Here is a PAD made from my voice (I’ve got a very low voice so it was a real fun to produce a five-minute sample instrument out of several noises I’ve made into a mic).

Strange but unique sound
This is a very useful pad for horror music or something similar to that aesthetic. A single long and low note delivers a wide spectrum of sound that you can apply to a bass line in order to obtain a very orginal result.
Abrasive and organic
The lower register plus long release is likely to be my favourite use for this interesting vocal /alien texture. Definitely usable as a texture under something else.
This is some gnarly stuff
A brilliant way of taking a source sound and completely transforming it. I combined this with a bass synth and faded it in to add a unique bit of spice to the overall sound and it worked really well!
Interesting sounds, confusing keybed
Even exploring this instrument is quite confusing honestly. You really need to take the time and become familiar with it, because it is "separated" into zones that offer different sound signatures, while staying at around the same "note" range. Some zones are 5 notes long, some others are more than an octave. One solution to that would be coloured keys in a Kontakt patch. If you manage to deal with that, you will get a lots of great and nicely recorded sounds to play with.
Interesting sounds with some issues
These sounds are certainly unique. they are cool because you can tell that the source is organic, but you can't quite place what that source might be. There are a few issues with this library, however. Some zones have only one velocity layer while others have two or three. The samples aren't always matched timbrally between the layers, and in some zones G#2 to G#3 for example the timbre becomes more gentle the higher the velocity, which seems kind of backwards to me. As you move from zone to zone, the notes will often jump to different octaves. I kept thinking that this instrument might have been more playable as a few different instruments rather than lumping all of the samples into one instrument. There are also some issues with poorly edited samples. Many samples have a distinct click at the start and the beginning of the samples aren't trimmed up correctly, so the keys feel really laggy when you play them. This is an interesting instrument to be sure, and a great first attempt at sampling, but there are a few things holding is back from being as good as it could be.
