Cardinals is sound designer and composer Simon Stockhausen's presentation of dualism in various realms. You'll find dark and light, tonal and atonal, serenity and anxiety, and Eastern and Western influences scattered across its Achromatic and Chromatic Percussion. Other categories include "Danger Zone", Keys, Synths, Strings, Pads, Textures, and Soundscapes. Each of the 109 presets creates its own enclosed universe, inviting many hours of exploration.

Who is Simon Stockhausen?

Simon Stockhausen got in touch with music at the age of five and never looked back. With his father's impressive musical works as patrimony, he explored a remarkable chunk of the entire music gamut. The last four decades saw many collaborations and projects that he carried out wearing the hats of performer, composer, arranger, and sound designer.
