If you're looking to break the mould and develop some distinctive lead instruments for your mix, "VIP Synths: Dubstep and DnB Edition" is the one to check out. This edition has been fine tuned for the darker, subbier side of dance music: dubstep and drum & bass. Here you get hundreds of expertly built synth patches, ready to bend and twist into completely original sounds. If you need seriously high-impact and deadly destruction, there's a starting point here for your next creation. Are you ready to step out of the same old presets and rise above the rest?
This 300MB+ collection of hundreds of 24-bit samples carefully pre-formatted software sampler multi-patches is available now for download for Kontakt, Halion, EXS24, NN-XT for Reason, SFZ for Sonar Cakewalk & more. You simply call up your favourite plug-in, drop these files in, and you're ready to explore, learn and innovate. These sounds are perfect to inject into heavy bass music, ideally compressed and triple-checked in our studio for optimum quality. You can even tweak this dubbed up inspiration into other styles like jungle, breaks, techno or electro.
Producer Dimitry Vasilyev is building up a solid collection of boundary-pushing releases on primeloops.com, and this is no exception. He has used a collection of seriously fat synths including the Clavia Nord Modular, Access Virus, Korg Mono/poly and Roland MKS30, to give you the foundation for the heavy drops and unforgettable hooks your audience is waiting for. It's all yours, royalty-free so you use these sounds in any project, for any media, without legal worries.
For beginners and even for experts, creating killer synth sounds can be a mystery, but relying on the factory presets is never going to be the best solution. This collection can give new life to your plug-ins, showing you new ways to blend signals and new possibilities for your tracks. Look at your composition workflow from a different perspective, and find out how to raise your game with "VIP Synths: Dubstep and DnB Edition".
"Here we have a tasty little collection that sounds absolutely bang up-to-date, comprising bass tones, leads, pads, stabs and even a smattering of FX. There are plenty of fat-sounding, punchy basses, as well as some pleasingly harsh higher tones that would sit very well in either of the intended genres."
In a sample library market flooded with an endless supply of loops and pre-made songs in "construction kit" format, it seems rare to find a library that features just synth sounds to actually make your own music with.
That's not to put down loop-based forms of music, but if you don't make that kind of music, those libraries just aren't that useful. You'd think synth sample libraries would be commonplace, but that just isn't the way it is. So, when a collection comes along that does just that, it really stands out. That's precisely what we have with Prime Loops new library VIP Synths: Dubstep & DnB Edition.
This library consists of 270 synth sounds aimed at the darker, grittier side of electronic music, all available pre-mapped to most popular software samplers. The sounds are divided into separate self-explanatory categories of Bass, Lead, Pad, Reece, SFX, and Stabs. To bring these sounds to light, producer Dimitry Vasilyev tapped into his extensive synth collection including the Nord Modular, Access Virus, Korg MonoPoly, and Roland MKS-30, as well as plentiful effects processing. The result is one of the best collections of this kind I've heard so far.
If you're trying to get into producing your own dubstep or drum n' bass, but you're having trouble nailing the types of sounds that dominate those genres, you owe it to yourself to check this collection out. The programming is extremely well done and nearly every sound is brimming over with grimey, gritty, dark, angry, ugly (the good kind) attitude.
Just about every type of sound commonly used in these genres is represented here in several variations, and plenty of original twists are included as well. Everything from gut-rumbling subs, to sinister wobbles, to fizzy FM sounds, to ear-spanking hoovers and reeces, to abrasive leads, to both dissonant and melodic pads and sound FX is represented here.
The sounds are aggressively processed (appropriately so) and are pretty much ready to drop in the mix as-is. Some sounds have tempo-dependent elements which might limit their usefulness a bit, but as products like Kontakt 4 and Absynth that have the ability to maintain a tempo across the keyboard become more popular, this is really a minor issue.
Prime Loops have always made high quality products, but until now, I hadn't heard anything that absolutely, positively hit it out of the park. That's changed with this collection. VIP Synths: Dubstep & DnB Edition has found a great balance of reasonable price & a generous selection of very well-programmed sounds. If those genres fit the kinds of sounds you're looking for, look no further.
Everything you need to create your next track is here. Just add drums. [10/10]
