Splice has launched the Wave Racer Sample Pack on its Splice Sounds platform.
Tom Purcell, better known by his stage name Wave Racer, is an Australian DJ and future bass producer from Sydney.
His sound, often classified as future and neon, bursts with playful energy and brightness, akin to a Japanese anime soundtrack or something heard on a dancing video game.
Wave Racer’s pack includes 256 loops and one-shots, and 6 presets for the Serum wavetable synthesizer.
Cozy sounds for the winter
Some call it “wintering.” Splice pulled influences from modern R&B artists such as Daniel Ceasar, Frank Ocean, and SZA to craft a collection of colored chords and progressions with added textures from ice and snow field recordings for an icy edge.
Like a crackling fire on a cold night, warm synths like the CS80 clone, Deckard’s Dream were the backbone of this pack.
Vocals from Marie Dahlstrøm
The lastest VOX sample pack features a collection of heartwarming samples from the London-based songstress Marie Dahlstrøm.
Lush Vocals & Keys is designed to reach producers, not only in R&B, but creators experimenting in many styles and genres.
Marie wanted to create a versatile sample pack of clean, as well as processed vocal and instrumental ideas, including a variety of riffs, runs, beautifully stacked harmonies, short phrases & vocal hooks for producers to explore their creativity freely.
Moving to London 9 years ago from her hometown of Roskilde in Denmark – Dahlstrøm made a significant name for herself, instantly becoming recognised by her warm, jazz-tinged, soulful R&B vocal tones.
Since the release of her 2011 EP ‘Feelings’ – Dahlstrøm has elegantly toed the line between Jazz, R&B, and Hiphop, taking her fans on quite the journey over these past 9 years. In 2020 she released her debut album ‘Like Sand’, the title track for which stands with over 2.3 million plays.
Sounds of Toronto 6-side
CAPSUN ProAudio has a new pack out titled Snow In The 6ix, a collection with a focus on the alt R&B and trap-soul sounds of the Toronto 6-side.
Taking cues from Drake, 40 Shebib, Partynextdoor, and The Weeknd, among others, this pack leans into the cold, frosty winter nights of Toronto.
Heavy but hopeful, this collection features hazy atmospherics, resampled melodies, dark and pounding 808s, song-starters inspired by late-night writing sessions, and more.
Deep Downtempo and Jazz Hop 2
Sample Magic blurs the lines between emotive and expansive to reflective and resonant with a new collection of loops and one-shots.
