Sampleson Sandstorm is a new evolving soundscape generator builder plugin based on various synthesis and sound source types. 

The developers of Sampleson have released interesting virtual instrument plugins in the recent past. Among other things, pianos or e-pianos based on synthesis technology and not on GBs on multi-samples. The advantage of this method is its storage efficiency.

With their plugin Alienize they have released, for the first time, an instrument that breaks new ground in their portfolio. It’s made for designing Sci-Fi underscores and ambients with simple mouse gestures. With Sandstorm, they now continue this series of unique virtual instruments.

First Impression

A creative plugin, certainly one that fits into the area of “special interest. I like the idea of generating soundscapes so quickly. However, I would have liked a little more control, especially for controlling the sound more in detail. To tweak the synthesis engines etc.
