About: GRIP Valve Drive Compressor
Grip brings together an interesting combination of features, and we particularly like its responsive Compressor. The Valve Drive is a bit trickier to get down with, though, and needs to be handled with care. Nonetheless, this is a good plugin for the price, and one capable of adding plenty of colour. Rating: 8/10 + Value Award!

About: Massive Electro House Tools
A well presented library of 65 patches for Native Instruments’ Massive synth, accompanied by eight MIDI file construction kits – simply point each track to a Massive with the speci?ied patch loaded. The setup works well and the patches are fantastic – tough, characterful, on-trend and making good use of Massive’s macros to enable quick but effective editing. Rating: 8/10

About: CableDance – u-He ACE
The vast majority of the patches fall into the bass and synth categories, and range from fat round (CableGuy Bass) to the bright and edgy (SmackSnack Synth). Overall, sounds are very crispy and responsive, demonstrating ACE`s architecture well. The only thing lacking is a few more sequences and effects patches. Rating: 8/10

About: CableSphere – u-He ACE
In short CableSphere is a solid set, but make sure to listen to the audio demo to see if it has the type of sounds you are after. For a more complete array of sounds it might make sense to get the whole Cable series of soundsets instead.

About: Futured E-2 Expander – NI Massive
What a beautiful collection of sounds! You get a wide range of sounds, from sharp eerie atmospheres to lush plucked sounds to amazing organic pads. Browsing the presets I found just about every single patch completely inspiring.

There’s so many products out here, there’s no point in spending my time covering stuff I don’t like or wouldn’t use. Though I come across and test quite a lot of different products, I only put up reviews on the site of the stuff that grabs my personal attention.

About: Thrillogy-1 – Virus TI
If you find yourself looking for some more patches for your Virus TI, definitely give these a look. Though they are aimed at trance and electronic styles, I find the sounds are just really well programmed and will please anyone that loves a good synth sound. Rating: 4.5/5

About: GRIP Valve Drive Compressor
In a world filled with vintage compressors emulations, this is a breeze of fresh air. It can sound pretty unique while adding lots of character and warmth to your tracks. You can use it on pretty much every track, but, to my taste, I like it a lot on bass guitar and vocals. It can surely add lots of character if you use it in the mix buss, but you gotta be sure that is what you want and that it suits the song you are working on. If you are looking for something new and different with lots of character, you should definitely try this compressor! I know I’ll be using it a lot, and it might just be my to-go compressor along with the LA-2A for bass and vocals.

About: Vintage Movie Vocals 2
But the samples themselves were cleaned up in Resonance Sound’s high-end studio, edited and mastered to give you that production-ready sound. What I like about this pack is the variety of vocal phrases it offers – it’s really great for spicing up breaks and drops in a song. If your arrangement is lacking something in the vocal phrases department, Vintage Movie Vocals definitely has the samples that can take your track to the next level.

About: GRIP Valve Drive Compressor
Ob eine neutrale oder eine charaktervolle Dynamikbearbeitung mit plakativer Sättigung gefragt ist: Dank seines pfiffigen Hybrid-Designs begeistert GRIP als vielseitiger, musikalisch klingender Kompressor, der seine Stärken nicht nur bei der Bearbeitung von Gesang und Instrumentensignalen ausspielt. Auch das Zusammenschweißen von Signalgruppen gelingt überzeugend. Ein Lob verdient zudem die intuitive Bedienoberfläche sowie der günstige Preis des erfreulich Ressourcen-schonenden Plug-ins. Rating: 5/6 + Preistip

About: MonoGrizzly 2 – Bass Synthesizer
Zu einem günstigen Preis erhalten Sie mit MonoGrizzly 2 einen kleinen, aber feinen Mono-Synth mit einem Faible für aggressive Bass- und Lead-Sounds. Angesichts seiner Stärken wie dem charaktervollen, rohen Klang und den gelungenen Presets sieht man wohlwollend über die genannten Mankos hinweg.

About: DSP-Drums 01 ACE – Drum Samples
The percussion would work great in electro house and anything looking for a high quirk factor. There`s a lot of creativity in the sound design, the sound quality is top notch, and the price is very reasonable. Rating: 9/10

My mission is to provide selected materials (plugins, video tutorials, presets, samples) that represent some quality. I guess I act a little bit as … google.

About: Divorce 1
E-Play Divorce is a great addition to my arsenal. I love to layer it and overall I’m impressed. You can’t compare it to another product because the sounds are pretty much unique. It consumes low CPU and the price is very fair. As far as I know, demo version will be available very soon…

About: CableDance – u-He ACE
Zunächst wirkt das alles eher unaufregend und „normal“, aber im Zusammenspiel sind es genau die Sounds, die man prima als i-Tüpfelchen brauchen kann.

About: CableForce – u-He ACE
Die Bässe wirken etwas poppiger und voluminöser, die Synthsounds harmonischer als bei CableDance. Das Highlight sind hier die Leads, mit denen man typische fette Hooklines spielen kann. Hier sägen die Oszis, dass es nur so einen Freude ist, und die eingebauten Effekte tun ihr Übriges für jede Menge Hypaa-Hypaa-Sound.

About: CableSphere – u-He ACE
Die Pads würde ich „typisch modular“ nennen. Wiederum sehr fett und nach vorne arbeitend, aber etwas einfacher zu beherschen als bei CableForce. Die Wavetable-Sounds wirken teils kühl und schneidend, liefern aber Wellenformen, die man von einen solchen Modularsynth nicht unbedingt erwartet hätte. Auch hier also wieder fast nur brauchbares Material ohne Ausschussware.

About: Futured E-1 Beats & Bytes – NI Massive
Die minimalen Club-Styles sollten es Ihnen angetan haben, wenn Sie dieses Soundset einsetzen wollen: Bässe, Sequence- und Synthsounds finden sie hier. Fast alle sind sie laut und heftig, kaum einer kommt bescheiden oder zurückhaltend daher. Meistens sägt und dröhnt es böse ausden Membranen, viel Filter-FM wurde eingesetzt.

About: Futured E-2 Expander – NI Massive
Ambient, bedrohliche Filmmusik (Sci-Fi und Horror) oder auch elektronische Club-Intros lassen sich damit bestens vertonen. Biestig sind sie aber auch hier, sanften Schönklang gibt es nur selten und auch keine ausgedehnten Workstation-Fantasy-Sounds àla Korg.

About: Futured E-3 Hardsync – NI Massive
Trance und Co. ist bei diesem Set angesagt, und dementsprechend gibt es Bässe, Sequencer-Sounds und vor allem Leads. Sie alle sind fett und böse und sägen sich schön durch alle Membranen, die ihnen im Wege stehen.

About: DSP-Drums 01 ACE – Drum Samples
Furthermore the product delivers crisp and experimental drumshots from claps to kicks to various percussion elements, which makes “DSP-Drums ACE” probably one of the best choices for a very unique electro production including never-heard sounds: almost every sample is inspiring as such, besides the sounddesign being top notch: precise cuts, very different sounds.
