic impulses. Low, throbbing basses with complex arpeggios unleash a large dynamic range when you press the modulation wheel, transforming rhythms and boosting filters.
Mono arpeggios are legato arpeggios set in dance grooves, with the modulation wheel pressing down on the frequencies and producing a much harsher tone.
The lowest textures are dark, tension-filled drones, complemented by screeching impulses, filters, and stellar reverb effects as you turn the mod wheel.
Playable sounds. Wide space pads and softly sliding legato. This set includes the bulk of the content being played. The modulation wheel releases all pent-up anger and tension as the frequencies rise.
