Samplecraze releases Origin of Species sample pack

Samplecraze Origin of Species

Samplecraze has released Origin of Species, a new collection of samples.

This pack is the first in a fresh new collection of samples from Samplecraze incorporating some interesting new dynamic techniques that entail M/S, polarity inversions and phase offsets at varying degrees. This affords even wider sounds than the norm with specific frequency removals to allow for even more in depth layering.

With this new approach in mind I am more than happy to offer this monster pack that contains a select choice of drum and bass samples that span across 400 samples in total.
Broken down into 336 super wide and deep drum samples: 96 low end punished kicks that are the thickest and deepest Samplecraze has even released, 96 super layered, biting and wide snares that savage through the mix, 48 of the sweetest and wettest layered claps to date and 48 hi hats that have immense presence and sparkle. This completes the drum sample section.

Now the percussion section: consisting of 48 complex and dynamic efx textures that range from drops to drones, low end rumbles and ‘evolutions’. But a low end sample pack is never complete unless it has a dedicated bass loop section. 70 low end barrier breaking bass loops, ranging from 80 BPM to 95 BPM, from upright funk to downright filthy subs and spread over 40 specific and varied riffs these loops contain tempo and key information and are Acidized for ease of use.

Origin of Species is available to purchase for £19.99 GBP.
