Loopmasters has released Live House Strings, a collection of live house strings recorded and produced at the Monster Sounds studios, featuring timeless multi tracked Violin loops that will lift your House productions.
Over the years many classic house tracks have used strings mostly played in from soft synths or re sampled from old disco recordings, so going back to the origins of house music from seminal tracks like Derrick Mays “Strings of Life “we thought it was about time there was a violin sample pack inspired by house music, full of nuances and tone that only a real instrument and player can deliver. With chart topping groups like Clean Bandit using real violin and Cello in their tracks, its shows live strings still have their place and sound great in today’s modern productions.
For each loop to give as full and wide a sound as possible we have recorded multiple layers in different microphone positions to eliminate phasing issues.
To build your tracks and to give you full creative control we have split each idea out into its component layers, low, mid, high, or separate melody lead lines and chords and supplied them as separate loops so you have full control of the mix. This means you can easily remove any elements that are too busy in the mix. For those that want the instant impact there is a bounce of the full idea to simply drop into your production.
The Loops are recorded at 120 and 122 bpm these loops will suit many different styles of House music with direct and memorable melodies, driving top lines and also house inspired chord sequences. The loops will also work well with other genres such as Disco, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop and Drum and Bass.As a Bonus we have also included a classic house style piano line for each string idea, this helps to see how the string lines fit in situ so you can quickly get a vibe for the string lines underlying melody.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £24.95 GBP.
