Mike Allen’s Reviews
Cold as ice
I was wondering why this was such a large download, until I played across the keyboard and realized Clay had recorded each note with subtle and not so subtle effects added. This is a brilliant idea. We have all heard an interesting noise from striking a metallic object. This is hopefully one of a series? Useful and chilling.
Swells for free...Swell
Another very useful contribution from Dan. Orchestral swells like these are incredibly useful for injecting an element of realism into a mock up. My only issue is with the low winds at high dynamics. I am not a fan of the wavering pitch of the Bassoons. Others may like this? But, other than that it is really good.
........now this is a good idea. Round robins, using different samples. I find I am using this in a lot of tracks. It sparks new creative ideas and combinations of sounds I had not thought of. Very well done and very well recorded. .....Another please?
Useful and Sweet
Ok, so there are some issues. Occasional phasing when switching between dynamic layers. But, throw it in a mix with other brass and add another layer of randomness. Which is always good.
Could this be the first of a fleet of vehicle percussion packs. Let's hope so. Simple and fun. The engine running noise, is , well noisy. But there are some interesting sounds among the samples. Easy to use and fun. Mercedes next perhaps.
