Sample Magic has announced two new sound libraries.

Sample Magic Live Hi-Hats

Live Hi-Hats features gritty, authentic, hi-hat grooves for an endless variety of genres.

Choice serving of 101 live hi-hat lines expertly recorded and precision-cut to add irresistible funk and groove to beats – regardless of genre.

Struggling to program beats with movement and energy? For many producers kicks and snares are easy enough, but recreating the multiple nuances of a hi-hat recording make the hat line almost impossible to realistically recreate using MIDI programming.

The sample pack costs £14.90 GBP.

Sample Magic’s Massive D&B Patches features deep, dark and mutating patches for D&B monsters.

Sample Magic Massive D&B Patches

From techy neuro-infused darkness to classic tech-step and brooding liquid vibes, D&B Patches covers traverses the entire genre spectrum across 101 fully macro-controllable Massive patches.

Expertly-crafted patches from scratch, each patch is sonically full-fat and malleable straight out of the box – so no need to get bogged down with resampling for that gnarly modulated sound.

Packed with gut-busting modded basses, raucous Reeses lacerating synth stabs, dubstep-inspired wobbles, techy arps, tension-wrenching FX and a selection of finely-honed synthetic drum hits, it’s an essential addition to any Massive user’s arsenal making cutting-edge D&B, neuro, techstep, dubstep and beyond.

The soundset costs £14.90 GBP. Requires NI Massive 1.3 or higher.
