All loops have been recorded at BPMs of 120, 140 and 160BPM with the melodic content in keys of C and F.

The collection features a wide range of sonic content sourced from classic analogue synths, virtual analog, toy synths and circuit bent tone generator all plumbed into a huge range of the in the box effects. Also included are atmospheric and FX recordings captured from around the globe to slice and dice all the grit, crackle, dust and dirt you need to add organic textures to your productions.

New to this pack is CAPSUN’s ‘Sliced RnB’ loops and slices concept, which involved recording classic sounding Rnb Hooks in 8 bar song sections, then re-sampling, chopping & manipulating these edits to provide super cool original licks that sound like they came from vinyl but are all completely royalty free and ready to drop.

Waldorf has announced the release of Streichfett, a colourful string synthesizer desktop module.

Waldorf Streichfett

Streichfett combines the best of the previously extinct species of String Synthesizers of the 70s and early 80s. Its dual sound engine features a fully polyphonic strings section and an eight voice solo section, which is essential for recreating how adult movies sounded thirty years ago.

The Ensemble Effect handles lubrication of the String Section, while the Effects section adds adjustable Phaser and Reverb. Additionally, the Animate Effect can be used to modulate the strings registration, allowing spectacular sound morphs.

Streichfett is available for purchase for SRP 279 EUR (including tax).

Bass Boutique launches Bass Sessions by Smookie Illson

Bass Boutique has released Bass Sessions, an essential collection of sample-ready studio artillery by Smookie Illson.

Bass Boutique Smookie Illson Bass Sessions

In less than two years since its inception, the US-based DJ/production outfit has cranked out a formidable amount of well-received music across the blogosphere, signed music to Play Me Records and started their own digital imprint, Ill At Will Music. Their first release on Ill At Will, ‘Feels Good (Alright)’ saw a premiere on Diplo’s AAA episode of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Diplo & Friends’. Their back catalog, which includes the standout ‘Club Action’ bootleg, still enjoys regular support from scene giants like Skrillex, RL Grime and Brillz.

‘Bass Sessions’ is a veritable treasure trove of painstakingly curated sounds, ranging from 808 one shot hits, basslines, FX loops, and vocal hits to full drum loops and complete musical synth riffs. It covers a variety of tempos popular in contemporary bass music: 128 bpm, 140 bpm, 150 bpm and the currently fashionable 100 bpm range. Of note is the expansive ‘Music Riff’ section which includes complete synth loop passages from the gritty to the ethereal, ready for use in house, garage, breakbeat and trap productions. Also included are a grip of synth basslines – some bouncy, some wobbly, some razor sharp – plus a full directory of FX loops filled with sweeps, impact and riser FX.

The pack is available from Loopmasters for £29.95 GBP, with individual parts sold separately starting at £8.95 GBP.
