Hi,

I have a lot of BigTone librarieres in several VST like Nexus, Omnisphere, Zebra and so on.
For me BigTone has the most impressive patches/complex patches.

Is there a homepage of BigTone or of the prodrucers?

Is there a complete overview, which libraries BigTone has ever made for several VST?

BigTone is Brok Landers. They used to be a relatively frequent poster here.

Didn't know he had presets for Omnisphere. Indeed he is one of my favourites. Neither Bigtone and brok landers are his real name.. I think Brok Landers was a porn star?
His real name is Nico Herz..

I'm also very surprised about the music :-)

The most famous sounds of BigTone are the (very) complexe patches...which causes often goose bumps :-)
...and are more related to Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Art of Noise, Tangerine Dream and so on.
Rave, Disco, hip hop and so on I never awaited from BigTone....different worlds :-)

Has somebody of you an complete overiew, which libraries BigTone has ever built in the past?

Has BigTone released libraries in the last months/weeks?

Does the producer of BigTone release(d) libraries under different names (not under BigTone)?

BigTone for me is still outstanding in producing patches/complex patches. The 3 BigTone libraries in Nexus for me are the very best. Interesting, that BigTone libraries under other VST like Zebra, Omnisphere, Synth2 are also great, but not so impressive as in Nexus. I guess, that the architecture of Nexus provides BigTones the most opportunities in order to produce "goose bumps guaranteed" patches :-)
Or do you know about comparable BigTone-Sounds like in Nexus?

i didn't. that was the other, famous BT (brian transeau).
seems like eric persing isn't interrrested in my work - i offered it to him 2 times. he said "you know, we are a very closed team and we're very picky." so yeah... take what you want out of that fact. :shrug:

thanks for the praise - also to the others. really appreciate it. i used to hang around here quite often, but priorities kinda shifted, so i just saw this only now...
as for the nickname "brok landers" - yes, it was a porn star from the 70's afaik. but i swear i did not pick that name - it was given to me by two friends i ghost produced for. they made a joke out of it, as i did not want my name on these productions. they asked me which pseudonym i want and i said "i don't know - you choose one." so that was what they proposed for fun, i thought is sounded good - not knowing, who "brok landers' was.
so they took it, laughed their ass off when i found out and it went viral and went by its own... so i kinda kept it... :shrug:

Pity about Omnisphere... Would have loved to have heard what you could do with all those modulations/MSEG's etc.... Anyway everything happens for a reason.

Funny story about Brok Landers .....lol...'friends' eh :)

Still hoping one day you would at least do mini bank for the synth you co-produced? Legend.

Hope indeed you are still making presets, I think the most recent of your work I have is with Luftrum for Diva...

oh yes, i of course still do presets. i made 160 for avenger, of which 32 went into the stock content and a bigtone expansion, which is sold seperately. furthermore i did "bigtone analog basics 2" and "bigtone tableworks" for kv331 synthmaster... i might have forgotten some stuff, not in the studio to check...

So ... ermm .... Eric P might not want the presets, but ... if you have fans that want them, .... and they have money ... and they'd probably LOVE to have some unique special bigtone presets that nobody else has ... and the presets are just sitting on your hard drive somewhere ....

well, no. reason is simple - i don't have omnisphere...
but yeah... there might come the time when i'll get me omnisphere and i might do some stuff with it... from what i've heard the synth section seems quite capable and i also heard that the grain option is nice... we'll see...
