Artist & Press Reviews
ABOUT HATS & TOPS BUNDLE
The three-part Hats and Tops bundle is a 622 MB sound collection specializing in crisp percussive sound material. The 325 top loops, which vary in tempo between 124-127 BPM, do without kick drums altogether, but are sophisticated and varied. From overtone-rich filtered percussion including hissing hi-hats to transient-rich claps with subtle delays, the selection is very large. As a bonus, the package Prime Kicks 2 with juicy bass drums is included. The bassdrums show their charm and enormous power particularly with the layered kicks. The analog kicks and break kicks are also very impressive.
Verdict: A big plus of this sound collection, besides the kickdrum pack, is that it offers cross genre drums for electronic music that work for House, Tech-House, Techno, Electro or Minimal equally well.

ABOUT 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
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
If you like it driving this pack works for you. All loops are tight, crispy and burst of energy. Perfect addition to your tracks. Rating: 8/10
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
ABOUT HATS & TOPS VOL.2
Incredible selection of Texture and Noise elements, these kind of Organic sounds are extremely useful pretty much for all types of music. I love the fact that you have so many different sounds within each folder, everything grouped nicely and most importantly the quality of the recordings are spectacular! Highly recommended! 9/10
Here we have another micro sample pack from Oliver Schmitt aka Sounds of Revolution. Hats & Tops Vol. 2 is a collection of 100 hats and tops loops geared for the creation of deep house, house, minimal, tech house and techno. This pack also includes fifteen kick-free loops (recorded in 127 BPM) as a bonus. Although this pack only weighs in at 130 MB, the materials included are very useable and inspiring. Plenty of them are good as starter loops to get your tracks going. Like many of Sounds of Revolution’s releases, every sample in this library was meticulously crafted from scratch and expertly programmed for full sonic potential. Soundwise, I like how the 100 loops as they are very detailed and clear. They are just right at 124 BPM, though you can always speed them up using a pitch and timestretching software. Overall, this is a good micro pack, and once again I’m blown away by Oliver Schmitt’s sound design skills.
