“…What you won’t be able to surmise from the online audio demos, though, is how fantastically usable this library is… In short, this library is elegantly simple in purpose and brilliant in execution. I’ll be keeping it close at hand. Rating: 5/5” Sound on Sound Magazine”
“…Nine Volt have made it clear that this title is designed to overcome the limitations that most melodic REX libraries suffer, where poorly sliced material is evident. In this case, they’ve done a fantastic job. The loops, while not all melodic, are constructed from some shockingly pleasant synths. There’s no question of the quality and the loops can be used in most genres. Rating: 9/10” Computer Music Magazine
“…In short, Nine Volt Audio have scored another absolute bullseye, and at a price that makes it a complete no-brainer purchase for practically anyone making their own music or mixing/producing for others. Bravo! Rating: 5/5.” A Sound on Sound 2011 Award Nominee. Sound on Sound Magazine
Shimmer & Shake (worth $69.99)
If you use shaken hand percussion samples or loops (and we all do) then you’ve got two problems – one of which you know, the other you might not:
- There is a small and over used group of sounds you rely on every time you need a shaker.
- You go to the same selection of samples and loops because all your other shaker sounds are inconsistently edited, ill-timed, have little-to-no tempo flexibility, are missing articulations, don’t come close to sounding real when programmed, or some combination of these.
That is why we created Shimmer & Shake: a collection of 2350 loops in the REX and Stylus RMX formats.
Instruments include the cabasa, vintage tambourine, modern tambourine, brass tambourine, sistrum, maracas hi, maracas low, caxixi, shekere, egg shaker, beer can shaker, “Bali-Pong” shaker, rain stick (played as a shaker), finger drum shaker, goat toes, sand shaker, rock shaker, pill bottle shaker, Shakerine front, Shakerine side, sleigh bells, shell shaker, Spin Spark hi, Spin Spark low and Vari-Tone. All loop folders and patch names further identify the sound characteristic to help find the right sound quickly (“natural”, “plastic”, “jingle”, “metal”, “sand”, etc.).
- 25 instruments with 89 different rhythms (2225 loops in REX and Stylus RMX formats) covering 4/4, 3/4, 7/8 and 5/4 time signatures. Individual hits and rolls for each are offered for endings and breaks.
- Highly organized and rhythmically consistent from suite to suite making it extremely easy to audition different sounds while keeping the same rhythm.
- Ease-of-use, consistency, organization and professional grade sounds, rhythms and programming make Shimmer & Shake a resource that you will use time-and-time again.
Organ Explosion (worth $99.99)
Featuring the sounds of the Hammond B-3, Organ Explosion presents 20 tightly organized song suites covering funk, blues, jazz, rock and more. With rhythmic bursts, bubbling riffs and fat back grooves, the 700+ loop collection is a go-to source for raw, infectious and emotive playing.
The Organ Explosion library takes a new an inventive approach by placing left and right hand performances into separate loops. While the left hand lays down solid basslines and the right pumps rhythm and melodies, composers have the freedom to combine loops for complete performances and the flexibility to separate them, opening up additional creative and compositional options.
Sounding spontaneous, simple and sophisticated, Organ Explosion goes from Saturday night’s jam to Sunday morning’s gospel sermon with style, syncopation and soul.
- Organ Explosion features 706 loops in the REX & Stylus RMX formats
- The collection is organized into 20 song suites. Each suite has clearly labeled song parts (i.e. riffs, progressions, transitions, grooves, etc.), clearly labeled key/chord progressions in the file name and an “L” or “R” to indicate the hand that is playing the loop.
“…The recordings have a lovely warn quality and – possibly a first – the performances are split into left hand (bass) and right hand loops, so that you’re free to manipulate the upper and lower parts of each performance without any hassle. Stylistically, it’s very diverse, even though all of the sounds originate from the B3, fear not, there’s plenty to play with. Rating 9/10” Computer Music Magazine
“…Pop Rock Guitars marks a new level of excellence even amongst this roster’s already illustrious company… All in all, this is a shining example of a workhorse sample library. Rating 5/5.” Sound on Sound Award Nominee. Sound on Sound Magazine

However, they’re never overdone, which is important in a library such as this, and the playing, and playing variation within each suite, is ideal for creating a bed upon which to build a song idea. What’s more, there’s plenty of inspirational material to do exactly that. Rating: 5/5” Sound on Sound Magazine

“For many genres of music the drum beat is king – so much so that if you were to take away all of the other elements the track would still sound full. This has as much to do with beefy production as it does with detailed arrangement, drum fills and clever variations.

“The title is accurate – we’re talking textures – but you can also think of them as either part of the rhythm section, or icing on the rhythmic cake. When trying to decide what to review for Sounds, I try and find products that either fill a specific need admirably, or are just plain well-produced. Textural Rex is both, and can add a much-needed element to electronic productions.” EQ Magazine
“…I’d highly recommend this library to anyone working with electronic beats.
