analogue-experimentsMode Audio has released Analogue Experiments, a collection of synth loops and textures for varoius EDM music styles like dubstep, electro, trap etc.

We’ve scoured the basement, dusted everything down and this is what we found – the EMS Synthi A, one of the oldest and most revered analogue synthesizers ever built. Notoriously fickle and unpredictable, we’ve let the beautiful chaos of this synth come to the fore in this Synth Loops pack.

Our lab coats are dirtied, the work surfaces are covered in debris but out of the destruction has come Analogue Experiments! All of the artefacts which give the Synthi A it’s character – crackle, detuning oscillators and drifting LFOs – have been included in these loops, offering you all of the crazed vitality of the original synth.

Analogue Experiments (FL Studio version) consists of 120 Acid WAV Loops and a bonus folder with three FLP project files.
The loops are mainly screams, gurgles, noise, clicks and crosstalk with BPM ranges between 70 and 170. These are perfect for adding background presence to your drum loops and synth lines. For example, if you create a cool synth melody, you can spice it up by layering it with a loop from this collection.

Demo:

I like the sounds for their warm and analog feel, the recording quality is professional with all samples provided as 24 Bit WAV. The sound is flat and placed in middle-back, the stereo space is managed perfectly.

This morning I used a cheap Akai LPD8 pad controller and I created some cool percussion beats with Analogue Experiments, simply by slicing, playing with ADSR, reversing etc the loops. Many people judge a sample pack by listening the actual sound, not by previewing the sounds they can create with it. I can only say that this sample pack has a great applicability.

Overall, I recommend Analogue Experiments sample pack for all the people looking for that authentic analogue ‘dirt noise’ in their tracks. Also I recommend it for the loop freaks like me :).

Monday, February 3rd, we’ll launch a simple competition hosted by our friends from Mode Audio. You’ll have the chance to win all the four sample packs we reviewed last month. Stay tuned!
