Prime Loops has released Studio Guitars, a 689 MB collection of ballad hooks, steady riffs and upbeat jams.
The guitar is an instrument capable of truly heavenly tones but capturing this sound in a recording is never as straight-forward as you’d think. Here at Prime Loops we’ve been changing strings, tweaking amps and adjusting mics to deliver only the finest tone imaginable to your DAW! We used a 1985 Gibson Les Paul electric and a Martin DC-16RGTE acoustic with Fishman, Marshall and Orange amps, recorded through an AKG C214 microphone, so STUDIO GUITARS guarantees to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end!
Open the case and you will find over 689MB of rich guitar tones ranging from 70 to 130BPM. These sensational loops are neatly arranged into 3 categories comprising of 50+ Ballad Hooks, 50+ Steady Riffs and 50+ Upbeat Jams, all applicable to a vast range of genres! From the clean, delay-drenched chime of Ballad Hook ‘Serene’ to the upbeat overdrive of Steady Riff ‘Perpetual’ and the crunchy swagger of Upbeat Jam ‘Loose’, STUDIO GUITARS redefines quality guitar samples and delivers them in stunning 24-bit high definition.
The sample library costs £17.95 GBP.

Samplephonics has launched the 808 // 909 Bundle, a discounted bundle including the 808 and 909 drum machine sample libraries.
Probably the most iconic drum machines ever built, the TR808 and 909 Rhythm Composer, are now available to download in high resolution digital format, together at last!
After years of competing against each other, with the 808′s boomy kick and melodic tom toms and the 909′s crunchy hi hats and thumping kick, a truce has finally been made and they can both be yours to own in this snug little bundle.
With over 9000 24 Bit Wav samples, full presets libraries and two beautifully scripted interfaces, these fully fledged drum sequencers pay a real tribute to the original machines, and are in our opinion, the most accurate software recreations available to date.
Please note, you need a full copy of Kontakt 5 to run the sequencers, although you can also use the Kontakt 4, Ableton, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT sampler instruments.
The bundle costs £69 GBP (£29 GBP off individual prices).
