Review: 'Action Drums: Cinematic Edition' is a dynamic collection of performances designed to fill the percussive needs of motion picture, television, video game and production music. Recorded in a concert hall, 'Action Drums: Cinematic Edition' mixes close and distant microphone positions of soloists and ensembles to create natural recordings that range from subtle and understated; from ethnic and exotic, to high-powered and relentless.
A wide range of instruments were used including concert toms, concert bass drums, shime-daikos, surdos, djembes, batas, talking drum, udu, tabla, congas, small percussion and more. And as part of Nine Volt Audio's BPM Flex Series™, musicians can be assured that any of the REX-based loops can be used at a huge range of tempos (supported by Stylus RMX, Reason, Kontakt and most sequencers). Apple Loop and Acid Wav users will also find an extended range available since every full mix loop is presented at two different tempos.
- Contains 850 loops in the REX2, Stylus RMX, Apple Loop and ACIDized Wav formats.
- Uncompressed .wav file content is 1.84 GB.
- Nearly 200 single and ensemble hits are included for endings, breaks and dramatic impacts; plus an additional 20 unique one shots (bowed gong, metallic impacts, cymbal rolls, etc.).
- Organized into 12 Beat Themes: Each Beat Theme contains between six and 26 full mix loops (152 total), as well as the individual parts used to make the full mixes (698 loops). This allows the user to easily edit and mix-and-match parts to create custom passages.
- Contains Beat Themes in time signatures 4/4, 3/4 and 6/8 and covers a tempo range of 90-170 BPM.
- Using within Stylus RMX requires the user to drag-and-drop only one folder into RMX's included SAGE Converter.
- Forty-four patches/multis for Kontakt are supplied. The patches and multis are organized into three different styles for three levels of mix, performance and RAM usage.
- The Kontakt patches/multis utilize the REX2 format (compatible with full versions of Kontakt 3.5 and up. NOT compatible with Kontakt Player).
- Includes 304 Stylus RMX multi presets that allow the user to pull up full mixes of individual loop parts for quick and easy customization of the mix. Presets are presented in both single and multi-channel versions.
- Suggested tempos have been given to each suite, but as part of the BPM Flex Series™, every loop can be used at an unusually large tempo range while retaining their feel and groove (not applicable to the ACID wav and Apple Loop files).
- Full mix loop performances are offered at two different tempos for the ACIDized Wav and Apple Loop formats for an additional 152 loops.

Soundclash (brand new collection of Nu Electro Dance loops and samples with over 1650 samples and 1.1Gb of the coolest, freshest house and nu electro dance music in the business)
13 Jul 09
Review: Zero-G and Xfonic present Sharooz Raoofi's 'Soundclash' - over 1650 samples and 1.1Gb of the coolest, freshest house and nu electro dance music in the business. 'Soundclash' is a brand new collection of nu electro dance loops and samples crammed full of sounds that are filling the dancefloors right now.
Every sample has been painstakingly played, programmed and produced to give you what is probably the best electro house sample collection available today. Combining live guitar and bass and real percussion samples, along with some of the funkiest electro synth loops and tripped out fx, brand new beats and superb single hit sounds. No matter what platform or music software you use, if you need the authentic sounds packing the world's best dance floors right now then check out this huge library. Get ready to experience the blood-pulsing, heart-racing rhythms and melodies of the future of dance. From cool synths to driving beats, all the material you need to get your tracks into the biggest clubs is right here.
This fantastic library comes in multiple formats that should suit every music producer.
Producer Sharooz Raoofi writes: The initial idea for 'Soundclash' came from my DJ sets in and around the UK - I was starting to realise that whilst the traditional house sound had shifted hugely towards a more synthesizer-based electronica feel, this music would cease to evolve unless there was a live element of sorts - be it a snatch of live guitar, bass, vocals or real drums. To date, I was unaware of any sample library that captured the true essence of this sound, as most veered more towards 80s old-skool electro or the tech-house sound of the late 90s. 'Soundclash' is intended as a more open-minded approach to dance music, breakbeats sit comfortably with conventional house sounds, minimal beats and techno. The basslines and musical elements are influenced as much by rock and punk as they are by dance music - in fact many of the basslines were played live on electric bass and transcribed as synth lines.
From a technical viewpoint, 'Soundclash' comprises an equal balance of digital sound sources and genuine analogue machines from the 80s and early 90s. One sound which will be immediately familiar across the library is that of the Roland SH-101, in my opinion one of the warmest and phattest 80s monosynths. Most of the beats were composed through the 12-bit classic Akai MPC 60 - still an absolute favourite of mine and a must for that authentic 80s drum grit! Most of the sounds were treated with digital plug-ins, as I find this to be the perfect combination for dance music; analogue sound sources with digital processing - the best of both worlds! I suppose 'Soundclash' is a fitting title for the project, as throughout it the latest digital impulse reverbs and modeling plug-ins clash and blend with old-skool samplers, fx units and drum machines - I only hope you enjoy using 'Soundclash' as much as I enjoyed making it.

Over 2.6 GB of original, peerless and inspirational dance samples from multi-talented, multi-tasking DJ/producer Glenn Morrison
Review: Glenn Morrison is a major rising player in the global dance music scene. Hitting number one on the Beatport sales chart, remixing the Pet Shop Boys, Craig Armstrong and Bernard Sumner (from New Order), signing tracks to EMI, Azuli, Positiva, Armada, Hope and Great Stuff, and getting props from the cream of the world's top DJs (including Sasha, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Justice, Nick Warren, John Digweed, Laurent Garnier and Sven Vath).
Glenn has designed the library for dance producers specializing in house, techno, progressive house, ambient, downtempo, trip hop, and trance.

Sample DVD wirh real analog beats and kits
Review: The Modular Beats is a labour of love of Roger Gronberg, a sound designer from Norway who specialises in physical modelling and sound invention.
In today's world of routine beats you need something to stick out from the crowd. The Modular Beats is full of stand-out beats and kits made from pure analog sources. You will be amazed by the diversity and invention the can be squeezed out of these huge, wonderful machines.
The idea behind the project was to make a usable, unique and fresh sounding drum and percussion library. To do that, no samples or drum machines have been used. The sounds and loops are 100% original and created using only modular synthesizers and analog monosynths. The basis of each sound is oscillators and noise generators. Over 25 GB of raw material and 4000 work hours have gone into this library.
With over 1.5 GB of original material and 400 loops, 400 single hits and 300 modular drum kit instruments (containing over 2000 drum hits) designed for use in Kontakt, EXS24 and Reason, Modular Beats contains everything from dance grooves to scary cinematic beats and with all those analog drum kits you'll be able to make your very own fully analog loops in no time.
The Modular Beats is a fantastic tool for any music producer looking for unique sounds to add something special to their sonic arsenal.
