Fatloud Urban Orchestra 3 review

Yo what’s good fam! Back at you with another soundhound

Today I’m checking out one of my favorite companies, Fatloud.

This is the third volume of their Urban Orchestra series, straight up orchestra loops with an urban edge.

Let’s check it out

So what’ is Urban Orchestra 3?

The concept behind Urban Orchestra is a collection of brass, strings, horns, keys, etc…

all played in styles that work well for hip hop, pop, rnb, and urban music

They come with key info and in tempos of 100, 95, 90, 85, and 80 bpm.

All perfect tempos for urban music


Quick Specs

  • content: 75 orchestral loops in multi formats
  • format: 16bit/24bit wav, apple loops, rex, refill
  • price: $25.19

How does it sound?

We know if it comes from Fatloud it’s gonna sound dope, at least I’ve come to expect this.

This collection is no exception. What I like about it, is that it is diverse.

You have huge powerful chords, smooth keys, deep brass, clean pad like riffs, and even some dirty vinyl style loops.

The loops are long enough that you can find stuff to chop, but dope enough that you’ll be fine if you don’t chop em

The recordings themselves are clean and high quality, no random clicks and pops.

Also each loops has the key information in it, perfect for quickly mixing and matching loops in your project.

I like how you have a mixture of real sounding strings and synth style strings/horns together, really gives it a dope texture.

What’s the bottom line?

The bottom line is that it’s Fatloud, you really can’t go wrong with anything they put out, their track record speaks for itself.

The price isn’t too steep and the quality greatly outshines the price, there’s enough variety to keep you busy chopping things up.

However, the parts are so well played that they could be the perfect part to finish or start your next piece, you don’t always have to chop it up!

I give this library 4 out of 5 subs, very solid orchestra collection that definitely has an urban edge to it.

No matter if you want to go smooth or rough, you can find it.
