“Really enjoying the infinite possibilities of Quantum. The sounds are very cool with a lot of analog character, and it’s lovely to just play some chords and hear the sonorities evolve. The GUI is easy to navigate, but there’s loads of control so you really feel like you can sculpt, modulate and perform to your own taste. I can see this being really useful for scoring anything from dramas to dark thrillers.“

DAVID BUCKLEY COMPOSER

JASON BOURNE, NOBODY, THE TOWN, THE GOOD FIGHT

"Quantum is a beautifully designed virtual instrument that will transport you to another dimension. Evolving textures and evocative timbres abound. It's awesome to have this software in my sonic world!"

JORDAN RUDESS KEYBOARDIST & MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST

DREAM THEATER

“My search is over for a library that bridges the orchestral and soundscape worlds. Quantum is amazing out of the box, and customized, the options are endless. Emergence Audio truly captured the feeling of infinity – it's an all-around great plug-in, a must-have for all studios, and a great addition to my dual synth keytar.“

NOMI ABADI COMPOSER

SEBASTIAN, NASA, NORY® DOUBLE SYNTH KEYTAR CREATOR

“It’s rare to find a synth library that doesn’t sound cheesy or unoriginal, but Quantum shines with uniqueness whilst having a professional and cinematic sound. The pads, drones and pulses of Quantum are really inspiring to any composer, and quick sketching can result in a fully formed sequence. Where I really loved using this library was in addition to more traditional orchestral elements, layering Quantum with strings and piano for a subtle yet powerful textural addition. With an ability to control almost everything for each library preset, the possibilities are endless.“

SID ACHARYA COMPOSER

NASA, LISBON AQUARIUM, HOUSTON SPACE CENTRE

“The pads are all tasteful and totally usable, none of those ‘filler’ presets that you get with so many libraries. Each one is so well crafted, I love this thing!“

JACOB YOFFEE COMPOSER

THE WONDER YEARS 2021, AMAZON'S FREE MEEK, DISNEY'S ANDI MACK

"Quantum has become an essential instrument in my toolkit for adding rich texture and movement to my compositions. It features an intuitive GUI that inspires endless possibilities from scratch, while delivering beautifully crafted atmospheric and rhythmic presets ready to plug and play for the busy composer. Quantum is surely a secret weapon for the working professional and hobbyist!"

MATTHEW RAETZEL COMPOSER

FORGED IN FIRE, THE 11TH ORDER, RING OF SILENCE

"Quantum is a quick and efficient pad instrument that is light on the CPU. It is quick and easy to use and produces evolving inspiring pads useful for scoring in various genres. The random feature produces very musical results giving you access to many additional patches beyond the included presets."

DANNY LUX COMPOSER

MANIFEST, GREY'S ANATOMY, NYPD BLUE

"Being a creator in multi-genres, Quantum has easily become an essential part of my creative palette. Immediately after going through a few presets, I was easily inspired by the quality, playability and ease of the GUI. Finding the sound you didn't know you were searching for comes quick and effortlessly. I'm happy to include this superb tool to my sonic template."

GILDE FLORES COMPOSER & PRODUCER

THE WOLVERINE, UBISOFT, LIONSGATE

“I thoroughly enjoyed using Quantum, first, as a catalyst for ideas and then as a great tool for creating textures that subtly develop over time. Just one note, using some of the presets provided, can spark a number of ideas, while the intuitive GUI allows you to dive in and tweak every aspect of the patches. Emergence Audio have created a really useful plug-in that I'll be sure to come back to again and again.“

FRASER A. CAMPBELL COMPOSER

"Quantum is a unique sounding instrument. I find it especially useful when I want to create warm sounding pad movements and textures on my tracks. The core sounds and presets are high quality and the interface offers pretty much endless opportunities of sound combinations and design."

ARTTU SILVAST COMPOSER

YLE'S INSIDE ENCE, BAHER OF FINLAND

"I found Quantum quick to load and navigate from the get-go, so I immediately began exploring — definitely hold down the keys from the low to the high notes in thick chords, and get carried away as layers flow into each other! Also be sure to play with the mod wheel, which is assigned accordingly: sometimes that’s cutoff to make your pads swell in real-time, and for other patches the modulation shifts between waveforms. There are unique touches here, like the “trigger releases” that play the note again upon key lift-off, and you can get some awesome jittering ostinati out of it."

TORLEY ARTIST

"QUANTUM provides awesome pads, drones, textures and atmospheres, e.g. for suspenseful underscore tracks, which on the one hand leave enough room for dialogue-driven scenes and on the other hand provide subtle, dynamic change and emotional movement."

BINA & JU COMPOSERS

I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE (GERMANY), DDC BREAKDANCE (2X WORLD CHAMPIONS)

"There are not many atmospheric sample libraries out there adding a unique character to a track. Quantum is exactly one of those!"

ALEX PFEFFER COMPOSER & SOUND DESIGNER

PRODUCED MUSIC WITH, TWO STEPS FROM HELL, SARAH BRIGHTMAN, MICK GORDON

"Quantum flows like the ocean. The pads are simply alive, they help my music pieces sound modern and organic without having to dig into complex programming. I really enjoy the sense of movement of the presets, as you play with chords the layers of sounds warmly evolve and take your scores into another level. The team behind this virtual instrument has done an excellent job, thank you!"

PHILOSOPHY

CONTINUOUS TRANSFORMATION MINDSET

Quantum creates the feeling of infinitely changing sonic motion. Sculpt ambient beds and standout moments filled with unmatched character and depth. During Quantum's creation there was a conscious intention to perform each note sampled slightly differently than the last within the same sound source.

This gives an evolutionary cycle that never repeats the same way over a remarkably long period of time.

Our intuitive Infinite Motion Engine™ and Non-Static Sampling™ technique will help you instantly create an ever-expanding blend of pads, textures, soundscapes, drones and pulses filled with nuance. Great for Film, TV and Game Scoring, Ambient Music, Contemporary Era Music, Drone Music, Sound Design, Trailer Music, New Age/Meditation Music, and so much more.

This sample library contains synth sounds recorded and performed by multi-award-winning composer and founder Michael Vignola.

MOVEMENT THAT FEELS INFINITE

Enter the quantum realm and discover

a universe of possibility

non-static sampling™

IDEAL FOR SCORING TO PICTURE AND AMBIENT MUSIC

Non-Static Sampling™ is a big part of what makes Quantum so unique. The varying time and modulation we created between each sampled note within the same sound source, our Evolutionary Cycles™, can last over two to four minutes.

beyond Modulation

Quantum is meant to be seen in the similar way as a solo VI is. We take things much further than simply modulating parameters on a UI. Underneath it all is a consciously woven flow of sonic landscapes that evolve independently over time through one another; this is a sample library, not a soft synth, composed of analog synthesizers and processed organic instruments of the highest quality. If you take the time to look past any preconceived assumptions, Quantum's potential and what it can achieve in your creative work flow will begin to emerge.

PRESETS EXPLAINED

The "Quantum_Main Pads" and "Main_Drones" Patches:

A start from scratch option.


INFINITE PADS:

As a play on words with our Infinite Motion Engine™, we've named our "Infinite Pads." These presets have a much more experimental approach.

CORRELATED:

The theory of our universe is the foundation for the Infinite Motion Engine™. This is a concept on how something can exist acoustically in two different places, but still be a part of the same source and generate something entirely new and intricate.


PULSES:

Creates a pulsing or swelling sound using our LFO component. A great tool for enhancing your compositions' dynamic range and movement.


DRONES:

An menacing atmosphere and low-end oomph are what this is all about. This patch isn't the only one you can use to make drones; any of our sound sources will do. When it comes to Quantum, the possibilities are endless.


MULTIS:

Various presets have been mixed in unusual and experimental ways to create these multi patches. You can experiment with countless combinations and ideas.


Dimensions:

Our individual patches explore our source material in a much more minimalistic form.


Suspended: This is our sustained (pads) in our dimensions preset folder.


Arcs: This concept uses the ADSR knobs, it’s set up in such a way that when a key is first pressed it will swell above the resting volume of the pad.


Short and Retrigger(STR): Our Short note presets are a little sample of things to come and Retrigger(STR) are our short note patches that will also play when you release your finger(s) off the keyboard.
