Samplebase has released two new Soundblocks: Bionic Beats and Asian Beat Companion.
- Bionic Beats is a unique collection of gritty, glitchy and mangled synthesized breakbeats created by KiloWatts. Each drum loop is provided with a full mix as well as the individual “stems”, so users can mix and match over 130 kick, snare, hat, and noise loops, and process every part separately. Drum kits containing many of the individual sounds are also included, so users can program their own beats. In Satellite, Samplebase’s plug-in and standalone sampler-synth, users can automatically sync to host tempo and experiment with creating a multitude of unique layered combinations with Satellite’s built-in 16 track mixer. The generative glitchy drum sequences in Bionic Beats, with quirky but precise cuts and edits, can also be tweaked in real-time using Satellite’s modulation wheel and quick edit knobs. The sounds were creatively programmed for instant control over filters, effects, and more.
- Asian Beat Companion is designed for creating Asian inspired Hip Hop, electronic and experimental music, as well as film scores. Asian Beat Companion features over 130 unique loops from three popular Asian instruments, all performed and recorded by professional musicians in Malaysia. The three instruments represented include the Guzheng, which is a relative of the Koto and belongs to the zither family, the Sheng, a mouth-blown free reed instrument with vertical pipes, and the Yangquin, which is a dulcimer played with bamboo mallets.
