Quote: "Music is not just my job, it is my passion.
When I approach a project it is vital to use the right tools.
Working with Rob Papen always makes my creative process so much more easier.
The quality of the Explorer III bundle is by far one of the best Virtual Instrument bundles out today.
Predator and Blue are both Instruments I use heavily in all my projects.
They give me the freedom to really explore a sound and make it stand out from the rest.
I recommend this bundle for any producer."
