Sample Magic has announced the release of Live Hi-Hats Vol 2, a collection of shuffling live hi-hat loops for any genre.
Superlative second volume of groove-laden 100% live hi-hat lines expertly played recorded to add the irrepressible energy of live drumming to programmed beats – whatever your genre.
Regardless of genre, dance music is all about the groove. But adding that elusive groove isn’t always easy. Mimicking the subtleties of a real drummer in programmed beats can be a painstaking process. But with much of the groove being locked into the hi-hat patterns, dropping in a live hi-hat loop can transform a rigid beat in to a dynamic groove.
And here we serve up 101 of these precision-cut and tempo-labeled loops from one of the world’s top session drummers. Designed for total pan-genre appeal, these killer lines will appeal to producers across the dance music spectrum, whether it’s house or disco, chillout or drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, hip-hop or beyond – with loops ranging from 100 through to 174bpm.
The sample pack costs £14.90 GBP.
