Nori Ubukata (programmer of the bank) : "Only FM can produce the rich, precise instruments included in the Legendary Collection Soundset. The FM8 offers some possibilities that the original DX series did not. I used all these extra features to create the instruments over years, and I hope they will prove usefull and enjoyable for a lot of musicians "

" The LeLotusBleu FM8 Legendary Collection sound bank by Nori Ubukata is one of the best I heard for a very long time. Great programming.
In my opinion, Noritaka understands his job.
In these times of thousands of sound banks available, Nori's work is standing in the forefront. "
