Sample Magic has released Ambient & Chill: an expansive 1.3GB collection subsuming elements of leftfield electronica, chillout and downtempo.
- Drum Loops: 145 tape-distressed and sepia-toned beats blended from original live breaks, organic percussion, vintage drum machines and obscure found-sound samples. Many offered with variants.
- Inspiration Loops: 17 folders of blissful, fuzzy and dreamlike song-starters broken out into their constituent stems. Synths, basslines, pads, guitars, pianos, atmospheres - they're all here, key- and tempo-labeled for total ease.
- Synth & Keys Loops: From tranquil and hazy to sombre and reflective: 54 compelling key-labeled toplines.
- Music Loops: Rich and complex melodic backing loops dense with real pianos, xylophones, bells, guitars and more. Many offered with variants.
- Guitar Loops: Fireside acoustics, FX-heavy textures and drifting progressions oozing indie credibility.
- Percussion Loops: Woodblocks, shakers, classic drum machines and more combine across 59 percussion lines primed for instant layering.
- Ambience & Found-Sound: Mountain streams, ocean surf, birdsong and urban bustle to breathe life into the mix.
- Pads & Soundscapes: Synth swells, blurred textures and battered melodics waiting to unfurl.
- Chords: Re-sampled chord shots oozing lo-fi character and analogue warmth. 77 fine key-labeled hits to inspire unique progressions.
- Drum Hits: Dive into folders of kicks, claps, snares, hats and percussion layered and tweaked from a variety of classic drum machines (including Linn Drum LM1 and Roland TR707) with studio and field recordings.
