Other kits include an effectsprogramming page that is configured like the one in Loop Menu presets. Easy to use on a basic level. As with the stings, the former are presented in Elements folders, helpfully named so that you can see which Complex pad they appear in. The ability to craft rhythmic patterns from raw and processed synths and strings leaves us inspired with each cue we write. The Traditional brass patches are the most powerful and crisp brass samples I have heard, and the versatility of the Evolved patches opens up a whole world of organic swells, flourishes, and sound effects to add to my cues.
Over 700 beat-sliced loops come as menu-style loop suites or as single loops for detailed tweaking. Once again, keeping the heavy in to Heavyocity! Unlike many Sony libraries where you can almost pick loops at random and have them fit, Caliente seems to work best if most loops come from the same construction kit, particularly because many loops follow chord progressions. The dynamic range across all 6 gigs of content is astounding, from the heaviest of hits and beats, to the lightest quirkiness of a mouth pop. Having heard the imaginative uses made of arpeggiators in some contemporary sound libraries, I've become an admirer of their creative potential. Being of a complex disposition, I gravitated pun intended towards the layered pads. A large menu of pre—programmed arpeggiated patterns is available, covering both rhythmic and pitched territory. The contents of this article are subject to worldwide copyright protection and reproduction in whole or part, whether mechanical or electronic, is expressly forbidden without the prior written consent of the Publishers.
Cranking up this effect would introduce thick saturation and compression to a sound and really rough things up. It helped me to develop fresh ideas in a quick, creative and intuitive way. Rhythmic Suites offers percussive loops but also tonal loops the bass loops are killer , arpeggiations, and other sequences. Since I cut my musical teeth so to speak programming real analogue synths, I tend to be sceptical about new-fangled sampled versions, and having heard more than my fair share of dodgy rhythm loops, I'm also somewhat cynical in that regard. While we're in the spirit realm, an honourable mention must go to the 'Psaltery Dream Tails' patch, which adds the wailing of a lost choir trapped in Purgatory to the steely plucked chime of this ancient zither. This is what I do: Set up a drum rack in ableton. For grown-ups, there's a somewhat over-percussive Wurlitzer electric piano and a modest Fender Rhodes which seems to have been sampled with a subtle, built-in phasing effect.
Create dramatic, wide-screen tension with the devastating impact of Damage. Aeon Melodic also has a good Hits section containing big, portentous tuned impacts. More delicate orchestral timbres include a pretty harp sounding more like a Celtic or folk instrument than a full orchestral concert model and a delectable glockenspiel. These are uniformly scary—sounding, and the descending versions are particularly unsettling. Bass guitars reacted especially well when roughed up by the Vintage saturation model and softened with the transient shaper. .
Evolve is based on the cross-platform Kontakt Player 2—a great playback engine for sample libraries, as covered in previous reviews the high points: lots of effects, surround capabilities, aux buses, etc. Though there are a few real instrument loops, the use of Vocoder-like timbres, 'sample and hold' filter modulation, white noise and tempo-sync'ed stereo delays throughout mark this out as a strongly synth-based loop collection. Both run on the free Kontakt 5 Player and the full version of Kontakt 5, which must be version 5. Description : What started out as a swing beat turned into an ethnic drum groove of sorts that I thought sounded pretty nifty. This patch also has a digital vocal—like noise mapped in the high register, which I felt was surplus to requirements.
By Dave Stewart Heavyocity's latest contender delivers a winning one-two combination. Then there are some amazing patches that have the modern Heavyocity twist, with mangled loops and sequences which will fit right at home into any modern production. But then you can get into the deep layers of effects and processing and really make every patch your own. I think the 'saw' in the title refers to the waveform rather than the film, but there is something about this patch that makes you want to saw your own leg off. This may be the beginning of a new concept of great virtual instruments! If your post is calling someone out for something, it's probably not appropriate here. The sound sources are well represented by both organic and processed elements. Each sound inspires new ideas and creative techniques that enhance my writing process.
More outstanding examples of the library's filth and fury include the excessively fuzzed-up 'Trent Punch' riff pattern, 'Screw Driver' a hard, electronic Bo Diddley-esque beat , 'The Barker' mad electronic funky bulldog , 'Psybervibe Synbass' bonkers filter 'thips' and the belligerent, come-and-get-it drive of 'What The'. Not only does it sound awesome. Deep, Cinematic, and extremely playable. I had an almost indecent amount of fun playing these tuned loops: being tempo-sync'ed and constructed from single-hit samples, there's no danger of them playing out of time or out of tune, and you can freely overlay them to create great rhythmic combinations. Out of the box, Mutations 2 once again fits nicely with the style I write. If you believe your post or comment was removed in error, check the and include a link in a polite. If you fancy a spot of creative layering, a cool Designer page lets you choose one sample from each category and assign the three—way layer to one of 12 trigger keys positioned at the bottom end of the keyboard.
Damage provides ethnic drums recorded individually. It gives you wonderfully sampled and programmed percussion and lets you do some serious damage with it. If you need cinematic percussion, Damage is a must-have. Generally speaking, low-pitched bass-line loops use the fewest pitches: many consist of single repeated eighth notes or 16th notes. The royalty free heavyocity damage loops, samples and sounds listed here have been kindly uploaded by other users and are free to use in your project. The artful processing used in some patches is a treat, and in some cases elevates the instruments from the familiar to the otherworldly. Some samples in the synth set sound not unlike racing cars, motor bikes and helicopters, while others resemble industrial machinery.
Everything from the pads to the stings and hits are so easily tweak-able to make my own. If you're not sure if your post will fit or not, message the moderators. A contemporary media composer can no longer get by with an orchestral library and some drum loops. Heavyocity have created some great, atmospheric layerings of these processed instruments: the 'Crotales-Harp-Piano Swells' combo is splendidly ethereal, combining dreamy, backwards-sounding harp and piano swells with the ultra-high-pitched bowed crotales. The sound sources are well represented by both organic and processed elements. And incidentally, writing this review was not easy, because just about every time I called up a sound, I wanted to stop writing and make some music. Standouts for me were 'Synpholo', a fabulously funky, driving, syncopated single-note overdriven bass pattern, 'Meta Wub Skill' based on a currently fashionable, howling synth racket, which I Aeon Rhythmic's 'Loop Mutator' feature lets you change the tuning, pan or level of each loop slice.
