Sounds like the Nashville-inspired country-rock-pop hits that are all over the radio. You can almost hear Carrie Underwood singing. Seriously, great sounds in a variety of feels. It even has the sound of the snare drum rim being played, like in the beginning of ZZ Top's "La Grange."
Pure energy, very raw. A real drummer pounding the skins with muscle. I wanted to try to write a song as perfectly killer as Kiss' "I Love It Loud," and this pack is what I needed!
These are the guitar sounds, phrases, and parts that you will need in so many of your productions. It was a no-brainer for me - I put it in my cart as soon as I listened to the walkthroughs. Now that I'm able to search through the entire collection, it's just continually reassuring. Bread and butter, energy phrases that don't step on your melody, and also some "I didn't know I needed that until now" moments.
Also a word of thanks to Phil - I had a little difficulty with a download, and he personally sorted it out for me quickly. So kind of you - really a great idea that's incredibly helpful to music creators, held together with care. Thank you.
This is great production. The highest compliment for any soundscape, in my estimation, is that it creates a setting in your mind's eye before the story is even told. Kudos! I'm there.
I'm finding it a great companion in songwriting as well - just a fantastic collection of kits!!
I was so caught by this collection when I listened to the walkthroughs, and again when I began to hear more of its breadth after buying. The magical discovery I am making in soloing the layers - the acoustic work is like having another collection. Play the full track and you are listening to great, soft, emotional and verb'd out pop. Solo the acoustic, and I think I'm listening to a David Wilcox record. It's really stunning work. We Sound Human - keep creating!
It's always so gratifying to buy a sample pack or a plugin based on hearing a demo, and then find out that it was as good as you'd hoped. This is better than that.
The more I dig through this collection, the more nuggets I find. I've already found guitar parts in here that I wish I could have used to replace in some previous productions. Don't forget to listen to all the layers - that's where the magic is. Yes, they all work in concert with one another, but also, separately, they lead your creativity down other avenues you weren't expecting. Thank you for this!
This is the first library I encountered at We Sound Human, and it made me want to create something. Immediately. How often can you say that? It's not just the wonderful sounds you hear coming out of your speakers - it's also the thought that went into them. This may sound overblown, but I assure you it's not - the way the kits are packaged gives me boldness to face the blank page!!
For me, you have erased the biggest obstacle between inspiration and creation.
OK, I wanted to dip a toe in and see if the sounds were worthwhile. In no time, I bought almost a dozen more packs. Admittedly, I mostly need drums (I like to do the other instruments myself). But ALL the sounds -- guitars and basses and keys -- are top notch. Also, the company's owner, Phil, gives you his cell number in case you have any questions. I called, left a message, and he promptly called back... even though he was on the way to the airport to catch a plane! Never had that happen before!
This one has awesome shuffles and swings, dynamic straight-time feels, and a great train beat. Also, there's variety in the sounds of the kits -- some snares have more ring than others, but everything sounds good and clean. These drums can make anyone sound good when they play the blues.
These drums are perfect for the Texas blues/Stevie Ray Vaughn thing! It's as if Chris Layton himself (from Double Trouble) laid down the grooves. Killer!
I used this one together with some reverb-y synth chords and a bassline I wrote, and it sounds like a Coldplay hit single. Great-sounding drumkit!
Super-powerful and kickin'! So many options, too. This one is right for high-energy, in-your-face music.
I dig these drum sounds -- probably the most realistic, human-sounding stuff I've ever found. Now it's easy and affordable to get killer drum tracks. At any tempo!
Drums sound great, with warm and well-rounded tones. Perfect for surf rock, but also can be used for other high-energy music. Easiest way to get great-sounding drums!
It's common knowledge that great guitar players teeter on the edge of ...., let's say unpredictable. That alone is reason enough to invest in a guitar solution that won't talk back, ignore what you want, or not show up at all. The beauty of any of these loop libraries in a general sense is that they give you the freedom of trial and error... and when you stumble onto that perfect lick or phrasing, you get the credit for being a musical genius.
If you like to get down to the business of making your music and would rather avoid the frustration of your drummer having to be a bail hearing, or your guitarist just found out he has to be quarantined for a month...then give this and the other We Sound Human libraries a serious listen. It's a two-edge sword of being the sole decision-maker of your songs... but if you are one to let your music mind roam and experiment, this library can bring out qualities in your tracks that you didn't realize were there.
For the person that has a cutting edge recording studio, a band with all the chops (and willing to take direction), and a surplus of inspiration.... you could save a few dollars and not buy this or one of the many other loop libraries here. For the rest of us, there has never been a more intuitive and high quality alternative to ridding yourself of writer's/creative/production-block. If you have a song or two that you want to submit somewhere but it's just a little shy of that genre-specific edge to get it over the hump.... a solution to consider is We Sound Human.
This is the country guitarist library for country guitarists. I would know, I am one. And if you aren't a country guitarist, I'm sure it's annoying when you don't have Chet Atkins, Danny Gatton, Vince Gill, Albert Lee, Lenny Breau or Glenn Campbell on hand to record a session for you isn't it. Well this is about as close as you'll ever get without bringing in a pro. I use the samples and loops in this pack to produce demos on my laptop when I'm on the road, finished recordings in the studio, and to light the creative spark when I'm having trouble getting ideas out of my head and into a song.
I love We Sound Human because they always deliver a product that lives up to their name. So many other companies produce samples that sound so overly quantized and compressed they might as well have been made in midi. The authentic and eclectic recordings run from Redneck Jazz, Backwoods Finger Picking, Nashville Gentle electric and acoustic licks, tones of Slide and Steel Guitar ranging from raw bluesy sliding riffs, to haunting ambient Pedal Steel swells. Just owning this pack inspired me to get back to practicing more because I realized I'd not been getting the full potential out of my guitars,
This is probably my favorite sample pack I've ever bought. Such a wide array of rhythms, tempos, and grooves, across the spectrum of popular Americana from the early 70's right up until today. It's got all the earthy raw tones and instrumentation of country music, but delivered in a way that's perfect for people who don't love country music. Plenty of authentic heartland strumming without some of the more hokey aspects, and still full of raw Rock'n'Roll energy that is often lost in the overly slick Nashville production. It's got chunky blues grooves right from the delta without the limitations that blues often has in song and chord structure.
If you're writing songs for radio or creating an original score for film, and you have any interest at all in the sounds of The Band, Springsteen, Creedence, James Taylor, Tom Petty, The Traveling Wilburys, Gillian Welch, Gram Parsons, Jackson Browne, Houndmouth etc. This is a must for your audio arsenal.
Acoustic Guitars, Electrics, Electric and Acoustic Resonator Dobros, Banjos, Mandolins, Pedal Steel; Drums hard rocking 4 to the floor, or gently swinging in both 3:4 time, and 4:4 with 8th triplets, snares on and just of the beat. Honestly if you can't make Americana with what's in this pack, you are confused about the genre.
In terms of producing a finished product, as usual We Sound Human are at the absolute leading edge of anyone selling sample libraries.
The drums are multi-tracked using the same microphones are approach on every recording so you really can mix and match the rhythms and grooves from each song without any noticeable tone change. I especially love that in this pack, all the Bass tracks have been recorded with the Direct Input and Amplified Sound allowing you to really get in there and get exactly the tone you want. I can't say enough about this pack.
I am mainly a trailer music composer/producer so I cover a wide range of genres. Sound packs like We Sound Human SPY really help me out getting that live recorded vibe here and there in super tight deadlines, where live recording is just not feasible due to the quick turnaround.
So easy to use. I want it all.
Very Good sound and simply to use. I love the multitrack.
I'd written a fun and lyrically complex/clever song in a Blue Grass style and only had my keyboard with auto accompaniment as the first demo. Ho-Hum.... I found We Sound Human and ordered their Bluegrass Sample Library in ACID/WAV format. I was able to import the library and slice and dice one of their kits with my DAW (Cakewalk/SONAR) until it became a great 5-piece back-up band for my song, which was a completely different chord structure than any of the kits offered. A great investment for just one song! And I'm going to keep using them. Thanks to Phil Symonds and crew for answering my questions and making it a great transaction. I can TOTALLY recommend Bluegrass from We Sound Human.
Mariachi.Is.Absolutely.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMAZINGGGG!! Done and Done! So human, so real, takes me back to my childhood! Viva Mexico and We Sound Human!
I have a lot of drum loops. And I just thought "Hey, give this collection a shot." I am actually pretty blown away. Usually you'll have one or two beats that fit in what you're working on and the rest are either too basic or two busy. This collection is amazing! Every folder has loops I can use within a bunch of my projects. Working with them feels like listening to a real drummer doing his/her thing. It fits right in the pocket for how I work. Great job We Sound Human!
