Wusik Sound Magazine Review: FX Revolution
Last issue, when I reviewed Kick Free Revolution Vol. 1 & 2 from Sounds of Revolution, I gave both libraries high marks for their excellent quality. Lots of good dance sounds, I remember. In this sample pack, however, SOR's Oliver Schmitt unveils himself as a diverse sound designer by serving modern FX samples for use in electronic and dance genre. Although Sounds of Revolution is known worldwide to make techno, house and dance loops, FX Revolution Vol. 1 is as equally impressive as his other releases. Included in this pack are odd noises, nice filtered sweeps, twisted LFO sounds, hard-hitting impacts & explosions, futuristic percussive sounds and a massive set of one-shots for building your own custom drum kits. I explored the 900+ samples by auditioning them in Sound Forge 9. I find that the sounds are carefully crafted and edited with the use of clever processing. What impressed me are the good selections of impact and explosion sounds, even the additional 300+ kick-free loops rock.
