Infekted has been updated to include new Preset Categories and bonus presets bringing the total number of presets to 6,474. Additionally 4 new hybrid Kosmos Synths have been introduced which use single sample waveforms from all collections. The free Lite version has also been updated and can be downloaded from here. Here is a summary of the new features:
- 4 New Hybrid Kosmos Synths – Each uses 80 single samples, 20 from each collection to create a unique palette for each synth. Using a single sample as opposed to the multi-sampled instruments means that it uses less memory and so more waveforms can be made available to each Kosmos synth. These 4 synths create a whole new world of possible instruments which are easily programmed due to the Kosmos interface or can be randomised and tweaked for more instant gratification. There are also mono versions of these Kosmos Synths as with all others in the collection.
- +1 Octave Preset Category – This category is simply tuned an Octave higher than the Poly category.
- Poly Seq Preset Category – This is the same as the Poly Category but replaces the Mono/Legato script with the unique HGS Sequencer script used in the main Kosmos Synths.
- Bonus Presets per collection – This is a selection of 530 new presets created using the single presets and tweaked using the Kosmos interface.
- Kosmos Presets – 600 new presets created using the full Kosmos engine for a diverse selection of sounds.
- Infekted Lite has also been updated with 50 Kosmos Presets and the Octave and Poly Seq categories.

Kosmos is a scripted front end for Kontakt v3 and above designed to create an easy to use dual oscillator synthesizer. Besides being a front end for the Homegrown Sample libraries, the main goal was to move away from the idea of fixed presets inside Kontakt and to provide a simple method of randomizing new instruments on the fly, whilst providing enough controls to tweak the sounds to taste. This leads to a much more unique preset than using pre-defined presets and is a creatively rewarding way to work as opposed to scrolling through presets. In essence Kosmos is an attempt to import some of the best features of HGS synths into Kontakt. It also includes a Gate Sequencer.

Radiance provides a varied collection of beautiful pads, synths, landscapes and textures and can enhance any music/multimedia project. This collection has now been ported to Sampletank making use of ST to create child presets to provide variations on the original instruments. It can also be used with the free version of Sampletank.
Starburst is now released for Padshop Pro with a staggering 1400+ Presets across 13 Style Categories. The original Virus TI sounds have now had some Granular treatment in this collection providing a huge collection of Beautiful pads and Textures. Each style folder uses a different template to get the most out of the WAVS such as Slow Attack, Dual Synth versions, Stabs and so on.
I’ve taken some time to simplify all the older products by updating them all to installers, in the future simply select your vstplugin folder and that’s it. All products live in a HGSounds/Product Name directory, so if you use an installer and already have one installed you may need to manually delete the old version first.
Secondly Ammonite has been updated to v1.22:
- Fixed a bug with the Microtonal Scale Menu.
- Added a new Filter called ‘Mellow LP’ – It’s an odd one which sounds a bit grungy and is not very resonant but it has an interesting character.
I’ve started working on an ARP update which will be released in the next few weeks, and I will also be tackling Vortex shortly afterwards.
Starburst is released for either Kontakt/SFZ/WAV or Sampletank, a hand crafted selection of pads created on the Virus TI Synthesizer. The TI is a superb synthesizer for creating organic sounding Pads and this collection is an opportunity to replicate this sound inside your sampler. Each instrument is made up of at least 5 multi-samples ensuring smooth transitions across the instrument. Whilst this is primarily a pads collection the instruments are mostly designed to be melodic so that they are useful across the board wherever lush synths are required. For Kontakt and Sampletank, there are many child presets which make good use of the supported sample engines.
There is a demo containing 2 instruments in both Sampletank and Kontakt formats available here.
Starburst is available for:
Virus TI | Kontakt/SFZ/WAV | Sampletank | Padshop Pro
This is a free collection of 64 Presets for the Virus TI (OS5). They are all ARP based patches covering a full range of styles from grinding Bass riffs to ethereal sequences using the full potential of the Virus TI. Each preset makes use of the 3 Assignable Knobs for transforming the patches in real-time as well as channel pressure(Aftertouch) and Mod Wheel. Knob 2 is always assigned to the Delay Amount.
Starbust TI is a new collection of hand crafted Pads/Textures for the Virus TI running OS5. If you think Eno, Budd, Japan, Sylvian, Boards of Canada that would plant you in the right musical hemisphere for where these sounds belong. They are full of motion and harmonic content. Whilst holding notes will deliver great pleasure from the landscape that unfolds, most are also designed to be used in a general musical context so that they are not limited to specialist genres.
A great collection of Drum Sounds/Percussion and FX one-shots synthesized from scratch with a Virus TI. Also includes 68 Battery Kits which are also compatible with Kontakt v4 onwards. This is also included in the ongoing sale throughout December for 1/2 price at just $14.98!
