Novation Peak demo - Himalaya Soundset Part 2

video upload by Soundsauca

Part 1 here

"And so to Part 2 of the Himalaya project by Michael/Soundsauca. This half features more EPs, basses and leads, but also follows on with some more signature Soundsauca pads and atmospheres. 128 patches officially, and another 28 outtakes and revisions. (156)

The sounds are always made first with a great deal of care, everything else is secondary. More info is available on my website:

Sorry it's so long but I did it for a few reasons:
– I like to tell a story through sounds that touch me visually. I considered timestamps but I wasn't sure it would work with that intention.
– There's no ambiguity about what they all sound like.

I offer the sounds at a reasonable price IMHO as this takes serious time. But more than that, it's my own sensory documentation of my time with a particular synth. My playing skills aren't the best (nor are my hotchpotch videos) – there's fantastic videos elsewhere from virtuoso performers and great influencers. Shamefully I'm not up to speed with every genre under the sun (I stopped being cool when my kids were born!) I know what I like though, if others do, that's a bonus. Taken as a whole I hope it all stacks up.

Recorded at 48khz, -6dB (Peak Setting) into Logic Pro-X via an RME UFX. Peak volume knob at 12 O'clock. Fades are used to transition between sounds, but the sounds are pure Peak. No compressors, limiters, EQ or other secret sauce were harmed in the making of this demo;)

I assume that these will also be compatible with a Novation Summit, but I have no access to one so I cannot confirm."
