I just have to say that Eric - you're a friggin' genius....I just want to give you a great big hug!
I've been using a number of synths...Sytrus, Dimension Pro, Vanguard, Beast, FireBird, etc., but I never felt like the particular sounds/patches I used in certain tracks with these synths were spot on compared to what I was hearing in my head. SO....I started a little project when I woke up this morning to start auditioning Atmosphere & Trilogy in place of the instruments I had in each of my projects....AND OH MY GOD....the sounds I'm getting out of these 2 are EXACTLY what I was hearing in my head!!! I can't believe it.....it's like the heavens have opened up and as a musician....the feeling of hearing that exact sound I originally wanted....just gives me goosebumps. I do not know how I ever lived without these 2....I'm kicking myself in the butt now as I should have bought both of these when I picked up RMX last X-Mas. (I LOVE RMX....but only bought these 2 about a couple of weeks ago)
I really feel like a little kid in a candy store as trying to get that exact sound I hear in my head is not so easy, esp. since I'm not one to spend much time fine-tuning a patch. So hearing damn near what I originally wanted for each of the parts....is like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Both of these synths are just so damn easy to use as well....which is a big plus in my book as I rather sit down and write music than fiddle with a bunch of settings, so unless the patch needs fine-tuning to fit in the mix better....I'm more of a pick and forget kinda fella.
Anyway....I just HAD to scream out here as now that I really had a chance to see how Atmosphere & Trilogy sit in my tracks....I'm floored by the variety. This is bad...really bad for these other synths I own as other than trancy or acoustic sounds, in a matter of several hours, Trilogy & Atmosphere is starting to render them useless to me. These are DEFINITELY going to be my go-to synths now....hands down...by miles.
Eric...I REALLY can't wait now for what else you're working on as I truly am grateful for all 3 of your synths as they are perfect for my style of writing music. I will never question anymore of your stuff....I'm going to be your biggest fan. I'm telling you now, I ain't spening another dime on anymore synths other than whatever you come out with. I was keeping an eye on reFX Nexus, but forget it...these 2 by themselves cover so much ground for me, that I really don't need anything else. I'm just going to patiently sit back and wait for you guys and that's that!
OK...I need to go jump up and down some more....
