ELECTRIC VICE was created in association with Loopmasters and was created to bring out club-pumping sounds to your MASCHINE. It was meant to be the definitive sound pack for creating aggressive electro house music styles. Many of the sounds are triggered in a choke-group workflow design with an eye to provide the ability to create exciting production and performance styles of many of this genres today's top artists.
With ELECTRIC VICE, you get really solid sounding drum kits that have hard-hitting kicks, snares, and percussion that just cut through the sound. With the preset patterns, it makes it super easy to just be able to drop them into a mix and run with it. When you tie it to the other MASCHINE instruments that come with it, everything just blends together nicely.
What ELECTRIC VICE really provides is a set of club-ready sounds that can be used right out of the box. What is really cool is that the way the sounds were sampled and produced, it almost sounds as you get that pulsating side-chaining sound – MASCHINE as a stand-alone is not capable of side-chaining, and that is another thing that makes this package really work.
Overall, ELECTRIC VICE is a lot of fun to play with, very easy to use, and really gives you a lot of flexibility when creating your music. Everything is all ready for club use. There are a number of sample sequences set up and they are really so well done so if you want to see how things can be put together and in high quality form than you can easily study these tracks. If you are looking for something to add to your MASCHINE set up I very highly recommend ELECTRIC VICE.
