By Groove mgz said to put her in the driver seat for good!
Solina.smp (Reason Factory Sound Bank / NN19 Sampler Patches / Synth and Keyboard )
Just twist the sound a bit in NN-XT, adjust freq and attack according to your taste and preferences. You will get a trashy but soft mysterious sound. I used this sound for base line on my track YEAH from the album Dream. Actually the whole track is based upon that sound. It really caught the vibe that I was looking for.
MiniMoog pulse.smp (Dirty Ol' Relics / NN19 patches )
An interesting sounding moog that I edited some compressor and phaser on and used it at the end in my song YEAH from the Album Dream. Clean and dirty at the same time. A sound that goes through the texture and stands out in a haunting and melodic way.
VNS Trem.sxt (Orkester Sound Bank / Strings / Violins (VNS))
A surprisingly beautiful viola tremolo sound that builts the atmosphere for my song Million Years from the album Dream. So simple and so special, just like I wanted it.
VK Rock Low Organ (KMS vintage keys V2 / NNXT presets)
A warm nice organ. This was also used in my song Million Years. I like organs and this one has that extra spice to it.
Grand Piano (Reason Factory Sound Bank / NN-XT Sampler Patches / Piano)
This is a really good piano sound. This sound is like a base I return to over and over. Sometimes I double it with other piano sounds, change it or tweak it for variation. But it's a really good sound just as it is. I used this sound on my last two albums The Need To Destroy and Dream.
