So damn simple, yet still sounds great. Hard to believe this was done almost 15 years ago. Fantastic.

A synth with it own personality. Very nice. Thanks. It would be awesome, if it was easier to make impact and percussive sounds too. There's is a potential in the synth to this i believe. Just a suggestion. Lars Bo Hermansen

This is a sweet ambience creator to use in sound design, especially for looping room tones and for magic/tech fx. Nice work Mr. Scott, thank you!

I'd just like to applaud Timothy Dieden, at comment #42, for his use of the word "perturbulating". Also, great ensemble, I love it!

This is another simple gem of a download. Not only does it create very functional pads but it has inspired me to want to modify it. Yes, it may not be perfect, but it has the charm of a Reaktor ensemble -- something I want to tweak from the inside out.

Essential Reaktor ensemble.... Thanks Rick

4 are better than 3...had lost ice-pad, re-found it, forgot it (thus stupid post 63 here, after 2 before, blush), and read that I had 31° last summer in the attic. 40° now, so definitely the choice for tonight! Sounds not only ICY, but makes tooo melodical pieces chill. And weird. A good thing.

Found this a little late, Mr.Scott. (Should download new ensembles instead of writing long e-mails to Rrrrochester, maybe;-)? Brillant idea...something like this was missing here, thanks.

Really creates that cold cool feeling. Something I know I will use when this type of effect is required. Keep up the good work

Wicked sounding Rick. Versatile as well... I played around with swaping the sine OSC's for Sawtooth, Triangle, or whatever and it still sounds lush and eerie, but slightly different. My fav instrument in the library at the mo

Thanks so much; these are Alaska winter sounds-- sounds like the Aurora might make. Sounds such as a dark trail might contain on a night full of the aurora. Like it!

I have downloaded over 200 ens's from the library and Rick is by far my favorite builder. So weird, yet so usefull. Thanks Rick!
Georg Fries

under the roof in wet and damp heat (31°C at midnight) you can't probably imagine how well I like this now. Read your CM-columns as they come, always inspiring too. Now something to get my PC to actually cool down the room? If I_ll change place I'll take your enxembles with me.

Incredible perturbulating sounds. Excellent for ambient howling wind and vortex sounds. Rivals anything else I've seen for similar sounds. Great, great job.

what it does, it does really really well, although its palette is limited. I've pulled this out on various occasions when I'm looking for 'that' sound, and it seems to come up trumps. good job

Heath Rezabek

rick, a tremendous pad; produces sounds which are deep and rich and unfamiliar, and yet focused, structured, formed; not simply noise. the atmospherics at lower registers makes me wonder what a 'woopad', 'waterpad', 'stonepad' and 'firepad' would sound like! & to inspire the imagination is a great gift. wonderful! -aqaraza

This ensemble sound great! I really like the more abstract ambient sounds that IcePad does compared to more conventional types of synths. Very streamlined and uncluttered UI, yet there is is enough control to mutate the sound drastically.
