I'm gauging the "lay of the land" as for as sound synthesis goes, for the purpose of designing new tech-based computer sound textures (think Matrix computer textures only in the bare-bones principal of how they're organic and evolve, but I want to develop something very different than that - going for something more smoother organic, sexy, and musical - maybe a little gritty but not much). Not just to design computer sounds, but servers/computers, tech drones, etc.
I'm not asking for advice on how to process hard drives etc or what sound library to buy. Frankly, the sound I need to achieve is one which no sold library will really touch (or it has the risk of also sounding canned by using library elements). Soundmorph's beep library is in the right direction but not nearly what I'm after, although I surely am investing in as one my toolsets to also get the beep generator. This is strictly a question about sound synthesis tools to investigate - creation from the ground up.
I have a very particular sound signature in my head already, I'm just seeking what fresh and inspirational methods may be out there to look into to venture beyond the "standard" beep and computer library sounds as far as source-material synthesis goes. Something to give an exciting creative spark, that kind of spark you have when you're got a new sound toy to play with and see what wild things it can do. I love to have a fresh perspective on these sorts of things. Also I do have a MIDI keyboard setup too so I definitely plan on taking a hands on approach with this.
In gauging what's out there, there seems to be a few things which float to the surface for this type of "job": Omnisphere, Komplete, GRM Tools or Iris (okay, more DSP than synthesis in the case of Iris and GRM). They all seems very inspiring, but if you had to pick only one for the type of job I described that you could actually invest in, what would your personal opinion be?
Any recommendations from your own experiences as to what may be well-suited for this type of source material synthesis (again, to generate inspirational raw source material from which the final sounds will actually be hand-designed in PT), or what to stay away from? Or in the spirit of the Komplete toolset if you do recommend that, any specific add-on packs (through NI or third parties) worth investigating along the lines of these needs I'm after?
Really seeking input from others who may know these toolsets in-depth to gauage what may be a wise investment as far as the best bang for the buck, and contrarily, which ones may not be all to useful for what I'm after.
Open to any and all ideas! Thanks so much!
