Splice Sounds has released a new sample pack from Brooklyn-based 22-year-old musician umru. As part of the Beyond Hyperpop collection, the third title in the Sound Cache series of sample packs brings 450 loops and one shots including drums, synths, bass, fx, and more.
Though umru started out in Soundcloud’s beat and bass music scenes where he was making “producer music” that focused on sound design rather than songwriting, he has settled into the producer role. Today, he focuses most of his releases on collaborations with vocalists.
He shared, “Most of the material for my packs comes straight out of projects I’ve started—I do a lot of sound design in the process of writing or producing rather than sitting down to separately make samples, and I think that ends up being the best material that I already know can be used in the context of a song. Of course, I have hours of totally random harsh noise sound design as well, but I’ll even try to shape those into specific uses like risers or impacts. If it’s something I find useful or inspiring myself I assume others would too.”
The sample pack and all individual sounds are available to Splice subscribers. New users can sign up for a 14-day free trial to try Splice.
