You already know what today is….
Big Fish Friday…
I love it, and you love it…so let’s just get on into it..
I also have a special surprise for you as well
Today I’m checking out some urban samples from the “Off the Hook” series, which is very popular, and always brings the heat.
Off the Hook 3 is what’s on the plate for today, so let’s see what’s good.
What is Off The Hook 3?
It is a hip hop and rnb sample library full of construction kits from one of the most well known series in sample cds.
Trust me, if you’ve messed with sample cds for any amount of time,
you know the Off the Hook series…
which specialize in urban hip hop and rnb construction kits.
They always have a nice blend of live instruments, drums, synths, etc…
in various keys and tempos so there’s plenty in here for sure.
- content: 5.1gb wave files (12gb total in various formats)
- format: wave, rex, apple loops
- price: $129.95
How does it sound?
It sounds really good, I really enjoyed some of the synths and keys in here, and the guitars as well. I would have liked more strings for sure, but it’s all good.
What surprised me, but really shouldn’t, is the drums in here are DOPE….
like…really usable. I love that they included single drum hits in this library.
The production is top notch as always with no clicks or pops to be heard, and I really like the mixture of live instruments and synths, gives a nice feel.
Also, it’s not just one style, so it’s a very diverse collection of hip hop and rnb in here, with even a lil neo soul action at some points.
What’s the bottom line?
This is another solid addition to the Off the Hook series, and as long as I’ve been messing with sample libraries, I’ve never come across anything from this series that isn’t immediately usable and great sounding.
I can’t stress again, that I really enjoyed the drums in this library a lot, I will definitely be building some kits from them for regular use!
I give this a 4.5 out of 5 subs, solid library, solid production, with the added bonus of single hit drums…a library after my own heart!
