I hate sales. I fell for one this morning, I had the opportunity to upgrade my Music Creator Touch to full-on SONAR X3 for $49, and well.. I went and did it! Time to move on up in the world of music creation.
In the same spirit, I'm re-downloading all my Cakewalk products and will be re-installing all my synths and sample libraries. I feel a hunger for raw materials to process to death! Between my Dimension and Rapture libraries I have nearly 4GB of instruments.. should work out pretty well in my quest for mangle-able audio.
Amazingly I also found a source for Tibetan singing bowls and meditation bells! They're in SF2 (Soundfont) format so I need to convert them, but I have the tools and I think it'll work out well.
And finally, I coughed up for Audio Damage Kombinant DVA - some seriously twisted distortion going on in this thing! Perfect for really trashing a sound up.
Next up - begin work on my first full-length ambient album! Tally ho!
