Back with another soundhound, this time we checking out another collection from p5audio.
If you like guitar loops and riffs, you may definitely be interested in this one
Billboard Guitar Loops: RnB Edition
What is Billboard Guitar RnB Edition?
209 electric guitar loops Usher, R Kelly, Beyonce, Ne-Yo, etc…
played by one of Dr Dre’s guitarists…Aaron McLain.

Each loop has the tempo and key included in the name of the sample for easy locating and mixing.
- Content: 209 loops
- Format: Wav, REX (reason refill), and Apple Loops
- Price: $34.99
How do they sound?
Of course there are a few of the “customary” styled riffs that seem to show up in some form or variation in every hip hop, rnb, or urban guitar library, but it’s all good, they still sound fresh.
The quality of the recorded loops is professional and clean, no clicks, no pops, and even feels like there is a little bit of room ambiance on them.
There is enough in the various tempos to keep you busy, with some loops being a variation or continuation of the other.
I really dig the 60 – around 80 bpm or so loops, they seem to glide across the sound palette.
The faster tempo loops are cool and usable but didn’t get me open like the lower tempo ones.
Well produced, well played, and well recorded.
So what’s the bottom line?
This is one of those “foundational” libraries that I think every producer should have.
You know, the one’s that are just usable, period.
It gives you a great collection of well played guitar riffs at a price that won’t break the bank or have your wife breaking a bank over your head!
I give this collection 4 out of 5 subs, definitely something in here for most folks.
The guitar riffs don’t sound cheesy, in fact, many make you want to loop them up and build a song around it…no chopping needed.
Whatever you choose to do with them, just make sure you check them out, they even give you some free loops on the site to check before you buy.
