Back with another library from Loopmasters.com
Last time we checked out some jazzy hip hop from doodlebug
Today…gonna smooth it out a lil bit with some electro-chilled rnb sweetness
Now I know what you’re thinking…so stop
This isn’t your typical, radio-pop, construction kit type of rnb product
So let’s get into it!
What is Live Lounge?
It’s a smooth RnB library that’s NOT a construction kit…nothing against them, it’s just…you know…
I like stuff that is just sounds and not necessarily a construction kit.
This joint comes with loops, hits, single shot chords, and even kontakt instruments, gotta love it.
To my ears, it’s more of an electro infused version of rnb.
Very mellow, silky, and chilled.
- content: 1gb samples
- format: wav, acid, rex, refill, ableton live, kontakt, apple loops, hailion, exs, stylus rmx, apple loops, nnxt

How does it sound?
This is a really unique and nice collection. It’s not chasing the typical RnB that you hear on the radio…it’s way more chilled, with a hint of downtempo airiness.
My type of stuff!
Acoustic, electric and synth bass loops, organs, eps, and acoustic pianos, strings, synths, percussion, guitar….all melt together into a smooth sonic buttery of sorts.
There’s a sort of “sheen” on these that’s hard to describe, it’s not really a sparkle type of sound but more of an ambient, lush sound.
I like how it’s organized, into sound folders, different types of sounds like loops and one-shots, and also sampler patches for those that use kontakt, exs, etc.
The sound is the most important, and it’s really, really smooth.
Well recorded, well played, and well organized, sounds like a winner to me!
So what’s the bottom line?
Great library, very unique and innovative how the perfectly meshed together so many different styles.
RnB, soul, electro, funk, downtempo, chillout…etc…it’s just plain ole good music.
I really love the layout and format of the library, it’s all about the sounds and not about the pre-made tracks.
I like that you get multisample patches so that you can play them in your sequencer/sampler of choice.
I would have liked to see some acoustic bass, strings, guitar, and synth patches available but overall it’s a really good collection.
I give Live Lounge 4 out of 5 subs, it’s really a refreshing library that lends itself to many diverse ways of working.
