REVOLUTION a Reverse Instrument by Sample Fuel
REVOLUTION is Sample Fuel first Reversing Instrument Library that utilizes 2 different synthesis engines making it one of the most unique and capable reversing sample library instruments available anywhere.
“The approach when creating this instrument was not to be just a one-shot reverse library but to deliver a product that would be the most usable and unique reverse library on the market for the modern-day media composer.” said Danny Lux, Owner at SAMPLE FUEL and continues “Our goal was not just to reverse the sample content and call it done, but to create an engine capable of creating reversing textures that you can loop, mangle, layer on top of one another or add to a granular texture. The patches are interesting and unique enough to give your compositions new color and texture.” SAMPLE FUEL did send a review copy with no strings attached.

EVOLUTION is Reversing Instrument Library that utilizes 2 different synthesis engines making it one of the most unique and capable reversing sample library instruments available anywhere.
The approach of the producing company was to deliver a product that would be the most usable and unique reverse library on the market for the modern-day media composer.
The developed engine can reverse the sample in the process produces reversing textures and sounds. Those new vibes can be easily looped and shaped.
EVOLUTION is an individual library, there are alternatives that explore similar areas but this one produces a vibe and tone that I did not hear before. The collection makes pretty much any reverse sound you need.
Of the presets, some of my favorites are actually the simple reverse synth and E-piano instruments. It includes a treasure chest, with sounds ranging from lush to aggressive vibes.
