Atmosphere comes with a MASIVE 3.7 gig library with more than 1000 patches to be mixed and matched to over 1 million combinations. Three envelopes per layer for Pitch, Filter and Amplitude are available for use in this fully programmable piece of software. I would definitely love to have more exotic flute and string presets included in the next version of Atmosphere. Just the term "Atmosphere" itself screams for more ethnic-influenced instruments/sounds ranging from dreamy sitars to chinese violins.

$375

I LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE Atmosphere because of it's large GUI and it's colors are easy on the eyes. hey it's blue for Christ's sake! Users don't have to worry about flipping through screen after screen or clicking on a million drop down menus to figure out out to program sounds of their own. I find that extremely attractive and a blessing for those of us who aren't quite at a doctorate's level on synth programming.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Sound quality is superb. Actually Atmosphere was the first VST that truly put the whole hardware vs. software sound quality to bed. As much as I love my Triton, I'd have to admit that the pads and strings in Atmosphere literally renders Korg's offerings obsolete. Also Atmosphere offers a number of bells, synth leads, and evolving landscapes which were programmed using popular synths such as the Juno8 and Access Virus.

It's software....hasn't crashed on me yet. I've used it on both MAC and PC without any error.

OVERALL OPINION

I'd marry this bytch if I could. I could literally produce an entire album with Atmosphere alone....oh with the help of Stylus Remix for drums/percussion of course. I basically threw away most of my othe VST's simply to spend more time learning how to program Atmosphere while discovering new and interesting sounds while layering patches. If you're into film scoring, synthy hip hop, and electronic music then Atmosphere is definitely for you. It's definitely money well spent especially since you get GREAT SOUNDING patches right out of the box. Many vst's force you to come up with hit sounds on your own. This is definitely not the case for Atmosphere. Hope you'll decide to buy because you'll definitely enjoy this great product. Oh and don't try downloading it bytches. It's worth every penny spent.
