What is XOSPHERE?
The Most Powerful Atmosphere Creation Tool Ever
After years of honing the art of atmosphere creation, Sample Logic now brings you the most powerful atmosphere creation tool ever invented – XOSPHERE. Inspired by the principles of synthesis and sampling, XOSPHERE redefines how atmospheres are designed, implemented, and morphed to fit all genres of music and sound design. This product provides advanced tools to simultaneously morph up to 8 unique atmospheres running through 4 morph module oscillators. At the heart of this is Sample Logic’s newest inventions, the Morph Knob and Morph Animator, which allow for seamless morphing between 2 atmospheres. Building upon the great success of the Step Animator and FX Animator from ARPOLOGY and CINEMATIC KEYS, this new user interface is Sample Logic’s most progressive design yet. Combining animation with psychoacoustic sampling and hybrid synthesis, XOSPHERE is the last atmosphere tool you will ever need.
Advanced Tools With Massive Power
Employing Sample Logic’s advanced randomizer function, more than 100,000 combinations of atmospheres can be created per Morph Module Oscillator, with up to 4 oscillators per instrument, and that’s before adding the numerous custom FX modules that come with the interface. In addition to the extremely powerful XOSPHERE engine, Sample Logic has introduced several dynamic, real-time preset browsers for choosing atmospheres, oscillators, and instrument presets. What happens when you put all of this together? Totally custom-crafted, unique, and original soundscapes that are full of organic life and motion, which are perfect for setting the tone of any composition or production. Before you know it, you’ll be transported to a whole new world of sonic possibilities while you morph between atmospheres effortlessly and endlessly.
ATMOSPHERES THAT ARE SIMPLY AMAZING
XOSPHERE is not only a creative sound sculpting tool, it is packed with inspiring sample content. The sample-based atmospheres have been meticulously crafted using various psychoacoustic sampling techniques. Sample Logic has raised the standard of organic synthesis by morphing real world and synthetic sounds into the finest Atmospheres on the market. Not only do they sound fantastic, but they cover cinematic, electronic, and organic music genres, perfect for any music production. Breathe life into your music with the evocative atmospheric categories included in XOSPHERE. Categories include:
- Dark N Scary
- Electronic – Effectual
- Euphoric – Spiritual
- Mixed Emotions
- World Organic
Want to easily make your own atmosphere in less than a second? You can take advantage of the user assignable random feature that will keep your creative juices flowing all day. The following features can be randomized:
- Each atmosphere (2 atmospheres per morph module)
- Morph Animator sequences (1 per morph module)
- Morph Module Oscillator parameters (1 for each of the 4 oscillators)
The Interface: Unique, Interactive, & Intuitive
Each morph module oscillator is powered by 2 sample-based atmospheres, each of which are user assignable and can be morphed manually with the Morph Knob or animated via the Morph Animator. Don’t know where to start or what to create? No problem! The dynamic built-in browser for each morph module oscillator makes searching for presets and atmospheres simple. Whether using 1 or all 4 oscillators, there’s no limit to what can be accomplished. In addition, each morph module oscillator has independent sound sculpting parameters and effect tools. This includes a fantastic set of FX Animators for automating various parameters. Perhaps the most exciting feature is the inclusion of a Dual Filter Oscillator that modulates the hi-cut filter of each morph module oscillator, generating creative and complex rhythms by animating two hi-cut filters at different speeds.
Real Time Effects
Each Morph Module Oscillator is equipped with the following tweak-able effects:
- Adjustable Root Note Placement per atmosphere
- Morph Knob / Animator
- Sample Start
Each Instrument is equipped with Master Effects that affect all Morph Module Oscillators:
Warping Beyond the Sound with Convolver
Each morph module oscillator contains a collection of warp-able convolution presets to feed the atmospheres through. Convolver will take your sounds even further into a new dimension.

What is XOSPHERE 2?
BREAKTHROUGH FOR ATMOSPHERES XOSPHERE
2 is simply amazing. Introducing Sample Logic’s largest collaboration in company history and your newest tool for creating unique atmospheres, XO2 is not only an infinite sound sculpting virtual instrument, it also sports over 2,000 inspiring ready-made soundscape presets derived from content curated by leading sound design and virtual instrument companies. The result is a momentous achievement for Kontakt and for atmosphere creation. This truly is the last atmosphere tool you will ever need.
OVER 2,000 STUNNING INSTRUMENTS
This strategic collaboration between expert sound designers and powerhouse virtual instrument programmers means that XOSPHERE 2 features a breathtakingly diverse range of timbres. In addition to sounds from Sample Logic, sources have been hand-selected from the best of SOUNDIRON, LOOPMASTERS, AUDIO MODERN, SAMPLETRAXX & BLACK OCTOPUS. All presets are intuitively organized in a meta-tag based browser where you can favorite and load elements of any preset with extreme ease- all from one screen, a huge asset for those on a tight deadline. It’s a breeze to find the sound you’re looking for without searching for hours. On the other hand, if knob tweaking is your preference, then XO2 provides many ways to dig deep and craft your own atmospheres with unparalleled flexibility.
Dynamic Interface Controls
OPTIMIZED FOR CREATIVITY
Whilst re-engineering the UI for XOSPHERE 2, Sample Logic prioritized creative control first. The result is a custom tailored user experience for intuitive dynamic navigation with optimization for all controls that leads to immediate sound craft-ability. XO2’s 4-core layout loads up to 4 atmospheres simultaneously, which are seamlessly fused and twisted via the XY sound mixer at the center of the interface. In addition, each of the cores are housed with a multitude of sound mangling controls. Breathe life into any atmosphere with ease by adding your own character and tempo-synced rhythm using the dynamic effect chains, FX animators, and LFOs.
UNPARALLELED SOUND CRAFTING CONTROLS
XOSPHERE 2 is the world’s most diverse atmosphere creation tool with creative variables explicitly embedded inside the engine. Dynamically change and swap out these variables to manipulate any element of a sound, fusing elements of presets with your own creative ideas. Feel like gambling? Then use the unpredictable, yet musical results of the randomization engine. Choose from the RANDOM filter parameters and roll the dice to transform your sound entirey, or just a touch – it’s up to you. Intelligent randomization provides instant gratification and produces previously unheard atmospheres that you can be confident are one of a kind.
