Sample FX Layering : In FX Drooms, each of the dry percussion samples has been processed with 24 esoteric reverb and sound effect templates obtained by stressing DSP, hardware and convolution sources.

Mixed with the solid dry sources, the included FX templates give the library a distinctive glommy psycho (acoustic) athmosphere characterized by incredible hi end and definition.
