Scrubbing Monkeys has come up with a great set of sounds for Fathom. In getting to know a new synth I use these sounds as a guide through the possibilities within Fathom. I would rather go through a bank of sounds than read the manual. The sounds are very musical and usable in many styles. There are powerful Bass, full Pads and tasty FM sounds. My favorite patch is "Resonating glass bass". It's great to see mod wheel implementation and annotated. Clearly I would not have come up with these on my own. I look forward to more sounds from Scrubbing Monkeys and Fathom.
If your mix is going nowhere, try dropping in one of these presets. Trust me, it will open up new avenues for you. I've been using these presets myself now for months and they are perfect for epic EDM themes where a catchy lead needs a memorable patch.
I highly recommend this bank. Aggressive Edges has been one of our best selling Fathom sound banks here at Seaweed Audio and now is your chance to buy it directly from the sound designer.
The reason the Scrubbing Monkeys banks are so popular is because of the amount of detail he puts into each preset. Each one has been carefully crafted to be the kind of sound you can build a hit around, especially if you are creating any kind of electronic dance music or ambient tracks. Moreover the designer has a cool habit of programming the mod wheel on most presets to morph the sound into an entirely new set of audio characteristics.
The Scrubbing Monkeys banks also tend to be very popular with film score artists due to the sonic detailing. If you use Fathom Synth regularly the Scrubbing Monkeys banks are an absolute must.
