Thrumming Textures: Pads

Pads created from Dan Keen's thrumming textures.

The story

Dan Keen’s awesome electric and acoustic guitar thrumming textures served as the basis for resampling. These were then mangled through various effects to create 5 synth pad sounds which aim to capture a real sense of movement and texture.

  • Another beautiful edition to thrumming

    This is another beautiful edition to Dans thrumming series. i wasn't as familiar with this one as i was with acoustic or electric but giving it ago just now got me really inspired. Unlike acoustic and electric which have pretty unpredictable rhythms, this one has more of a straight forward rhythm which will make it easier to fit into already established tracks. The thrumming sounds amazing, evolving and interesting, never feeling like its just looping. The GUI is also very well done with great control. Eventually ill make something with only thrumming instruments, i feel like this will be so interesting. we owe dan much thanks for these instruments

  • A horror synth at your fingertips

    This instrument seems very versatile and it will not disappoint you. You will find lots of options inside for you to play around and create a sound that will perfectly match your prefered atmosphere. I noticed a small problem though. If you hold a note for a long time, the sample automatically stops, and it doesn't even trigger a release sample - it just stops immediately. This shouldn't be a big concern though because for such a case you can retrigger it with a big release and no one would really notice.

  • A new take on an old favorite!

    These are some huge, inspiring pads and keys sounds. The Photosynthesis engine gives you tons of control over the sounds, and the sound source is rich and wonderful. It's worth noting that each note requires 6 voices of polyphony on some of the instruments, so it's pretty easy to run out and experience voice stealing if you don't adjust the polyphony setting. Even so, this is a tiny detail and this is a great and inspiring library!

  • Thrums? more like Stuns

    Stunning resampling work, Great textural layers to build out any mix. A few pads here and there require some extra sauce for my taste but nothing too wrong with that.
