Our first Chillwave release made Sample Magic history, outselling every library in our catalogue and staying in the charts for over a year.
Now the original production team revisit the same sepia ground for their next essential outing, loaded with 1.8GB worth of retro melodics, beach-hazed beats and tape-saturated music loops inspired by the best of 80s synth pop, chillout, indie and nu-wave.
Featuring even more sounds, even more inspiration kits and even more drum hits – as well as bonus MIDI files and new arps, fills and basslines folders – Chillwave 2 is the result of a two-year production love affair fostered by a host of second-hand synths, garage-sale guitar pedals and battered outboard.
Loops are offered in 90 and 100bpm tempo groups.
Drum Loops > 240+ cassette-deck drum loops and lost-summer grooves. 8-bit re-sampling and Casio processing inject every frequency with organic sweetness. Beats are offered with kick-free, perc-only and stripped variants for maximum arrangement freedom.
Drum fills > Choice selection of tried and fested tom fills for the turnarounds.
Inspiration Loops > 44 packed folders of sepia song-starters. Basslines, synths, arps, atmospheres, pads, guitars, music loops - they're all here. Use them as they are, or treat them as crate-dug vinyl cuts. Re-work them for 1,000s of new progressions. All loops supplied with bonus MIDI for supreme flexibility.
Bass Loops > Live indie and synth low-enders to underpin the groove.
Synth & Key Loops > Drifting toplines, wave-bent synths and classic progressions: key-labeled hooks aplenty.
Arps & Sequences > Moog runs, sultry sequences and neon cascades. 70+ rhythmic melodics.
Guitar Loops > Cracked soundscapes, wavering chords and hazy reverses to bury in the mix.
Vocal Loops > Fractured choirs, re-modelled vox and washed-out sung-phonics: concentrated soul in every hook.
Dust and Found Sound Loops > Rainy beaches, dust roads, twilight cafés and more: backing beds in search of melodic reclinees.
Chords > Craft your own progressions with this 110-strong chord vault of stacked, resampled and effected one-shots, each trembling with detail. Many offered with different chordal variants (including major, minor, 7, 9), with extra folder for tempo-synced fx. Just sample and go.
Drum Hits > 330+ masterfully sculpted one-shots (folders for kick, snare, clap, toms, hats (open, closed, cymbals), percussion) offer beat-builders that rare mix of effortless usability and sonic integrity. From layered Linn Drums to vintage snares recorded in our LA studio, every hit is passed through our much-imitated, yet-to-be-bettered outboard chain.
