Atmospheric sound bank for Xen-Arts FMTS2

32 ambient and atmospheric patches for the Xen-FMTS2 virtual synthesizer

The sounds included range from textures to dense, pulsating polyrhythmic pads, to tuned percussion. Some patches have that characteristic FM buzz while others avoid that. I created this bank for my own study and enjoyment. Note: this synth is now discontinued.
