Ableton has introduced LoFi HipHop by Comakid, an extensive collection of lo-fi sounds, samples and loops that is all about texture and feel.
Lo-fi hip hop celebrates the unpolished – it gives happy accidents, sonic artifacts, warped tape and dusty old samplers their time to shine. Comakid created this Pack with that wonky aesthetic in mind. It has all the elements you need to make fully-formed tracks, or just add a little lo-fi haze to your projects.
This Pack contains a wealth of sounds – 15 Drum Racks, 78 Instrument Racks, 9 Effect Racks, 278 MIDI clips, 174 audio loops and 278 one-shot samples. There’s plenty of sampled hardware to play with, including Junos, a selection of Korg synths, Casio keys and guitar loops sampled from wobbly cassette players.
All these sounds were created especially for this Pack, complete with sonic peculiarities. You’ll find wavering synths, fuzzed out bass, degraded kalimba, and a plethora of percussive sounds. Add some extra atmosphere to your music with ambient textures such as birds, street sounds, tape noise and water.
LoFi HipHop for Live costs 49 EUR. A free demo pack is available for download.
