Function Loops Free Female Vocals Pack
ln honor of the Easter holiday, Function Loops offered us the gift of female vocals: 200 WAV loops, all set at 121bpm and key labeled. 75 of these loops are dry (uneffected), while another folder includes the same 75 vocal phrases but with some reverb, delay, or other effects applied. The remaining 50 “FX Hits” are heavily echoed short vocal bursts.
The whole package takes 450 MB unzipped, and get it soon. Since it was an Easter special, I can’t guarantee that Function Loops will keep it up forever.
New Sounds.com Free Sample Collections
In case you haven’t signed up for a Sounds.com membership, or have not been keeping up with the free collections the service regularly dishes out, here’s a quick round-up of the free Sounds.com highlights from this and the last few weeks. For all of these collections, go their web pages to play audio demos or to audition the samples before downloading.
36 live recorded drum loops and fills from top hip-hop/R&B drummer Dylan Wissing (Alicia Keys, John Legend, Drake). If you like the Stax label sounds and late ‘60s Otis Redding, you’ll want these sounds in your life.
Here’s a surprisingly huge free collection of deep house/house loops and one-shots from Paradise Audio. Melodic Deep Vibes comprises 572 samples, including bass, drums, melody, vocal, and live instrument loops, as well as drum and FX one-shots. Besides just synths and drums, you’ll hear piano, guitar, horn and strings loops.
These 48 sounds take loops and drum/percussion hits from various styles such as techno, trap, funk, and others, with the idea that you would put together three 16-drum pad kits out of them.
Here’s 26 monster drum loops from producer Snipe Young (Nikki Minaj, Lil Jon, E-40, Toni Braxton, etc.). The mostly acoustic drum loops focus on slow, concentrated energy and deep, dark grooves for hip-hop, trip-hop, and downtempo genres.
