Hooky, catchy, short phrases to pepper your tracks – stretch 'em, harmonise 'em, distort 'em, smear 'em in delay, or just serve them up raw.
The loops fall into three instrument categories: guitar, keys and synth. There are two loops per instrument per tempo (95, 110, 120, 128, 140 & 170bpm), usually in complementary keys (C/G, E/B, A/D, etc.). Each loop was played in by hand with no copy/paste, so there's some variety here, from major key chirpiness to minor key angst, via plenty of funky pentatonic and flat 2nd Eastern flavours.
What you need to know
This sample collection offers a variety of loops and hits in three folders labelled by instrumentation, which are further divided into tempo-labelled folders.
All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
