Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the release of a new sound pack that allows you to add serious guitar goodness to your production with ease, no guitar playing skills required.

Tailored to discriminating Hip Hop beatmakers and producers in dire need of guitar flavor, Hop Riffs by sound designer Niall McCallum features a collection of 80+ presets for the Strum GS-2 virtual instrument and the free AAS Player plugin (VST/VST3, AU and AAX).

Feel the groove take over your arrangements with this laid-back collection inspired by the modern wave of LoFi hip hop flooding the internet, as well as pioneers of the genre’s classic 90s boom bap period. Hop Riffs features 12 hip hop sub-genres, 84 guitar presets, and 84 strumming patterns playable with your own chord progressions.

Watch Hop Riffs’ deceptively simple strumming patterns come to life once combined with your favorite groovy drum beat making it dance and spark all over your song. From gentle chord figures and glistening arpeggios, to punchy dark riffs and atmospheric background textures, kick back and ignite your next beat with Hop Riffs’ generous sprinkling of rich effects and smooth, versatile tones.

Hop Riffs is on sale for the introductory price of $19 USD until March 27th, 2023 (regular $39 USD).

In celebration of the new sound pack, all Strum GS-2 products are 50% off during the intro promotion. This includes the Strum GS-2 +Packs bundle with all 13 expansions (now just $169 USD).
