Review: ATOM Kontakt Instrument – Epic Atmospheres, Sound Design & More…

If you are looking at add complex & lush atmospheric soundscapes to your tracks, games or movie scores ATOM by AudioModern is the Kontakt Instrument for you!

Every single preset and sound source in this collection of over 7 GBs of sounds is pristine and perfect for adding atmospheres to any types of music. However, I do think it lends itself more to spooky, dreary, sad, and scary genres of film, games and music.
