It's time to celebrate the weird, strange and deranged in our latest sample scoop 'Unusual Percussion Samples'! We've shaken up the standards of percussive sampling to bring you this box of wonky rhythms and crooked beats fresh from the Prime Loops percussion laboratory! If you wanna beat down the boring norms of conventional percussion and construct some truly unique patterns then this is the hit you need.
Ever found yourself tapping away on ordinary objects, finding they make fascinating sounds? Put the bongos away and forget about re-skinning that snare… 'Unusual Percussion Samples' offers a highly inventive array of convention crushing loops and one-shots from ordinary objects which make extraordinary sounds! You won't believe some of the things we've sampled; from suitcases to shoes and flower pots to plates, we filled the studio with everything we could lay our beat-happy hands on.
Featuring the craftwork of Prime Loops producer Jimmy Ferrufino and tapping in at 115MB, 'Unusual Percussion Samples' loads your sample archive with over 200 individual samples, each recorded through top-of-the-range mics and professionally mastered at a crisp and clean 24-bit High Definition sample rate. There's plenty of debate over which is the best software sampler but who really cares when the contents of this pack will sync automatically with any major DAW? Available in multiple formats, this quirky percussion sample pack comes via direct download so all you need to do is select your sample from the download folder, drag it over your software and drop it right in!
If you're adding any of these samples to a pre-existing mix then they'll adjust to match the tempo automatically but you can still alter it by clicking the end of the Prime Loops sample and dragging the length to meet your chosen BPM whilst it’s in your mix. We've stuffed in 11 folders, 9 of which are dedicated to specific items, housing a variety of beats knocked out on objects such as boxes, buckets, computer cases, flower pots, keys, lamps, shoes, staplers and even a suit case whilst the remaining 2 folders feature an archive of one-shots and a collection of loops performed on other random objects.
So tune in to the alternative airwaves and apply an inventive array of eccentric possibilities to your productions with 'Unusual Percussion Samples'! This one guarantees to set your beats apart from the rest and it's supplied completely royalty free, so you can kick the habit of filling out those frustrating sample clearance forms.
A useful collection of organic sounding loops and hits that could be used in the place of more traditional percussion or drum instruments to add a lot of interest to your tracks!
