AMBIVALENCE is a unique royalty free sound pack with the focus on extremly long hand-crafted evolving drones/soundscapes and on interchangeable synth loops for music styles like Electronica, Chillout, Ambient and as well for cinematic sound tracks.
All sounds are instantly usable, but offer enough flexibility to "personalize" them by further processing or mangling. Your imagination and your creativity is the only limit! Although the sounds are very dense, they were just gently processed to give you maximum freedom to integrate them into your projects or productions.
The sounds and loops cover various moods from such as positive, relaxed and melodical to serious, dark and ominous. AMBIVALENCE has a size of more than 1 GB and provides
- 32 long drones and soundscapes
- 32 "Main Loops"
- 133 "Loop Elements"
All sounds are in 24 Bit/44.1 Khz WAV format and, of course, are normalized and free of DC offset.
The drones and soundscapes are 16, 32 or 64 bars long (at 120 BPM), so most of them have a length of more than one or two minutes. These long samples have only short fade outs at the end to give you the freedom to determine the optimal release times for your productions within your sampler or your DAW software on your own.
All loops are at 120 BPM, 4 or 8 bars long and are carefully edited for seemless looping without glitches.
The "Main Loops" are small, but complex musical miniatures, consisting of vintage synth lines, modulated analogue step sequences and arpeggios, sweeping pads, atonal fx loops and various other sounds that are already mixed together with different levels and pannings. Simply add your drum and/or percussion loops of choice and use these "Main Loops" instantly in your productions.
The so called "Loop Elements" are looped, isolated layers from the "Main Loops", but they are centered and at full level now. Each "Loop Element" again constists of several layers on its own. Most of these "Loop Elements" are interchangeable among themselves. This allows you to create 1001 new loop variations or to build up an arrangement progression for the "Main Loops". Of course, you can use these "Loop Elements" as well to "spice up" your existing projects.
Although AMBIVALENCE does not contain any drum and percussion loops, we decided to include the drum sounds we used in the the demo song to the sound pack as a small bonus.

"Fazit: Also was soll ich hier sagen, wenn ich freiwillig den Sonntagnachmittag mit der Schaffung einer musikalischen Reise an das Ende unserer Galaxie verbringe und dann am Montag dazu auch noch ein Video (OK war nicht so aufwändig) erstelle, dann muss da schon was sein, was mich begeistert hat. Ambivalence von Perry ist hervorragend für die Schaffung von Soundtracks oder auch Intros geeignet, gerade die Elektroniker unter Euch dürften hier eine sehr interessante Sammlung an Loops und Klanglandschaften (Soundscapes) finden. Kurz gesagt, für 15,- Euro kann man hier eigentlich nichts falsch machen!"
