9 Soundware Glacier
Glacier by 9 Soundware is a set of instruments for the EXS24 sampler within Apple Logic Pro.
The theme of the sound set is glaciers. They are depicted with renderings of glacial shimmer, floating ice, violent avalanches, intense wind, as well as simulations of actual sounds of melting glaciers, according to 9 Soundware.
The instruments are based on 50 samples (46 loops and 4 hits). The source sounds for the samples include ocean field recordings, audio with digital artifacts which were created from deleting and recovering files using utility software, noise, and human breathing. The loops range from evolving textures lasting approximately 30 seconds to wavetable-like audio.
In addition to the 137 MB Glacier.exs instrument which uses all 50 samples, included are 20 instruments designed to make use of the modulation capabilities of the EXS24 mkII sampler. Among them are tempo synced instruments, free-form textural instruments, impact instruments, as well as noise instruments which for both texture and percussion (Cryoseism.exs), and an instrument inspired by actual glaciers sounds recorded by artist Katie Paterson (Melt.exs).
