"Especially impressing are the experimental- and kick-free-loops, that can be
used particularly well as add-on-beats. [...] The samples are not just
filtered major-beats, but sound transparent and clear. Sometimes electronic
sterile, then again organic warm, all frequenzy areas are being served from
the lower middles to the heights. [...] In addition Schmitt has got a
variety of single sounds for his library in order to compose also individual
beats. [...] Very good sounding sounds, that are also interesting for all
kinds of genres. (Professional Audio Magazine 11/2008)"
"Oliver Schmitt, mastermind behind the renowned sound forge "Sounds Of
Revolution" already could make an excellent name for himself as a designer
for sound supplies for Synthesizer like JP-8000, Virus or also Nordlead. Now
his first Loop-CD is being awaited and promises a lot: Already when first
playing the drum-, bass-, breakbeat-, synth- and effect libraries one is
enthusiastic about the solid sound and the thereby high assertiveness of the
material. Here one never feels just to get one more "filling material", all
loops seem to be original and perfectly conditioned. A novelty are also the
contained 575 no-kick-loops! High recommendation!
Rating 5,5 / 6 - Recommendation of the editorial staff (BEAT - magazine
"This CD is a serious contender for the best hard dance sample CD we’ve ever heard. [..] Oliver Schmitt has done his job well, crafting over 2,700 unique samples, all of which sound wide, deep, punchy and ready for use in cutting-edge dance music." - Rating: 9/10

DJ TIESTO: "Not just loops with kicks filtered off, full spectrum! Big sounds, revolutionary and unique in it's kind."
NIC CHAGALL (Cosmic Gate): "[...] marks a new milestone in sound design. It´s the most inspiring sample cd I have ever encountered! [...] CR1 is so much better than the standard sample libraries with their boring ripped content and it rocks in ways that other developers can only dream of. Revolutionary !
BLANK & JONES: "[...] Even the kick free loops are not just low cutted, they are just programmed without the Kick, leaving the sound spectrum untouched! This gives you much more opportunities and they are fitting perfectly into your sound context."
