Re: THE BEST INSTRUMENT TO HAVE IN AMBIENT MUSIC?????

I recently picked up Exhale from Output, the vocal synthesizer. Amongst everything else mentioned in this thread it's pretty ripe for ambient type things.

That said, so is anything else really.

Omnisphere, but then what does that say... as in: what genre would it not work for?

Then, again, even I can cobble together some nice ambient drone sounds using Bazille, Blue2, Serum, Diva, Predator, Thor, and probably Massive. I read a quote recently on photographic cameras: the best camera is the one you have with you. Analog waveforms, chords, LFO, and resonant filter seems like most of what you need (depending on sub-genre, people can get so finicky these days). And a sampler. Kontakt is the way to go there, which technically includes Exhale, as well as Heavyocity as they run within that platform.

My guys favorite instruments are a field recorder and a synth.
xoxos Steam, NI Absynth, Omnisphere, Kontakt (with any suiting library), HG Fortune synths (R.I.P) or any other synth really.

I just remembered that I'm still upset that Harmor is not available on Mac.

If you can play a bass in a slow mellow manner that can help. If not just use a sample.
