Apollo Sound has launched its sample pack LoFi Hip-Hop Guitar, a collection of super chill and melodic lofi guitar sounds performed by gifted chillhop producer and professional session guitar player Michael Melkumian.
Especially for this release we have recorded for you extremely sought-after guitar type – hollow body electric guitar. This guitar is considered the standard in lofi, chillhop, jazz music & has its’ own unique sound which is very recognizable but it’s difficult to replicate it using a standard electric guitar.
To make this library top-notch we took Ibanez AF75 hollow body electric guitar, Vox AC15CH limited edition guitar amp head, Orange PPC212OB guitar cabinet and recorded guitar sound with three ways: JHS PulpNPeel V4 DI pedal, AKG C414 condenser microphone, Shure SM58 dynamic microphone. We’ve processed all the three signals via analogue preamps & compressors, equalized and mixed it together to perfection.
Eventually, we got stunning collection of lofi guitar loops, chord progressions & guitar melodies recorded in 7 different tempos and more than 10 different keys. But in our opinion the main thing in this pack is not loops, but guitar one-shots! We’ve recorded, processed with a vintage gear & digged from vinyl a great set of lofi guitar chords, licks & slides. Jazzy, funky, bluesy, soulful, sad, happy, calm: you can play & combine these guitar one-shots for all eternity and it gives you really infinite inspiration in lofi hip hop beats production!
The sample pack is available for £14.95 GBP at Loopmasters, with parts starting from £8.95 GBP.
The 808 Bass Samples pack features a collection of high quality 808 samples.
To get the best result we took authentic iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine and few great analog & digital hardware synths (Dave Smith Mopho, Yamaha Motif, Access Virus, Korg Volca Bass), sampled a massive amount of sound sources from them, tuned and mixed it to perfection. After that we went crazy a lil’ bit and started to experiment. Processed the 808 sounds with Akai reel-to-reel tape, Roland SP-404 sampler, distortion/fuzz guitar effect’ pedals and many many different plug-ins.
Eventually, we got 180 unique 808 one shots & effects, 50 boomin’ 808 bass loops, 50 detailed 808 midi loops, 45 exclusive 808 synth presets (Serum, Massive, Spire) and 26 incredible custom-made 808 synth patches for KONTAKT sampler. You can find here the whole spectrum of 808 and 808 type sounds you can only imagine: distorted 808s, chorused 808s, lo-fied 808s, saturated 808s, glided 808s and etc.
This library is endlessly inspiring and irreplaceable in hand of any artist or music producer. You can play with these sounds for all eternity. Processed & clean 808 samples, short & long 808 samples, flexible synth presets can bring your mixes to industry-standard worldwide hits! Don’t waste your time, download this 808 treasure and become a supasta!
