Push Button Bang has launched Hip Hop Horns, a collection of big brass and sexy saxophone to light up your modern hip hop, R&B and urban chart music production.
Whether you want staccato stabs, simple catchy chorus hooks, big power notes, winding improvised brass solos or all of the above, Hip Hop horns is guaranteed to deliver.
The content draws on contemporary hip hop and R&B for its inspiration, taking its cue from the brass hooks featured in productions from Jason Derulo, Kanye West, Jay- Z and Outkast.
All the sax loops are expertly recorded at 96bpm, in complimentary keys and played with real passion and skill. As well as the saxophone content, also included is a huge range of hip hop and abstract break stems: drums, melodies, FX parts and long guitar accompaniment backing parts, perfect for creating live sounding multi instrument jams in seconds.
In detail, the pack contains 100 saxophone loops, presented in both their original 100 tenor versions and also 100 “baritone” versions. Meaning the loops have also been pitched down an octave with an incredibly smooth algorithm, for an additional deeper version of each loop.
The pack is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.
