Clocking in 15 Melodic Loops, and over 60 one-shots, this sample contains a surplus of rainy-day vibes to drive your productions. In addition to pianos and dark synths, Swoope also recorded one-of-a-kind vocal samples to bring a finishing touch to your productions.

The iconic low resolution sound that records, and then later cassette tapes, emitted when played, and how instruments like electric keyboards, pianos and guitars sounded through these mediums is always a prized capture of us sampling producers.

One of the biggest benefits in using analog outboard gear and instruments is the “warmth” that these tools provide. While warmth can described as the presence of low-end, or the absence of high-end, we find warmth in the present realness of analog circuitry. “Earth Tone” is all about warmth. Every loop features an in-your-face, fat analog presence that you won’t anywhere except in real gear. At just under 70 one-shots, and 10 Melodic Loops (stems included), there is no shortage of analog dirt and warmth to be found in this pack. Round electric bass, vintage electric pianos, and retro analog synths.

Chill-hop is a genre that appropriately encompasses the two entities after which it is titled. Chill: laid back, contemplative, relaxing. Hop: movin’, bouncing, head-nodding. Chill-hop draws from the lo-fi aesthetic of modern chill-wave, jazz, and R&B while being structured by the backbone of old school hip-hop and rap music. Our latest release, “Somber Soul” appropriately encompasses all that chill-hop is; smooth electric pianos, ambient guitar licks, and grooving bass lines. With 87 one-shots of keyboards and guitars processed with various different textures, and dry stem options for each of the 15 Melodic Loops in this pack, “Somber Soul” gives the user a plethora of options to create laid-back vibes never heard before.
