Takeover 2.0 for Vengeance Avenger is an expanded version of my fist Avenger library released in February 2017, expanded in 2019 making use of several features which weren't present in the first version of Avenger (granular synthesis, cross-FM, tuned comb-filter).

This sound library provides a broad palette of timbres suitable for a wide variety of musical styles:

*Monumental, epic, dramatic soundscapes with a cinematic flavor.
*Heartwarming, fragile, lush, elevating pads.
*Ethereal, fascinating and otherworldly textures.
*Dark and massive drones.
*Expressive lead synths and juicy bass sounds.
*Beautiful string instruments (guitars, plucked piano, cello derivatives).
*Bells and pluck sounds.
*Synthetic vocal textures.
*Epic brass swells (horns, trombones, sousaphone).
*Drum/percussion sounds for the drum sampler, dry and processed.
*Playful, edgy and minimal sequences.
*Evolving, rhythmical, often tempo-synced animations of timbre, amplitude and filters.

Specs:
  • * 132 patches (including 8 variations).
    * 92 wavetables, also derived from the re-synthesis function in Avenger.
    *83 sample maps (multi-samples) and one-shots (44.1 Khz - 24 Bit), 2+ GB (before lossless compression in Avenger).
    * 35 granular sources.
    * 13 single cycle waveforms (shapes).
    * 2 drumkits.
    * Library size in total: 953.3 MB (936 MB download).
    *All patches have the modulation wheel and the three Macros assigned, most also use Macro switches, many also use aftertouch.
    *Comes in the native avenger format, easy import/installation.
    *Delivery: download.
    *Price: € 55 EUR
    *Upgrade from version 1: € 8 EUR
Patch categories (12 sub-folders):
  • *Arp - Sequencer (17 including 6 variations)
    *Bass (8 including 1 variation)
    *Bells - Plucks (13)
    *Brass (5)
    *Drones (12)
    *Drums - Percussion (8)
    *Leads (5)
    *Pads (15)
    *Soundscapes (24)
    *String (7 including 1 variation)
    *Synth (11)
    *Vocal Synth (7)

All demos below were produced entirely with Avenger using only patches from Takeover, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of Avenger were used in a track.

Three fresh Avenger patches from the Takeover in a slightly epic electronic nostalgic whatever demo track.
Bubbly bass sequencer meets animated pad meets FM bells, some Macro/modwheel automation, a limiter on the master out. I'll probably do another version of this track as soon as I've sampled some percussion and drum sounds for this library...

Cheers- only asked as I am VAT registered so we don't normally have to pay tax when buying from EU (for now- bloody Brexit) but its a small amount and not really important. It is very impressive work, I will be ordering.

Cheers, SLIC - fortunately there is still time until the Brexit, and I agree, it's bloody indeed.
