  1. … Wow! I’m seriously sold! They actually dropped a friggin’ bus for us to use as an instrument!

    This thing sounds amazing!

  2. This is actually really cool. The thing about being able to place individual drums anywhere on the stereofield is interesting as hell.

  3. I like the concept but the price is just way too high for me right now. I wish I could just get a sample pack of clanging metal and falling cars. Is there anything like that?

    1. yeah, like you could totally save money if you just buy a used car and blow it up, then rent a crane, buy a bus, lift the bus up 30 feet and drop it. Also, you’d have to buy a fairly good field recorder and have some nice mics on hand, etc. etc. I don’t think you’d be saving money.

      But you’re right about learning a lot. like how much your neighbors appreciate exploding cars outside their homes.
