35 Individual Instruments
Up to 29 Round Robins
Dark and ancient string textures captured at our legendary Montreal RCA Victor studio. Creatively processed and warped to offer a wide range of expressive otherworldly sounds; from dystopian clusters to dark & ethereal textures.
Includes 85 presets sculpted by our award-winning sound designers, 35 instrument sample maps, and intuitive animated 3-axis controls. Powered by our MNDALA 2 engine.
Arca is an exploration into the dark side of string textures. Inspired by our love for sci-fi, we set out to create a playground of multidimensional sound possibilities. Using a selection of ancient bowed world instruments as sources that were then deeply processed to extend their timbres to beyond the realms of imagination, we have created a curated collection of dark, cinematic soundscapes. Taking full advantage of our MNDALA 2 Sound Design Engine, these unusual sources have been artfully sculpted to offer a wide variety of uniquely expressive sounds.
Arca is built around our powerful 3-axis control system represented by a custom Perform view animation created for seamless intuitive live expression. Each preset is a unique performable instrument unto itself to be learned and explored.
We simplified the manipulation of these sound-shaping parameters by creating global controls that are assignable to any MIDI sliders, knobs, or controllers. Map the controls once and you are ready to go without having to re-map them for each new MNDALA 2 instance.
In addition to the curated sound worlds we created within Arca’s many presets, you can easily sculpt your own sonic landscapes using MNDALA 2‘s powerful non-linear Sound Design environment.
