Loopmasters has launched Looptone’s new sample pack takes house back to the city where it all began with Chicago Jack Grooves, a collection of jackin’ drums, fat synth basslines, ear-catching music loops and uplifting FX.

Getting the party started, 39 beats provide a range of rhythmic foundations for your old-school house work-outs, putting those classic Roland x0x-boxes through their paces, and all processed for maximum punch and mix-readiness. These are provided as full loops as well as individual kick, clap, hats, top and percussion stems.

Meanwhile, down at the low end, Chicago Jack Grooves’ 50 synth bass loops serve up a diversity of bouncing b-lines, ranging in frequency focus from sub-heavy and understated to mid-present and in-your-face. And with 37 synth music loops spanning the gamut of riffing and textural flavours – arps, leads, pads, strings, stabs and sequences – you’ve got a wealth of melodic and harmonic material for inspiring new tracks and embellishing existing ones.

Last but not least, and putting the icing on the cake, 100 FX samples take in everything from climactic risers, downshifters and whooshes to attention-grabbing crashes, lasers, wobbles, sirens and more.

Other recent Looptone titles include:

  • Hip Hop Keyboard Chops, an extensive collection of acoustic and electric piano loops, performed by crack UK keyboardist George Cooper.
  • Soul Magic, a supremely authentic library of 100% live loops, played by a virtuosic team of instrumentalists and produced by RocDust aka Chris Pedley of funk band The Baker Brothers.
  • Box Fresh Modular Techno, a stand-out library of basement-rumbling techno loops comes hot from the studio of acclaimed producer Ekoboy.
  • Deep Tech Vocals, stunning library of club-bound male vocal samples, delivered in soulful style by Nashville session singer Chris Burke.

The sample packs are available for purchase at the Loopmasters store, starting from £14.95 GBP.
