I finally had the chance to download and install my awesome winning prize …Collision FX, created by Sound Yeti, and wow, it is everything they say it is. This instrument is a major cinematic tool! To learn the interface, I decided to of course load presets, and delve within the many parameters available. I read the manual, as I always do, as not to miss any details because this is not your average synthesizer interface. This instrument seems to LIVE AND BREATH on FX processed side-chains. Now I finally understand the “innovation” I was listening to within the demo material.
It came like clockwork, I loaded and individually “tweeked” one instrument after the next until I finally made my first “Multi” instrument. I dub this sound, “LocoMotion 2“. It’s an Ambient Cinematic Soundtrack within itself. All synced up, although I can hear that I need to adjust a few attack parameters for good measure, and better “timing play-ability“. The next soundtrack I compose will include this, and Lunaris, as I believe we have a perfect combination at this point Enjoy a new sound creation I call LocoMotion 2, using Collision FX, with no processing, and played Improvisational of course 😉
What an exciting last few days. Fire season officially ended here in Oregon, and to celebrate, some much needed outdoor rest and relaxation was in order. I loaded up my truck with the necessary gear, and sweet Miss Bonnie, my beautiful German Shepard happily accompanied me to the great outdoors to share some time around the campfire, and to blaze a few forest trails. After two days out, we decided to head back down the mountain, and make our way back into the world once again.

Upon my return, I checked my e-mail first thing to catch up on missed messages, only to find I was one of the selected prize winners of Sound Yeti’s brand new Kontakt instrument: Collision FX – Cinematic Scoring Tool! I was ecstatic! How lucky this week has been …wandering in the forest with my Sweet Bonnie, then coming home to an awesome new addition to my sonic arsenal. Wow!

I’ve listened to the demo’s and studied the instruments architecture, and this is an amazing and innovative instrument. I am still in the process of downloading Collision FX at the time of this writing, as it is a whopping 14.72 GB. But I can hardly wait to delve into this beauties sonic abilities. Being an Ambient Sound Designer, you can expect new patches from AmbieticA for Collision FX in the future for sure.
