Back with another soundhound, today we checking out some orchestra samples.
So though this is the first official Diginoiz review, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard form this producer.
I decided to check out Urban Avenue…..
So what is Urban Avenue?
It’s basically a collection of diverse orchestra loops geared specifically towards raw/urban music.
Not just strings, it includes horns, flutes, strings, etc…
all are played in various keys, tempos, and melodies..
very useful in urban music production.
These aren’t construction kits ( you know I like that!)
It’s just a big’ole folder of urban styled orchestra riffs and loops.
- content: 100 24 bit loops
- format: wav, acid, aiff, apple, rex2, refill
- price: $30
How do they sound?
The first thing I noticed about these loops is that most of them have a dark, street vibe to them.
This is in line with the title as well as the description on the website.
What you may not realize from the title, is that it’s a pretty diverse collection, not just strings. There’s horns, xylophones, flutes, and I even thought I heard some piano in there.
Basically it covers various instruments you would find in an orchestra, and gives you a urban slant to it.
The production itself is on point, and it doesn’t get repetitive. That is one thing I’ve always like about Fatloud, and I’m glad to see they continued it in the Diginoiz label.
Where most companies will give you thousands of loops that sound pretty identical, this collection gives you 100 very diverse loops, the styles, the sounds, the processing, everything about them keeps it diverse and thus fresh to use in your music.
Some stuff is slow and melodic, others are big and powerful, while some yet remain small and simple.
Overall you can really tell they take their time to make the most unique collections possible, by giving you as many styles of playing and production they can in one collection.
What’s the bottom line?
The bottom line is that I expect to see great things from the Diginoiz brand, since it is from the same production house as fatloud.
This is a nice, small collection of urban orchestra loops that don’t have the cliche orchestra loop sound.
Not just strings, but including various instruments gives you a well rounded collection, and since all they do is urban/pop music, it has the styles you’d like to incorporate into your music.
Sure if you want realistic orchestra loops, that sound like an orchestral arrangement, there are other options.
But if you want some unique riffs and loops, with a dark and edgy sound, then this is something to consider.
I give it a 4 out of 5 subs, I liked it, it’s useful, so much so that I wish there were more than 100 loops
But I do see the work put into each loop, so, I’ll give them a pass.
Definitely check them out over at diginioiz
