Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"Don't be fooled by the acronym: MOR is definitely NOT middle of the road. It's a screeching, howling, booming, clanging, clattering, bashing noise-fest that will fool your neighbours into thinking you have a tame death-metal band lurking in your studio. It's hard to imagine any rock library getting much more powerful than this, and bearing in mind the enduring popularity of the genre, I have a feeling it will be one of Quantum Leap's biggest sellers." - SOUND ON SOUND

"Start loading programs and you're guaranteed to find something cool. If anyone thinks for a minute that there's no reason for another sample library with drums, guitars, and bass, Ministry of Rock proves them wrong. This library is a perfect example of why sampling is unlikely to be replaced completely by synthesizers, no matter how close their emulations get: you can feel the energy in every note." - VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT MAGAZINE
