Review The Voice of Gaia: Francesca from Soundiron (currently 50% OFF)
The stand out for me is the tone of Francesca voice which is inspiring and unique. Plenty of instruments including vocal phrases, ohs, ahhs and so much more.
Took me a minute to understand how to program/use the sequencer. Not a big deal but thought it was important to note.
