A very useful patch for movie scores and cinematic effects in music tracks: lots of deep, down-pitched sounds with power and punch for an epic, out-of-this-world sound!
This patch uses layers of high-pitched natural snares and provides typical jungle and drum n'bass sounds .
This patch combines low-pitched sounds (for the body of the sounds) and high pitched electro snares (for the attack and the precision). With a nice balance of power and precision, the resulting sounds will be perfect for industrial music, music for pictures…
