sonimus – soneq vst [download]

  • Sonimus SonEq 1.1
  • I’ve been a humble fan of Resound‘s music since the late ’90s, and became an even bigger fan of the weekly tips section of his website.

On this volume the producers from the so-called ‘farmer’ region Twente make it clear they’re not the simple hillbillies that people often mistake them for.   […]
