What is Luftrum Ambient 3?

Luftrum Ambient 3 is the third in a series of ambient patch libraries from Luftrum, a sound design company founded by Soren Hybel. Luftrum has been creating high-quality sound libraries for various synthesizers since 2009, and has gained a reputation for delivering stunning and inspiring sounds.

The first Ambient library was for Alchemy, and the second one was for Omnisphere. This one is also for Omnisphere, and it builds on the legacy of the previous ones. Ambient 3 has 150 presets, including 122 patches and 28 multis. This patch library is inspired by famous ambient artists such as Brian Eno, Jean Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze and Vangelis. It also includes influences from contemporary artists like Jon Hopkins, Martin Stürtzer and Carbon Based Lifeforms, among others.

To use Ambient 3, you need Omnisphere version 2.8 or higher and 110mb of disk space. It costs $49, but you can get a 20% discount if you subscribe to Luftrum's newsletter. That's a great deal for such a quality product.

What does Ambient 3 sound like?

As the name suggests, Ambient 3 is all about creating ambient music. Ambient music is a genre of music that focuses on creating a mood or atmosphere rather than a melody or rhythm. Ambient music can be soothing, relaxing, mysterious, dark, or anything in between. It can be used as background music, meditation music, or as a standalone art form.

Ambient 3 offers a wide range of sounds that can help you create your own ambient music. You'll find lush pads, ethereal textures, evolving drones, hypnotic sequences, organic noises, and more. Each preset has been carefully crafted to capture the essence of ambient music and provide you with endless possibilities.

One of the best features of Ambient 3 is that each preset has been designed to take full use of the mod-wheel and aftertouch. These two controllers can add a lot of expression and variation to your sounds, making them more dynamic and interesting. You can use them to change the filter, volume, pitch, effects, and other parameters of the sounds. You'll be amazed by how much you can do with just a simple twist or press.

Another great feature of Ambient 3 is that it includes 28 multis. Multis are combinations of several patches that create complex and rich sounds. They are perfect for live performance, as you can play different parts of the sound with different keys or MIDI channels. They are also great for sketching out ideas, as you can quickly create a full ambient track with just a few notes.

How can you use Ambient 3 in your music production?

Ambient 3 is a versatile and flexible patch library that can be used in various ways. Here are some ideas on how you can use it in your music production:

  • Use it as a source of inspiration. Sometimes, you may feel stuck or uninspired when making music. Ambient 3 can help you overcome that by providing you with beautiful and captivating sounds that can spark your creativity. Just browse through the presets and play around with them. You may find a sound that inspires you to create a new track or a new part of your existing track.
  • Use it as a layering tool. Ambient 3 can also be used to add depth and dimension to your music. You can use it to layer your existing sounds and create a fuller and richer sound. For example, you can use a pad from Ambient 3 to add some warmth and ambience to your piano or guitar. Or you can use a drone from Ambient 3 to add some tension and drama to your orchestral or cinematic track.
  • Use it as a standalone instrument. Ambient 3 can also be used as a standalone instrument to create your own ambient music. You can use it to create relaxing and soothing music for meditation, yoga, or sleep. Or you can use it to create dark and mysterious music for horror, sci-fi, or thriller. Or you can use it to create anything in between. The choice is yours.

What do I think of Ambient 3?

I have to say, I'm very impressed by Ambient 3. It's one of the best ambient patch libraries I've ever used. Every patch is just sublime and candy to the ears. Those that have heard my own work will know I am a big fan of sequences and those deep pad sounds. This library has it in spades and then some more.

I love how each patch has been meticulously designed to take advantage of the mod-wheel and aftertouch. It adds so much expression and variation to the sounds, making them more alive and organic. I also love how the multis are nicely set up for live performance or quick composition. They are very fun and easy to play with.

I think Ambient 3 is a must-have for any ambient music lover or producer. It's a great addition to your Omnisphere library and a great source of inspiration and creativity. It's well worth the price and the disk space.
