Sample Diggers has released Omar Vocals, a sample pack featuring Omar Lye-Fook, who has been described by some as the father of British Neo Soul.

With radio support from Giles Peterson, Trevor Nelson and a genuine respect from his fans, not only in the Soul scene, Omar also has a following in the Hip Hop, Garage and House scenes too and has been remixed by top producers such as Zed Bias, Henrik Schwarz and many more. Omar’s latest album “The Man” has been well received and recently he did a Boiler Room appearance live from Giles Peterson’s basement alongside his brother The Scratch Professor, who is also another talent from this extremely musical family.

With this pack we have touched all bases, but the focus is straight from the heart Soul. The samples range from 80-120Bpm and were recorded through the Universal Audio 6176 and a Focusrite ISA preamp, to add that extra warmth at the input stage. The pack offers clean and processed versions of the Samples and there are also produced loops at 120Bpm aimed at the Garage and House producers. There are also spoken word samples, ad-libs, One Shots, short ideas and sound designed Vox FX that can be used in a variety of genres. All the samples and loops are tagged in the file name by tempo and key, making them easy to use in any DAW or sampler.
