Sonic Me­chan­ics – Boom Bap Breaks 2 | £14.95

Future Music - - REVIEWS - Roy Spencer

www.loop­mas­ The ‘Boom Bap’ era of hip-hop was char­ac­terised by its neck-snap­ping drums, some­thing this pack prom­ises, and de­liv­ers, in spades. Com­pris­ing around 140 loops rang­ing from 60-120BPM, as well as 300 lay­ered hits, th­ese drums have been pro­grammed with ex­pert knowl­edge and pro­cessed through an ar­ray of iconic vin­tage out­board gear to make sure that cov­eted neck-snap ef­fect is present and cor­rect. The flavour moves from jazzy to funky, and each loop is beg­ging to be slot­ted into your pro­duc­tions. If you have itchy fin­gers, though, the real fun is had craft­ing in­di­vid­ual snares and kicks into your own pat­terns. Be­sides the WAV files, you get five sam­pler patches for EXS24, Kon­takt 3+ and Halion, as well. Now go get wicked! VERDICT 8
