Splitting off from the VST thread since it seems like so many people are going to messing around with this, might be nice to have a little sound design diary thread:
VST freebies & cheapies, what do you like?

I watched those videos posted in the other thread along with some others, like this one:

The 50 min one in particular was really good, I wasn't sure what the Function modulators did and those seem really powerful. I was underestimating the analog engine too, since it seemed like the most trad out of all the options, but he gets some nice sounds.

I'm not convinced about the Harmonic engine on its own yet, it sounds kinda dinky to me without adding a bunch of compression and fx, when compared to Razor. But I do love putting samples from Razor in the Sampler engine.

Next I want to mess around with the wavetables, especially loading in your own samples to create wavetables, seems like that has a ton of potential.

Also the sequencer and arp seem really fun, this might be the first sequencer that I actually use (I'm used to just programming the midi manually, but the probability and random aspects are very appealing).

Whoa, so that's what the 'Polyrhythm' part of the sequencer does (via the last part of the video posted by Moodles). Not what I expected and my mind is kinda blown.

good job jordan!

from the vst thread:

I definitely feel like I need to learn some basic sound design concepts. I can come up with something kind of cool just by tinkering, turning knobs, and linking things together, but I wish I actually knew how to dial up a specific at will.

moodles: red means recording made a good video about basic sound design using pigments:

Ah good stuff - and you probably saw that jeremy had some other good pigments stuff on his channel as well.

Pigments sequencer starting to make wish that all my other stuff had that level of functionality on it

Very glad to see this thread & a thriving ILX Pigments community. I'm hoping to catch up with all the stuff posted so far during the next week. Good luck, everyone! :)

Unlike a lot of VSTs I bought over the pandemic the UI on this encourages and rewards fucking around and finding out.

made some good yoga-class-on-a-space-station vibes today, the interface looks so fuckin nice when you have a zillion modulators modulating

the arp/sequencer is terrific, usually i have a zillion randomizing effects and M4L devices going to create movement in my lazy soundscapes, way more fun to dial it in here
