Sample Anatomy has announced the release of Hybrid Bassline Tech Vol 1, a collection of 100 bassline loops and MIDI files.
Bass lines are arguably one of the hardest elements of a track to produce. Its the seat of the song. Its what people are going to groove to. We’ve concocted 100 of the freshest, biggest and baddest tech baselines to get your House, Minimal, Techno or any other genre with a 4 on the 4 groove, a serious head start.
Bassline Tech is full of diversity when it comes to style. You’ll find a plethora of earth shaking subs, distorted mids, synth heavy top end, minimal stylized, modulated expressions, enveloped, full on, resonance heavy, and funky baselines in this pack. We’ve left nothing to be desired with this one. For the sake of artistic integrity, most loops were left dry of effects (No Delays or Reverbs). All loops were however treated with EQ and COMPRESSION to ensure full compatibility with your project. Just drag drop and go!
Love the groove but not 100% happy with the sound we’ve created? No problem. Fire up one of the adjoining midi files and plug in your own sound. For every bassline we created we’ve supplied you with the MIDI file that created the bassline. This will ensure you get exactly what you want from your groove. Having the MIDI file is also a great way to create variation in your groove if you choose to.
We’ve supplied you with 4 folders. Each folder contains 50 loops cut at 123 and the other 50 cut at 125 for both the MIDI and the AUDIO. Standard faire for tech productions. All Audio and Midi files have been key marked for your convenience.

MIDI HACK is a 24h hackathon sponsored by Ableton, Native Instruments & Spotify celebrating the protocols (such as MIDI, OSC & CV) and technologies that are the backbone of analog and digital music creation.
The MIDI HACK weekend will offer lectures and performances from artists and creators. The focus of the event will be on letting our participants create new and ground breaking ideas.
The goal of MIDI HACK is to bring together industry leaders, interesting start-ups, software developers, hardware fanatics and musicians who push the envelope of music creation, and to spawn great and creative ideas for the future. Ever wanted to rip apart MIDI controllers to create a new one? Maybe write a new VST or AU? Or how about finding new ways to perform? Then this is the hack for you.
The name MIDI HACK derives from the midi protocol that has defined music creation for more than 30 years. Together with OSC (Open Sound Control – an open source version of the same idea) and CV (Control Voltage – used to control analogue synthesizers) they are the three pillars of music creation today whenever there’s a synthesizer or computer involved.
A hack is a abbreviation of hackathon, a defined space that during a limited tine engages people in overcome a defined target or investigate a certain subject. Midi hack is aimed for the people who love music creation and sees a potential for involvement within the area.
MIDI HACK will take place May 17th-18th, 2014, at Spotify HQ, Stockholm – Sweden. The application form opens Tuesday March 18th, and closes March 30th, 2014.
