: I'm looking for a selection of smooth pad sounds to be used in contemporary Christian music. Can someone tell me if any of the q-cards have a good selection like this? Or maybe where some can be downloaded. Thanks.

Roy, are you looking for pad sounds like the ones commonly used in Maranatha Praise or Vineyard Praise music? If so, the Sanctuary card may not cut it. I have it and the majority of sounds are organs and Ep's etc. The Pads, for the most part have lots of tinkly things. Not really there for Praise and worship. You might try the Vintage Synth card for more smooth foundational pads. A good representation of vintage Oberheim, Moog, Yamaha,and Roland sounds,etc. I've had good results programming my own though. It isn't hard. Just find a program that's close and experiment. By the way, much of the synth stuff on early Maranatha Praise series was done with Roland D-50, Korg M1 and the like. You might listen to some of these recordings for ideas.
