When I design sounds and I'm thinking about vibes, I think about colours and all of the sounds that are in this bank remind me of the color teal. I really like to make dreamlike sounds, I think it appeals to the imagination of the audience and the Nord Wave 2 just makes it really easy to capture that so I hope the sounds will inspire you
