The VSTiconsists of 87 sounds programmed into the Maize VSTi Sample Player which is included in the product.

“Playing bombs and gun shots on a keyboard and then, recording them directly into your sequencer really opens up some exciting possibilities,” says PowerFX CEO Bil Bryant. “Including sound effects in a VSTi is something we have been looking into for some time now, and the Maize VSTi Sample Player makes this a very powerful, fun and easy-to-use package indeed.”

Rick James, eat your heart out.

The War Machine’s features include disk streaming, 16 channels, 4 stereo puts, reverb and EQ. All of the 87 sound effects are also included separately as .wav sound files for added user flexibility. It has both standalone/VSTi modes.

The War Machine is available as a download for $99 USD.

  1. Am I the only one who thinks utiliziing a sample player for a library of 87 sound effects is a waste of space/CPU cycles? Most sequencers have a relatively basic sample player built-in, and for the majority of purposes this package would be used for running such samples through that would suffice!

    wow that's politically incorrect! Ha!

    Tesuji – I'm with you on this one – I'm remembering the barking dogs that did Christmas songs……..what are you going to do, play Jingle Bells with bomb sounds?

    I'm sure somebody's got a creative use for this, though.
