Review: Sample Magic Chillwave Guitars

Sample Magic Chillwave Guitars

Sample Magic’s latest SM Studio series sample library is Chillwave Guitars, a collection of inspiring guitar loops.

The SM Studio series is all about live instruments, and having the session musician right at your fingertips by offering quality stems recorded and processed with high-end gear.

Chillwave Guitars offers a collection of 140+ guitar riffs, phrases and textures by experienced musician, teacher and producer Simon Pratt.

From summery acoustic patterns and lilting beachside progressions to effected swells, tapetoned reverses and degraded electric guitar textures, Chillwave Guitars answers that request, serving up a wealth of 6-stringed inspiration that can slot effortlessly into the mix or form the cornerstone of new productions.

The pack features 146 processed loops of acoustic and electric guitar loops, and raw (unprocessed) versions of the recordings for 138 of them. All samples are key labeled and tempo synced to 90 and 100 bpm. REX and Apple Loops formats are also available if you want to work in different tempos or keys. The file names indicate acoustic (24) or electric (122) guitar loops.

For this collection Simon used various guitars, including a Fender Thin-Line Telecaster and a 1970′s Ovation acoustic guitar. Some classic amps and effects pedals were used, and the acoustic recordings were tracked with vintage Neumann U77 microphones.

Following in the footsteps of the sun-washed sounds of the Chillwave sample library, this guitar loops pack has a seriously laid back vibe, with that typical vintage 80′s sound and heavy use of effects processing found in chillwave music.

So what do I think?

Product: Chillwave Guitars by Sample Magic
Format: 24bit samples (Wav/REX/Apple Loops)
Price: £14.90 GBP
Like: Spot on sound, lovely themes, good variety, includes raw material
Don’t like: –
Verdict: 9/10

With Chillwave Guitars, Simon Pratt delivers an outstanding collection of guitar loops.

The effects processing is spot on and there’s a wide range of sounds, making these loops perfect for use in chillwave productions. While the sounds are beautifully designed, having the unprocessed recordings is very useful too, as you can use your own effects processing to get the sound needed for your projects.

Simon is creative and consistent in his playing, and it really feels like having a top notch session player in your studio.
