OMBRA When it comes to the dance floor, sometimes any beat will do. But those exploring complex sampling and experimenting with avant-garde textures need rhythms that mesh with thoughtful instrumentation. Ombra is a prolific collection of 100 original drum loops / 172 One Shots ready to serve as the starting point for your next new movement. This assortment covers various tempos and styles, and each loop is uniquely inspiring for creating rhythms both intelligent and primal. DARKNESS VS LIGHT The Ombra pack features 100 fresh drum loops but casts a shadow over half of the loops. The first 50 loops are processed with a studio ready, “expensive” drum sound. These beats —richly compressed and spatially tailored—are ready for immediate entry into a thumping body of work. The other 50 loops also pound hard but are otherwise unaffected. These unshadowed loops are a prime canvas for creatives who prefer to start from scratch. This half of Ombra lies in wait for your own personal dash of filters, distortion, delay, or whatever other daring thing you might throw at your beats. BUILDING BLOCKS For many inventive producers, starting from scratch means starting from the individual hits themselves. That’s why Ombra also includes 150 single hits pulled directly from the drum loops. Each hit is a hi-res capsule of cadence, easily manipulated, modulated, or reversed. These hits are especially at home in Elecktron’s Digitakt, Octatrack, and Analog Rytm, and any other sampler that accepts WAV samples. ENDLESS CONTINGENCIES Whatever irons you have in the fire, Ombra loops have something for everyone forging IDM, neurofunk, and tec h house tracks. It’s easy to make these beats your own and take them across genres.
