Soul­ful Trap £35

Computer Music - - Reviews -

Suc­cess­fully mix­ing smooth soul stylings with the glum flavours of trap, SM’s hy­brid li­brary houses 851 sam­ples, 174 MIDI files and a hand­ful of pre­sets for Mas­sive, Serum, Spire and Sy­lenth1. The stemmed drum loops (at 80 and 125bpm) are the head­line, with the pro­duc­ers demon­strat­ing their mas­tery of dy­nam­ics and spa­tial­is­ing; but there’s a ton of qual­ity melodic ma­te­rial to be plun­dered, too, in­clud­ing Rhodes licks, pads, icy FM tones and heav­ily pro­cessed vox. There are no bass loops, mind, but that doesn’t sig­nif­i­cantly de­tract from this es­o­teric tour de force. www.sam­
