The emphasis of this download pack is on experimental breaks and beats, while retaining a good dose of funk and groove. The loops build on ideas from IDM, techno and hip-hop to create an original collection of warped percussive sounds. The consistent use of timestretching, granular synthesis and programmed beat deconstruction techniques makes for a futuristic sounding download pack.
The loops are ideal for layering on top of other beats and textures. For the more experimental producers, they also lend themselves nicely to beat slicing, pitch shifting and other DSP trickery. Lastly, the beats can be used for spicing up hip-hop rhythms with a touch of glitch. All loops contain a convenient BPM tempo indication in the track title.
The Atypical Audio website provides previews of the loops as well as a Glitch Gumbo free download pack. This pack contains similar sounding loops made during the production of Glitch Gumbo Vol 1. Separate sounds are also made available for free in the form of two kits for Native Instruments' Battery. All files can be downloaded from the Atypical Audio website.
