“Modern Cinematic Soundscape Synthesizer

From the mind of Venus Theory, renowned sound designer and YouTube creator, Noctua combines the worlds of hardware synthesis and boutique effects to realize an exquisite collection of hand-built instruments, ready to create sprawling soundscapes and evolving cinematic universes, rich with detail and movement.

Dive into an incredible multi-layer instrument built on hand-crafted samples, push and pull each layer individually with discrete microtonal sequencers, transform them with custom designed single-knob effect chains, and then finalize your sound with delay, reverb, and master buss processing – all from a single, refined and highly focused tool.

All sounds in Noctua were designed, recorded and processed by Venus Theory to capture the raw and visceral world of cinematic sound design. Divided into three categories, ‘Effects Box’ sounds were recorded from a variety of analog and digital hardware synthesizers processed through boutique pedals and custom digital FX, while ‘EMF’ sounds explore EMF recordings, transformed and multi-sampled using a variety of techniques and effect chains to create usable sonic instruments, and ‘Analog’, as a morphable raw source, giving users a deep pool of sonic possibility and textural exploration.

Each of Noctua’s 3 sound layers has been fitted with a complex, microtonal sequencer with built-in randomization and probability. From subtle modulation and detuning to complex voicing and progressions, each layer can be customized with deep sequence control to create lush movement and sonic narrative, all with clear and easy-to-use controls.

Noctua’s sound sources are treatable with fully adjustable delay and reverb sends along with powerful master buss processing including overdrive, compressor, eq, and maximizer let you dial-in the perfect sound, all from within the instrument – delivering a complete toolbox for evolving, cinematic sound design.

Noctua features a custom designed selection of one-knob fx chains. Here you can quickly browse different treatments and utilize them for sonic reinforcement, or to create performance-based transformations to the overall energy and grit of your sound. Each chain was designed by Venus Theory, providing a wide range of unique characters to explore.
100 hand-crafted presets are included, professionally designed both by Venus Theory and the UVI sound design team, delivering stylish and rarified sonic tapestries, from brooding and nuanced to terrifying. Presets are fully editable, allowing you to easily adapt the ideas to suit your needs, or create your own designs from scratch.
