All around amazing
I love all your stuff Joshua. It’s always well recorded and there is a wide variety of them from sound design to traditional instruments. These were some of my favorite from them. Keep doing what you do.
This is amazing stuff!
Thank you so much, Joshua!
The patches are inspiring, vibey and sound great! This website is a god-send! 🙂
Great set of instruments
I love the Autoharp with Ensemble for its higher register sounds as a lead above other pads.
The upright Bass Drum has a lot of cool foley-style effects worth trying out.
Steel drum is simple and effective.
Lots of drone-pad ideas in the String ODDsemble.
Thanks Joshua for all your work.
