Yo what’s good fam!
Today I’m reviewing a product from a new company named Big Werks
The product is called “Book of Sounds”
Let’s check it out!
So what is Book Of Sounds?
It’s a Kontakt library dedicated to urban, trap, and edm style production.
It comes with a custom Kontakt interface including a dedicated fx page and an arp page.
The library covers everything from tuned 808 patches, to pianos, brass, pads, leads, strings, keys, and more.
With 180 patches there’s a lot to go through so I wanted to make sure to dig into the library and see what it’s all about.
- content: 5gb, 180 patches
- format: Kontakt 5
- price: $45

How does it sound?
There’s some really good sounds in here, I definitely found some stuff I could use instantly.
I asked about the creation of the library and there’s a mixture of synthesized and real live instrument samples which is cool.
Some of them seem to have some heavy reverb on the patches but it’s quick to go in and adjust that to taste.
I found some great pianos, pads, a bunch of leads, and some really usable strings.
There were also a couple of great sounding guitar patches in there as well.
If you like thick brass ensembles there’s some of that in there also.
Overall it’s got a nice quality to it, plenty of variety from smooth to epic, even some distorted and “phasey” style sounds.
So what’s the bottom line?
I’m always interested in new companies so I stay on the lookout for new sound developers.
I will say there were some really cool sounds in this library, definitely usable and the control over the fx makes it quick to tweak to your own style.
The inclusion of an arp page makes it quick to add movement to your sounds, as does the lfo and gate options.
Overall, I give Book Of Sounds 4.5 out of 5 subs, I think it’s a nice collection of useful sounds that don’t take an incredible amount of space or load time.
There’s also an original drum kit included, has about 100 sounds covering kicks, snares, claps, hats, percussions, fx, and even a few vox samples.
