Loopmasters has released Surefire Trap, a sound pack featuring loops, one shots, sampler patches, MIDI files and VST synth presets for trap music production.

Loopmasters Surefire Trap

Inside this collection you’ll find edgy bass loops, build ups, drums and melodies for all your needs. Drums come as full loops, kick & sub and no sub variations, to layer the rhythm section as you go. The all-important Trap builds are in 3 forms with Drums, Mixed Drums and Synths to raise the pressure before the drop! The melodic loops deliver a shot of potent Synth goodness with the odd vocal chop for good measure.

One shot samples feature Drums, FX and Vocal samples primed for Trap. Drums come hard and punchy – with snares, kicks, crashes, hihat rolls, percussions, claps and hihats. An extensive FX folder includes impacts, sweeps up and sweeps down – with white noise and risers galore. Vocal phrases are also included for that vital human element.

Surefire Trap also contains over 80 MIDI loops for instant drag-and-drop Bass and Melodies. These are perfect to use with the included VST presets for Sylenth, Spire and Massive – get ready to rip up the sound system! At 140 BPM this pack is organised into a range of musical keys, aimed directly at Trap.

Zen Ambient 2 is a new sample pack by percussionist Ralph Cree, featuring a deep collection of rich, melodic sounds featuring hypnotic rhythms, natural resonances and harmonic overtones.
