Spotlights an integrated patch browser that makes it easy to store, sort, and find exactly the sound you are looking for. Patch attributes such as class, genre, character, and name allow your sounds to be stored in a musically meaningful way, as opposed to just indexed as numbers. Any and all attributes can be removed or re-assigned as your sound collection grows. This plugin comes with over 100 professionally programmed sounds to get you started. Each one can be endlessly tweaked and modified to rapidly build your customized sound collection.
