Yo what’s good fam!
Back with another soundhound for ya, today I’m checking out some guitars from Patchbanks.com
Now, you may be wondering who they are but trust me, you know their products/style.
The production team is the same production team that was behind motion samples.
So you will see some of the older libraries that they created while at motion samples as well as some brand new stuff.
let’s peep it!
So what’s RnB Acoustic Guitars all about?
It’s all about acoustic guitar loops with an rnb feel.
This is a collection of 100 guitar loops, most about 4 bars long.
They rang in tempo from 60-92bpm.
Picked, fingered, mic’d, amped, etc.
You also get not just straight guitar riffs but there are some harmonics and chords added to the loops to make them fuller in various points so you can really build around a single loop.
- content: 100 loops
- format: wav
- price: $25

How does it sound?
This is a very clean and useful library.
There’s a bunch of variety here from sparse clean riffs to chord heavy grooves.
The loops are long so there is plenty to chop up and the recording is well done so you don’t get any unwanted artifacts.
This definitely has the smooth, rnb feel to it.
Many of the loops you wouldn’t even want to chop up, they are so well played it’s hard to pick a single part out as you just want to build around the loop.
Which is perfectly fine of course.
I do like the fact that even though they are aimed at rnb, they have a variety among them so it doesn’t all sound the same and you can get a lot of use out of it for hip hop, pop, or anything else you may be doing.
What’s the bottom line?
Bottom line is, when mostion samples got hacked many of us were left looking for places to find the quality libraries we’ve come to love from them.
Luckily the producers behind some of those hottest libraries found another place to distribute their products under.
Patchbanks.com also has a bunch of custom patch libraries for the Access Virus (hence the name patchbanks) but I’m glad they added the former motion samples production crew to their roster because I’ve been a fan of that production team for a while.
The library is what you would expect given their history, and I’m really looking forward to some new libraries as well.
I give this library 4.5 out of 5, it’s a straight forward, clean, very useful guitar collection at a price that won’t break the bank.
Definitely head on over and listen to their demo: http://www.patchbanks.com/rb-acoustic-guitars/
honestly, just grab it if you need some sick acoustic guitar riffs, seriously.
Looking forward to checking out the new stuff too, so stay tuned.
