I'm after cotton-wool pads. The kind that go BEHIND other sounds in a New Agey track so they're adding a bit of 'stuffing' to the track, if you don't notice them you're not missing anything (but they're still adding 'stuffing', you'd notice the lack of them if they weren't there even though you're not always consciously hearing them!) but if you DO, they sound nice! Examples are HERE.... (first sound after the gong)
All the way through, any/all of those sounds really. I've tried programming them on VSTs and my skills definitely suck! Tried downloading a ton of things that call themselves pads but they're all Star Wars rayguns and trance leads. Anyone know of a source of just those kind of sounds, either as soundfonts, or as presets on a VST that doesn't cost hundreds of bucks/British pounds? Can modify existing pads, just too dang thick to get the hang of creating my own. I follow all the instructions in YouTube vids, I get seal f@rts, they get lovely sounds, no idea why! Just a nice box-of-chocolate background pad collection.....
