Puro (Finnish); a stream, brook.
Puro (Spanish); pure.
Puro is all about atmosphere. It's about modern cinematic textures and pads. It's a search for beauty in ugly places. Built from bits and pieces of organic sounds Puro, like the water is a stream, is built to be constantly moving and evolving. And like a stream turns into a river and rivers run into lakes and oceans Puro grows from small to vast.
The 200 patches in Puro are divided into four categories: NOISESCAPES (22), PADS + STRINGS (108), TEXTURES PLAYABLE (41), TEXTURES SOUNDSCAPES (29).
