Puro (Finnish); a stream, brook.
Puro (Spanish); pure
Puro is all about atmosphere. It’s about modern cinematic textures and pads. It’s a search for beauty in ugly places. Built from bits and pieces of organic sounds Puro, like the water is a stream, is built to be constantly moving and evolving. And like a stream turns into a river and rivers run into lakes and oceans Puro grows from small to vast.
The 200 patches in Puro are divided into four categories:
NOISESCAPES (22), PADS + STRINGS (108), TEXTURES PLAYABLE (41), TEXTURES SOUNDSCAPES (29).
Puro also gives you 494 brand new soundsources for Omnisphere.

Beat.de magazine wrote a 4/5 review of Puro:
"These are monumental soundscapes dominated by the more than 100 pads and strings."
"This man from Finland knows how to do it. Puro offers powerful organic soundscapes that bear a unique signature that‘s different than many of the standard Spectrasonics products. Refreshingly alternative!"
