Samplebase has announced the release of two new SoundBlocks for the Satellite sample-synth player.
4th Floor - Tech | House | Electro - Side A and Side B are two collections of 4-on-the-floor House drum loops. Side A includes "straight ahead" House loops, while Side B is slightly more experimental, though still club-ready. Produced by Patchen, these creative loops work in a broad range of tempos, thanks to Samplebase's X-Time processing.
X-Time is a new technology developed by Samplebase that lets Samplebase developers "super-stretch" sliced loops with smooth and natural results. Not only does this increase the range of usable tempos for each loop, but it also improves the quality of sliced loops at any tempo.
According to Samplebase, the Satellite player opens a multitude of possibilities for instant mixing, mashing, and effects combinations within 4th Floor, eliminating a fundamental limitation of raw Wav or Rex download loops. There is immediate control over filter cutoff by moving Satellite's mod wheel, which is coupled with 10 assignable filter types and resonance control. Eight "click and learn" Quick Edit knobs provide further immediate control. Each loop is broken out into stems, with individual volume, panning, effects, filters, LFOs and envelopes.
4th Floor offers several loop combinations pre-built and ready for the trigger finger, including menus that allow for swapping sounds, and menus of kicks, snares, hats, fx, etc. Both collections also include a slice "kit" of every loop for creating new patterns.
4th Floor - Tech | House | Electro - Side A and Side B are suitable for most types of modern dance music, especially Tech, Minimal, and Electro House. They are available for instant download priced at $29 each.
