I love how instruments feel at their lowest volumes. You hear all the texture of the bow, the click of the keys, more of the overtones, more air. Playing in this fragile way is hard to control and can give you a lot irregularities and character.  Sometimes it makes the instrument almost hard to recognize and becomes it's own thing. Sometimes it becomes a sound that you feel more than hear.

It’s helpful to have a wide ranging toolkit for this with drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, winds, guitars, strings and oddball miscellaneous stuff that you can't quite put your finger on.

All combined, there's a big range of production possibilities here. It’s 67 patches in total. Works for many styles of music. It sounds organic, nuanced, full of character and as soft as it can be.

There are sixteen controls in four columns:

- Envelope - attack, sustain, decay, release

- Filter - high pass, low pass, reduce, degrade

- Drive - Tape Sat, Punch, Push, Limit

- Space - Verb, Delay Time, Repeats, Delay Vol
