SOLO SOUND DESIGN
All of these sounds were created entirely from the original session recordings. No synths were used in the designing/making of these sounds.
SOLO from Audio Imperia consists of 13 solo instruments. The design idea here was to create pads that would represent each of these instruments, hence, 13 pads. The trick was to make each one "familiar" while at the same time transforming the solo source recordings into something else entirely.
That's kind of always the trick though.
