Forester 2022 from Leafcutter John is a donationware modular sound naturewalk

Leafcutter John would like to invite you for a walk in a forest full of generative notes and sounds – a playground of his musical world. And it’s just full of great stuff – a “living thing” you can try out for free / support via suggested donation.

This sound library lets you use 56 amps, 4 subs, and Lyndhurst Hall as your speaker system

Sure, you might not want more samples of drum machines, vintage synths, modular, and guitars. But Spitfire Audio are betting you might want them through 56 guitar amps, 4 subs, 4 levels of rigging, and one of the world’s largest recording rooms. Aperture is too ridiculous not to notice – and it’s free if you buy enough stuff this week (plus there’s a free demo).
