This sample pack from Big Fish Audio offers the user an array of sounds designed to add colour and depth to a movie soundtrack.

There's loads of material here for the soundtrack and film score composer - 2GB to be precise. Supplied as Apple Loop/AIFF files, the samples come categorised as Acoustic Oddities, Mixed Loops, One-shot Effects, Pads and Atmospheres, Percussion Loops and Tonal Loops.

The sound quality is up to Big Fish Audio's usual high standard, and you get a good variety of useable content. Of particular note are the bowed harps in the Acoustic Oddities section - these perfectly illustrate the alternative, ethereal tones that are typical of this collection.
