If you could only own ONE kontakt instrument for ambient soundscape creation (any sub genre - dark, drone, new age, lo fi etc.), what would it be and why?

I would tell you but I like to keep my ambient production tips to myself. It's really all about the sound and if I told you my secret tools then you'd be able to easily create the amazing sound that I am able to achieve.

Granulate is pretty good for ambient stuff.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

Well, I wouldn't be looking for 'one Kontakt instrument for ambient' but in terms of one really well-designed library, either of the Chris Watson-derived SonicCouture offerings, Geosonics or Haunted Spaces is specifically happening.
