Metal and Motion also includes a bundle of dual machete samples. These were recorded by using 2 separate machetes to tap, slide, slice and bend in order to get accurate ‘sword fighting’ type of sounds. You will also find other metals, such as aluminum braces and rods included in the package as well.
Metal and Motion now comes shipped with some appropriately ‘Metal’ guitar sounds, ready to use. You will find ‘Guiatar Hits’, ‘Guitar FX’, and ‘Guitar Phrases’ included with the download as well.
Metal and Motion comes complete with SFZ and SF2 format mappings of it’s sounds. This allows users to import the sounds quickly into other synthesizers and samplers such as Kontakt and Alchemy with minimal difficulty.
To create these sounds, reason used a few different microphones to capture the details. Here is what he had to say about the process he used:
The main microphone used was an AKG C414 B-XLS II mic, as it is just a beautiful microphone for catching a wider array of different sources and source frequencies. The second mic used is a Rode NT55 micorphone, which I’ve used to catch to top section of the signal. For all cymbals and hihat scrapes, a blend of the two recordings has been created for a stereo signal. Most other recordings have been rendered out as mono source waves, and I chose the better of the 2 recordings as not to provide a lot of redundant material.
