now I know I won't be spending on them a single penny.

Me neither. And Drew was such a dick from those screenshots.

I never thought selling samples was such a shady business until I was on beatport and heard my cousins track being used as a preview for a sample pack that was being sold.

My cousin never consented to the use of his track in their advertising. The advertising was obviously false because none of the sounds from the sample pack they were selling were used in my cousins song because they ripped it off soundcloud.

I mean... eventually he filed a complaint and beatport took it off but whoever did it must have been a real scumbag.

That's really f*cked up, the sample companies that I trust are Black Octopus for thequality and Sample Magic for the quality and for being kind guys, when I send some e-mails asking some questions for them.

All this makes me want to make more tutorials so people don't have to deal with bullshit like this. The sample pack industry isn't doing much to change my opinion of them.

Yes I like Sample Magic so much, they're really nice and their pack sounds really good..

I'm still watching these guys with their "6-digits revenue in last 6 months", it all just looks sad and funny to me - their new pack is even more expensive (127$) and is all based on wavetables created from animal sounds(that's why the high price I guess?), which doesn't sound like animals at all (I'm not saying they sound bad), you can do same good sounds with any other good source as a wavetable.

Also it seems like they're buying youtubers (even SeamlessR) to "review" their pack - as you can imagine, everybody say same thing - best pack, worth it. However, this little insight into dark and shady waters of sample industry is spreading, let's hope more people will find out and sink this strange shady company (and the others).

Cymatics.fm have always been shady. They got where they are by adding random people on fb, spamming, dumb download gates that follow random accounts, and shit.

"Cymatics.fm have always been shady": ;D
if you like serum, take one hour and half and watch the free Virtual Riot tutorial, you will learn more !
(remember that, you have 2 kind of people who make music: consumers (pack,preset...) and producers).
i don't have any problem with that ,eg, i don't know how to make good bread, i go to buy it, that's all, my problem with Cymatics is the quality of their presets: really bad, un interesting, i pass.
In some years, they will stop making music and start to work marketing or selling cars, the life:)

This topic may not be active anymore but yeah I completely dislike the Drew fucking whatever producer he is lol . He's a complete cunt and he calls people out for having less soundcloud followers or whatever  . Anyway I think they're full of shit and I wouldn't spend s single penny on their shit .people are just so naive that they think that if they buy the pack they gonna be the next EDCuntyM star.

I still feel like Steven can be an ok guy, but Drew is class A douchebag. Funny thing is I got banned in their Cymatics group without even being rude or something... one day just banned :D good thing is, that some people realize how impossible this company is and they even created parody fb page for them https://www.facebook.com/buymaticsFM/?fref=ts I'm f**king dead  ;D

I was searching the internet for reviews on Cymatics and found this topic. (even made an account to reply xD) I got introduced to Cymatics a couple months ago, a friend of mine bought a serum pack and he enjoyed it, but I wasn't impressed at all. Their price is way to high and the quality is good, but not that good. Especially the macro's are a bit poor/simple. However, their marketing is really good and I recentely downloaded some of their free samples, which are of high quality. I really thought they had improved their packs and I ws thinking on buying a pack, but now I see they've stolen some of the samples... it really doesn't surprise me... And I will not buy a single sound of them!

Besides their sounds being ripped, I think their tutorials are even worse.. I know my way around Serum, but watching their Serum tutorials is just funny. Every vid there's at least one moment that shows they really don't know what they're doing.

So for people that hesitate about buying some at Cymatics: Just don't do it.. ADSR is, in my opinion, way better in tutorials (best I've seen so far) and they've great packs. Just check out their best selling packs.

They now delete reviews with many dislikes and remove negative comments on their youtube videos now aswell.

not too happy with this thread being resurrected cuz it's total drama bait, but TBH I've had my opinion soured by Cymatics over the 3 months since this topic last came around.

i honestly really like the cymatics products in terms of their general sound quality (though like vengeance there's basically no room for processing so you'll be very obviously using their products), but their branding went south from the ableton project files product forwards. they hired those frequency quest guys and one of them posted a (since removed) video about "How to create your own original song with Cymatics Ableton Project Files" describing how you could just tweak a few parameters and change a few sounds and release the project as your own song, thus bypassing all the actual work involved in production.

kinda gross imo, and then they followed it up with a lot of branding for the project files about "steal your favorite producer's secrets and become a great producer QUICK AND EASY" (and lo and behold most if not all of the projects are just recreations of famous tracks in those genres), then acted like your typical meatheaded DoucheBros™ when the producers in question got upset about it and only stopped when someone even bigger called cymatics out for their attitude.

welcome to EDM in 2016, i guess.
