    Looking for a sound bed on top of which I could have a spoken voice leading people into relaxation and meditation type of thing.
    Is there a sample library that might do that? (I was thinking of Spitfire Evo's but maybe its not synthy enough, then I thought of Omnisphere, but thats $$$ for me right now...?)

    I think you know the kind of think I'm looking for - something interesting to keep it from being dull, but not too interesting to detract from spoken voice.

    Any ideas?

    The pads/synths in Age are awesome, but limited. Omnisphere also has some good stuff.

    All the pads from Korg M1 (original sounds and other libraries). Synth voices too.
    After many years of praticing here's the result

    There's always an excuse to buy Omnisphere trust me. Sometimes it's pads, other times it's arps, FX etc....

    Kontakt 3rd party libraries sound good but let's be honest here: This is Omnisphere's specialty :)

    Omnisphere 100%

    ... Alchemy would have been a contender too, but it's gone.

    I believe you still can get the Alchemy Player in the free stuff that comes with a copy of Computer Music magazine.

    What synths do you own? I would take a look at Joseph Hollo's sounds. He makes beautiful pads and stuff for different synths. Even if you have to buy a synth (i.e. Hive from U-He) it might be cheeper in the long run than buying sampled synth sounds instead of the synths itself. http://www.sound.artenuovo.com/index.html

    Thanks for the input everyone. I checked the stuff mentioned above out. Must admit that Blue Zone on Kontakthub looks promising. I wish I had the excuse (and the money) to go for Omnisphere ! I know it would be good at it, but...
    (I already own Alchemy CM and KorgM1 vst actually... might give them a closer look)

    I didn't realized Air Xpand was available in non-AAX formats. I always kind of loved that thing for the cheesy-yet-great '90s rompler vibe it can impart. Perfect for spa/meditation music. dzilizzi, you might've inspired me to instantiate that bad boy tomorrow...
