It’s friday, it’s Big Fish time!
Today I am checking out something a little different.
It’s a construction kit type of product, but with a twist….NO DRUMS
let’s check it out
What is Urban Inspiration?
It is a deep collection of urban/hip hop melodies and loops, no beats, no drums, just the sauce.
It’s for those that don’t or rarely ever use drumloops, or those that have an extensive collection of drumloops and just need some stuff to lay over them.
It’s got keys, bass, synths, strings, brass, flutes, guitars, and fx….but no drums, no percussion, and no drumloops.
It’s pretty much what I do to any library I get, I take them out of construction kits, put them in folders according to their kind, and most times delete the drum loops.
Sometimes I keep a few and make a drum kit, but you know what I mean. This is nothing but the melodies, ready to loop, slice, chop, or splice into your next track
- Content: 50 construction kits, over 1.03gb of wav files (smaller sizes for rex and apple)
- Format: apple loops, rex, wav
- Price: $59.95
How does it sound?
It’s sounds pretty good, pretty much like what you’d expect.
It’s well produced with a lot of variety. Honestly, it sounds like a construction kit library wit the drums missing.
Not that you’ll actually miss them, but it’s put together just like any other construction kit library, 3-5 loops or more in a kit, various parts of the track.
There’s enough here to please pretty much anyone, from the experimental edgy synth lovers, to the mellow minor chord lovin hip hop producers.
They even through a bunch of hits and stabs in there, for those that like that choppy east coast style.
This collection is made up of pristinely recorded audio with enough variety in there for it not to get old fast.
So what’s the bottom line?
It’s a decent library, pretty much on par with most of the other libraries available from Big Fish.
It’s not the cream of the crop, top of the heap, but it’s a good collection of very usable sounds and fresh production
One thing I didn’t like is the fact that, like construction kits, the loops don’t always start on the first measure of a bar.
No problem really, but since it’s all melodies, I would have preferred it to be a bunch of loops that start on the 1, however that’s easy to work around, especially when you’re chopping them up.
I give this library 4 out of 5 subs, I like the fact that they made a library just for the melodies, many of us prefer it this way as we have our own library of drums.
Definitely check it out if your looking for some riffs and loops to add to your collection, the price proves you don’t have to break the bank to get a large collection of usable loops.
