My Overall Impression: Lightning X3M is a huge collection of various short and snappy percussive sounds focused on the high range spectrum of music. Perfect for adding shimmer and drive, without taking up too much headroom in the mix. Lots of presets, good amount of round robins, ability to mix microphone options, and very light on RAM usage. Lightning X3M has become my high end heaven!

Why Lightning X3M?
Whenever you need to add extra drive or shimmer into your music, high range short percussive sounds is a great choice. Ticking, shakers and various short, snappy sounds in the high end spectrum can be played fast and add a lot of tension and energy, while still leaving a lot of headroom in the mix for melodies, themes, riffs, harmonies etc. That is why you often hear these driving high range percussion in film music, trailer music and soundtracks. If this is music you compose, then you should definitely take a look at Lightning X3M.
