Introducing Treeswift Audio

Even with terabyte-sized sample sets reigning supreme in the media scoring world, synthesizers play a hugely important role in our work; they provide us with the sounds for the more electronic flavors in our music, but – maybe more importantly ­– they’re also indispensable tools for creating our own, truly unique and unheard-of sounds. Whenever a project comes along that calls for it, I make sure to earmark some time to sit myself down with a couple synths and come up with my own signature sounds and earcatchers, and for almost as long as I’ve been doing that, I’ve considered making collections of my own sonic creations and sharing them with fellow composers one day.

That day has now come: I’m excited to announce the launch of my own soundware label Treeswift Audio, under which I will produce and sell my own libraries of synth and sample-based instruments. The debut product is Zebra Elementals: ISLA, a collection of 120 ready-to-play instruments for u-he‘s excellent software synthesizer Zebra2, all of which are inspired by water and fluidity in some form. The library is primarily aimed at other professional film and media composers, but is also an essential source of inspiration and creativity for anyone making electronica and pop music.

Since it’s only tangentially related to my musical work, I’ll only sporadically mention my sound design products on here; but if you’re interested in any aspect of music production yourself, I invite you to bookmark the Treeswift Audio website and follow us on Facebook to stay in the loop!
