Review Highlights (for previous versions, reviews of this version to follow...)
"Raunchy, raw, and rude: Three "R" words that describe the audio material you'll get on the Terminalhead CDs. That's meant as a compliment...you'll find lots to get excited about and inspired by: crunchy drum and guitar loops, oddball sound effects, wicked synth lines, spacy analog synth events, and more...And to assure the audio gets dirty enough, the producers downsampled or sample-converted much of the material so that it's only 8- or even 4-bit. Grunge City!...I really appreciate the variety of drum loops, which range from fairly straight-ahead to absolutely monstrous -- with a decided multitude of the latter...The processing is so thick it's tasteful, and the hooks are infectious. Some of the best feature digitally sliced-and-diced vocals..."AMG has been one of the world's most consistent producers of great loop CDs over the past few years," Greg concluded, "and Terminalhead does not disappoint." - Keyboard (USA), Dec 97.
All highly processed and grunged up big time including some 4-bit processing. All specially recorded, distorted, filtered and phat. Including:
Pete's Drum Loops & Chops - Assorted drum loops. Distorted, filtered and phat. Watch them bass bins flap.
Pete's Lo-Fi Drum Loops and Chops - Drums and drum effects utilising 8 and 4 bit lo-fi cruch technology. Sizeable and hard.
Funky Crunch Gate Corner - Created using many sound sources. Sample, fly in and enjoy - they're funky. Try triggering them in different parts of the bar. Also includes many 4 and 8 bit loops. Warning - some of the sounds are REALLY hard.
Synth Riffs/Sounds - Assortment of usable synth lines, sounds and sequences. Once again, created using a cross section of old analogue boxes, some crunchy filters and 4/8 bit processing. Sample the bits you like, shut your eyes and fly 'em in.
Greg's Funky Hard Chops - Hard as nails, but smooth as silk. You're certain to find a chop or rhythmic phrase to suit your track.
Dub FX - Loads of fresh sexy, NEW dub effects to spice up your track. Treat with love, care and respect.
Pascal Benadjaoud Percussion - This time delivering new grooves for terminalhead, using bongos, congas, darbuka, tambourines, triangles, shakers and vocals. Pascal gets phased, phreaked and dubbed out.
Shortwave Strangeness - Best reapings from many a cold, dark night in front of the trusty old tranny.
Misc. Unusualness - An odd assortment of those hard to categorise sounds.
Greg's Trippy Oddness - An unusual collection of very usuable processed guitar.
Synth Effects - Many very weird, wonderful and wide synthetic effects.
Analogue Pads and Sweeps - A collection of filter sweeps and beautiful organic moments.
