The Very Loud Indeed Co. release SHIFT

Library dedicated to tempo-synced musical transitions

The Very Loud Indeed Co. SHIFT Hybrid Scoring Transitions sample library composer sound designer

Founded by sound designer Richie Nieto, The Very Loud Indeed Co. offer a range of sample libraries and synthesizer soundsets, primarily for Native Instruments’ Kontakt and Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere platforms. Their latest release, SHIFT: Hybrid Scoring Transitions, sits in the former category, offering composers and sound designers a collection of tempo-synced transitions designed to seamlessly blend between different cues or sections of music.

The library contains 320 transition sounds, which have been created using a combination of instrument recordings and synthesis. All of the sounds can be played in any key, and have been designed so that they can be layered together if necessary. When played, each transition is automatically synced to the tempo of the host DAW, and covers a pitch range of one and a half octaves. All of the samples provided in the library are also available as WAV files, allowing them to be loaded directly into a DAW or another sampler if required.

The library features a simple and intuitive GUI that presents all of its parameters on a single page. Users are able to fine-tune the transition’s shape using Attack Curve and Decay controls, whilst low- and high-pass filters and a single-band EQ offer some tonal adjustment. Some internal effects processing is also on offer thanks to the inclusion of built-in reverb and distortion sections.


SHIFT: Hybrid Scoring Transitions runs in the full version of Native Instruments’ Kontakt 6.7.1 or later, which is supported on PCs running Windows 10 or 11, and Macs running macOS 10.14 and above. VST, VST3, AU and AAX plug-in versions are available, and there is also a standalone version. The library occupies 2GB of disk space.
