Thanks, Soundquest.  I was for years recording on a Tascam CD player, but now I'm using a Tascam DR-100 MKIII Linear PCM Recorder for the master.  It's a handy little unit that I can have and watch right at the instruments.

This is mainly PEK doing all the the stringy sequences, lap dulcimer solo, low-tune guitar at end, "upright bass" and percussion.   The Pro 2 helps with human like voices, locusts, hawk, birds and wind.

Amazing effect.  I would have believed that was a strummed string instrument.

Thanks Sacred Synthesis.  The PEK seems well-suited for plucky strings.  Actually, come to think of it, those are my favorite patches to make.   

Don't know if I'll ever really get it perfect, but I want to make a realistic harp (like the big concert hall type).  I've done some import of waveforms from actual instrument samples, but there's that certain "resonance" a harp emits from the wood body that's just hard to duplicate from too-short a waveform snipet.   Closest I got thus far was with the PEK and just playing around with the various waveforms by ear.    Same struggle for me exists with acoustic piano. From a variety of synths,  I've had some luck with the Nord Lead 4 since it has on-board wave forms for piano- and that's sort of Nord's bag anyway.   Recently I got some purchase patches for the Summit that have piano, grand piano.  Not bad, but not really perfect either.

Really cool PEK sound design here - care to share some tips on how you're getting these sounds?

Thanks proteus-ix.     Really the magic here is the PEK itself.   It's really good for plucky strings.  Try some of the digital shapes- which is what I used here.  I have previously used imported wave shapes of an actual dulcimer before.  Its not the easiest process -but doable.  I have a video in this form which explains how.
