Touch Orchestra (Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Folder / Orchestral)
I used it in a song I did for the video game The Agency (Sony Online), which I also got nominated for a Hollywood Music Award. I love the big Timpani Hits.
MR P (Loopmasters Combination Refill / Combinator Patches / Instruments / Keys)
The Pad and the Electric Keyboard sound goes well together and it’s sits well in many of my tracks.
GangsterFunk (1001 Malstrom Refill / Contributed Patches / Chris Mayhew / Lead)
I used this sound so much, I cant even track what songs or cues I’ve used this one for. I almost always change the waveform from Saw to a Sine to get a Dr. Dre Chronic feel to it. This works great for me every time.
Urban Assault (Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Sound FX)
I used this on “Just Another Day” a song I placed on Saw 4 Soundtrack. I used many FX from this patch in the bridge of the song. These sounds are very realistic and dramatic at the same time.
trancy2 (Digital Love Refill)
I use this on various cues on “Battleground Earth: Ludacris vs. Tommy Lee” on TLC. This classic trancey lead is very common in down south hip-hop tracks. For example Lil’ Jon songs have this exact type of sound featured in them.
Bless Beats Top Five
Best known for creating Wiley’s 2008 smash ‘Wearing My Rolex’, which debuted at number 2 in the singles chart, selling over 300,000 copies. Renditions which followed by the likes of Little Boots and Hot Chip for Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge session on Radio 1 took Bless Beats’ work well beyond the ears of the post-grime loving electro pop massive.
