Yurt Rock has announced its new sample library Swatkins Talkbox Vol. 1, a collection of 389 talkbox loops and samples recorded from 25 sessions by Steve “Swatty” Watkins.

“What is that thing??” is the reaction most people have when encountering their first talkbox performance. Invented in 1939 and known as a “throat microphone”, the talkbox has gone on to become a staple in modern music, with musicians like Stevie Wonder, Peter Frampton, and Jeff Beck using it to create extremely unique melodic hooks and effects.

To produce our first-ever talkbox library, we partnered with LA-based artist and talkbox wizard, Steve “Swatty” Watkins. The result? Swatkins Talkbox Vol 1, a loop and sample collection truly like no other.

Organized into 3 main categories: “Chords”, “EFX” and “Loops”, this library features performances in all 12 keys and in a wide range of tempos and feels, ensuring you’ll find the perfect sample or loop for your own production.

The sample pack is on sale for the intro price of $29 USD for a limited time (regular $39 USD).
