What kinds of sounds are included?

Classic analogue brass, leads and basses, deep, evolving pads, shimmering bells, funky arps, electric pianos and much more! The common thread is that all the sounds are musically satisfying and inspirational with each preset being an extremely playable instrument in its own right.

In Electric Himalaya's words:

"My synth presets are the result of my passion for electronic sound and music. Editing patches is as exciting as making music for me. Ending up with a sound that inspires a musical idea is even more fulfilling. Perhaps this is the best test for a patch - if it inspires a melody, a riff or a chord sequence, I keep it, if not, it is binned or modified.

"Then again, what I may consider as beautiful, you may consider as noisy or harsh. Whichever it is, I hope that these sounds will inspire your musical creativity.

"Let these presets be just a starting point for a further modification to make each sound your own."

The 'AR LFO' presets don't seem to respond like normal arpeggiator presets - how should these be used?

The rhythm in presets labelled 'AR LFO' is created only by LFOs - they do not use the Cypher arpeggiator at all. The effect of playing chords with these presets sounds similar to using an arpeggiator, but since they do not actually use the arpeggiator in the synths, you cannot manipulate them in the same way as normal AR presets.

What is the license transfer policy for this product?

Normally we allow license transfers with an accompanying fee, but the price point for this sample-pack is extremely low, and license transfers would not make sense.

Therefore, sales are final on this product - you are paying for access and use of the content for your productions only.
