What do you call a collection of sounds so distinctive, so unique, and so other worldly that it can only be described celestial or extra-terrestrial? You call it Virgo.
Virgo is a library full of the most extraordinary drum samples and loops in our catalog. These sounds are unusual and unbelievable in the best way possible. Taken from the personal archives of Grammy-nominated producer, Jamie Lidell, these drum samples pave the path for personal expression and creativity.
We often refer to Jamie as the “mad scientist” of electronic sound. Virgo is an anthology of electronic sounds made through the operation of vintage, analogue gear. Unlike most software applications, Virgo’s grit and rarity comes from old equipment with an emphasis on signal chain, not software. Naturally, this means you could manipulate your current plugins until the sun goes down and never arrive at these sounds.
The single hits feature an Ensoniq Mirage, SP1200, Moog Voyager, Star Electronics Synare 3, Publison Infernal Machine, Lexicon Prime Time, UA 2100, Neve Master Buss Processor, Chandler Curve Bender and a Burl Bomber. The loops? Well, let’s just say the loops are hand selected from various personal “Lidellian” archived recordings, as well as some loops created by our That Sound team.
Virgo is for the bold-spirited. The musical thrill-seeker looking to take a new set of unconventional, hallucinogenic drum sounds and chase their creativity until it is apprehended. Download the deluxe version to day and get presets for Ableton, Logic’s EXS24, Reason, NI’s Battery 4, Maschine 1, Maschine 2, and *Kontakt 5.
