Most of you guys heard his name already: Jeff Schmidt – he is the guy behind all the Alien Imaging stuff. His libraries like Fuse Reloader or Warp are legendary and sold all over the place. As a FX creator on my own, who loves making Noizes and Sounds  Jeff is an unbelievable talent and I am so happy we got him on board to create custom FX for all the Benztown libraries. Jeff is also a very talented imaging director and an electric bass guitar player.

1. What is your favourite FX package until now and why (Alien Imaging, Killer Hertz, Noise, Megabytes, etc.)?

2. What is your favourite delivering media and audio quality?

3. What would be a realistic prize for a 200+ cut FX package?

5. What packages did you buy last year?

What do Vic Firth, James Dyson and Oli from benztown all have in common? They all build and create elements they need on their own.
4 years ago Oli had the feeling he never got the right Sound Design Work Parts and Imaging FX he was looking for on the CD or Online libraries he was purchasing. So he taught himself to create outstanding Imaging FX. He experimented a lot, bought some synth gear, trieda drum sampler, loaded them with shiploads of stuff and f**** around with it. By doing this everyday day he created a huge archive for benztown, which fits his own needs better than any product around.
