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 FM 8 Legendary Collection by Nori Ubukata is a wonderfull sonic pallet of sounds and instruments that is suited to a wide range of musical styles. It is a one stop shop for all your Ethnic instruments and sounds that are wonderfully suited for Movie Soundtrack creation as all the sounds are vivid, clear and High Quality. There are also very cool bread and butter type sounds which helps you to use this bank for ALL your sounds without having to break your creativity FLOW searching for other sounds. I highly recommend you to purchase this bank as it’s sonic range and articulations is more than triple the worth of its current selling price. It also comes with a comprehensive manual which clearly helps you each step of the way, which is great for anyone entering the Music Production Scene with Native Instruments FM8…… I think this Bank ROCKS!!
