Review: ModeAudio Atlas
This pack from ModeAudio allows you to sprinkle a selection of shoegaze guitar riffs and synthetic beats into your mixes.
Atlas fuses shoegaze guitars and analogue chillwave riffs with upbeat, organic live drums to form a mesmerising blend of electronic and live sounds across 10 Construction Kits. The pack weighs in at 563MB, with 203 loops of guitars and bass guitars, bass synths, pads, effects and lead synths, synth effects and drums and percussion. As a nice touch to aid with flexibility, the guitars are presented both dry and with effects, although you’ll most likely end up using the effected versions, as they’re well processed and drenched in atmosphere.
The hybrid acoustic and electronic drum beats are excellent, with plenty of saturation and a reverb to add character, although some may find this a little intrusive. On top of this, there are also 76 MIDI files, 68 drum samples and 69 tail samples to bring the loops to a smooth conclusion, plus 10 Ableton projects, so you can experiment with how all the loops lock together.
