  1. Chris Watson certainly comes in the most beautiful and interesting places. Very curious how all those locations sound. But why is available in 48khz only? The kontakt ‘patches’ don’t really sound all that special in the demo video.
    Nice idea anyway.

  2. Well the patches sound pretty special in the instrument…perhaps if you are so curious about the locations you should buy it and spend a weekend tweaking it before lending a jaded sneer. It’s an extraordinary instrument, incredibly flexible and the source location material is stunning – you can remove the pitched samples and just listen to the atmos – and it’s simply fascinating.

    Best Kontakt instrument for some time in my books…
