Try making your own sounds. Why?
1) It's a lot of fun making your own sounds!
2) You can keep the cpu load from becoming to high
I have a project that contains 12 instances of LuSH and I can happily play it in realtime on my Core i5 3470.[/quote]
I don't have an i5. I have a quad core so what works for you is great. Just not for me.
As far as making my own sounds for fun, I write cues for placement and I need to write alot of them so having fun making sounds is not really my interest. I just compose with the thousands of sounds I already have. Nothing against anybody who designs their own sounds, just one size doesn't fit all. Depends on what you're goals and interest are.
I'll use Lush eventually when I upgrade my computer. Just didn't realize it would be such a drain on the setup I have now. I'm not sorry I bought Lush so much as I'm sorry I bought it when I did.
