Amazing sounds

I make horror story podcasts for well-known online platforms and Amber's tools are perfectly suited to create dissonance and atmospheres of tension at the right moment in the story. It has nothing to envy of other similar products and I can even say that I don't need more.


I work as a composer and re-recording mixer. I can confirm that I am now using this on my scores. This closely resembles the apprehension engine from Mark Korven. I am surprised more people aren't talking about this. Keep up the great work guys.

Thanks Teddy, we're so pleased to hear this!

Another great instrument!

The news of Amber's release appeared in my inbox as I was prepping to work on a documentary about an infamous psychiatric hospital. Good timing! It is well designed and sounds great. FYI: It is possible to swap in your own samples!
