Heavyocity Intimate Textures
The textures are a cool idea, but these recordings are scratchy in a harsh and unpleasing way for my ears. Many of them are also on the busy side for me. The other stuff, the whole processing strings through distortion, compression, gating and sequencing just sounds awful to to me. It just sounds so gimmicky. While I can get some use out of the basic texture patches (so long as I EQ them), I do regret the purchase
I recently figured out the slight scratchiness and slight harshness is what makes Heavyocitys Intimate Textures stand out. They provide a surprise element in a composition, makes it a bit more sharp, and add color by that. Especially to the soft stuff, they do a wonderful surprise contrast. But must be used in moderation.
