PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement
by SAMPLE FUEL Review

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement is under review today, Sample Fuel is focusing on Halion sound packs that are so exceptionally good that you wish them to be released on more platforms as well.

PAD MOTION is based on the CRE8 (also by Sample Fuel) Engine. The library is a Halion Sonic SE sound set. The company has not plan to support Kontakt as what is possible for them to deliver in Halion is not easily possible to create in those other platforms. The producer who is also a professional composer has been using the HALion platform for many years.

The producing company’s aims to create this pad engine and instrument was not to be just another pad library but to deliver a product that would be the best pad library on the market for the modern-day media composer. Sample Fuel did send a review copy with no strings attached.

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement Installation

You need the Halion SE player to run the pads. The installation routine is described and easy. When you register for Halion SE keep in mind that you receive one license per email if you lost the old one just register a new email for the codes. As you run into an issue with the PAD MOTION, I would recommend sticking to one Halion SE. It is being addressed to become more comfortable.

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement Sound

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement leverages four distinct from creating pads that are usable by any composer for a wide range of genres. The CRE8 Engine as a baseline is capable of producing four kinds of synthesis for THE PAD MOTION. The four models are GRANULAR, SAMPLE PLAYBACK, Analog Modeling, and Wavetable synthesis.

Sample Fuel uses Halion (The free version Halion SE works) to deliver a hybrid synth platform performing pad for various moods. Sample Fuel demonstrates how Halion can annihilate Kontakt as a synth player engine. An alternative platform would be Falcon which got great new content over the past year and is getting more and more popular.

PAD MOTION wants to be inspiring and simple to use. Many of the included patches are more subtle and great to sit in the background, and you can compose with them in context. The included presets have a touching mood and can be if needed of complex nature to allow you to produce emotional vibes. The engine supports you to dial in the required intensity and you can dial in the motion to fit your track.

The Pads can be played on your midi keyboard. As the pads are not designed to be a musical instrument, these sounds can be played to some extent. Remeber these are pads to support vibes and a mood. Spanning from positive energy to deep atmospheres, soundscapes, drones, and organic synth sounds. All in supporting you to enhance your themes.

This library shines when you are in need of a pad, drone, and atmospheric sounds/textures best suited behind your main melody and theme. It gets you started when you work on your next feature film, video game, ad or trailer and you need that individual cinematic signature sound.

PAD MOTION is all about atmospheres, pads and background textures to enhance your cues or sit in the background to support a scene in your next film.

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement User interface & Usability

The UI is driven by two forces what the developer has set up as their UI and what Halion offers you.  Overall the library comes with an intuitive and adaptable flow based on the already used CRE8 Engine which surfaced in other products from Sample Fuel.

To learn more about this library take a look at StrongMocha’s CYCLE-CRE8 Review.

Cycle-CRE8 is all about moving, emotional sound waves that while in motion are always interesting to listen to. There are so many excellent patches included which you can use straight out of the box and have them evolve over time. Cycle-CRE8 is a synth engine based on samples that house 4 different sample layers with over 675 different sample sources each. The engine cycles through each layer in the order in tempo with the host/DAW. When the cycling is disabled, this instrument is capable to create thick and powerful 4 layer pads. The factory library includes over 450 professionally curate program presets.

Sample Fuel libraries are my personal favorite source for pads, textures, and ambiances. Cycle-CRE8 fits just into the line up of unheard, unique libraries, this time with a lot of attractive movements. CYCLE-CRE8 is an essential addition for any composer who needs to add underscore, pads, and ambiances to their track.
