Hey, thanks for the walkthrough, Don.

Really creative sounds and good tweaking possibilities on so many sounds. And a very heartful review, was fun to follow your journey!

Leaves just the question for me: Where to put those into the own music?
Possibly more as some fx. The other side would be to stay just in the dronic ambient area.
But this is each to his own, so my problem : ) Had it also with Alchemy and other spacy generators, which use massive sound-layers. Leaves not much room for other stuff, but I love to hear it breath and play with it.

I really like Rigid audio's work.

I bought several stuff included this and haven't got the time to even load it into Kontakt, ok, maybe a few secs to check if everything was ok, damn Real Life, why do you get in my way? lol.

Bought myself Cinematrix and Aquiver for just 10€. I find it very useful and there are some very fine sounds.
I wouldn't use the patches of cinematrix in context as offered, but build my own combinations. With this you can build great textures.

This is ridiculously good for the price.
