So what is Dronar, and who is it for?
It is described as an instrument to make it astonishingly easy to create rich, dramatic, complex and evolving atmospheres with a set of controls designed to invite deep exploration, expression and discovery…Basically it is a niche instrument focused on Atmospheres, Soundscapes, Tension Effects and Drones. And it is Primarily aimed at Film, TV, Video Game Composers and Sound Designers.
My Favorite Things about Dronar
+ The Sound Design Capabilities – For the niche of Atmospheric Sound Creation it is Amazing
+ The Presets – To me they all sounded great as a starting point
+ The Inspiration Factor – Every drone and atmosphere gave me ideas for melodies, themes and rhythms. So
My Constructive Feedback
– I think the load times when changing presets is far too long to be honest. And I would have preferred a preset and category system in the interface instead of using the clunky Kontakt browser.
– The CPU usage is quite high, especially if you use more than one key to shape your atmospheric sounds with.
My Overall Impression
If you are a composer for Film/TV and Games, you will love this instrument. I have yet to find a bad sound in this library, and the control over the tension using the mod wheel is super fun and powerful.
