How to use the sound source for each genre

You have to use different sound sources for each genre, such as POPS, ROCK, R & B, and EDM.


Basically, orthodox tones such as piano, drums, bass, guitar, and synths are used, so it is recommended to use the following.

  • EXS24 (Sampler): Piano, bass, guitar, etc.
  • Drum Kit Designer: Drums
  • ES E (Ensemble): Synth pad


Bass, drums, guitar, piano, organ, etc. are the main instruments, so I think you should choose the following.

  • EXS24 (Sampler): Guitar, bass, etc.
  • Drum Kit Designer: Drums
  • Vintage B3 Organ: Organ

R & B, Soul

Genres such as R & B and soul are mainly driven and analog instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano, so I think you should choose the following.

  • EXS24 (Sampler): Acoustic guitar, bass drum, etc.
  • Vintage Electric Piano: Electric piano, etc.
  • ES E (Ensemble): Synth pad

EDM (Electro Dance Music)

EDM has a wide definition, but in this genre it is good to listen to various sounds of synths in general, but it is best to choose one that contains standard tones rather than projectile tones.

  • EXS24 (Sampler): Synth, bass, drums, etc.
  • ES 2: Synthesizer 2
