I am demoing Valhalla Delay right now and impressed by it.
Not just the delays but the way it can transform, for example, a piano sound into a pad.

Are there any plugins you use to creatively make new sounds from existing ones?
Pads and ambiance interest me , but other sound design too.

Anything "granular" goes a long long way :harp:

Some are effects, some are instruments...
- Granulizer
- Quanta
- Palindrome
- Crystallizer
- The Mangle (abandonware at this point?)
- crusher-X
- MGranularMB

Also take a nice look at PaulXStretch.

My imagination and whatever combination of plug-ins will help me get close to it

Tantra is a big one for me. Although this workflow is standard and can be applied to any of the plugins mentioned in this thread, I absolutely love adding Tantra to one-shot percussion sounds, bouncing them, then using Tantra (plus extra distortion, compression (especially OTT), filtering, reverb, etc.) again to create sprawling FX.

here's one for ya, edit two samples together but leave some silence inbetween, use the izotope rx spectral repair process on it, and it thinks its like a vocal with a missing piece and try and bridge the gap with synthesized sound, but since the sounds aren't supposed to connect, you'll get a surprising result.

Any synth with macros and a large matrix/infinite destinations. With the right programming you could make a dry pluck, sweep through to a dreamy pad with ever increasing pumping/gated effects, as one simple example.
Always Read the Manual!
