Looptone has released its latest sample pack NY Loft Classics, a beautifully crafted set of uplifting loops and sounds in a chunky, fat and funky disco house style, designed for producers of filter house, classic house, nu disco, hip-hop, funk and soul.
For NY Loft Classics, Looptone have drawn inspiration from the genre-defining mixes of loft party innovator and DJ David Mancuso, putting together a stylistic collection of samples that mix the live instrumentation and musical aspect of funk and disco with the sonic sensibility of classic house. These royalty-free loops are perfect for house and nu disco tracks.
The premise of the pack was to make a set of sounds with the musicality, tight grooves and uplifting sound of soul, funk and disco, then combine that with the modern production ethics of contemporary electronic music. Aimed at house, disco house, funk, soul and even hip-hop producers, these samples will provide boundless inspiration. The instrumentation includes fat Fender Rhodes, uplifting party pianos, rhythmic clavinet, elevating strings, funky guitars and smooth analogue-style synths, backed up with driving, meticulously tight programmed drums and percussion.
As well as a ton of regular loops and shots, NY Loft Classic features 20 funk-fuelled song ideas, separating the individual parts – keys, drums, percussion, bass, and synths – to manipulate as you wish, also including a mixed bounce and 2 filtered bounces of each “song’ for that authentic filter house sound.
Also included are MIDI files for the 76 main musical riffs, enabling easy re-voicing and the addition of further layers.
Finally, you also get 20 house-style drum ideas, each one split into its component loops, for building up and breaking down as you see fit.
The sample pack is available for purchase from Loopmasters for £29.95 GBP.
