This was actually a sound test back in December 2016 for some VSTi I had purchased during a sale, as well I wanted to test the new Male to Female vocal process I had developed.

The "Take them by surprise" and the female vocals were both done by me. Male to Female vocals are actually very easy if you're familiar with using EQ and Autotune.
If you need autotune software I highly recommend Kerovee V1.53 over the newer versions available. Reason being the new versions reset to init values on export- very annoying!

As far as the VSTi I tested in this piece, Native Instrument's Damage, Molekular, and Kinetic Metal.

To be honest this track didn't get the best out of Damage's strong points, but I needed to test how well it would work with something like dubstep or metal. Damage is more niche for orchestral and soundtrack work.
All the Drums in this are Damage.

Molekular is amazing. The modulation functions are extremely confusing for a while, but once you start getting the hang of it you can do some pretty extreme sound design and textures.
For this test I only used some tweaked and default Presets.

Kinetic Metal for some reason gets a lot of runtime errors when editing presets, it's honestly annoying enough that I rarely touch it and even go as far as backing up my projects before having anything to do with it.
I ended up removing it from this test completely, but I feel the need to make mention of it.

The other instruments are 3xOsc, Shreddage Guitar 2, Harmor, Harmless. Basic stuff really.
