Ueberschall´s Electrolines is a further volume in their popular Liquid Instruments series. We´ve looked at a number of there (...) Suffice to say that this approach makes the supplied phrases much more versatile then the quantity alone might suggest.
As indicated by the name, Electrolines is primarily a collection of bass and lead lines. The 800MB of material is organised into 78 ´themes´, with original recording tempos that tend to cluster around a club-friendly 130bpm. These themes are not construction kits, but instead contain multiple versions of a single melodic phrase, with each version played using a different synth sound ot with different processing applied.
The sound sources themselves sound big, fat and analogue and, given the musical target (serious club-orientated Techno, Hard House and Trance, for example) they´re spot on. The processing, including the application of lots of different filtering, means there´s plenty of variety in the sounds in a particular theme. The basic sounds go from thumping bass though to aggressive leads, with some of the themes containing as many as 20 variations. Indeed, some of the sounds are pretty extreme - so if you do audition, take care with your playback levels or you might find you speaker cones flapping on the floor.
The playing is equally extreme. While a small number of the themes are gentler in nature, in general, the ´melodic´ content is challenging; this material is not going to find it´s way into too many romantic love songs. Less obviously melodic material by Tiesto or Underworld, for example, might get you into the right ballpark and, in the main, I would think that the material is more obviously suited to tracks aimed at clubs rather than the mainstream commercial music charts.
Given that this is a collection of lead and bass lines, it doesn´t stand on it´s own and obviously need to to add the other elements necessary to create a complete track. While drums and percussion will be relatively straightforward, the Melodyne-based engine is a distinct plus here, as it makes it easier to combine these phrases with material from other loop libraries or your own performances. This flexibility, and the sheer quantity of material provided, certainly means the Electrolines gives you a decent bang for your buck. However, this library is aimed at quite a specialist market, so I´d recommend that you try to audition before making a purchase.
Rating: 5 Stars
Nothing for sophisticated musicians but friends of bad vintage sounds that scream for tweaking.
(...) The Electrolines come with the Liquid-Player that has its focus completely on tonal loops and makes them more flexible than any other player: the included Melodyne-Engine allows stretching and pitching almost without any artefacts so that you can suite each sound exactly to your project. The loops are seperated in their basicsounds: If you call up a preset you can trigger different variations from your keyboard. Ugly and rough, sometimes with simpel saw-synthsounds and racing 16th. Nothing for sophisticated musicians but friends of bad vintage sounds that scream for tweaking.
