Sound On Sound review

In the Leads section there are sounds reminiscent of analogue synths, grainy flutes, strings and ghostly organs. Though designated as leads, some would also double up perfectly well as pads. In the Polar section the sounds have a colder character — you can imagine ice crystals blowing across a frozen plain or a grainy version of someone bowing a wineglass. Short By ADSR conjures up icy pianos, fractured voices, tuned icicles and cave‑like sounds, while Turbulent adds a pulsing motion. The Still section serves up pads and drones, some cold and icy, others warm and flowing or string‑like. Sounds can be changed dramatically by rebalancing the track faders and/or using the surprisingly powerful Sculpt option, which can both reshape the sound and add complex motion, so you can get a lot of mileage out of this instrument.
