Soundtrack Loops presents Bent Beats loops & one-shot samples.
Circuit bending is the craft of extracting and modifying the electronic sound playback devices in old vintage toys, cheap instruments, and other noise-making appliances. With their voltmeters, soldering irons and alligator clips, the benders trigger new sounds, all rewired for craziness. The best of these find their way into great modern music and sound design, and can easily make a track stand out in totally unique ways. But getting these sounds is only half the battle—they need to be heavily produced to fit in, which here essentially means cut through. That's where Bent Beats comes in—you get great, finely processed circuit-bent samples that are drag 'n' drop ready to shine, in both beat loop and one-shot forms. Blended in with the bent material, you'll also find a generous selection of complementary sounds, including beats, scratches, and synths, that make it even easier to integrate the gritty, mid-forward circuit-bent material into your mixes. Try Bent Beats if you're into old-school boom-bap, lo-fi hip-hop, abstract electronica, and beguiling, CocoRosie-style pop. Topped off with 44 loops, 84 One-shots & long circuit bent samples, a bonus Ableton Live Drum Rack, and cover art by Ric Shultz, score this seriously bent construction kit and back your own music and the Soundtrack Loops mothership, in its ongoing mission of supporting artists that support each other. 24-bit 48 kHz stereo file. Formats: ACIDized .wav and Apple-looped .aif.
Bent Beats is available to download from the Soundtrack Loops website for $25. It is also on sale in the KVR Marketplace for $15 for a limited time.
