Here's what they say:
This soundset fuses some of best sounds trending in many different contemporary electronic dance music and ambient genres, in addition to providing unique and out-of-the-ordinary sounds not typically found in mainstream music or soundsets. The soundset includes many pads, flowing atmospheres, soundscapes, contemporary bass sequences, catchy arps, exotic leads, hard hitting, punchy basses, plucks, synth choirs, vibrato strings, epic cinematic drums fx, and keys. The presets went through a highly selective selection process narrowed down from over 700 patches -- only the best made it in for final release.
Potential Genres: Progressive Trance, Cinematic, Psy/Goa, Future Bass, Deep House, Ambient, Chillout, Psybient, Uplifting, EDM.
Every patch within Zen Starfields has all four of its Macros assigned, in addition to the Modulation Wheel. A tremendous amount of care and detail went into setting up the modulation assignments to greatly expand on the patches playability and depth of expression. Many of the Macro's craft the sound in such as way as to sound like an entirely different preset, so in effect the macros are morphing between patches in some situations. This is achieved with extensive modulation destinations to morph the oscillators wave tables and/or adjusting the FM amount between the oscillators.
