Loopmasters has launched its new VIBE Series sample pack Soul Squeeze Vol. 1, a royalty free collection of loops and samples that carries inspiration from a wide variety of sources to bring something special and unique.

The 1.95GB pack brings an injection of soul with a distinct retro ’70s vibe, with influences from ’70s soundtracks and artists such as Isaac Hayes, Kool & The Gang, Minnie Riperton and more modern inspirations including Zero 7, Morcheeba, Michael Kiwanuka.

This collection was produced and performed using only vintage-correct instruments and gear, both software and hardware. Everything has been processed via tape and through valve hardware for more analogue character. Guitars within include Telecasters, Stratocasters, Jazzmasters, Casinos and Emperor archtops. Synths include a Minimoog, Odyssey, Solina String Ensemble.

You’ll hear the sounds of some of the finest period-correct guitar amps and pedals used – fuzz, tremolo, wah and more bringing beautiful modulation and fatness to the sounds within. All hand percussion and claps were recorded with vintage ribbon mics.

Comprising 398 loops and samples, Soul Squeeze Vol. 1 costs £34.95 GBP. Parts are sold starting from £4.95 GBP.
