You’ve just purchased a new plug-in or suite of plug-ins and want to go about exploring them, testing them out, seeing what they are capable of, finding out what kind of sounds can be created.


Do you have “go-to sounds” that you immediately try out as a signal source for your new processors? ¬†Perhaps you even have a session that has those sounds cut on to tracks and you just have to instantiate the plugs.


What I go to:  tonally-based ambiences, noise-based ambiences, single transient sounds, pattern or sequence of transient sounds, plain human voice, animal vocalizations, breaths.


Looking forward to the collective insight of the community.
