Xfer Records is a label started by Deadmau5 and his longtime friend and studio accomplice Steve Duda for their collaborations, such as BSOD, and WTF? with Tommy Lee and DJ Aero.
Their latest pack offering is not a music pack, but rather a sample pack for music producers, featuring a plethora of WAV loops and one-shots, ready to be loaded in to any popular music-making software.
An extensive amount of gear was used for the pack-including circuit-bent and analogue drum machines, vintage analogue synths such as Moog and Arp, original acoustic drums and other sounds recorded in various professional studios. A variety of digital sound sources were used as well for creating new sounds, such as FFT synthesis, additive/subtractive synthesis, even custom DSP routines coded by Steve Duda in C++.
"Despite the large amount of sample packs out there, we saw a niche for one geared towards building blocks of EDM with a twist - this one is royalty-free, so it can be used in original productions with no fear of legal repercussions from the original artists who often are sampled on other sample libraries", says Steve. "We tried to make an assortment featuring a variety of sound sources, which aren't overproduced so they can fit into a production workflow without stamping their own flavor on a mix and being overly-recognizable".
One thing for certain, the sounds of the XFER Sample pack will be featured on dance tracks for decades to come.
NOTE: The samples in this collection are now included in the library for the Xfer Nerve software Drum Machine
Note: Rex 2 files are only included on the Download Version.
