ARRAKIS : ART OF SOUND DESIGN
If you have poor preset ( sound ) quality, you start applying new layers to cover it up.
The melodies do not sound good and you lose your inspiration quickly.
After all, ONE GOOD sound is enough.
Just one interesting sound can change the course of your work.
Hope you will find many of these "special" sounds in ARRAKIS library

Viper has features that the Virus does not have and vice versa. But as long as a Virus TI patch uses the same parameters that Viper has, the conversion should be successful.
WHERE TO BUY THE VIPER VST Instrument ?
NOTE : Viper VST Instrument is not part of the ARRAKIS soundbank.
You can buy this instrument on the official website
What does "ARRAKIS VIPER EDITION" mean?
All 128 presets has been re-edited to get a very close match.
Some presets has been enhanced with effects that Virus Ti does not have.
Just like "Shimmer Reverb"
Be aware that the conversion is not always 100% accurate due to Viper and the Virus TI being two different synths.
In the end the effects are impressive and most of the patches sounds exactly the same as Virus Ti
!!! REMEMBER THAT " ARRAKIS VIPER EDITION IS NOT WORKING WITH ACCESS VIRUS TI !!!

DUNE ( Novel )
Dune is set in the distant future amidst a feudal interstellar society in which various noble houses control planetary fiefs. It tells the story of young Paul Atreides, whose family accepts the stewardship of the planet Arrakis. While the planet is an inhospitable and sparsely populated desert wasteland, it is the only source of melange, or "spice", a drug that extends life and enhances mental abilities. Melange is also necessary for space navigation, which requires a kind of multidimensional awareness and foresight that only the drug provides. As melange can only be produced on Arrakis, control of the planet is a coveted and dangerous undertaking. The story explores the multilayered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as the factions of the empire confront each other in a struggle for the control of Arrakis and its spice.

LFO & ARP
Many of my presets use a large amount of LFO + ARP to control various parameters. So that the sounds are not static.
Controlling parameters doesn't make sense if you don't know what you want to achieve. Without going into details - the end results are amazing!
A native life-form of the Planet of Arrakis, the Sandworm of Dune is a gigantic creature.
The Sandworms are born in a planet which is basically an infinite desert. It has very little water and the Sandworms have evolved themselves to live without directly ingesting it. Water, as a result of thousands of years of evolution, has become poisonous to the sandworms.
