CFA-Sound DSP-Drums 01 ACE Review
Probably one of the most interesting synthesizer plugins of the last year is u-he ACE. Following a somewhat modular concept, it’s capable of some pretty fancy things – a fact CFA-Sound exploited to its best with the “DSP-Drums 01 – ACE” sample pack.
As a modern electronic dance music producer, you might wonder what a synth can offer a huge sample collection can’t – well, let’s dig a bit deeper here. You won’t find a banging trance kick, driving hihat loops or other very standard samples and loops in here – that’s just not the strength of the ACE synthesizer.
This sample pack supports you with extremely subby loops that made our studio monitors and headphones go crazy – and the dancefloor ain’t any different for sure. The low freqency region is literally shaking every membrane. Furthermore the product delivers crisp and experimental drumshots from claps to kicks to various percussion elements, which makes “DSP-Drums ACE” probably one of the best choices for a very unique electro production including never-heard sounds: almost every sample is inspiring as such, besides the sounddesign being top notch: precise cuts, very different sounds (no “let’s deliver 1 GB of samples, only the data amount counts”), and also includes a Logic EXS24 and Native Instruments Kontakt version for creative loop experiments.
The content contains 580 samples splitted into 2 processing types – pure(clear output) and processed(with an additional dynamic overwork processing on the samples). In detail:
- 20 claps
- 40 click
- 60 hihats
- 110 kicks
- 40 loops
- 70 misc sounds
- 180 percussions
- 20 snares
- 40 toms
It’s very simple: for all lovers of u-he ACE and a more experimental kind of electronic music, this sample pack is a must-try or even must-have. You will probably be amazed what this plugin is capable of. Be sure to check the demo mp3 and also the free demo-pack since this is everything else but a standard sample pack for dance producers.

Summary: It’s very simple: for all lovers of u-he ACE and a more experimental kind of electronic music, this sample pack is a must-try or even must-have. You will probably be amazed what this plugin is capable of.
