9 Soundware releases Beatbox
9 Soundware has released Beatbox, a multi-format set of human beatbox loops.
While it is widely acknowledged as an “extended element of hip-hop”, beatboxing has been a long overlooked craft outside of the culture that is devoted to the art form. These fluid beats can be an old-school, yet refreshing, way to literally humanize quantized drum loops. The 127 loops were chosen from hours of hard-hitting, rapid-fire performances with enough spit to DRENCH a pop filter and drive it to the ground. From slow and steady to fast and furious, these blistering grooves are well suited for a variety of musical situations.
- 127 loops (1 to 4 bars in length) at tempos 80, 100, 120, and 140 BPM.
- All 127 files have been meticulously sliced and turned into REX2 and Apple Loops files.
- The 184 MB download contains all three formats (24-bit/44.1 kHz) and will work seamlessly with most popular applications including Apple Logic Pro/Express, Propellerheads Reason, Spectrasonics Stylus RMX, and Ableton Live.
Beatbox is available now for $29.99 USD.
