I’ve been exploring the Vital software synthesizer a lot lately and I’m constantly blown away by . the quality of sound, flexibility in the endless amount of modulation, and how much fun it actually is to program! Best of all, you can get it for FREE! There are also paid and subscription option that offer more features.

I have a collection of various sounds I have made covering atmospheric pads, deep basses, percussive sounds, and just straight up experimental soundscapes. There are 15 presets that are free for you to use however you see fit (would greatly appreciate you giving Echo Haus a production credit if you do use any of these sounds in your music). Whether you need a starting point to find some inspiration, want to explore the capabilities of the synth, or just want to use them as is in your music its all there for free. *IF* you would like to make a donation to help support these kind of projects, you can send that to https://paypal.me/echohaus

If this get a good response, then I will definitely be making more sound packs in the future! – Enjoy! – Echo Haus

My name is AJ. I lived my life to this date in the Chicagoland area and I have a deep-rooted obsession with music and sound. From playing in experimental bands as a kid, trying to mutate the sound of my guitar into anything but a guitar, to venturing out on my own now and collaborating with other artists. The element I really fell in love with was creating live soundtracks over silent horror and sci-fi movies! It first started with my band Braille Night. We would play absurdly loud ambient music in the upstairs of a coffee house for hours. One of the members came up with the idea of using a silent movie to direct the feeling of the music. And now a decade + later I'm still doing that frequently, mostly in collaboration with Comfort Station here in Chicago for their summer series "Silent Films and Loud Music". Sound was only the beginning for me though. The past couple years I have gone done the path of video synthesis, VJing, and programming stage lighting. Most notably for Lorelei Dreaming, where I have spent hours synchronizing lights to emphasize the mood of the music and Lorelei herself as she entrances the audience with her voice and presence, and manipulate video as a live performance jamming along to the music and lights. What does the future hold? I want to take my experiences, skills, and passions to the next level. Put out more music. Work on a soundtracks for current movies, shorts, video games, or what-have-you. Lend my patience and knowledge to programming stage lights for other bands. Basically, I want eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff!
