REVOLUTION a Reverse Instrument by Sample Fuel

REVOLUTION is Sample Fuel first Reversing Instrument Library that utilizes 2 different synthesis engines making it one of the most unique and capable reversing sample library instruments available anywhere.

The approach when creating this instrument was not to be just a one-shot reverse library but to deliver a product that would be the most usable and unique reverse library on the market for the modern-day media composer.” said Danny Lux, Owner at SAMPLE FUEL and continues “Our goal was not just to reverse the sample content and call it done, but to create an engine capable of creating reversing textures that you can loop, mangle, layer on top of one another or add to a granular texture. The patches are interesting and unique enough to give your compositions new color and texture.”  SAMPLE FUEL did send a review copy with no strings attached.

The developed engine can reverse the sample in the process produces reversing textures and sounds. Those new vibes can be easily looped and shaped.

EVOLUTION is an individual library,  there are alternatives that explore similar areas but this one produces a vibe and tone that I did not hear before. The collection makes pretty much any reverse sound you need.

Of the presets, some of my favorites are actually the simple reverse synth and E-piano instruments. It includes a treasure chest, with sounds ranging from lush to aggressive vibes.

The developed patches are compelling and unprecedented and deliver your compositions new color, vibe, and texture. Sample Fuel did sample: Acoustic Guitar 12 String, Acoustic Guitar, Acoustic Guitar Harmonics, Auto Harp, Bass Guitar, Buzzy Synth, Celeste, Dirty Electric Guitar, Electric Guitar, Electric Guitar Harmonics, Electric Piano 1, Electric Piano 2, Feedback Wurli, Glockenspiel, Granular Bowl, Granular Glass, Granular Handbell, Grand Piano, Granular Piano, Harmonic Keys, Karimba (hybrid kalimba and marimba mixed), Mountain Dulcimer, Noisey Keys, Sine Waves, and Vibraphone.

  • NOTE VALUE KEY SWITCHING – Reversing Layers 1 and 2 can have their note values key switched independently in real-time. For example, Layer 1 can be set to a Whole note while Layer 2 can be set to Half or Quarter notes creating complex and interesting reverse poly rhythms.

CYCLE – CRE8

CYCLE – CRE8 is a simple and easy to use 4 sample layer instrument that cycles through the layers in a rhythmic fashion. CYCLE-CRE8 is an essential addition for any composer who needs to add underscore, pads, and ambiances to their track. Requires HALion Sonic SE 3.2.20 FREE, HALion Sonic 3.2.20 or HALion 6.2.1 or higher. (Note: HALion Sonic SE 3 requires mac OS 10.11 or Higher/ Windows 7 or higher)

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.

PAD MOTION

PAD MOTION is Sample Fuel’s most powerful Virtual Instrument to date and takes advantage of all 4 synthesis types (Sample, Grain, Analog Modeled, Wavetable) available in the CRE8 Engine.

Want to learn more about this library take a look at StrongMocha’s PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement by SAMPLE FUEL Review

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.

PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement is outstanding to produce pads that have a unique vibe. You need a complex motion for underscore or in the background of your main track look no further this library creates different moods and textures.

Pad Motion is one of the gems available for composer and as the other libraries from Sample Fuel made me use Halion again. Always try to combine the different features, also start to experiment for example by freezing the motion and hear what happens.
