Teaming up with our friends at Samplephonics, we developed the first Kontakt instrument to allow users to easily add, move around and effect loop slices directly inside the program. With just a few clicks, you can subtly change a beat, or totally glitch it out beyond recognition.
From the ambient acoustic sounds of Portishead and Massive Attack, to full in your face breaks from the likes of The Prodigy and Roni Size, this sample library contains a huge range of drum sounds that will bring excitement and attitude to any genre of music.
Time to cook up some more delicious beats… the cookbook has a sequel! Including more ingredients which are full of saturated fat, MSG, a heap of sugar and certainly not suitable for a low cholesterol diet.
These new recipes are perfect for these dishes: Hip Hop, Dub Step, Drum & Bass, Breaks, Grime, Dance Hall, Electro… Although chefs making other dishes like: IDM, House and Techno will appreciate the varied high quality ingredients.
Punchy Kicks, Solid Snares, Hi Hats, Toms, Percussion, Claps, Cymbals, Layering tools, FX, Vinyl Hits, Chord Hits, Bass Tools and Rex Loops… just over 1 GB of the freshest ingredients.
