Industrial Strength releases Dubstep Massive 2 soundset

Industrial Strength has launched Dubstep Massive 2, a new pack featuring loops and patches for bass driven productions or remixes.

Industrial Strength Dubstep Massive 2

This monster pack knocks down the door with 64 NI Massive Presets. We tapped the extreme side of Dubstep to bring you more searing Womps, Risers, Sub Drops, Chainsaws, Pads, Wobbles, Wubs and Talking Bass patches. With tight Drum Loops, heavy Bass Grooves, and downright infectious Synth sounds, you can bring fresh new power to your tracks.

The synth patches included in this pack were created exclusively for the all-powerful NI Massive while all the audio is keyed and tempo-matched, and presented in 24-bit, 44.1kHz as Wav, Apple Loops and Rex.2.

This sizzling ISR set marks the second installment in Industrial Strength’s raging Dubstep Massive series. Check out Volume 1 with expanded kits for Battery, Kontakt 4, Logic EXS, and Logic ES2, plus Drum Loops produced by the almighty 6Blocc.

The pack is available for purchase for £23.95 GPB. The loops and patches are also sold separately.

Review: Bass Music 2 by Sample Tools by Cr2

The Bass Music 2 pack by Sample Tools by Cr2 is the second volume of sound packs inspired by the sound of the UK underground.

Sample Tools by Cr2 Bass Music 2

There are HUGE rolling basslines, tight key-labelled kicks, expertly crafted bass hits, chord one-shots, groove-infused drum loops and striking FX sounds and fills. You also get 8 key-labelled songstarters comprising a mixed idea and all component stems.

The loops and samples are grouped in folders for bass, chords, drums, and synth. Massive presets are included for single shot samples made with this synth, and a few presets for Sylenth1, FM8, and an unspecified Togu Audio Line synth are also available.

The folder structure seems a bit odd to me. There’s a chord hits folder but no chord loops. The synth loops folder includes some chord loops, yet there is no synth hits folder. The files include bpm (mostly 124 bpm) and key info where applicable. Here’s a breakdown of the samples and patches:

  • 28 bass hits + 20 Massive patches, 3 FM8 patches, 2 Sylenth1 patches and 2 TAL patches (aupreset).
  • 39 bass loops.
  • 23 chord hits + 21 Massive patches.
  • 107 drum hits (23 claps & snares, 20 hats, 44 kicks, 20 perc).
  • 19 drum loops with full, kick free, perc, stripped and top loop version (93 loops in total).
  • 25 sound fx hits.
  • 40 synth loops.

For the melodic parts (bass & synth loops) MIDI files are available so you can use your own sounds and modify the melodies. Eight songstarters with loops & MIDI files show the potential of this pack.

The pack also includes 3 demo tracks, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live 9 templates, and 4 videos with tutorials on how to make groovy hi-hats, fm & 808 bass hits, reese basses, and studio productivity tips by Mike Monday.

Check out some of the sounds of this pack in the demo.

So what do I think?

Product: Bass Music 2 by Sample Tools by Cr2
Format: 24-bit samples + patches
Price: £15.99 GBP
Like: Quality sounds, especially loops
Don’t like: Folder structure
Verdict: 8/10

Bass Music 2 provides a nice batch of sounds for bass music like garage and underground house.

The bass loops and samples are solid, as are the chord and synth sections which include some lovely warm tones. The drum loops have plenty of shuffle and with the included drum hits you can add to the loops or create your own beats.

With access to Massive patches and MIDI loops the pack does justice to the production toolkit tag it carries.

In short, Bass Music 2 packs a lot of punch for a great price.
