Amped-up analog synths

Incorporate electronic textures into your orchestral sound with a hand-picked collection of vintage analog synths and modular systems—the first electronic instruments included in the Metropolis Ark series. For seamless integration with orchestral patches, synths were re-amped and recorded on the Teldex Scoring Stage with the same multi-mic setup used for capturing the orchestra. Choose from iconic tones and overdriven patches that give you a quick way to add bite.

About the Metropolis Ark Series

Inspired by Fritz Lang’s epic 1927 film Metropolis, the Metropolis Ark series is designed specifically for writing bold, loud, aggressive, larger-than-life film music. The five collections form a cohesive whole that’s perfect for movie trailers, but comprehensive and detailed enough for all kinds of musical heavy-lifting. If you need orchestral sounds that go way beyond the ordinary and conventional, then roll out the Metropolis Ark.
