Just released on patchpool: Diversity 2 for Diversion

Diversity 2 contains 103 patches including 3 variations for the unique (broken link removed) by Dmitry Sches. As with the update version 1.3 Diversion was enabled to play samples, both in normal sampling- and granular mode, this soundset contains 1.35 Gigabytes of samples, half of which were created especially for this set, the other half borrowed from other patchpool libraries.

Organic and electronic textures and soundscapes, vocal textures, field recordings and acoustic instruments like woodwinds, brass, cello, guitars and chromatic/achromatic percussion instruments meet digital oscillators, by intermodulating these sources via ring modulation and FM synthesis new sounds are born, which can be diverse to the extreme. Ethereal textures and angelic whispers meet dark and disconcerting drones, vivid sequences meet minimalistic rhythms, warm pads clash with cold metallic sounds, pristine glass textures are absorbed by surreal and futuristic soundscapes, expressive leads are counterpointed with noises from another sound dimension.

Besides the sample content dozens of new single-cycle waveforms were created in- and outside of Diversion to expand the sonic palette of this library, complex modulation routings were used to create animated and expressive sounds usable for a wide variety of musical styles.

All patches have the x/y-pad assigned, many also use Aftertouch. This enables the Diversionist to interact with the sounds and shape them expressively.

The samples are embedded in the presets, so there is no need to install a separate sample folder. As in some patches a sample is used twice (e.g. by layering sampling and granular modes), the installed library size (1.96 GB) is larger than the actual size of the sample content (1.35 GB). If you want to use the samples outside Diversion (please respect the licence agreement when doing so) or store them in your Diversion library, just save the wavs in Diversion’s sample editor.

All demos in were produced entirely with Diversion using only patches from Diversity Vol. 2, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the master outputs. Some volume automation was applied if several instances of Diversion were used in a demo.

Re: Coming soon on patchpool: Diversity 2 for Diversion

Improvising with a new patch named Windy Pad:

EDIT:
I actually remixed that demo and layered the pad with another new patch, named Crystal Scape. so now we have Crystal Wind :)
 
The finishing line for this set seems pretty close now, if my inspiration doesn't suddenly leave me or ISIS kidnaps me, this set should be released some time next week, any fencesitters should get off their fences soon, if they want to save some cash.

I updated the specs in the first post of this thread, all patches are done, now I have to go through them all again for some further finetuning, finish the PDF/patchlist and then release it, so it's going to take only a few more days.
