We have an odd thing here... we have a Spring Bank (public) holiday here in the UK and it's, errmmm, the end of Spring. Spring starts here in March the something or other but we, ermmm, have a have a Spring public holiday in, ermmm, May just about when Summer starts... or should start, weather permitting.

The UK, Great Britain, Britain, Briton (or in America, 'Ingerland'!!!) - whatever you choose to call it is a stunningly beautiful country - small but perfectly formed. The landscape changes almost every 20 miles and some places can simply take your breath away ... north Wales, Bath, where HS Towers is situated in the gorgeous Vale Of Glamorgan, the Lake District, northern England, Scotland --- simply stunning...

When the weather is right. And there's the problem - we live right on the cusp or two weather systems so it can be a bit (well ... actually, a lot) erratic and unpredictable - a bit of a bugger actually.

But whatever, it was the Spring Bank Holiday here today and a lovely sunny day (until the rain came!) and also Memorial day in the US so I thought I'd do a little special to while away the time ...

The sound comes from HS Tower's resident Dotcom analogue modular...

Three voltage controlled oscillators, one generating a sawtooth, the other a ramp wave and the third VCO producing a swirly PWM, all set an octave apart then through the Clipper for some subtle distortion then into the Fixed Filter Bank and onto the VCS3 filter for some more non-linear distortions. And the delight is that the oscillators don't quite track and one of them wobbles a bit because of a dirty switch (I should get it fixed but I find quite endearing) so it all very 'organic' and random.

It's a big, thick sound that has a lot of applications from fruity basses to smooth pads, strong leadlines etc and at £3, it's a steal.

Great stuff as always. I just buy all your products. It's always great sounding and so affordable. And you're a funny guy too. It's always good to get a newsletter from you. Makes me laugh and then I buy. LOL



just picked up your spring special - excellent sounds, as usual!


You are a continued joy.
My purchase of Kontakt continues to pay dividends with developers like you who mine the esoteric end of sounds.


You make such amazing sounds ! Truly inspiring, from a very gifted sound designer.


Your libraries are great fun and always sound superb. I am liking this one - strong sounds and the simple user interface is good to use.


You never fail to dissapoint. Exelent sounds at afforbale price


I got you newsletter and just had to dive in. What's not to like? I think I have nearly everything you have have made even from the days of the S5000. I probably had a load of your sounds with my old S1000


I had to buy this as soon as I heard about it. It looks very good, sounds very good (I really like the audio demo) and its cheap. Its a no brainer.


I now officially hate you! I buy everything you people create and just when I think I am safe, you bring this out. But at 3UKP it's hard to resist. Fantastic as ever. Keep up the good work for us lot who can't afford to be spending mad prices of sound library. I don't know how you do it. Always top quality.


OMG I would kill for that your modular of yours. Beautiful. I guess this is the nearest I'll ever get to it so thanks.


What a wonderfully thick sound. Gonna see me using this A LOT. Thanks


I half wish I hadn't listened to the sample because I'm totally Memorial Day special satiated.

Forget about the price, which is like half a sandwich - the sound is killer!

Hollow Sun is a blessing. It's a no brainier to get this one.
