Moon Shot Pad Soaked

A pretty pad soaked in Strymon reverb and delay.

The story

This is the Moon Shot Pad soaked in reverb and delays.

I first created a pad on my Korg Minilogue xd and ran the samples thru Strymon Big Sky and Volante, whilst turning the mechanics and wear knobs. This is my first pad complete with images and a couple of mapped knobs. Use of mod wheel begins to distort the higher frequencies. I know this isn’t a piano, but it’s somewhat of a pretty pad, and a moon shot for me.

  • The first of the Intimate Spaces!

    This is the start of a great series that I am a big fan of. As all of the other instruments in the The Intimate Spaces collection, this patch features a very dark and bass heavy pad inspired by the emptiness of space. The pad is very wet, so it might be intimidating at first, but the ambience that it provides amazing and the quality is very nice. I recommend you check out all ofthe soaked patches, they are very worthy of your attention!

  • Eerie Drone Pads

    I renamed this instrument Eerie Drone Pads in my folder because it has a creepy drone quality that would be perfect for anything slightly scary or mysterious. The notes have some kind of unison effect going on so theres kind of more than one pitch happening inside the note which adds to this effect. This would be perfect for building up tension in a scene. The sound also pulses in an interesting way. Not much going on with the GUI but theres nothing about this instrument i would really want to change. Great job

  • Interesting spacey pad sound

    Metallic, reverb drenched pad does conjure an otherworldly sense of space or outer space. Simple but highly affective.

  • A pad that sounds like it came from the Moon...

    The Moonshot pad is an interesting sound by itself, but I found it a lot harder to implement into a mix in comparison to David's other pad sounds. There's also a lot more sound buildup here. But still, good work!

  • Spacey pad

    This pad sound is cool and useful. It has a rich sound and it slowly evolves as you hold it. Unfortunately, the reverb is permanent, so you can't get rid of it, and a dry version of the sound is not provided. I would have preferred to at least have access to the dry sound so that I can apply my own effects. Filter cutoff and resonance controls are provided on the GUI. You might want to try tweaking the attack or release, but there's a reason those controls were omitted from the GUI: the samples all have a really long attack, so there's no way to shorten it, even from within the GUI. Unfortunately, that makes this sound a bit less playable.
