Ghost Syndicate are killing it right now with their Dubstep Packs . I like the way they don't go for the easy option of commerciality, with a very unique leftfield approach.
I like this pack for its very dub influenced sounds and textures with a melancholic vibe with a very heavy vibes and dark undertones.
This pack is chock filled with everything you need to stand out from the crowd. I love the fact you get the full construction kits which in my opinion is a fantastic bonus to recreate imbleshes, and create a different feel to the originals, but more importantly giving any producer in this genre and beyond the building blocks to get creative.
Mostly everything you may need in this pack has been covered, from full Drum Loops, to Top loops, Percussion, FX, Music Loops and of course One Shots, Drum Fills and Synth Loops.
So much choice and much much more, you even get Ableton Drum Racks which is a must in any pack these days and should really extend to all D.A.W!
The only disappointment would have been Midi options and Kontakt Sampler Patches otherwise this would have been a 10/10
I love the layout of this pack as much as the quality of the sounds themselves: deeply user-friendly in ways unique to Ghost Syndicate. The separated bass layers are a revelation in use and the 'chop' parts strike a perfect pliable balance. This pack goes extra steps for flexibility and creativity so if the nature of the demos is in your wheelhouse know that they're the tip of the iceberg. There's a dub flavor in place here that I can't get enough of and both for the intended genre and beyond this is another absolute win of a collection.
Very impressed with this pack and the endless possibilities it provides. Absolutely on point with the percussion, melody and FX, in fact, everything in this pack is a vibe. This one is an essential to expand your UK Dubstep artillery on the more deeper, darker side.
I've been a big fan of Ghost Syndicate packs for a while now and Erebus confirms why. Although primarily aimed at dubstep, you can used elements from this pack in any deep and dark style. Amazing one shot drum hits mostly pre-reverbed and ready to create big room filling drums. What I really like about GS packs are the way the bass loops are split into full, sub and mid-range variations which makes further processing and resampling real simple. And the same can be said for the multiples of synth melody loops. Having 3-5 to pick from when made from similar synths/instruments but in different variations will help you use them and keep the track interesting with slight melody changes. Also be sure to check the "dub siren"s in the "bonus" folder, you'll definitely use these!
