The Story of Orakle X

At the heart of Orakle X is our founder Brian D’Oliveira’s (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard) vast collection of one-of-a-kind instruments, assembled during his many travels across the globe. His dedication to studying the ancient performance techniques of these unique instruments, combined with our leading-edge ultrasonic sampling workflow, allows them to be heard in an entirely new way.

From aleatoric flute swarms and bombastic drums to bowed metal textures and extended Baroque cello harmonics, Orakle X gives you all the components needed to create visionary sound worlds.

Recorded with state-of-the-art equipment in our legendary RCA Victor studio in Montreal, and meticulously sampled to capture the nuanced resonances of these rare instruments, Orakle X has vast compositional and sound design applications.

This isn’t your off-the-shelf orchestral library. These sounds are dripping with personality. Our performances focused on alternative extended techniques that amplify the distinctive characteristics of the instruments. Simply hold down one note and hear the sound evolve under your finger. Recorded with sonic mangling and manipulation in mind, our powerful MNDALA 2 Sound Design Engine allows you to shape these instruments into anything you can imagine. Transform a beautiful quena flute into a speaker-rattling industrial drone. Warp our harmonically rich treble gamba strings into an otherworldly ambient pad. This is your sonic playground.

To get you started, our team of sound designers has created a bank of over 89 expertly crafted presets. Utilising the full power of our 3-axis RTPCs (Real-Time Parameter Controls), our interactive animated Perform View interface allows you to easily explore these complex presets. Simply map your favourite MIDI controller to the XYZ performance macros and follow this inspiring collection of dynamic sounds wherever they take you.

Our approach to creating revolutionary instruments

Continuous play and the pushing of creative boundaries are foundational to our instrument creation process. Rather than trying to recreate true-to-life instruments, we choose to experiment and go off the beaten track, in search of a new kind of virtual instrument.

Inspired by the natural world and ancient knowledge from around the world, we embrace expressive (im)perfections. Performing and recording instruments using experimental methods to create sounds like you’ve never heard before.

From our bespoke extreme-quality recording method using ultrasonics, to our constant experimentation with unique workflows and sound sources, each Instrument we release is a playable manifestation of our exploratory journey.

During our sampling process, the subtleties and imperfections of live human performance are embraced and encouraged. Depending on the final intent, we will creatively post-process as little or as much as needed (sometimes beyond recognition), always making sure that the soul and character of the performance is intact once it’s been implemented as one of our expressive playable instruments.
