This latest sample pack from Push Button Bang focuses on the dark (hence the cover) cinematic side of things.
Cinematic Sci-Fi Stems is a 2.9 GB, 44.1kHz/24-bit collection that is nothing but long stems that are geared for the composing game, TV and film soundtracks, media sound design and evolving ambient tracks. Its main theme is to provide composers and producers a flexible yet reliable set of 110 sounds for track building.
This is a complete package that will enable you to create some sonic moods, soundscapes, spooky and dark tracks in no time. The 110 full length one-shots includes some terrific subtle ambiences, tonal pads, sinister FX and synth pulses (for adding tensions and interest) and deep drones.
What I like about these stems is that they are 1 to 6 minutes in length. They evolve and change over time offering huge possibilities with editing. They can also be layered one another to create a new wall of sound. Of the entire bunch, my favorites are the drones because of their otherworldly character.
We all know that Push Button Bang has a good catalog of electronica sample libraries, but this one has got to be one of my favorites. It’s dramatic, but strange at the same time. Go get it.
