“The moment I ran Manipulator for the first time, I was hooked.”
Gil's first thoughts on Manipulator:
"From the moment I ran Manipulator for the first time, I was hooked. I typically don't like to create music with software instruments because I often find the workflow to be unintuitive, but Manipulator sounded so effortlessly good that I was instantly inspired to write something with it!
From smooth, buttery harmonies to crazy, glitched out modulated vocals, everything is possible with this plugin and it always sounds extremely musical. I feel like I haven't even scratched Manipulator's surface and can't wait to keep exploring it."
