My Orchestra of ASMR Triggers

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that having ASMR sounds is pretty important to making ASMR music…So my first idea is to record ASMR sounds that I can then program to my MIDI keyboard. I’m looking at it like an orchestra of ASMR triggers; and my “orchestra instruments” include whispering, soft tapping, leather jacket noises, chess pieces rolling around and more.
