Whatsup! It’s time for another dose of Big Fish and today we are checking out an instrument from Fixed Noised.
This is an electro, urban, experimental, minimal styled instrument… so let’s check it out
What is Rhythm Objekt?
This is a Kontakt Player instrument that contains 4gb of sounds created for use in electro, urban, rnb styled music.
The sounds were all created by Jimmy Edgar, a master when it comes to this hybrid style of soulful electro and urban rnb sounds.
You get sounds in 4 categories, Loops, Chords, Experimental, and Drum Kits.
Now these are not just traditional sounds…
they are more on the electro side, a lot of chords and hits, as well as some nice stabs and pads.
- Content: 4gb of loops, drums, synths and other instruments
- Format: Kontakt/Kontakt Player
- Price: $199.99
How does it sound?
Pretty much what you’d expect from an electro/urban focused library.
The sounds are very synth based but also smooth and silky.
I wouldn’t call this an “edgy” instrument, as most of the sounds are more lush but you can definitely find some aggressive sounds in the bunch.
As far as the quality, it’s very well recorded and programmed. Again, the sounds are exactly what you’d expect, smooth chords, weird stabs and hits, with a few processed drums thrown into the mix.
So what’s the bottom line?
I liked it, it wasn’t ground breaking in my mind but it was a good solid collection.
I gave this one a 3.5 out of 5 subs, it’s above average for sure, but I don’t feel it’s ground breaking or standard setting. It’s good solid library for the specific style it’s made for, but there are plenty of instruments and libraries that cover this style as well.
The thing that sets it apart from being average is probably the sound quality, they really did some good recording on this. I wasn’t too excited about the actual graphics on the interface but that’s a minor thing.
I could see myself using this as “hot sauce” on productions….more for the extra hits and layers than as a main compositional tool.
I like the fact that you get the similar style of instruments that you would find in electro/urban loop libraries, but you get the play them yourself instead of chop the loops.
All in all, it’s a good instrument, and if you like these types of sounds you won’t be let down.
