Where does the sound of the pad come from ?
I love it


Hi there @Deep2House

Not exactly a pad sound going on here, it’s a bass & stabs sounds which are used for adding melodic content to the demo track for the tutorial. Can’t tell if @Protoculture used presets or not but those sounds are all coming from Sonic Academy ANA 2 Software Synth Plug-in :smile:

Thx for the answer, I just have to buy ANA 2 :wink:

All presets from ANA 2… can’t remember if its the factory presets or one of the expansions though.
