Electronisounds has announced the release of Downtempo Spirals, a new 2.5 GB collection of samples for any producer who likes to make slower-tempo music. It includes 95 folders of categorized samples (over 3,000 samples in all).
Downtempo Spirals has everything you need to create a vast array of musical genres - beats, musical loops and phrases, REX loops, fx, groove kits, one-shots, chords, soundfonts and multi-samples. Five producers helped create this project - so you get a varied assortment of styles and production techniques.
This project was created with slower tempo music in mind, but we're not talking about mellow, laid-back samples only - some hard-hitting sounds and grooves are featured too. The only limit for this sample collection was to keep the BPM at 100 or under.
Electronisounds says the producers "went pretty crazy" creating the loops and sounds for Downtempo Spirals: JTEKK put his unique spin on some "really phat hip hop grooves that are sure to spin some heads" and Rhythm Lab produced "some of the thickest beats we've ever released". Many of the loops here are provided in .REX2 format as well as .WAV format, meaning you can use them at tempos much higher than 100BPM for maximum versatility in your own original music.
The prices is $34.99.
