Mini-Review: Sounds of Revolution Micro Series – Abstract & Weird and Clicks & Glitches
Oliver and his baby “Sounds of Revolution” (SOR) don’t need any introduction – the sample packs are used worldwide in enumerous productions. While waiting for more soundfood, maybe successors of “Club Revolution 1″ and others, we came across a new mini series: smaller packages, but just as useful and precious as always: “Abstract&Weird” and “Clicks&Glitches”. Interesting. Let’s do this!
The product titles pretty much say what’s inside: you won’t find a huge main loop collection and some standard percussion samples – these sample packs are taking care of the subtile but yet extremely important part of a decent track: they offer everything you need to perfectly fill the sonic gaps in your track plus to add the special touch to make it (even more) unique.
Abstract & Weird is a specialty you might need some experience for. Listen carefully to trance productions of guys like Sean Tyas or explore some harder stuff of the progressive electro genre: there they are, those special sounds, weird, not really percussion, not very obvious, but they all do one thing: making a track unique and groovy. Until now we couldn’t find any similar sample collection to this one, which makes sense: as mentioned before, these kind of samples do need some producer experience and creativity to handle – otherwise they’re just some non-fitting musical elements. You need to work on them, maybe add a huge amount of high quality reverb and others… in other words, once again: you need creativity. If you think you’re ready for that, you might be the happiest person ever with this perfectly handcrafted sample pack.
Clicks & Glitches is a really lovely package to work with: all those extremely groovy, special click sounds are provided as basic loops, meaning that you don’t get perfectly grooving loops but truly inspiring material to work with: everything inside a loop is perfectly processed, but you have to work on most of the loops to make them fit into your track – which isn’t of any disadvantage at all! “Clicks&Glitches” makes you instantly cut, copy and rearrange the loops – at least it inspired our creativity from the very first moment. For every fan of electro house and progressive, for sure also other genres, there’s no better collection of these kind of sounds.
