BOMB SQUAD: Tactical Beats And Sample Artillery contains a massive array of over 1GB of original BOMB SQUAD audio samples exclusively sound designed and engineered by Hank Shocklee for Loopmasters. Sampling in music is now a part of the mainstream culture and Hank Shocklee is responsible for bringing the art of sampling to the forefront by creating techniques such as filtering, multiband micro-loop sampling, introducing the use of sine waves to create kick drums and bass lines, truncating and mapping samples on keyboards and drum machines and using tuning to create warping in the late 80's–early 90's. With Shocklee's creation of the group Public Enemy and his Bomb Squad production unit these techniques were introduced to the world stage via his landmark albums with Public Enemy such as "It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back" and "Fear Of A Black Planet", two albums which consistently rank high amongst most of the 'greatest albums of all time' lists such as those by Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, VH1, Vibe, Mojo, NME, The Village Voice and many others.
Shocklee's name became synonymous with sampling shortly after creating the BOMB SQUAD style. He has been at the centre-point of debates on copyright laws and studied by pop culture historians and academics alike. As a constant developer of numerous audio production and sampling techniques, he has been both an inspiring force for music producers and a disruptor of music industry politics.

Anti - Tank Weapons
Originally designed for World War 2, these weapons were for penetrating large assault vehicles, jeeps and tanks. These weapons had to be mobile and capable of firing large ammunition clips. We have gone to the next level in our research and present to you additional rounds of newly created weapons for those heads that still need convincing. These loops will surely penetrate even the most critical of enemies.
The main purpose of sniper weapons is to destroy valuable targets at extended ranges with precise hits. Most targets being human beings, criminals, enemy assets, terrorists or even officials. This carefully selected arsenal of weapon one-shots are to be used in conjunctioon with your arsenal of traditional weapons. Designed as dirty camoflauge, layer these with your often used shiny and clean kicks, snare, hi hats, toms and miscellaneous goodies.
One of the oldest, most often used weapons in tactical deployment. First developed in 1980 form the infamous Roland 808. Here we crafted these 30-70 Hz sub bass frequencies and have designed them to resonate subs and assault your competition with massive low end energy.
These non-lethal weapons were designed for crowd control, riots and protest demonstrators. They include rounds of rubber bullets, sonic booms, high frequency piercing blasts and electromagnetic pain inducing frequencies designed to leave the victim feeling very uncomfortable. These high impact, sonic structure have been created to used as noises, effects, dissonant transitions, ambient soundscapes and chords.
A series of weapons for close range work, these glitchy, screechy noises come in handy for use as cymbal crashes, transitions, drop outs and even background sound for hooks. The percussion, sound effect loops have been added for automatic weaponry when you need that little extra something that will render your audience dizzy from the onslaught breakdown mayhem.

According to Shocklee, "I'm always in the studio experimenting with sound and wanted to put out a project for the music producers and music production fans. All the samples in this pack were created by synthesis design and effects automation to create a more natural and organic sound with the use of analogue effects recording techniques in a digital environment. I want to show people an inside look to the process and also make an interactive album by releasing the samples in my upcoming project ahead of time for anyone to use. Loopmasters has a high standard of quality and is the best sample company out here and I'm excited to be partners with them".
