  1. Not as free as we're made to believe.

    Before you can download this critter they require that you register with your name and e-mail address. And would optionally like to know our company and phone number too.

    Added up to the fact that this is a pretty substandard sound effect I'm skipping this one.

  2. Whoosh Machine is dope. Downloaded it a couple of weeks ago. I also bought the Evil Fish 303 from . It sounds amazing! Super creative and useful.

  3. It's all good – I'll gladly give my email to someone who makes dope instruments for Ableton and posts them for us to download. I gave my email like 20 times to AfroDJMac who makes cool racks too. Keep em comin!
