Samplephonics – Eclecticism

Eclecticism is a stunning library from Samplephonics that features sounds ranging from Hip Hop to Electronica and House to Dance. It’s a mixture of various loops with a multitude of styles. You’ll find plenty of analog machine goodness, up-to-date beats, atmospheric drones, pads and synth basses that you can inject into your compositions. The samples are delivered in standard 24-bit audio format, including Acidized WAV, Apple AIFF and REX2. The programming of the loops is absolutely great, and you’ll be thrilled how many of the samples are actually useable. There’s an array of bass loops that are awe-inspiring, but for me the strength of this library lies in the melodic synth loops, in which I think are very useful. If you’re a producer looking for modern samples combining different styles then this sample pack is your ticket to get your compositions kick started. Thumbs up.

Samplephonics – Resonant Pulse

Futuristic, cinematic and pulsing are some of the words that I can use to describe this library from Samplephonics, but wow, this library is incredible. Resonant Pulse is an electronic cinematic library filled with atmospheric beds, warped effects and rhythmic elements. The sound design is top notch and the modern electronic feel of the loops is perfect for scoring TV and film soundtracks, game music and electronic music. This sample pack is split into six folders of Bass and Mids, Drum Loops, Pads Pulse Melodic, Percussion Loops, Tension Scenes and Textures. There are also some one shot samples thrown in for good measure. The samples are clearly labeled – as they have tempo and key information for ease of use. I instantly fell in love with this library after I started auditioning the samples in Sony Acid Pro. It’s clean and beautifully produced, with sounds that are set for prime time. Resonant Pulse is another fantastic tool from Samplephonics to help you get your musical ideas from start to a masterpiece.

Samplephonics – Vibrant Strings

Vibrant Strings is a superb sample pack from Samplephonics that offers plenty of lively strings loops, phrases and riffs that would cover different genres and styles imaginable. This collection is mostly organic strings-based and was recorded using violins, cello and violas. From individual parts to fully mixed bounces, you’ll find plenty of inspiring organic tapestries to string sequences that you can use to play with inside your DAW. Weighing in at 2.25 GB, the materials in this pack includes 60 construction kits consisting of different elements and a full mix file. These would be good as starter loops for your next TV and film score compositions or to augment in your next soundtrack masterpiece. Like many of the other Samplephonics titles, expect top-notch content here. Thumbs up for warm, expressive and beautifully performed strings loops.
