Don't buy anything!! Haha, just kidding! You won't be able to resist these amazing sounds. I started out with just the Abstract Vibes (and I already own MANY vibraphone vsts), and now here I am...+4 more Karanyi vsts later with eyes on purchasing more in the near future. Again, I have a TON!! of other vsts, but there is definitely something unique going on with the Karanyi sounds. Warm, organic, expansive; even the "digital synths" evoked so many ideas as I listened to the demos. Thanks for lending your voice to the many products out there Karanyi Sounds! You are unique and very much needed!!
