Loopmasters has announced New York Rap Acapellas Part 2, a collection of rap acapellas by Monster Sounds, featuring some of the best MC’s in NYC.
Many times in the studio you hit a wall when making a tune. The need for an MC to take the track from being great to being a remembered banger is so simple but tricky if you don’t know any decent mic controllers.
Monster Sounds label bosses Aquasky / BlackNoise have been fortunate over the years to have befriended and associated with many great vocalists and here they continue in the successful Rap Acapella series bringing the authentic performances to your studio.
Taking up where NY rap left off Their ‘go to’ man for this pack again was friend Dan Walker aka the awesome NineLives The Cat. Residing in Brooklyn, Dan has appeared on many great house and breakbeat tunes over the years with appearances on projects by Kelevra, Rennie Pilgrem, Ninja Sonik and Costello amongst a host of others. Dan is also part of the helter skelter art punk outfit “The Deathset” who have just recently signed to Steve Aokis “Dimmak” and who have been lucky enough to have had both Diplo and Spankrock adding flavours to their sounds on past records. NineLives has a plethora of past and upcoming original records many of which have been put out most recently by Boogie Boutique and Roca Records and has played a variety of underground NY parties pushed by the likes of Knife Fight and Radical Outing. NineLives The Cats tongue in cheek style is reminiscent of early Beastie Boys/RUN DMC styles of the 80′s.

Loopmasters has introduced Heavy Weight Analogue Subs, a sample pack by Monster Sounds.
To properly fill out the bottom end of your mix and get the real low sub bass, it’s a well proven method by producers to layer the main bass sound with a separate sub. This gives the full range right into the low end, and allows you to effect the main bass sound but still have a clean, full sub to get the extension right into the low, low areas!
Included in the pack are multi samples and hits from The Roland SH101, the Yamaha CS5, The Korg MS20, The Novation BassSation, Roland 808 Roland Juno 106 and the Clavia Nord.
In Detail expect to find 200Mb of 24 Bit Quality samples, 296 single shot samples formed into 43 powerful bass Multi Sampled Instruments, and 40 Big Sub Hits with included Ready to Play Soft Sampler Patches for Kontakt, Halion, Exs24, Nnxt and Sfz formats.
The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £24.95 GBP.

Loopmasters has introduced Future Jungle & Drumstep, a new Monster Sounds sample pack by Aquasky.
Future Jungle is the name being talked about a lot at the moment, a genre that has its roots heavily planted within the legendary rave culture of the UK. Giving a definite nod to the classic early to mid 90s period that defined drum and bass and rave this pack is all about bringing it bang up to date with a modern twist of current production techniques.
Following up from their recent album “Raise the Devil”, a step back into the darker, heavier world of breakbeat, dubstep, drumstep, ragga and bass, Monster Sounds label owners Aquasky are please to drop this genre swerving sample pack.
Weighing in at 1.7GB, the pack includes 1504 24Bit samples, with 720 loops between 140 – 177 Bpm, and 784 One Shot samples.
