A 60+ MB library of one-shots for producers of industrial, techno, noise, hip hop, rock and etc., Amplify is a stage-ready collection of 381 overdriven and saturated samples. Mode Audio’s goal is to take several drum machines (Roland TR505, Roland TR808, Roland TR909, Alesis HR16 and Korg Volca Beats) and run them through distortion pedals and delay effects. The signal would then be fed through a 65W Roland amplifier and recorded using a condenser mic and various effects chain. The resulting treated samples are full of character, punchy and in-your-face. Amplify also includes several MIDI files and pre-mapped 12 drum kit sampler patches for Ableton Live, Logic Pro and Reason – making it an attractive tool for whoever wants to just dial up presets in these DAWs. If 12 is not enough, there are plenty of kicks, snares, hi hats, toms and percussion samples to mix and match here. You won’t be disappointed with the 37 echo drum samples either, as are they are superb. Amplify is dirty good. Highly recommended.
