Today I’m back with another sound hound for ya! Gotta checkout the sounds!
I got something different than the normal you may be used to.
My taste in music and musical styles is very diverse, as is the taste and styles of the folks on the site.
So today I want to checkout something more along the lines of house and electronic music.
I’m checking out Sounds of Revolution’s Kick Free Revolution….a follow up to their very popular volume 1.
What is Kick Free Revolution?
If I had to choose one word, it would be “groove”.
This is a collection of funky, groovy top loops…you know..
the stuff that moves the track along?
No synths, no bass, no pads or fx, straight up top loops…
glitches, blips, and other funkiness to give your track that “life”
- Content: 611 24-bit Wav loops and one-shots
- Format: Rex2, RMX, ESX, Kontakt, Apple Loops
- Price: 46,95 Euros = $64.32
How do they sound?
Authentic…at least to me.
Now I may not be an authority on house music, but I know a groove when I hear it…and I also know the types of sounds I look for.
Experimental glitches, blips and bleeps…funky breaks and percussion, all with room to add your own kicks and drums to the mix.
Well recorded, well produced and just plain fun to play.
This is the first sample collection I have reviewed from them, and I can see why people like their products…they give you what you need, nothing more.
I look at top loops as the icing on the cake, or if you want to go minimal they can be the whole cake!
But they have to sound good and be recorded well, these loops live up to that challenge.
So what’s the bottom line?
This is a good collection for those that like to step out of the norm when it comes to sounds they incorporate into their music.
Or it’s great for those specifically looking for some funky house grooves to add to their productions.
I give this collection a 4 out of 5 subs.
I like the overall feel of the collection, and it’s very useful.
I did feel it got a bit repetitive in some parts, but not much, mainly in the glitchy sounds and loops…
but then again, a glitch is a glitch and the way they were produced provides enough variety.
Taking into account the target of the collection…”top loops” it lives up to and provides a great collection of grooves you can quickly infuse into your tracks.
Go on and check them out, download some demos and see what you think. Kick Free Revolution
