Here’s a sneak preview of u-he’s The Dark Zebra software synthesizer – a Zebra2 soundbank created by Hans Zimmer and Howard Scarr for the soundtrack to The Dark Knight Rises.
A bank of over 400 presets, a collaboration between Hans Zimmer and Howard Scarr. Practically all Zebra sounds in the The Dark Knight as well as The Dark Knight Rises soundtracks are included, plus several more that didn’t quite fit it into the scores. Furthermore, the pack includes Hans’ custom built version of Zebra, dubbed ZebraHZ. Many of the more recent patches make use of the extra features available in ZebraHZ.
The Dark Zebra synth will be available starting July 23rd, 2012 at the u-he site for $99. .
Note: Running the HZ version of this plugin requires a license for Zebra2.
