August ’19 – #8: Dystopian Drones

TFO #8: “Dystopian Drones” gives you a set of dark, disturbing drones, taken from the “Dystopia” sections of Symphobia 1 and 2. The sounds were made by mangling & processing the original orchestral recordings into new, inspiring scapes.

Dedicated Kontakt interface

TFO #8 once again features a dedicated Kontakt interface with a set of useful controls to adjust the envelope, reverb, filter and other elements of the instrument. In addition, TFO #6 offers a Mic Mix control to adjust the balance between the close and stage mic sets in real-time. The Free Orchestra does not come with a Kontakt Player license and therefore requires the full version of Kontakt. All Free Orchestra patches have been formatted for Kontakt 5.6.8.

Open sample pool

Dystopian Drones comes with an open 44.1 kHz/24 bit sample pool. This means that you can directly access the wave files and use them on any platform that can handle wave files. Example are Ableton, Cubase, Pro Tools, FL Studio, HALion, Falcon – or your vintage hardware or Eurorack sampler.


  • Full version of Kontakt required.
  • Cross-fade loops were rendered into the samples. If you use the samples outside of Kontakt and do not set it to loop according to the set markers, you will hear an audible tick at the end loop point.

License conditions

  • Please note that while you are more than welcome to use The Free Orchestra in commercial projects, it is not allowed to redistribute or resell these sounds without prior, written permission of ProjectSAM!
