Hello Wired, thank you for the comment. There are many different types of bells/Kalimbas/Steel Thumb Drums in the world and if you compare between Cloud City and Ambient Dreams, you'll notice they are quite different from each other as well as they were made by 2 different sound designers over 3 years apart.

I recorded 2 Steel Thumb Drums for Cloud City V1 (which is NOT a GM preset by the way) while Bob recorded very different bells and a number of them are actually performances he did, none of them are anywhere close to the stark basic nature of any GM presets.

If they sounds seem similar and that upsets you, I'm sorry, but to me they are very different in tone and application. If you play a sequence with of library, I don't think you will find a similar replacement in the other library to play the same part.

Cloud City was aimed more at dance/edm/chill producers with 808 Sub Basses mixed with Bells, over 25 percussion instruments and drums while Ambient Dreams is designed flat out for Ambient music producers or anybody that loves calm, healing sounds. I see very little similarities between them....

That makes them as Un-GM as possible which makes me very happy. I have severe allergic reactions to anything of mine considered GM.

Kind regards,

John Lehmkuhl
