Dope Loops Lil Dope Piano

Hey what’s good fam!

I’m back with another sample library to show you, this one is from Fatloud through their Dope Loops sub label.

It’s part of the “Lil Dope” series, which basically gives you a small dose of Dope Loops content at an attractive price.

Today I’m checking out the Lil Dope Piano, so let’s get into it!

What is Lil Dope: Piano?


This is a small collection of piano loops, chords, and MIDI files from Dope Loops.

The idea is to give you a quick dose of inspiration and content in a particular instrument.

As always you get the tempo and key information in the files for quick auditioning and use.

So it’s for those that want some new sounds, or that want some piano sounds but don’t need a huge library for it.

Quick Specs

  • content: 20 loops, 20 chords, 20 MIDI loops
  • format: wav, acid, aiff, refill, rex, apple loops, MIDI
  • price: $17.97
  • product page:

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderThe style of the loops is instantly usable without being cheesy sounding at all.

I also like the fact that the loops are long enough that you can extract a few different pieces if you wish.

The inclusion of oneshot chords really makes composing new ideas fast and quick.

For those that just want to “sample” with MIDI and point it to other sounds, having the MIDI files really gives you a a way to get creative.

Even though MIDI doesn’t make sound in itself, I still think it’s inclusion is part of the overall sound and experience of the library

So what’s the bottom line?

Sometimes you’re just looking for a little inspiration, maybe a specific instrument or something to work with without dropping out for a large collection of sounds.

This library and the rest in the Lil Dope series allow you to quickly get a good collection of usable sounds and hits at a decent price.

4subsI give Lil Dope Piano 4 out of 5 subs, it’s well played, well organized, and instantly usable.

Go on over and check it out for yourself

Don’t forget to checkout the rest of the series as well as all the other dope samples over at fatloud

    Is there no way to chop up the samples to the beat, I mean by the measure/bar so that it will be in sync with the beat always.

  5. SoundsAndGear says:

    you can chop it however you wish, I prefer to chop it up manually but you can autoslice it and have it create a pattern to play in time with your tempo if you wish

    SJ: I agree with your 4.0/5.0 rating. This is a very nice pint size kit. I was hoping you would review this & “Guess What?…You Did”.
    Thanks again for delivering.

  18. catchspot says:

    Is that red box a scarlett focusrite? if so would i be able to sample from vinyl with that directly into maschine? thanks

  19. SoundsAndGear says:

    yeah it’s the scarlett 8i6, you can run the outputs of your table into it’s inputs if you want, you may need a mixer in between depending on what type of turntable you have

  22. SkcBeatz says:

    Hey bro! Think its great what your doing showing people new kits and vsts ect… But why not show these people what a scale or key is or even chords before dropping piano samples? Most people cant figure out the key let alone scale…. Lucky im not in that group and know my theory.. But to help others…. think they would love it if u made a tutorial on it bro! Enough love and do your thing bro! wish u the best!SKCBEATZ

    Is it possible to do a Vid comparing this to prime loops?

  39. SoundsAndGear says:

    prime loops is a company not just one product so it would be hard to compare it to a whole company, however I do have some videos on various prime loops products
