Thanks to everyone for giving this a listen the numbers have gone through the roof! Once the mod is released I should be able to get them up to download if that what people would want?

May I ask if you made those synths/sounds yourself?

Everything for P:A OST was made by me apart from a few extremely manipulated samples yes.

Awesome, I really like the ambient sounds :) Could you write a tutorial on how you designed them? I have a quite decent knowldedge of synthesis, so if you decided to write a tutorial(which I really hope you do) you don't have to hold back or explain what a cutt off button does for example.

Well many of the synth sounds originate various VST's starting with a basic preset and then arranging the oscillators and other values to create the right sound (metallic feels and such) then a variety of VST effects were used on top of those sounds.
In terms of a tutorial its doubtful i'll be doing one but i can let you know which VST were used and even share them but i wont be doing a tutorial, sorry.

Well any info or tips you can give me are welcome. Though instead of the vst you used I'd rather like to know what I have to do to get that metallic feel(and which effects you used). Most vst's are similar to each other so I think I'd be fine with that part.
