Time to bring that sexy back baby!
Today I’m reviewing another sample collection sent over from motionsamples.com
This time we’re gonna sexy it out with some RnB style keys
What are R&B Soul Delite Keys?
Well, I’m glad you asked yo! According to the website:
Motion Samples presents an extraordinary collection of R&B’s finest ep, rhodes, piano and keyboard melodies with over 200 extended loops mixed down with Eventide processors for the perfect reverbs, delays and fx.
Never before have we offered so many melody ideas in one collection presenting great musicianship and soulful warm keyboard tones that will inspire you endlessly.
Highly recommended for R&B songwriters and producers.
That’s all fine and good, but what do they sound like? What about variety?
They sound amazing, the loops are rather long so it gives you a lot to work with.
But they production is where it stands out, they really went in on the style of play in this collection.
There are tons of variations in the typical R&B styles. Everything from R&B bangers, to ballads, to soulful hip hop and even a lil pop.
You can do whatever you want with these and the musicianship is second to none.
I was definitely impressed with the variation from loop to loop and I didn’t get board at all, each loop felt like it could become it’s own song.
Sound quality was on point as usual, no clipping or distortion, not too loud so you have headroom to put them in your own mixes.
Okay, so what about the value on this collection? Will it break the bank?
The short answer is NO. It comes in right at 40 bucks even, keeping it in the average price range for most pro level sample paks.
It’s still less than a full sample cd but don’t let that stop you, the quality and variety in this collection is well worth the price of admission.
Especially if you’re looking to get that smoother side of the R&B or Hip Hop into your tracks. The only way to even attempt to have some riffs and chops like this, is sampling from some of your favorite records, or hiring a keyboard player.
There is just no faking your way through a sound like this, very detailed and distinct, you really feel like just taking the loops as is, no chops, and building a song.
So what’s the final verdict?
Straight up, no question, without a doubt, 5 out of 5 subs. Period. End of discussion.
A producer will be busy for months using these loops, like I said, each one is practically a song/track waiting to happen. The 200 loops are NOT variations of the same loop, in most cases each loop is a completely different idea, I really like that.
Instead of 4-10 variations of the same loop or riff, you get 200 different ideas to mess with.
This raises the stock in addition to the fact that the loops themselves are long, 4-8 bars or so, and very well produced.
It’s no question motinsamples aims to be a major player in the sample pack game for a long time…I’ve yet to come across anything form them I didn’t like, or would improve or do differently.
That says a lot.
So the next time you’re looking to sexy out your tracks, make sure you checkout the soul delite keys, trust me, you’ll love em.
