About Massive Complextro Tools
“For complextro bass sounds- its hard to find much better than this. The bass sounds are hard as HELL ! Mostly already arpeggiated- which is amazing, these sounds are straight up complextro or dubstep. Either way- they sound perfect. The leads are ok, but the fx sounds and bass sounds are what you are buying this for. Great job by CFA !! Verdict – 10/10

About Thrillogy-1 – VirusTI

Tai Jason was born in London in 1979, but has spent his early childhood on Koh Samui in Thailand. At the age of 14 he moved to South Germany’s capital Munich, where he later started to study sound engineering. In 1998 he went on a mission to become the first Hip Hop Producer in Germany to produce dirtysouth crunk beats, even though he dosen’t really look like the typical dirty south rap producer. His first track to enter the sales charts accompanied by a high budget music video was “AggroBerlinZeit”, taken from the AGGRO Berlin “Ansage No. 5″ Album, which was mainly produced by Tai Jason and became a huge success. The Album reached gold status within 3 weeks and was Tai’s first successful milestone on his mission. Tai Jason was Germany’s most successful Hip Hop Producer in 2007 (most record sales), having not only the most releases, but also three Top 10 Albums – two of them already went gold, one of them is a heading for platinum status at the moment.
About Massive Complextro Tools
“This package is so much fun to work with right now. The style is so on-point of what is happening in the electronic music at the moment. It has a whole set of really nice growls with the bottom and top end to get that nasty Dubstepy sound of today. Loading these presets into your Massive is pretty easy and the Massive saves the actual preset in the syth which not all do, so you dont have to load the presets in every time you open a new syth. Thanx… Verdict – 10/10
