It processes source material - so depends what you throw through it, but in essence you have some decent quality effects modules and a bunch of multi-stage envelopes that you can modulate the parameters with.
Thanks. I still read that as "takes any sound and turns it into pulsing noise" Which is great if you do that kind of music. But I will give it a try. There is a demo available.

I think most people use Tantra to create pulsating effects but you don‘t have to use it for that. It is very flexible. Give it a try.

Depends what source audio you put through it and what direction you push it in.

Oliver from Spitfire has a nice demo here using these libraries so you can get a feel for what they can do.

Yeah, I saw that, demo includes some of the sounds.
It looks like "labs" has been a project, which is closing now. What was the original purpose of the project, or was there really any, etc. in a mystery for me. But maybe it doesn´t matter.
My present Kontakt libraries cover about 80 % of the bundle instruments, but $ 5 is formality, anyway.

The Labs were experiments for charity. They did the projects for fun and experiments and all the proceeds went to some London charity for the homeless, if I remember correctly.

They are really great for what they are and you are helping out by buying.

Thanks, I will give it a try with sounds I like that aren't buzzes or beeps. LOL! Just thinking about it gives me a headache. To each their own. I think I didn't mind that kind of music when I was younger, before tinnitus.

Start with the presets designed for pads (start with PAD) and save the presets that start with GL for last ;)
Also, try with the Mix not all the way to 100% wet.

I have never installed or activated SoundToys Little Plate plugin. However, it is showing up on my iLok manager dashboard. My question is, If I want to sell it in marketplace, do I have to pay $25 iLok transfer fee?

Anyone knows the answer to above?

I'm pretty sure that once it's in your iLok account you'll have to pay the transfer fee.

That's probably the free one Soundtoys gave away to existing users. They just placed it into my iLok account. I may have gotten an email about it, but I don't remember seeing it. I originally heard about it here.

@sprnva - Thanks. That was my guess as I have some other stuff that I never registered and they are not showing up.
@dzilizzi - You are right they directly placed it in the account. I remember them asking the iLok account name during the give away.
