If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Ambient White

ORGANIC SOUNDS

As its name implies, Ambient White covers the lighter end of the ambient spectrum, focusing on beautiful, peaceful, melodic, harmonious, and natural sounds. Ambient Black, the second VI in this series, will cover the opposite end of the ambient spectrum.

The vast majority of the sounds used in the creation of Ambient White were derived from organic sources: found sounds and audio recordings subjected to extreme sound design techniques, prepared and/or heavily processed musical instruments, and sounds recorded in natural environments. The few synth sounds that were used were also processed with sound design techniques, and/or combined with various organic sounds and instruments.

The end result is a product that combines acoustic, humanistic, and electronic elements to produce an organic-sounding virtual musical instrument.

INSTRUMENT PATCHES

Ambient White features over 250 different instrument patches and combinations (almost 7.5GB of uncompressed WAV data *4GB compressed), divided into several categories:

1. Multi-Layered Instruments
2. Pads & Atmospheres
3. Melodic Instruments
4. Percussive Instruments
5. Bass Instruments
6. Looped Instrument Phrases
7. Effects & Textures

The most complex instrument patches in Ambient White are the Multi-Layered Instruments, which were created using combinations of patches from the other six categories. These patches are arranged by their basic type, using the following prefixes:

ATMOS Layered Atmospheres and Pads
BASS Layered Bass Instruments
FX Layered Effects & Textures
LOOP Layered Looped Phrases
MELO Layered Melodic Instruments
PERC Layered Percussive Instruments

IN DETAIL

Multi-Layered Instrument Patches

Many of the Multi-Layered Instrument patches consist of multiple evolving atmospheres, chordal and/or melodic components, and/or looped phrases. For best results, try playing these patches with one finger, in octaves, or in fifths. This doesn’t apply to Layered PERC patches, which in general don’t have any pronounced melodic or harmonic content; playing multiple notes at a time with these Layered patches can produce some interesting polyrhythmic patterns.

Effects & Textures

The Effects & Textures category includes a number of patches that were mainly designed to work in tandem with other types of patches. These patches were designed with that in mind.

Percussive Instruments

The Percussive Instruments include several different acoustic and electronic drum kits. There’s also a selection of tuned hand drums, cymbals and gongs, and other percussive sounds.

Pads & Atmospheres

Many of the Pads & Atmospheres also include chordal components. When trying these patches for the first time, it’s probably best to play them with one finger or in octaves. You can then experiment with playing different intervals, depending on the level of harmonic complexity you’re looking for.

Melodic and Bass Instruments

The Melodic and Bass Instruments are mainly single-note patches. However, a few of these patches also few have some underlying harmonic content, and can be used as Pads.

Looped Instrument Phrases

The Looped Instrument Phrases include simple repeating patterns and some more-complex patterns created by mixing multiple loops together. Many of the loops lock to tempo, but some do not; this was done intentionally, in order to add an element of randomness and unpredictability to some of the patches. Looped Instrument Phrases should be played like the Pads & Atmospheres, using solo notes or octaves for less-complex patterns and different intervals for more experimental and harmonically-dense effects.
