Within about an hour, I had two starts to tracks that I really like. On one, I had a gong/bell sound very much like a key sound in a popular piece from the Twin Peaks TV show. I like the controls and interface. It's great for tinkering. I would like to see them add a way to pitch down the synth oscillators in steps. There is a pitch control section but it is designed for modulating the pitch and the pitch parameter doesn't seem to have a way to step down or up by half steps. I might be missing some way to do it. But the quality of the sounds and the nice selection make me not worry to much about the pitch adjusting.

It is like day an night. Halfblood 2 is a very nice NI instrument. Fully featured, easy to use, and sounds great. I will invest some time to find the sounds that I can use in my productions. A considerable value.
It's a strange and charming sound.
I'm interested in folk music, medieval music, and use it to recreate that sound.
It is a valuable sound source in that sense because it is different from a beautiful sound and an attractive sound.
Nice surprise for me ! I love the way they play the intruments in strange ways resulting in mysterious and sometime scary sounds that perfectly fit my style of music. I just regret that the intrument is not full NKS.
