    Hey @rolnor, I'm curious about the presets you found, would you be able to share the names?

    I'll have a look and check if I find similar ones ⚡️

    I'm also interessed in Nature Sounds.

    The noise oscillator is your friend here, as with most thunder/wind/surf/misc. nature effects; but Massive's PCM-based palette of noises makes it unusually well suited to these sorts of sounds. Here's a patch I made based on this a number of years back for a theater piece I got hired to sound design for one scene where a house collapses (not quite thunder per se, but it may fit the bill)--

    Case in point, this uses the 'paper crumpling' noise table playing at a reduced rate with a bit of clipping distortion into the Scream filter, which adds its own "hair"; and topped off with a little more distortion and a tiny amount of chorus, mostly there for stereo breadth.
