Impact Soundworks has released CYCLOPS, described as a collection of modern electronic samples offering music producers the tools they need to create hit EDM tracks in popular genres like future bass, electro house, trap, synthwave, and more. They say that, featuring over 1,000 oneshot samples, drum loops, MIDIs, and 360 presets for the Serum virtual synth, the library includes all important sound categories and styles. Here’s more details direct from the company…
CYCLOPS was produced by veteran EDM producer Jordan Aguirre of braille.audio, who brought his two decades of experience making top-tier tracks in a huge range of genres. The samples are crafted from his personal collection, created using synths, drum machines, and other hardware tools.
The drums of the library include kick and snare sounds categorized by genre (i.e. Future Bass, Dubstep, 80s), cymbals and hi-hats, percussion, synth and bass stabs, FX, reverses, and vocal cuts. Over 200 loops are also available, split up into full and 'stem' versions, plus MIDI files to inspire compositions and individual synth or bass parts.
Serum users will find a treasure trove of useful patches in categories like playable 808s, bass, modern (edgy) bass, leads, plucks, pads, FX, and arps. All patches feature "Macro" knob control for easy tweaking.
