I've got £85 ($144 €106) what should I buy?

Post by Floki » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:23 am

I need a new VST(s), I've only been using Harmor and I feel quite limited and the only good drums I have, I keep using them. What would you suggest that I get?
I only produce French Semi Progressive Deep Electro Dankstep

Thats like going to a grocery store and asking what would go nice with potatoes, anything really.

If you are tired of your drums go buy a drumkit, quality stuff from: http://www.goldbaby.co.nz/products.html

And if you are looking for a new synth vst, go tryout some demo's and see what you like.

Or just buy Massive?

I would just like to say that Tone2 ElectraX2, Nemesis and Gladiator (mostly gladiator) changed everything for me. Harmonic content morphing, FMing samples with each other and FMing that with a wavetable for example, resynthesis combined with FM, the insane "Modifiers" in Gladiator are some of the things that blow my mind. The Modifiers and the FM stuff mostly. Just, wow.

What type of sounds are these? Are they the "punchy things to work from" or are they processed and (nearly) ready to be used? If so - how do they sound, what genres do they fit?

And don't go with the "they are amazing and fit for everything", while that might be true on one level it can't really be the way it is - 808s are nice but saying they work for everything isn't true.

You won't have the layer and if you do its for complete aesthetics, rather than having to layer for tone or punch. The only processing I have to do with things from this pack is EQ or reverb. I barely compress.

It caters for a broad range of styles, check the demos along the side on the website. I would say this is 'THE' pack to have as a starting collection to your sample collection.

It won't have EVERYTHING and won't be your definitive pack where you won't want anything more but I would go as far to say its essential to anyone who wants to get out of the freeware domain and start working with high quality sounds.

It works great for house, dubstep, hiphop, i've used it to layer on a few dnb tunes. It'll fit most electronic music but honestly - for under 100 euro? This is probably the cheapest sample pack I've bought and has the most amount of content with the biggest range.

Essentially this is Vengence but suited towards a collection pack for a professional studio rather than bait samples aimed for bed room producers.

If memory serves, everything in my sig tune is from that pack.
