Random Sample Pack Review!


I'd say in case you didn't know but actually I am 100% positive you don't, I have recently started making electro! All types of genres but as I am new to this I am pretty bad so don't expect a link to my Soundcloud! This post isn't about that though. I just stumbled upon an amazing sample pack made by Deadmau5. If you don't know who Deadmau5 is you should probably hit the play button on the video below.


So anyway the sample pack is called Deadmau5 XFER and it is awesome. Apparently he made it because he was tired of hearing Vengeance in everything, which I understand. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the instruments and effects. I was most astonished that the loops in it don't suck and theres like 350 of them! Granted not all of them are perfect but with some slicing they could be. Listening to the loops I get... inspired which is exactly what they are supposed to do. Vengeance loops, or at least the ones I have, don't do that for me. 

I'll be honest right now and say I bought it without thinking, but it said Deadmau5 on it, cmon! This is one of those rare times that a compulsive buy wasn't regretted almost immediately after purchase. All-in-all I would say if you are into electro and not just Hau5 (see what I did) definitely pick up this pack if you are in the market for one! :)

I know this is kind of a different post, but I figure if it has something to do with sound I can put it up. It also isn't as in-depth or well worded as my reviews of my headphones, but I am short on time! What do you guys think?

Deadmau5 is everywhere now.
When he performs he looks like Daft Punk 2.0

Dedmau4 is my neighbour. We play intsruments together and I would like to seriously thank you for posting this, the time you took to type this out from your brain to the keyboard to the Internet! Man. I can't even begin to fathom how much this post means to me. Like, really. It's crazy. I'm sitting here just minding my own business and BAM! I decided to read your blog for no apparent reason. What luck I have today... I think I shall be showing it to dedmau and he will be entirely filled with joy upon seeing it. In fact he will be so joyful that I'm sure I could hook you guys up - for a recording session! Please post more like this mate. I believe in you! I'll be here for EVERY POST........

Don't really like Deadmau5, but the pack sounds interesting, you think you could post a quick sample or something next time?

No problem Mac! I genuinely enjoy the blog, and if I can help out at all, it'd be a pleasure! On a side note, Deadmau5 is amazing!

Warlaw said...

I've never been a big fan of deadmau5. For some reason, this type of music unnerves. Don't ask me why, it's like having an irrational fear only replace fear with discomfort.
