This is the first release of Karanyi Sounds' cinematic series with their brand new, easy to use Layer Designer Engine where you can edit, modulate and mix up to 4 individual Instrument Modules at the same time. Your Continuo journey starts now.

Ideal for...


18 Instrument Modules

12 Extra-Long Guitar Patches

  • 6 Hojave Guitars: Raw, almost cello sounding patches with a lot of fortuitousness and life for creating intimate textures or to enhance realism (as an additional layer).
  • 6 Badlands Guitars: Straight, edgy and sometimes organ-like sounding patches for creating sharper or epic soundscapes
  • Techniques: Bowed, tremolos, vibratos, beaten (with a wooden stick), driven patches

4 Super-Large Texture Patches

Open, huge and spacey patches for creating ethereal or even symphonic orchestra sounding textures when mixing with other patches. Straight, super long reverbs created with several eurorack modules, Eventide and Strymon pedals.

Extreme Timestretch & Synth Sublayer

Additional patches for extra colouring options including a 300x Stretched Bowed Guitar patch and Moog Subsequent37 Taped Synth patch.

GUI Features

Meet the latest Layer Designer Engine - a powerful tool for composers, music producers who are seeking for instant inspiration and extremely easy workflows on the fly:

New Engine

Inspiring, super clean interface right out of the box. Need more controls? Under the hood, you get more than 80+ smartly adjusted control options!

4 Modules in 1

With the new engine, you can run up to 4 Sound Modules at the same time. Also, you can add effects and modulations individually on these Sound Modules.

Effect Rack

Every Slot comes with 4 EQ, 2 vintage effects (Slow Leslie rotator & a Classic Phaser) and 2 Lexicon-style reverb sends. The combinations of these controls can surprise you with some very interesting new textures.


Turn your sound into pulses or create a super complex moving soundscape combining the settings on the 4 Slots. Choose from 8 different LFO presets from fast to slow automatically synced to your DAW’s / Kontakt master clock.

Master Effects

Add a final touch or go extreme with the Master Section: an SSL Style Channel EQ, Glue Compressor & a Master Limiter. Thanks to the high-quality recordings changing these parameters (especially the EQ settings) can dramatically change your overall sound. Pimp up your textures, add some extra edge, brillance, fatness with these rich-sounding features at the final stage.
