I love storm sounds. In New York we get some massive thunder from time to time. I like to turn off any TV or music playing, sit by the window and listen to the rumble. Rain and wind sounds are great in music. I often use white noise to simulate wind. There are sample libraries of this stuff but if you want a proper VST which simulates rain or wind well now you an have one. Audiowind and Audiorain do just exactly that. There’s even the almighty awesome random button. The only caveat is the price: 149 Euro each launch price going up to 245 Euro or 399 Euro for both. Without a doubt for weather channels, commercial producing studios and filmakers it’s worth it. For a solo electronic musician looking for a storm maybe not.
