DJ TIESTO

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.2
An excellent follow up of the Kick Free Volume 1 set. Easy to fit in any production because it has everything ranging from tight and dry hihat loops to creative beats with effects, clicks, percussive sounds and extreme beats.

SOR – FX Revolution Vol.1
Another classic added to our collection! This is a great sample library with loads of new and fresh fx sounds. Not just to use, but to be inspired by!

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1
This library is unique in it’s contents, because it’s programmed with kicks which were taken out later. So they are built to work with big kicks! Not just cut loops to create room for a kick. Now that’s the kind of hard work we like to hear!

SOR – Electro House Revolution Vol.1
Again sounds of revolution brings us an excellent sample library. Very usable to get things on the tracks quickly with a wide variety of kicks, loops and synths but also stacked with loads of creative elements to finetune any production!

SOR – Club Revolution Vol.1
Not just loops with kicks filtered off, full spectrum! Big sounds, revolutionary and unique in it’s kind.

RiICHARD DEVINE

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
D16’s PunchBox, is one of the best kick drum synthesis instruments I have come across. The combination of built in synthesis and vast factory samples, allow you to make almost any kick drum imaginable, absolutely incredible!

SOR – Revolution JP8000/8080 Vol.2
Dude the SOR patches are fucking spectacular. I didn’t know my JP-8000 and Virus could make sounds that good. Honestly, no joke: They are the baddest ass patches I’ve ever heard for those synths. THANK YOU MAN!

NIC CHAGALL

SOR – FX Revolution Vol.1
Oliver Schmitt continually finds ways to raise the bar for sound design.

SOR – Club Revolution Vol.1
[…] marks a new milestone in sound design. It´s the most inspiring sample cd I have ever encountered! […] CR1 is so much better than the standard sample libraries with their boring ripped content and it rocks in ways that other developers can only dream of.

SANTAFLOW

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
I love D16. Syntorus is in all my productions, giving character and strengh to my strings and synths. Devastor2 is thrilling in bass and drums. Right now I’m discovering PunchBox, and I can see infinite posibilities to create completely custom kick drums.

german trance and ambient producers

BLANK & JONES

SOR – Club Revolution Vol.1
[…] Even the kick free loops are not just low cutted, they are just programmed without the Kick, leaving the sound spectrum untouched! This gives you much more opportunities and they are fitting perfectly into your sound context.

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1

PIG & DAN

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
Punchbox is hands down the most versatile goto plug in for creating unique juicy kick drums. The flexibility of parameters enables quick and effective creativity without stumping your flow. These days the Kick is the root of all music and has become possibly the most prominent groove setter in all realms of genre.
Punchbox brings all the juicy warmth with buckets of grit however without losing the punch it’s title suggests.

house music producer

ROBERT BABICZ

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
One of my goto places for a kick at the moment, very punchy and flexible kicks from the PunchBox.

SOR – FX Revolution Vol.1
…delicately put together and brilliant for adding polish to productions.

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1
The DVD KICK FREE Revolution is essential – what’s great is the material sounds very fresh. We’re already using this in our productions, and it’s very easy to drop them into apple loops and get working straight away!

JASON NEVINS

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
Punchbox is one of the most advanced and editable bass drum / kick synths out there. Although I have other similar pluins- which do have their own great features…Punchbox delivers an amazing sound design backend as well. It basically has a 500 series rack of gear just for your drums. Bitcrusher, distortion, filter, eq and limiter are all built in. You start with the basic drum sound, whether a 909, 808, 606 or sine wave and tweak away from there. You can completely customize your sound to the smallest definition of what you are looking for. The faceplate is very cool as well- completely retro and realistic. This was well thought out and the sound is incredible!

Resonance Sound – Vintage Movie Vocals 3
Nice collection of old movie dialog which could be useful for the right situation. The way to make these work would probably be best cut up and edited to make interesting sayings. The quality is quite good and sounds like they ran the audio through processing to make it more interesting. Rating: 8/10

Resonance Sound – Complextro & Electro House for Spire
Excellent noisy, dirty, hard sounds for Spire. These sound different than many big synths on the market. Whether its the way the synth was designed or the way the programmer tweak these sounds- it doesnt matter to me, because they are simply amazing. For example- the feel/ texture of these sounds are different than whats in Nex%$ or Sylen*&, 2 of the other greatest synths/ romplers out there. With sound sets like this, it puts Spire in the same category…The quality of the sound that comes from the Spire is very thick and full of body. Great variety in sounds- this is an excellent set for an excellent synth. Rating: 10/10

CFA-Sound – Spire Evolution Vol.1
Great soundset from Resonance Audio for the Spire synth. Loads of big room/ festival sounds. This is a basic yet pretty good synth- having a soundset like this turns it into a great synth. The basses in this set are so thick and loud you have to use a brickwall limiter so you dont into the red! Rating: 8/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Electro House Tools
Great job from CFA Sound & Resonance Sound. Great sounds for any EDM project. Having the MIDI construction kits are amazing because you can really get a feel of what each of the sounds can do. You can either use the construction kit as a starting point- or take it in your own direction. The kits also make it easy to use each sound individually in other tracks because you now know what each sound can produce. All the sounds in this pack range from the mild to super hard. NI’s Massive is a great synth but having these essential presets make it even better. Rating: 9/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools WAV Edition
You get 7 synth ONLY construction kits in this pack along with a folder of one shot synth sounds. There are NO drums in this pack- only synth loops. Everything is split very carefully- which is cool so you can edit and change around all parts. They provide a complete bass loop as well as multiple stems that make up each full loop. They also provide dry and wet versions of the synths, making it easy for editing. This proabably should have been called ‘Massive Complextro Synths’ instead of ‘Tools’ becuase everything in this are synths but they did a great job with it! Rating: 8/10

Audio Boutique – Big Room Elements
A very comprehensive set from Resonance Sound ! They dont skimp on this one ! You get everything you need and more to create big room EDM tracks. Tons of clap loops, cymbal loops, kick loops, percussion and top loops. You also get fills, hits, risers and vocals. One main part of this set are the “Themes”. The Themes are basically song starters- but with a lot more…you get the midi files, starts & ends as well as the Sylenth presets from which they made the sounds. This is an excellent set- well worth the money. Rating: 10/10

Swen Weber – Electromatic 2
Amazing loopset from Swen Weber- one of his best yet. Really clean and tight loops with a mainroom electro/ Swedish sound. I would have loved Apple Loops to be available- but well worth it as is. You get bass loops, kick loops, lead loops, full mixed loops, top loops & some vocal loops. The main body of this set are the bass loops and synth loops, which are excellent. Loads of inspiration and lots to create from. Rating: 9/10

Swen Weber – Electromatic
Awesome set of electro club elements. Pounding kick drums, crisp percussive loops, crunchy bass loops and tight synth loops make this a well rounded package. The vocal loops really cool, cut-up bits you can definitely fit into any cool club record. The synth loops are a combination of bleepy sounds with full on synth riffs. My favorites are the kicks, toploops & bass sounds. The midi & sampler patches are a great addition to the .wav files. Rating: 9/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools
For complextro bass sounds- its hard to find much better than this. The bass sounds are hard as HELL ! Mostly already arpeggiated- which is amazing, these sounds are straight up complextro or dubstep. Either way- they sound perfect. The leads are ok, but the fx sounds and bass sounds are what you are buying this for. Great job by CFA !! Rating: 10/10

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1
The minute I got my hands on the SOR series – I put the sounds & loops to work in all my productions and big name remixes.

TIMO MAAS

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.1
I have to say very cool library! All the sounds are very well recorded and manipulated. Other products sometimes are too “clear”…you use cool distortions / chorus / eventide effects etc…..also the kicks are super fat!

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1
Very complex grooves and well constructions. The sounds are unique.

In an oversaturated market of medium quality Techno Sample-CDs containing pretty much the same content, this collection really stands out. Almost everything you hear is unique, usefull and has the best possible sound quality without being overprocessed. Really excited to include this impressive pack in my future projects.

THOMAS GOLD

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
First of all, I love the GUI, it looks gritty and vintage but still is very intuitive and easy to use. You start the plugin and basically no manual needed. Dial in a sound and there you go. To put it simple, the overall sound is amazing. The kicks are fat, warm, tight, punchy, clean, dirty, long, short, etc. – anything is possible. Kicks are either fixed note or playable over the keyboard which is great. Regarding the sound design, I absolutely love the fact that you have so many options . With three separate sections for Click, Tops and Tools you have more than enough possibilities to enhance your basic kick sound with any sound you like to, and it’s fun to play around with the filers and strereo spread of these sections. The basic kick processors has a tight sound and all the models sound sick! I also love the different FX options, they really can make your kick sound special and add even more versatility. Really a fan of this beast and I am definitely going to use this for my future productions! 10 out of 10!

Resonance Sound – Progressive House for Spire
Solid soundset with loads of cool presets. all patches are well programmed and instantly usable. almost every aspect of a typical edm track is covered and it is easy to tweak the sounds to make them fit into productions. good stuff. Rating: 9/10

Resonance Sound – Complextro & Electro House for Spire
nice and useful soundset! even for “not complextro and electro” producers loads of inspirational sounds! good variety of types of presets and the programming quality is fine. can’t go wrong with this one! Rating: 8/10

Aiyn Zahev Sounds – Flight Path LuSH-101
fresh and inspiring soundset, really adds to the existing lush presets, modern and powerful! the sounds can go into productions immediately, they are well programmed and fit into mixes nicely. the variety is great, all in there! Rating: 9/10

Aiyn Zahev Sounds – Tundra Vol.1 DUNE
nice refill for Dune, there’s a lot of nice mellow, smooth and also edgy patches, really helpful for trance productions! a lot of basic sounds, useful collection! Rating: 7/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools
great soundset for massive! the bass sounds are phat and punchy and have great modulations already built-in! also the fx sound section works well for me. the lead sounds could be a bit more edgy and cutting through but all in all a solid package! Rating: 9/10

house producer

TOM MIDDLETON

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.5
Great selection of useful loops and kick-starters for directions in techno, house and minimal styles. All tempo matched to keep things simple for swap outs and finding compatible companion loops. Solid production! NOTE : (Check the small print as some of it was previously released in another pack). Rating: 8/10

SOR – Transformation
Super useful pack for sound design, games and filmscores plus you can integrate into your music productions with a bit of imagination. High quality sci-fi and futuristic sound design. An essential addition to the sound effects library. Rating: 9/10

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.2
If you’re making House/Tech grooves, then Oliver’s pack of pristine, swinging kick-less starting points and groove enhancers will set you up for months, if not years! Fantastic value as per usual, with nearly 1 and a half Gigs of diverse ‘tops’ across the spectrum from tribal to glitchy/minal electronic styles. Plus 70 solid Kicks to add..never seem to get enough Kicks right(!) All in all, gets a massive ‘LIKE’ from me. Rating: 10/10

SEAN TYAS

CFA-Sound – Thrillogy-1
I’ve gotten to go through the Thrillogy Bank from CFA and I’m really impressed with these sounds, which straight away are useable and desireable, especially for melodic synth based styles like Progressive and Trance, though I think if I removed the reverb from some of the patches, they would find very comfortable homes amidst Electro & Psy as well.. A very well rounded bank and definitely highly.

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
Punchbox is a really cool toolbox to create the perfect bass drums, fast and simple for almost any dance genre. The presets are great starting points and you can shape it fast and easy into any direction, just the way you need it. I also like the way it is structured and if you are not a sound designer you can even learn how to layer a perfect bass drum.

Being fans of classic Roland Gear (but not the factory sounds) Oliver really blew us away with his AMAZING banks. The JD800 has a new lease of life and is now in constant use. The JP8080 banks are hugely addictive with each patch being really relevant and useful, which is very refreshing considering the saturated market of mediocre soft synth patch banks. Congratulations Resonance sound. we can’t wait to hear more… YOU GUYS ROCK!!

PROK & FITCH

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
Loving this vsti! There’s so much scope to be experimental and really get your kicks sounding unique. There’s very little need for external processing as everything you have on the front panel sounds ace, especially liking the distortion to give that old school crunch and the option to add a little extra snap to the front of your kick is a cool feature. The built in drum machines to either layer your kick or build a new one are a great touch, so pretty much every base is covered. We’ll be using this a lot!

Audio Boutique – Electric Elements 3.0
Been waiting for this for a while, as always great sample pack, particularly like the Loops, well recorded & will provide us with plenty of inspiration. Bass Loops are also very good and a little different to the norm. Thanks Rating: 9/10

SOR – Hats & Tops Vol.1
We’ll be rinsing these!! Loads of bright groovy shuffles. Plenty of variety and will save loads of time sifting though different hats to find the right balance for the top layer of our tracks. Essential ‘Top’ material for anyone making house music. Rating: 9/10

JOSH GALLAHAN

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.2
In my opinion, KFR2 is the most unique and inspiring loop sample bank since years. It has lots of brilliant filler loops, percussions and extraordinary samples. This guarantees a very fast and creative workflow. And the quality of the sounds is an own state of the art. Can’t wait for Vol. 3! btw: I love apple loops. 5* of 5*

SOR – FX Revolution Vol.1
You can never have enough FX sounds and with FX Revolution Vol. 1, Olliver Schmitt delivers another masterstroke. Fresh and inspiring, neverending.

PAUL MENDEZ

Audio Boutique – Deep House Construction Kits
If you listen to radio a lot then you will have heard this latest style of deep house or tropical house from artists such as lost frequencies & robin schulz that is dominating the airwaves and clubs this summer, a lot of these big tracks use live instruments played in the studio and to be honest a lot of younger producers and bedroom guys cant afford to do this so when a pack like this comes along and offers these live elements then this has got to be a must buy. Rating: 9/10

Resonance Sound – EDM MIDI Weapons 2.0
I admit i have been working a lot with Audio lately and i really needed a kick up the backside to start using my vst’s, this pack is very good as it gives you fresh sounding ideas that sound very much like today’s edm tracks and with it being midi it allows you to basically re-arrange and create your own chord structure which i like doing to try and stay original. Rating: 9/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools WAV Edition
Awesome quality for big room EDM tracks that sound like Hardwell meets Steve aoki in a dark room and the outcome is this pack. you could literally make 5 high calibre tracks and with a bit of intuition and production quality a few top 10 hits. what are you waiting for? Rating 8/10

Audio Boutique – Big Room Elements
Think Will I am versus Bingo players and you will have the perfect pack here in big room elements as all the signature leads and bass lines are present.this pack makes it easy to create a track that if produced to a high standard could well be in the sets of some major djs soon. Rating: 7/10

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.5
Another beautiful release from Resonance Sound. This is probably one of the tidiest packs around. There is pretty much everything about Techno in this pack and they are good! Athmos, Glitch, Clickloops folders are extremely useful and rare. However my favourite bit is the Drum sounds here, expect to find very well recorded drum hits. If you are a Techno head, this package will be a “go to” pack for you. Rating: 8/10

SOR – Clicks & Glitches Vol.4
I’ve been following Resonance Sound since their first Minimal Revolution pack. Quaity of their sounds are incredible and this pack is no different. Totally in love with these glitchy, clicky sounds. I like to chop them and use as hits to create new things. One for the minimal heads! Rating: 8/10

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.4
Big Up Oliver for delivering another monster pack. If you are in to Techno this pack is a must have. I don’t know where to start everything about this pack is perfect but my favourite part is the Kick Free drum loops and FX sounds. Vocals are also very interesting and catchy. Wicked pack, highly recommended. Rating: 10/10

SOR – Minimal techno Revolution Vol.3
This is by far the best minimal techno series. I’ve previously downloaded volume 1 and volume 2, finally 3rd one is out and it sounds even better then previous ones. Live Bassloops are absolutely amazing and drum loops also stand out for me. Athmos and FX sounds are also rich and very useful. This pack offers too much and highly recommended for minimal and techno producers… Rating: 10/10

SOR – Minimal techno Revolution Vol.2
I’m not in to Minimal Techno but after listening the audio samples i decided to check this pack out… There are very useful elements for any kind of techno or house producers. I found bass and drum loops very catchy. Recommended… Rating: 9/10

Whether you’re after some full on drum or synth loops, some fx or a one shot kickdrum, this package got you covered! It also contains some tasty 303 loops and perfectly processed vocal FX – an essential pack, if you want to bring your project a bit closer to the dark side! Rating: 9/10

CFA-Sound – Spire Evolution Vol.1
A great pack of sounds for one of the most talked about synths at the moment. Well programmed, great sounding, and suitable for loads of different styles. A great collection of Basses, FX, Leads, Plugs and more – definitely worth the money! Rating: 8/10

Aiyn Zahev Sounds – Altitude Spire
Spire is slowly becoming my “go-to-synth”, and some good presets as a starting point is always appreciated. The AZS Altitude pack is full of well designed, easy tweakable sounds. Good for a lot of different styles, and especially the tranceheads should give this one a go! Rating: 9/10

CFA-Sound – TITAN-1 Xfer Serum Presets
I recently discovered Xfer Serum, and even though I’ve read a few times that the synth is a game changer, I was still a bit sceptical. However, after spending a few minutes with the synth I know it would change my sound forever. Therefore, it is also a real pleasure to gain access to so many strong presets in this Titan-1 preset bank. The presets hardly needs any tweaking and fit many different styles. If you don’t believe me try download the demo package or have a listen to the demo. This package is high quality and will easily inspire you to write phat tracks. Rating: 9/10

Aiyn Zahev Sounds – Halcyon for Serum
The power of Xfer’s Serum is undeniable and just gets even better with strong presets. Halcyon has put a lot of attention to detail with this package and it has certainly paid off – a really great soundset. While the package might be aimed a bit more towards the trancy side of EDM it will fit many other styles as well. Recommendable! Rating: 8/10

SOR – Kick Free Revolution Vol.1
This is an older pack, but this sample collection still slams for techno producers looking for loads of great top loops and percussion for music production. The 2nd edition is also a kicker! Rating: 9/10

SOR – Transformation
Resonance Sound delivers a full on Fx pack for loads of applications. The pack is stuffed with loads of unique sound effects, impacts, Atmos and drum shots which are nice and tight. I think the pack can be great for Dnb and Hardcore producers as well as any other style in need of some mechanical mayhem. SOR Transformation offers so many variations and different sounds you can create serious tension in a film, game, or a section in any track or drop. Great pack! Rating: 10/10

Swen Weber – Electromatic 2

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools
CFA delivers a high powered pack for NI’s Massive. With lots of packs on the market CFA’s newest pack shines thru in a big way. The sound set is phat and chunky as you would expect a Complextro preset pack for Massive. I love the midi construction kits in this pack. They would be great for anyone starting out or if ure looking for a quick fix of Complextro in a flash. Over all this pack is dope as and should not be over looked esp producers looking to add edgy sounds to there Massive preset collection. Rating: 8/10

CFA-Sound – Massive Complextro Tools
This package is so much fun to work with right now. The style is so on-point of what is happening in the electronic music at the moment. It has a whole set of really nice growls with the bottom and top end to get that nasty Dubstepy sound of today. Loading these presets into your Massive is pretty easy and the Massive saves the actual preset in the syth which not all do, so you dont have to load the presets in every time you open a new syth. Thanx… Rating: 10/10

D16 PunchBox Bassdrum Synthesizer
Punchbox provides all the weight, punch and grit I need from a kick. Kicks are the foundation of my music and are often the only bass element in my tracks, therefore it is essential that they are perfect and with Punchbox the layering options and effects make achieving this easier than with any other software percussion solution. Punchbox has a flexibility and sound quality that will ensure it’s my first choice for kicks for a long time.

Just have to say a massive thanks to AiynZahevSounds for the excellent Diva ‘Transitions’ bank. 3 patches and counting in my current tune.

Loving your banks for the Virus TI and Sylenth. Wow! Already using some of your patches in some upcoming productions. Always great to have new and inspiring sounds that stand out. I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on you in the future.

SOR – Revolution Virus C/TI Vol.2
These sound banks have given me bags of inspiration, so huge thanks for your incredible work on these. Without doubt some of the best and most detailed patches I’ve heard from my Virus and JP. Even Vanguard sounds amazing with your banks loaded up. In fact, I’m using two of your patches on a track right now. Highly recommended

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.4
SOR Minimal Techno Revolution Vol. 4 by Resonance Sound is the material dance floor hits are made of. Every kick, snare, hi hat, synth chord and bass riff is packed with a promise to thread your production with bombastic thump. Music producers… YOU NEED THIS SOUND PACK IN YOUR WEAPONS BOX! This will make you legend, like me. Enjoy! Rating: 10/10

Resonance Sound – Vintage Movie Vocals 3
What a splendid idea! Juxtaposing movie quotes to EDM beats to add intrigue. This is great mix for those with a more film or literary bent, and film vocals are perfect for introductions or interludes to songs. The quotes are delivered expressively and are mixed well to have that vintage feel. The only catch is that the subject matter could be a little more varied; many of the quotes reference music in some way. Rating: 8/10

SOR – Transformation
SOR Transformation is the ultimate sound pack for the super future producer. Mainstream guys, this is not for you. Robot sounds, computer squeaks and grinding metals. Not your average sound choice in todays music. But as they say.. It’s not what you use, it’s how you use it. Composers will love the frequencies in this bundle. Rating: 10/10

Resonance Sound – EDM MIDI Weapons 3.0
“EDM MIDI Weapons 3.0″ by Resonance Sound offers MIDI melodies (without the synth patches). The melodies are very fitting for EDM music and provide ample room for experimentation within different software and hardware synths. Additionally, this collection offers room to vary some of the notes within your compositions to suit the exact sound you are seeking. Rating: 8/10

Resonance Sound – Vintage Movie Vocals 2
Vintage Movie Vocals 2 by Resonance Sound brings you the madness to your method. Dj’s and producers will know exactly what to do with this pack. So have fun and create great skits! Rating: 10/10

SOR – Abstract and Weird Vol.1
SOR Abstract & Weird Vol 1 by Resonance Sound gives you that other world sound. Most us a producer take our time to search the land for the different sounds. Well search no more! This is the sound pack you need to be weird. Enough said… Enjoy! Rating: 10/10

CFA-Sound – Synergy Vol.1 Sylenth1
Amongst a lot of different soundbanks I truely prefer the “Synergy Vol. 1 Soundset”. Not only that you can choose from a broad range of styles – the sounds use the whole power the Sylenth 1 is able to supply. Stabs & basslines are punchy and crisp, pads are smooth and spread a nice, warm and mystic atmosphere.

I need top sounds for my projects and Ollie´s soundsets deliver just that. I love the JP8000 sets as they have a fat rich darkness to the tones which most plug ins can´t deliver. I also love the ES2 set for Logic Audio. All very useable and bang on the pulse for the sound of tomorrow! I need all the best sounds I can get my hands on. Loving the SOR sounds!

I was just amazed as i heard the demo of the first sound set for the ACE, “Cable Dance”. I got this synth brandnew so this soundset showed me how powerful this crazy thing can be. Never faced so many useful sounds in one set before. Meanwhile I own all the Soundset, “CableDance”, “CableForce” and “CableSphere” and I use them almost daily in my prodcutions. You don’t need anything else to create a cool club track!

BASSBIN TWINS

Audio Boutique – Atmos Textures & Noise Elements
An ambitious collection which succeeds on every level: quality, variety and the ability to enrich every single project regardless of nature / style / genre. A couple highlights among many are the obscuring of detectable language with the human vocal samples and the ‘Static Atmos’ folders both tonal (key-labeled) and non-tonal. Every subfolder is rewarding and as a whole this is a truly impressive pack. Rating: 10/10

SOR – Minimal Techno Revolution Vol.4
A treasure chest of expert audio minimalism. Clicks, bumps, effects and loops all incredibly versatile and useful. Amazing collection from beginning to end of non-agressive elements that feel alive with the warmth and punch dialed in just right. ‘Minimal Techno Revolution 4’ is so good that if you’re like me you’ll feel lucky that you found it and wish that more sample collections were on this level of quality. Rating: 9/10

SOR – Transformation
Holy mechanical nuance: from delicate twitching to vault-slam heavy this is thrilling stuff for anyone who’s building a sound library that’s off the beaten path. The recording quality is supreme and the selection is outstanding. Often surprisingly rhythmical and suggestively melodic – pure inspiration that’s strong on every level. For mechanical-based sample collections this is the “desert island one” for me. Rating: 10/10

Aiyn Zahev Sounds – Dystopia Vol.1 for Razor
Wow, this is an incredible selection of presets for NI’s Razor. AZS Dystopia Razor is stuffed to the gills with stunning atmospheric sounds, warm and luscious pads, leads and basses. These could work wonders for progressive, electro and main room house tracks as well as more leftfield or downtempo numbers. Great textures and some really beautiful sounds. Rating: 10/10

Resonance Sound – Vintage Movie Vocals 1
As the vintage Ronseal advert says “it does what it says on the tin.” Here Resonance Sound give you a chunky pack filled with vintage movie samples that instantly conjour up the golden era of the big screen and will add some instant old skool sampler style sheen to your tunes. We’ve already found a space for one of these sample in a track and there’s loads of usable bits in here for all kinds of genres. Great stuff! Rating: 10/10

Audio Boutique – Techno Elements 1.0
Techno Elements 1.0 is a brilliant kit with a good size library of samples ranging from synths to bass and drums. On top, the vocal presets are really great, as are the construciton kits.
Undoubtedly, the 303 is timeless as well as priceless and it’s there to inspire and give another dimension to some wicked techno tracks. Recommended for the techno die hards! Rating: 9/10

Resonance Sound – Vintage Movie Vocals 1
Vintage Movie Vocals is a nice pack of phrases and catchy sounds to add extra edginess and a twist to any electronic music production. A touch of cinematic wittiness that can give bonus points and transform tracks with finer details. Rating: 8/10

SOR – Hats & Tops Vol.1
This does just what it says on the label: it is a really useful collection of top-loops. I would mostly recomend this to pumpin’ Tech House producers on the lookout for nicely swingin’ and jackin’ loops, as an addition to their beats. The sound quality is good, with a lot of brightness… Recomended! Rating: 8/10

DAVIDE CARBONE

SOR – Transformation
A nice selection of sound effects. I enjoyed some of the more resonant granular tones like the cyborg effects and hydraulic movements. There’s a a lot of variety here which gives the pack some longevity. Naturally you could use some of the sounds for sound design projects and within your own tracks. Some of the atoms effects are quite other worldy which makes this pack good value. Rating: 7/10

Swen Weber – Electromatic
Yeah a really strong pack made by a producer that cares about his work. Really well thought out sound design giving you a great bunch of sounds and inspiration to draw from. I particularly like the modern use of effects and production to give this pack a current sound. highly recommended. Rating: 9/10

Once in a while,the sheer content of a sample pack is so immense that you could make a whole album of it.If you are lazy ! This is one of those.At first glance,I was intimidated as to how much stuff there was to go through.For me,this is the most complete,abstract,alien sounding sample pack I’ve found in a vert long time.The quality shines through in every section and whoever did this,put a good dose of love into it . Highly recommended. Rating: 8/10

Audio Boutique – Techno Elements 1.0
This is alright. Some good grooves here,and if you’re after the authentic 303 sound there is plenty of good loops to chose from. Some fantastic fx and great bass loops adds to a great package full of ready-to-go beats. I recommend. Rating: 7/10

They suit the sound of today’s dance music very well and even opens up for creative work to sculpture the sound of the dance music to come. Diverse and well made patches that should be a part of every dance music producer out there. I’m especially impressed with the bass patches.

SOR – Hats & Tops Vol.1
An interesting pack that provides nothing but hi hat and top end lines – no kicks or bass lines here, as the title would suggest. You can get a quick hi hat fix here if the placement of one-shots is too arduous! Useful for those who enjoy working with loops … Rating: 7/10

Swen Weber – Pure Electro Vol.2
Swen Weber – Pure Electro Vol. 2 by Resonance Sound Fine Electro at its best! this is a breath of fresh air for electro dance music production! what also strikes me as an artist and producer is that although this is an electro package it is very diverse and found myself playing with the sounds in my Transnational Dubstep and Drum and Bass tracks and it sits well like a perfect glove. This neat mega package comes with some awesome drum and Synth sounds and the basses are a treat. 10 out of 10! without a doubt! and i strongly recomend this to all fine electronica artists. Rating: 10/10
