Having created some of the greatest orchestral libraries in existence, Orchestral Tools also shines when it comes to creative instruments. This new series, Fabrik, is as gritty and experimental as it is expansive and boundary-breaking.

Thoughts

As a long-time Orchestral Tools user, it’s great to see how far they have expanded their range away from traditional orchestral sampling. I still use the Arks to this very day although I find myself using their more creative libraries more often. While the focus is not for everyone, I find a place to use them in my work and the Fabrik series is no exception. While the fantastic Parisienne-themed Loire was so focused on that style and captured it perfectly, I find that Fabrik can have a number of different applications. The gritty, industrial, and rough sounds are cinematic, impactful and useful. While there is a lot of experimentation going on with these two libraries, the sounds contained within can be applied to many musical scenarios and are never too out there to be unusable. The sampling is of the high-quality Orchestral Tools standard and the memory footprint is low. Really, there is nothing not to love about these first two Fabrik entries and I cannot wait to see what they come up with next!

Contributor Pete Checkley reviews Fabrik: Transit and Radome by Orchestral Tools
Orchestral Tools are forever pushing the boundaries of instrumental sampling. Having created some of the greatest orchestral libraries in existence, they also shine when it comes to creative instruments. From some of my favourite creative soundpacks such as Amber and Loire to the more out there such as Umbra and Ore, Orchestral Tools never fail to deliver. Their new series, Fabrik, is as much gritty and experimental as it is expansive and boundary breaking.”
