Prime Loops R&B Iconz

Prime Loops has launched R&B Iconz, a 570MB+ collection of emotive synth melodies, sub basslines, epic strings, soft beats & more.

From chart dominators such as Usher, Akon, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Trey Songz and Ne-Yo to fresh new playas on the scene such as 2 Chainz, Iggy Azalea, August Alsina and Sevyn Streeter, the mass appeal of R&B is merciless! Muscle your way onto the scene with a strong yet sensitive collection of contemporary R&B Song Kits featuring airy synths that switch between soulful and dramatic in perfect synchronicity with seductive percussion and soft beats that will command you to move your body as things get steamy beneath those humid basslines.

Flaunting over 570MB of sultry tones, velvety hooks and emotive melodies, R&B Iconz rolls deep with 137 loops arranged over 7 R&B Song Kits and an additional 40 one-shots! Each sample is supplied in a perfect 24-bit sample rate that refuses to corrupt, no matter how much you manipulate these exclusive new sounds. Making their grand entrance to your DAW via direct download, these contemporary samples will sync with your mix automatically – all you need to do is select your desired sample from the download folder, click and drag it towards whichever major piece of software you work with, and drop that file right into the mix! If you wanna take that tempo to another level, simply click the end of the sample and squeeze it back to raise the BPM or stretch it out for a slower jam. From the sci-fi tinged ‘LouLou’ to cool and contemplative ‘Healer’ and the deep despair of ‘SuperThick’, each of these jams has been professionally mastered to express the most complex of emotions in true R&B fashion!

The sample pack is on sale for £16.95 GBP (regular £19.95 GBP).
