Review: ModeAudio Hover drones & textures

ModeAudio Hover

With the Hover sample library, ModeAudio takes on the world of drones and textures.

Packed full of strange, floating tones, waves of noise, rasping, metallic textures, deep bass and circuit-bent synths, this release brings you 100 carefully prepared atmospheres to pour seamlessly over your mixes.

All the sounds move to their own internal rhythm, dancing and metamorphosing into exciting, unusual sonic forms.

The samples are categorized in 6 folders:

  • Ambiances (30)
  • Bass Drones (20)
  • Guitar Drones (10)
  • Metallic Drones & Textures (10)
  • Noise Drones & Textures (15)
  • Synth Drones (15)

The ambiance themes come with 3 samples each that can be layered. So you have something like a main bass or synth drone sound that you can layer with a texture, soundscape, some noise fx, etc. Other folders simply have a collection of individual 20 to 58 second recordings.

All files have descriptive titles including an indication of the type of sound, where applicable (noise, texture, bass, scape, etc).

The audio clip below demonstrates some of the sounds included in this pack.

So what do I think?

Product: Hover by ModeAudio
Format: Wav (44.1kHz/24 bit)
Price: £12 GBP
Like: Nice variety of sounds, well designed
Don’t like: some samples could be longer
Verdict: 8/10

Dark brooding bass, evocative melodic guitar scapes, sputtering noises, otherworldly synths, rhythmic crackles, reverb drenched goodness…

ModeAudio has recorded a nice variety of sounds using a diverse collection of sound sources. These drones and textures are on the more creative end of the genre, with lots of movement and dynamics. I personally like this a lot, but for some of the samples I really wish they were longer to allow a more elaborate development of the sound.

In short, the Hover pack includes a lovely bunch of well designed, quality samples that are great for cinematic/underscore works, game soundtracks, ambient music, and more.

ModeAudio has launched Future Trap, a collection of presets for Native Instruments Massive and MIDI loops.

ModeAudio Future Trap

Future Trap is a sound library that pays deep respect to Trap’s roots yet looks hungrily onwards towards it’s exciting future. Combining the deep and dark qualities of early Dirty South, including its thunderous 808-style bass, nightmarish tuned percussion and zippy arp synths, with the slick and sleek nature of contemporary EDM, this release manages to sound both classic and refreshingly forward-thinking at the same time.

The 50 included presets cover a wealth of musical ground, from razor sharp siren leads, deep, quaking basses, lazy, pitch-modulated pads and acrobatic arps to punchy percussion, muscular SFX and beyond. All are infused with a boundless, bouncing energy that allows them to sit right up front with the most cutting-edge EDM productions.
We’ve programmed all 8 macro controls of every single preset for fully adjustable flexibility and the 50 accompanying, key-labelled MIDI loops will allow you to instantly audition each sound. Propel your Trap & EDM music fearlessly into the future with Future Trap – Massive Presets & MIDI Loops now!

The sound pack is available for purchase for £12 GBP.
