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: £15 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.
