...anyone tried it yet? It seems like a very generous sample collection. In addition, many of the demoed tweaked sounds seem both musical and useful.

Really interesting I think, judging from the audio and video examples alone. I just wish the download would have been smaller than 900 MB. Well, one can't have it both ways, I guess, after all it contains 700 WAV samples... :wink:

Great! I was just looking for a collection of everyday sounds anyway so this was very welcome to me!

Nice Taylor Swift sounds of life! I like the samples where they're talking, could make cool basslines.

The only thing I downloaded in this DC. Good stuff, surely will find an use for that! Especially to feed my Iris 2.

There are however more voices than I expected, especially children voices, at the cost of ambience. Their use might be somewhat limited :scared:

thanks for nice words mate :)

about the children's voices - come onnnnnn those are magic for ambient!!!! :party: throw some multiple delay lines on them, reverbs, chorus/pitch and you have some magical evolving psychedelics going on :) just from my own music in the past, lots of soundscapes made from playgrounds/kindergardens and such :)

The only thing?

What about "Distortion" (marvellous crunchy!), "ProFET" (veeeery heavy!),
"Musicial Synth MPS" (totally new concept of handling and programming a synth),
"Mono repeater" (maybe best ping-pong delay ever), "Haunted Toy" (not every-
day sounds, but more freaky and wicked noises)? :?:

Just wondering ... :roll:
