"I selected a bunch of sounds that I then polished and turned into new loops, new synths, and new vocal ideas." - Catnapp
Dig your claws into 136 loops and samples ranging from dirty, overdriven beats and destroyed, pitch-bending tones to mellow synth pads and one-shot vocal phrases.
Catnapp explains her process for creating Emotional Drive, and the inspiration that fuels her signature sound.
"For my Sounds.com pack I tried to create something I would find useful myself as a producer. I don’t take the sound as it is - I slice it up, I take one little moment from it, run it through an effects chain, run it through some pedals, and make it my own. I’m offering a pack that has both some ready-made sounds that can create inspiration for a song, and creates a lot of texture and little soundbites that you can isolate." - Robot Koch
